My oldest daughter usually has her special family activities (birthdays, etc) at her in-law's home, so we go there. And I had visited the home of my son's in-laws several times when I lived in AZ. There is light socializing, but no real in-law get togethers.

I tend to be introverted and shy, and hard to get to know.

We count our DIL's parents as friends and when we spent time in SC (where they live) we enjoyed many happy times with them.  They will be visiting on the west coast this summer, so we are looking forward to seeing them.  My SIL's mother passed away a few years ago and I have to admit we did not have much of a relationship with her - she was a recluse of sorts and refused all overtures we made.

They don't have partners now but I hope we can all get along one day!

No to one and yes to the other. One daughter's inlaws live about 2 hrs away from me and so far we are FB friends and have seen them when the grandkids were baptized. My other daughter is married to the son of my best friend. So although we don't hang out as families, my best friend and I have been known to hang out together. 

I am thinking that as the grandkds get older and have more events, us grandparents we get to know each other better.

No, not at all. We only socialize when we need to. We are courteous and such and so are they. Neither one of us is interested in being best friends. We get along well enough. We do not live near each other though. I think I like them better in smaller doses!

Only one son is married.
