Anybody else here get treated like a leper around the holidays?
It's bad enough to be excluded from many parties because one is a single, older woman, but sometimes my relatives treat me the same way.
Especially at Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving used to be when my brothers would go to their in-laws, and my family got together for Christmas. Years ago, my single friends and I would get together and have our own "singles Thanksgiving". Now I think I'm the only single one left and most have moved away. Now my brothers' in-laws are either gone or the dinner has moved to my brother's houses. My brothers live within half an hour of me.
I haven't heard from them yet and might still get invited for Thanksgiving at the last minute if some other relative reminds one of them that I'm alone.
The same thing happened last year, and I said thank you, but I'd rather stay at home.
This sounds totally pathetic! LOL!
Does this snubbing/forgetting happen to anybody else out there in singles land?
