How do you feel about them? From a person who hates attn on myself & doesn't have friends really, I don't care for them personally. My BF's mom called me 2 days ago. (We don't talk really, but not for any negative reason.) She & my BF's sis are throwing a surprise party for my BF & his twin bro...great! It's in 3 wks. So of course, she wants me to drive & pretend like I'm taking BF somewhere when in fact, we're going to the sis' house where the party will be. If any of you have read my past posts, I can't stand my BF's family. They aren't warm, friendly, & sincere, so over the yrs, I've only gone to a handful of get togethers. If I didn't say anything to them at all at the get together, they'd totally ignore me, which is why I don't go in the 1st place. My BF is definitely the black sheep of his family & not like their smug, think they're better then everyone selves. Also, these people love having any excuse for a party or get together & w/ a family so lg, there's always someone's b-day, etc. I kind of tried to get out of it & said that him & I were kind of planning things too (since my b-day's 2 wks later), but his mom was so much about "getting her boys together again for their b-day"...like they haven't seen ea other in a long time. Just in June, the sis planned a surprise b-day party for their mother. I went & it went about how I expected...a whole night of no one talking to me, except 1 person because we're stuck at the same table together. I reached out to be cordial & put on a smile of course, but I might as well be the wallpaper on the wall. They may think I'm stand-offish because they'll never see how they are towards me. I'll take my camera & mk the best of it.
