Friend Won't Attend Birthday Party

Group Therapy: Friend Won't Attend My Birthday Party

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

My birthday is coming up and one of my close girl friends doesn't want to come because I am also inviting her ex boyfriend to come.

I am good friends with both of them. He broke up with her about 5 months ago and they dated for 3 years. She is still not going because apparently she is not over him and I really want her to be there. I feel like she should just suck it up and pretend that everything is OK for a few hours because it's my birthday party.

Am I being unreasonable? All my friends seem to think so. But it's my special day. On everyone else's special day we do things we don't like to do, but we suck it up because it's THEIR DAY. So what do you guys think? Am I being unreasonable?
