Party Invite malfunction

I just got my significant other PSO2 to play with me. For some reason when we try to interact with each other in game, we get a message that says "You can't invite that player to your party st this time." We can play with other friends just fine, even use Xbox Party Chat, but when we try to join the same party we get similar messages. This even happens when we have a friend host a party, and try to invite us both.

Check if your muted that can make the game do that sometimes

If you muted someone on your Xbox Account, they get automatically blocked by PSO2. It's also in my pinned guides & help mega-thread:
