Did they actually want me to come? Watch

    I have this group of friends that I only see 1-2 times a year.
    I know some of them are closer with each other than they are with me and they had organised a camping holiday

    Anyway, when we were out the topic came up so I asked where they were going and when. They then invited me along but it felt like a sympathy invite because they have been planning for a while and only invited me along (I think) because they felt awkward talking about it in front of me....They like me but I just feel it was a sympathy invite.

    Do you agree?

    If you feel a chain of events may get you into trouble then yes and you should try filling your time up better because they're probably sneaky.

    About them or whether the invite was a sympathy invite?

    It really is a hard one, however I think if they really didn't want to invite you then they definitely would have been more careful as to not discuss it in front of you. I wouldn't sweat it, plans are difficult and maybe they had only loosely discussed it and hadn't got round to inviting everyone yet... I get this feeling all the time but I would definitely go as you're probably just overthinking it, and by not going you'll be further distancing yourself. I hope this helps!
