Does you DH have a buddy?

My DH does not have any friends to speak of. The friends we do have are my friends and their SO's or DH's. We were talking tonight and I said I think it is common once you are married that men generally do not have a "best bud". Thoughts?

  • I am the one without a "best bud". My college roommates are my best friends but they are out of state. My dh on the other hand has 2 brothers and they are all great friends. I get annoyed by it at times. (but sometimes I think it is jealousy as well)

  • My DH has a bunch of friends...only 1 or 2 that are really close though. I have a pretty good group of girls too that I adore. We are a very social couple.

  • My husband definitely has buddies, but doesn't get to see them much as they live too far. I also have buddies but don't see them as I work too much.

  • my hubby has a few really good friends and since we're having a baby he has found more daddy friends so thats cool. But he does not talk to them all of the time and even his best friend just talk every once in a while and see each other when one another. We spend most of our free time together, but we make trips and we see his friends mostly then, every one went on diff. paths so they all live in diff. areas for college, work, kids, etc.

  • My husband has lots of friends, and stays in perfect contact with his real friends from Houston as well. There's a group of about 6 that he talks to on the phone all the time and then locally he has another group of 6 or more. He hangs out with the buddies maybe once a month or every six weeks or so - and talks to his friends from Houston on the phone all the time. His best friend, his best man is still his best friend.

  • My DH has lots of buddies haha Im the one with lack of them. I settled down young and wanted different things. My friends are all still out partying. I dont see them much anymore. Dh's friends on the other hand are either goofy nice guys who have never even had a date let alone a GF or they have families too

  • Actually, I am the one with very few friends, Our friends are all my husbands friends, they are a small tight knit group of 5 including my Hubs LOL. Its their girlfriends that eventually become my friends. I wish they would all get married and have kids already so we could all be on the same page of life haha
