I can certainly relate with you there.
I recently stopped talking to my old friends from High School, because it seemed they liked to ignore me as well. I moved out for the first time two years ago, and not a single friend has ever shown up to my apartment no matter how many times I've invited them. But they seemed to have no problem jumping across town to visit others, and I would often join them (despite my resentment). After many times being dissapointed and trying to fix the problem on my end, I realized that while it is within their right to not acknowledge my presence, it is also my right to leave.
But you have to realize that there are two parties involved, them and you. If you find this consistently happening to you, make sure you go over what the potential causes are, and work to fix them.
Also, take it from me, do not give up on social interaction. When you stop interacting with people, it drags you down a deep and dark rabbit hole that is very hard to escape from. Instead, focus on creating a fresh start, and try and work from there.
Or, if you prefer. Talk to the people in your social group, and ask if anything is wrong. In my experience, it didn't amount to much, but I would argue it is at least worth the shot. It gives them a chance to defend themselves at least.
And hey, if nothing else, being a lone wolf is not so bad either. Learn to love your own company, develop some hobbies, and gain confidence. If you do those things, you'll find people will naturally flock to you. Try to develop a presence.
I agree with you. There has to be something that I’m doing or giving off that makes others react that way towards me. I really don’t know what it is though, and except for being very quiet sometimes and most people I know being outspoken, I can’t think of anything.
I’m working on being more outgoing. I’m sure getting better at it will help in the long run when I meet new people. Right now I’m still on the fence about whether it’s worth it, though.
I tried addressing the issue before with some people and apparently there is nothing wrong from their side. But they didn’t think about looking at their behaviour towards me or asking themselves why I might be feeling that way, either.
Your friends don’t sound like they were really your friends either. I completely understand that you stopped talking to them. I think if people consistently show that they don’t want to make time for you and treat you badly, the healthiest way of handling it is to step away and move on.
I hope you have better people in your life now.
