My two friends two of my friends WordReference Forums


What’s the etiquette here? Isn't one supposed to go through the mutual friend, and not behind her back? Dear E. Jean: A few weeks after our wedding, I learned that friend A and friend B got together after they met at our reception (one of them mentioned it to me). They had a great time together and are planning to hang out again, and I’m incredibly jealous! Aren’t I supposed to be invited, too? Isn’t there an unspoken rule about how to conduct oneself in these situations?

The Etiquette for Having Your Friends Befriend Each Other

Isn’t one supposed to go through the mutual friend, and not behind her back?

I know it’s normal for adults to meet new friends through their social networks, but I want to tell them I feel disrespected.

Social media has turned all of us into thin-skinned little dorks who spend half our lives worrying because we can’t get our friends to mesh together, and the other half fretting when they leave us out. It would have been nicer (and more proper) had they invited you, yes but stop blubbering. Rejoice that you have friends. Take them to brunch.
