  • Good Luck. We have friends but none that live close to us. He's fine with not having any which bothers me because i love being around other people.

  • My husband is the same way. I just do what I want and invite people over. I just tell him what I'm doing and if he doesn't like it to bad, I do it anyways.

  • Nothing you can do about it really. Just don't let him ruin YOUR fun. I'm the same way as your husband. I just let my BF do his own thing, when he's at home, we spend our time together.

  • We really only have time for family. My DH only has Sunday off so he normally plays with the baby. We get out more when the weathers warmer. Maybe thats whats up with him, a little winter blues.

  • My husband doesn't care either. So I take charge of social interactions. I arrange with friends to have them over or to go out. Until recently, all friends were mine, although he gets along fine with everyone, he'd be perfectly content to just stay at home on our own. As I write this I am thinking of a number of Questions I've read on CM where the wife or girlfriend is complaining that her guy won't stay home and only wants to be out with his buddies, so maybe we have the better deal. LOL! Anyway, make friends, then do the inviting and arranging. If he refuses to go out as couples, then go out with your friends on your own.

  • My fiance is the same way. And judging by all the others who answered that their SO is the same way, maybe its the new norm. for men lol. I have no clue. DF says after work he just wants to be with us and relax. Makes sense I guess.

  • My hubby too. Don't get me wrong, he likes to have people over occasionally but he could really care less. I think he has 3 or 4 people he considers friends because they are my friends husbands lol. They do get along great though when they are together so I just keep making plans and telling him about them after they are made :)

  • make some friends on your own. If he's working then find a moms group or some moms with kids in the neighborhood. Or call some of your old friends from before you were with him. just because HE doesn't want friends doesn't mean YOU can't have any!

  • my husband is the same way!!! he had a group of 5 guys that he hung out with everyday when we first started dating and he tells me that he feels like he is a father now so he can't just go hang out with his friends especially if i can't go cuz we can't find a sitter and i have told him over and over again that I don't care and I want him to have friends but, he still won't go out with them...it annoys the crap out of me especially when i want to go somewhere with my friends because i feel guilty that he never goes out with his!!!! DRIVES ME CRAZY!
