Today, I learned that his girlfriend contacted my friends, personally via individual emails, and invited them to her party.
I am quite upset about this and am not sure my friend realizes his girlfriend not only went against our agreement, but also did something I thought was an etiquette taboo. Given these people weren't on her guest list and are good friends of mine, it seems rude she would make the contact.
Am I reading this wrong or over-reacting?
All of this transpired less than one week before the party and I am sitting here with decorations and party items feeling bulldozed.
But I thought they were "my/our" friends.
Be the bigger person here, and let this go. Save the decorations for another party for a different person.
She has revealed herself, so be aware. I think this was a control issue on her part more that wanting to throw a good party.
Smile and carry on.
I agree that she felt uncomfortable with someone else you caring for her boyfriend that way and she felt it inappropriate.
I think you were genuinely being a mate and I am sure you are peed off at her OTT behavior.
I think she sees you as a treat and by you throwing him a party showed her up, it would be unbearable for her to let you go ahead.
I personally would stand tall everybody will know what happened and those that care don't matter, and those that matter don't care!!!
Be friendly and enjoy the party entertain her comment in a positive way on the do.
I guess your friendship with this man is been tested so be the friend and bier person.
