I am so upset about this. Dh's friend's wife, S and I got along great and became good friends. However they moved away five years ago to a different state and then it was occasional phone calls, rare visits and Facebook conversations. I thought we would keep each other informed about major events in each other's lives. It turns out she just had a baby which I found out through her FB announcement. I am upset that she did not tell me she was pregnant or anything at all and I am stunned she had a baby. I know she is totally within her rights to inform whomever she wants but I thought she'd tell me. I vented to DH about this and he does not understand why I am so upset and even angry. I just cannot be stoical like him.
This happened with another neighborhood friend whom I got along great with and again I was stunned when she told me only the birth announcement.
Can you tell me what to make of these friendships? Do I not inform these friends of the events in my life now? I feel like an idiot because I would call them fairly regularly to keep the friendship going. Maybe they thought I was being too needy or something????
Thanks so much for your thoughts,
