  • god last time a freind took me to a club ( i am married and have kids ) but it was her b day and i gave her the choice were to go. i felt so out of place i was only like 27-28. and i felt fat with all the skinny minis grinding all about. lol. in the end i told her i love u but i cant go to a club again a bar fine not a club and she was ok with that. but she also understood i have kids. so i cant go out on a whim anymore. i would tell her same i love you your great but i have kids and have to get up early and its not as fun anymore. you just have to wait she will see what its like one day we all grow up at diffrent times. and stay firm im sorry but i cant dont let her talk u into it. u will end up starting at square one all over again. just be honest. my cousin was a partyer but she had kids she grew up after 2 years of kids and partying she got tired. and couldnt get sitters cheap anymore. good luck hun xo

  • You can find things to do together that you can both enjoy. obviously you're not into the club scene anymore and she is... surely you have more in common after all these years...

  • Hi, as I 've figured out, life changes as you grow up, have a family, etc. I think this is growin pains for you. You are committed to your family now and going out to party is a thing of the past. Maybe she has to hear this from you.... It's ok to still have fun, but you are now the role model for your kids. You will have to balance her somehow by still getting together, but she has to realize that you have other priorities. And that' ok!!! Actually it's great!!! You are putting your family above everything else!!!!

  • I would ask her over to watch a Lifetime movie. I'm not about to change my life and go to loud clubs for someone else's pleasure. Be yourself. Tell her NO when you don't want to go somewhere. That would be silly and irresponsible for you to stay up till 7 a.m. just so she can party. Meanwhile you have a family to tend to.
