Well, now what is the likelyhood of her accepting if you do extend a personal invitation to her. Through the years you have reached out to her personally, only to be ignored or rejected.

I personally think if you do send her a personal invite, she will find a reason to reject it. Most likely she will say, you should have done that from the get go. Or that your invite was done in a rude manner.

But, if connecting with her is very important to you. Then perhaps you should send the personal invite.

This honestly sounds like a game she is playing.

I'm with the others here on this one...you've done enough & don't need to send her a special invite.

I have learned that silent treatment is intended to pull you in. If you don't react, it doesn't work.

You did all that any nice person would do. She's being a crybaby. Your DH shouldn't be trying to make you feel guilty. Perhaps you should let him read this post and he will see for himself, that most people would extend themselves just about the amount that you did.
