My best friend, J, has been going out with this guy for almost three years, and they're insanely in love. They're still in the 'honeymoon stage' of their relationship. She's really happy with him and I'm happy that she's happy, because her parents - her dad especially - are really overbearing and really push her hard.
However, I feel like I and my other best friends play second fiddle to her boyfriend, as it's an absolute chore to get her to come out; she almost always says "No, sorry", and then a week later, she's talking about going out to dinner with her boyfriend or he's taken her to one of his clubs, and I just feel... . And then when I feel like that, I feel like I'm being petty.
In the last two years, I can think of only two times that J has willingly come out with us, whereas I've been out with A and other friends loads of times; I go round to A's house a lot as well, and she mine. Still, as I said, I'm happy that she's happy, but that still doesn't mean I'm not hurt by it.
So... how do I stop being so bothered by it??
I feel like I'm playing second fiddle
