    My sister is in her second year of uni. She lives with three other girls and it seems their friendship has gone south. She doesn’t know why.

    It appears that the three girls went to a gig/concert in a neighbouring city and didn’t invite her. She only found out when they came back. She was on the phone crying her eyes out at the event.

    To me that sounds quite harsh, I might invite one of my housemates out if I have a spare ticket to something but I wouldn’t invite every other house mate and leave someone. I get that they do not have to invite her.

    She asked me for advice and I told her to ask them why they did that and what is up with the friendship? I couldn’t think of anything else.

    Does anyone have any other thoughts?

    She just needs to ask her why they didnt invite her I guess if shes that bothered, it might not be anything malicious, could be they couldnt get another ticket if they brought them last minute/from someone selling the tickets, could be that your sister said at some point she didnt like gigs/the band they were going to see so assumed she wouldnt want to go, could be travel/sleeping arrangements if they were going by car or staying somewhere overnight etc etc there are lots of good reasons or it could be that they didnt want her to go, though I wouldnt say this means the friendship is going south just because she didnt get invited to one social thing, thats a bit dramatic, within my own friendship group we dont always invite each other to everything for various reasons and no one takes offence as we dont mean in in a malicious way

    Personally I would just let it go as its a one off, if it happens one or two more times (in the near future ie the next 2 social things they all do) then I would ask

    If shes been cold for a little while (say more than a week) then your sister should just ask her why shes being cold (or coming across as being) to her
