    The set up: a couple times a year I usually throw a get-to-gether at my favorite craft brewery. I pay for pitchers & appatizers and have an open invite on my facebook page and email / mail / call people that I haven't seen in a while so they feel they're welcome and wanted.

    Most of the RSVP yes or maybe, but never show up.

    I ran into a buddy at the gym to day, who's one of those no RSVP, no show Facebook friends, who just finished his masters and said he missed me at his "thing". I was like "well I didn't see a where and when" so I didn't know. and he was like "yeah, I just went out started drinking and people called me".

    what the fuck?

    We're college / Facebook friends and I don't have his number, and he seemed a little put out that I didn't show up. Is this really a thing? are you supposed to call and try and figure out what's happening when someone can't even say when and where?

    You're paying? I'll be there! icon_biggrin.gif

    In regards to your friend. He sounds a little selfish and expects the world to revolve around him. icon_neutral.gif

    I dunno... some of these guys might assume that you're part of their digital twitter-cloud or something. Always living in their present moment.

    Sounds like the guy is just operating on a different frequency. Maybe a different band and mode.
