Nobody came. Nobody.
It was my birthday. I booked the restaurant after getting the RSVPs. I sat there alone, at a table for 10. Absolutely alone.
The restaurant staff were horribly distressed for me and it hurt seeing the pitying looks, so I left after an hour, after nobody answered my calls or my texts.
I could see they’d read them. I’ve blocked all of them. Every single last one. I am literally alone.
- At least you blocked them. I think it’s refreshing to know you have 0 friends as opposed to not knowing 10 “friends” don’t actually care that much about you.
- Happy birthday!
This happened to a co worker of mine. I know people RSVPed to say they were coming because we all worked in a close environment and it was the talk of the office.
I went with my partner. No one else showed up. I ended up calling a friend when the clock kept ticking and no one else came and they kindly came at the last minute. Which made 3 of us and an extremely upset host. My co worker sat and wailed in her bathroom (house party) for most of the night, she was humiliated.
Really though all the people who lied and said they were going should have been ashamed of themselves. It was disgraceful on their part and I’ll never forget it. My opinion of them not the host has never been the same. I’m glad you blocked them.
Try and spoil yourself with something for you and move on to people who deserve you
- In a way, you’ve been set free… You’re now free to cut those people out of your life, and find people who will be your real friends.
- There’s always at least someone that will care out there, you’re going to find them eventually, keep your head up until then.
Things will get better, happy birthday.
