Do you go out with your friends? How much?

I am trying to go out 2 times a month, nothing wild but you know a ladies night. Meaning AC or dinner and drinks-although I am not a drinker.

I would like to go shopping at least 2 times a month with friends.

Do you think it is too much, I am single as of now and want to keep it that way for now, focus on me.

I have not done that in 7/8 years and really enjoy my time.

  • That seems like a lot. I go out once a month. However, if you are going out while your kids are with their dad, AND it's not affecting your finances, or your mood..(do you get mean if you can't go?)

    I guess you could.

  • I haven't been out with friends since I got pregnant with my oldest - 5 years ago... Since then I have been full time mommy.

  • No, they still party too wild. I'm talking kids running around while my "friends" and their friends do drugs and get falling down drunk.

  • Anonymous,

    You might want to make more friends who have matured with you, not saying forget your old friends. I have friends still like that, we do lunch or they are my shopping buddies.

    Good luck!!!!

  • Me and my fiance go out and party with our friends once a month. My mil lives an hour away and is always begging to take dd for a night. DD always has lots of fun, It doesn't hurt anyone and we enjoy having a night to unwind and just have fun.
    This month is a bit different. Last weekend was my birthday, and also our combined bachelor/bachelorete party the same night.
    We are getting married on the 21st so dd will go home with nana that night after the wedding.
    And then the following weekend we are going on a honeymoon, so my mother is taking her for the whole thing.

    I do feel guilty about having dd go with nana or grandma so much this month, but it's probobly never going to happen again lol.

  • We go out whenever we can make plans. Usually a few times a year.
