OT: I just got invited to a bachelorette party

Yep, and old friend from high school is getting married, and another old friend invited me to the bachelorette party. I'm not sure why since I'm more of acquaintances with them now, and it wasn't a broad invitation so I she must have meant to invite me.

I can't decide whether I'm depressed or pleased. LOL

We were all partiers, and now, 10 years later, they still are and I'm not. So here's this invitation, that says bring $30 dollars, a set of 'play' clothes and then clothes to go out in. It's going to be rad and awesome and great and I'm not going. LOL I just can't. I mean, I'm almost 30 so on one hand I feel like I'm too old for stuff like that but on the other hand I'm ONLY almost 30. Twelve years ago, I was the party. LOL

I think I'm having a mid life crisis. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't go out late with friends, and all these friends I used to have still do, even the ones with kids. It's like, who has the right idea, me or them?

LOL Anyone hear what I'm saying? 8)

I was never a party girl, but I totally get what you are saying. My friends are all 30+ also, with kids, and still think getting drunk is the thing to do. I can't believe how much we have changed in opposite directions.
So yeah, unless I was super close with them, I doubt I'd go also. I *think* everyone who would invite me now is married, so I should be clear. Haha!

I don't blame you for not going! I wouldn't either unless it was for someone I was super close too.

Thanks, ladies. I was having an idenity crisis for a moment. 'Sadly,' I'm so out of the loop that I was like, $30 to charity? What in the- OHHHHHHHH. DUH!' LOL I have no interest in a stripper, guy or girl! LOL Or drinking, or leaving Hubby with a breastfeeding infant, all night. XD

^ oh, lol. I'm just getting the party clothes, $$ for strippers, etc!
I'm gonna edit my initial answer...I probably wouldn't even do that for someone I was close too!

LOL. I am almost 31. I am going out next week with my girls to bar hop and hang out. =D Can't wait.

You aren't too old to go out and have a great time if you wanted but if you don't really want to go, then don't.

I'm 26 and I didn't go to a bachelorette party I was invited to a few months ago.

Lol! I thought it was for drinks? I didn't even think of stripper. This is why I don't go "out" lol

"I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't go out late with friends"

Same thing, and I'm 24. I've never been like that, though. I do drink, but just a few drinks here or there. Never been drunk.
