My friend keeps trying to invite himself to Comicon
I'm going to Comicon this year and am going with a cousin of mine, but I have this one friend who apparently keeps trying to invite himself to come along with me. At first I brushed it off, but after a while of him hinting around about me inviting him it's starting to get really annoying.

I enjoy the friendship we have, and any other time I would most certainly love for him to come with me but I don't see my cousin a whole lot whereas with him, I talk to him everyday. So naturally, I want to spend some alone time with my cousin. Not only that, but if my friend goes he will only end up feeling like a third wheel because I will be more focused on my time with cousin and not him. And that's not fair to him.

I've told him if he wanted to go then it would be great to see him there, and that's up to him. If he wants to go, he'll have to go by himself or with someone else. That's not me brushing him off, just that I want to spend time with my cousin.

He's been pushy about it too making it very obvious that he wants me to invite him, but I'm starting to get fed up with it. I don't know if I should just ignore it, or if I should speak up and say something to him about it. I don't want to ruin the friendship we have, but at the same time he needs to understand and respect why I'm not inviting him. If it were any other year and my cousin wasn't going with me, then I would absolutely invite him.

Any advice?

Just tell him you want to spend time with your cousin alone.That should do the trick.

Re: My friend keeps trying to invite himself to Comicon
We're only friends, and no I'm not embarrassed of him by any means. It's just that my cousin is in the military and got back from being oversea a while back and I haven't seen my cousin in 4 years. I want to spend time with my cousin and it would be unfair to my friend because it would be me being more focused on my cousin and talking to my cousin then with my friend.

Re: My friend keeps trying to invite himself to Comicon
After reading that thread, I'm so done with my friend. He cut me out of his life once, now he's considering doing it again over something so stupid. Word of advice, if you are considering cutting one of your friends out of your life, then you're not a true friend to that person and would only do them a favor by getting out of their life.

I'm so disgusted by Bob and what he has said on there.

I don't know who his other friend is that is going, this is the first I've heard about it. Probably a friend of his I hadn't met.

My advice...let this be a lesson to you. Open honest and genuine communication in the beginning will usually solve all relationship issues up front before they become an issue, like you and him found yourselves in. hf

Tears are streaming down my face as I type this tonight, I'm completely devastated and shaking uncontrollably. My friend, Bob, is cutting me out of his life for something so stupid. My uncle warned me of this but I ignored him, but my uncle works for NASA and is an intelligent man so I should have listened to him.

Inside scoop:

Bob's already decided he's going to unfriend you, yes, that means on Facebook and everything!

He may send you a gift basket, but don't keep your hopes up.
