Random Question - I live with a roommate for the last 2 years now. We have become really good friends and she is like a sister to me. We used to hangout and do a lot of fun stuff before COVID. When I make a plan to do something during COVID, I always include her to do or go somewhere. Of late, when she makes plans, she goes on her own or if she goes with her friends (whom I know), she would not invite me. I feel left out and sad because of it. I think I should not feel that way as she can

I say this with all compassion, but do you think she just needs some space? I’m sure she enjoys your company but maybe she wants to focus on having her own life for a bit, especially since you two live together.

Yeah I wonder if you can just ask her like, “hey we haven’t gone out for a bit let’s do it I’m craving a good hangout!!”

Wouldn't it be a bit much to live together AND always hang out together? Some people just want more breathing room y'know.

Same feelings here. I think it bothers me because I go out of my way to include the other person. I know it’s supposed to be done without expectations and from the goodness of my heart - but it stings when not reciprocated

She can do whatever she wants. But sometimes I feel, that she could have atleast asked me, even if I dont end up going.

What’s to stop you from asking her to hang out? Also, like others have stated, sometimes being around the same person all the time can be a bit much.
