    Made this anonymous just in case.

    First off, I know this is pathetic and I don't care if you hate on this thread, I'm just looking for some advice.

    Recently, I've started to notice that a lot more people at my school are starting to have parties and I'm never invited, I have 5-6 GOOD/CLOSE friends but I'm not popular or particularly unpopular. Pretty much all my friends get invited but I never do, I always feel really jealous and I hear stories of what happened after and I just feel like I'm missing out (I'm 16). Am I missing out on much? Older people always talk about how fun and enjoyable their teenage years were - I haven't experienced anything like that before.

    Another thing is that I never really go out with my friends to their houses, the cinema or do anything with them really, I just don't go out much, I'm not very outgoing, I guess this could this be part of it?

    Any advice on what to do to try and get more involved with people?

    Pathetic - I know.

    Sounds like you just hang out with these people but their not actually your friends?

    I had the same predicament in sixth form, I hung out with these so called ''friends" but never invited me anywhere. So I just moved on and made new friends.

    If they genuinely are your friends ask them about going out and what their doing and if you can tag along etc..
