Sooo I am 22 years old, and for the last year or so I feel as though I havent wanted to go out on the weekends like I used to. Going to the bars/drinking/etc just isnt fun for me anymore especially because I am really into fitness and I don’t drink to keep my weight down. Ive kinda just gotten use to chillin in my pj’s in front of the computer/tv on weekends. I feel because I am 22 I should be going out more with friends…gettin crazy…whatever, but i just have no interest! Am I weird?? Any other girls feel this way?

I’m completely on the same page. I’m also 22, I sort of had my fun when I was a lot younger, and the energy expended is never worth the hangover. So I stay home and hang out with my fiancé and my dog and go to the gym. And I’m happy with that.

I’m 20…lol. I never want to do anything, and if I do it’s only because I need something. haha.

I so know how that is! I’m 23 and while I’ve never been one to go out at all, recently it’s lost pretty much all its appeal to me. I like going to our favorite sushi place and the bar next to my house, but other than that… no thank you! I’d rather snuggle 🙂

Glad to know I am not alone! I have tons of single friends and I am starting t find out that it is very ahrd to have single friends because they always want to go out get hammered and meet guys and I just dont find the fun in that anymore! 3 years ago this would have been a different answer! I had a lot of my fun when I was in my teens and these days I am just over it!

I am 23 and much prefer to stay at home with my Fiance and watch movies than go out. Lots of my friends think I am crazy but well drinking crazily and being super tired from staying out all night just does not interest me anymore.

I’m 23 (almost 24) and I never had the whole wanna go out and drink and get crazy thing. I was even in a sorority in college and my roommate and we went out basically once a week to the campus pub. Now that I’m engaged my FH and I still don’t go out and drink. It’s just not our thing – well I’m not a fan and he is basically allergic (being part asian he lacks the enzyme to brake it down. get’s bright red, sweats, sometime can’t breath right after only a drink). Everyone is different

I’ll be 32 in a week, and I miss going out!!!
Fiance and I are staying in to save money for the wedding, but we can’t wait for it to be over so we can have our active social lives back. We miss meeting up with our friends. We aren’t drinkers, though. We just like to get together with our friends.

i hate going out! disgusting bars in which you can feel the film of sweat in the air and overpriced well drinks just don’t cut it for me anymore. though, i do miss hanging out with friends since that’s what most people usually do when they hang out. i’d rather play board games.

Same here. Sometimes I feel like I should be going out, to be like the typical 23yr olds. But whenever my Fiance and I go out, we realize that we’d rather be home doing our thing. Lately it seems that when we do go to the bar it’s either middle age drunks that are there so really immature kids. I’d rather have friends come over to our house and have a good time.

I am definitely on this page too. I’m 21, and all my friends are single, and they definitely think I’m an old lady. Sadly, I’m sure they talk negatively about it behind my back, like I grew up too fast. But I just want different things now. Still, sometimes I force myself to go out just to prove to everyone I can still have a good time!

I wouldn’t give up my young 20s in the bar for anything. My friends and I are big dancers and I loved working off all the alcoholic calories on the dance floor!
We go out a lot less now but we still try and get out separately (him with the guys and me with my girls to get our groove on) about once a month!

I think people go to the bar to meet other single people. Once you are engaged, typically you have more engaged or married friends. Now no one needs to go out to meet people in the bar.
Why go out and pay $4-5 per drink when you can party with your taken friends in the safety of someone else’s house and pay like $8-10 for a six-pack.
Seriously. I have never liked the bar and I feel a lot better about it now that I am engaged and I have a lot of married friends.
Don’t think you are weird. You’re just not trying to meet strangers.

I’m 21 and I have to say I’m kind of over it too. I did a lot of partying and late nights with my friends early in my college days. now i’m more worried about finding a job next year and keeping my grades up for grad school, and of course losing some weight for the wedding–all of those things combined means no real late nights for me! And I’m lucky–my Fiance is into brewing his own beer and tasting specialty beers, he doesn’t really drink to get drunk.
