Our expert says:
Its very understandable that you have been feeling left out. Though they're surely not coldly deciding to leave you out, they have been lucky enough to find a relationship that pleases and absorbs them, and you haven't yet done so for yourself. But you're wise not to rush into dating just for the sake of dating, and for deciding to wait for the right person for you. Its understandable for you to feel some envy, too ( funny how ENVY dopesn't sound quite as bad as Jealousy ). Clearly she can no longer celebrate her ""independence" along with you, as she's now chosen not to be so independent. A calm chat saying that you're happy for her, and pleeased to see her so happy, but that some of the displays of affection fo make you and some others feel a bit embarrassed, so paybe they could tone it down a little when with friends ( and anyhow, this generally fades out when the first wave of excitement wears off ) ; and that you feel a bit left out, and would like an occasional outing with her, if that's practical for her.
You would be less vulnerable in this way if your friendship with her had not been so exclusive, if you also developed other pals and friends, which may be a good way to move, now.
