How often do you and your girlfriends hang out?

I work and have an almost 5 year old. I don't have a lot of friends but was just wondering when do you make time for them. I can go a few weeks without any friends coming over. I am also pregnant with my second, but I have never really had a lot of girlfriends at all. I am shy and don't make friends that easy which is something I am working on but was just wondering what is a normal hang out and how do you balance that and getting dinner ready and your child ready for school and working?

  • We try to once a week or so - I have 5 kids and am a SAHM. We'll have dinner together or cocktails, and tell the kids that grownups need alone time. We try to go out once a month or so as well.

  • Depends on which group. I have a group of women I see every Tues and Thurs evening. Another group of women I see at church once a month on Sunday and frequently have dinner with on Wednesdays, even though it is at church. And a group of football finatics on Friday, and then there are the women that I see socially whenever I can. Friday's, I leave work early and gossip with a coworker for about and hour. I think it is only possbile for me by making friends with the women ( and men) who are already in the social situations I'm already involved in like 4H and sports, religious and political groups.
