  • Well, here's the scoop. I was married for several years at one point. I had a great friend and my husband had good friends. That was all fine. I got divorced and got kind of wild for a while. I only had one true friend that remains my friend today. Most wanted nothing to do with me once I got divorced for fear of me "going after their man", I am assuming. Anyway.. I found out who my friends were. So, I am now married again, but I don't associate with any friends and have not made any new friends. I like my life simple, relaxed and enjoyable. No complications. I have my family, I have my husband. That's about it.

    I guess what I am trying to say, is at some point you will outgrow this "going out" stuff. After all, relaxation, home, family and quiet are the good things in life!

  • once every 6-10 months. we take the kids out to chuck e cheese. i dont get much time away from home or time away from the kids. but hey, that's life! x)

    i do get kind of jealous though, since hubby is out almost every day with a friend while i take care of the kids.. but i've given up on that "it's not fair" fight & just learned to deal with it. it's not that bad, i just gotta trick myself into thinking it's fun! x)

  • Ditto anon, but I have never remarried. I have one friend that I have had for 20 years. She is not a best friend but one that knows me from being 20. young and carefree to being 40 and have baggage. I do go to her house and we have a good time but short of happy hour twice a year, I never go out.

  • I go out with friends about 6 times a year to the bar however, we're getting a bit old for this so we've cut down. Now we started to meet for coffee, movie or dinner, something more our age. We're all about 30!
