Hi ladies, in need of perspective. My sister & one of our close friend’s birthday overlap. I decided to treat them to a trip. I covered travel & shelter cost and asked they just take care of their own meals . Ofc I let them know this before and we were all cool. We had an amazing time! It was so fun and a trip to remember! At the end of the trip, the day before our flight home my friend asked me to send her the flight information.
Planned a trip for my girlfriend and I in April for her birthday.
Mid June her friend booked a trip and decided to come.
We decided to split everything 3 ways.
I got the rental car and Airbnb. We had plans to do 6 large activities while we were out here. Her friend throughout the entire weekend wanted to go clubbing instead so we did that. Last night we were supposed to go to dinner. They went out to get drinks while I went back to nap for a little. I wake up to meet them for dinner cont’d..

I live with my SO who I’ve been dating almost a year and a half. Everything’s been great, the spark just isn’t there as much.
