A friend of mine recently posted to a bunch of us that she wanted to plan another Girls Night Out and Couples Night Out soon and wanted to know what dates were NOT good for us.
I gave her a few dates and politely declined being included in a Couples Night since I do not have a SO. All the women, but one, in this particular group have husbands. The other one has a live in boyfriend. They are all great women, but I've only met them through Girls Night Out - I've never met their SOs (except my friend's husband and he's super nice). I live in a different town and have been included in their GNO each month since January. and this is how I got to know the other women.
2 weeks ago, my friend posted about an event this coming weekend, again tagging us girls in the post and I said, count me in. She said they were thinking of making it an all day Girls Day including a mani/pedi & lunch but I told her I couldn't make it to that part b/c my kids have their summer award swim meet the better part of the a.m. & early afternoon. I hadn't heard anymore details so I asked today if everyone was still in and she said yes and offered if I "wanted to ride with us, meet at our house." I responded, is this GNO or couples, she replied, well guys are coming but it's not a couples thing.
WHAT?! LOL What else is it? It's NOT that I can't hang out with a bunch of couples but I don't know, it just feels strange that I will be the only single/alone person in the group.
WWYD? Would you still go or just skip it this time around....I told her I would think about it and let her know. I'm torn because part of me says what the heck, it will be fun no matter what, but then that little 'low on self esteem these days' part of me says yeah, I'll be the loser that's not holding someone's hand...lol
So, I am curious, what others would do. Thanks!
