I really didn’t party in my 20’s.  I hit the party phase my early 30’s for few years. Now days as a 40 year old woman we especially on NYE stay home. Sorry I rather get my drink on at home if going to party than deal with the idiots that chose to drink and drive or the idiots are just plain drunk off their asses.

I didn’t party much at all.  I went out a few times between 19-21, mostly because I was dragged along by other people at work, or checking out a club for a friend’s birthday.  I’m really uncomfortable with crowds in general – I really need to be in a specific mood to enjoy going out drinking and dancing.

I much prefer to stay in, have friends over and go over to their place to play board games and drink.  That’s what we did last night – had one of our “couple friends” over and played Settlers of Catan and Dominion.

We go through stages, but I am 30 and it hasnt stopped!

However that being said, I stopped having parties at my house long ago. I prefer to go, have fun, and then go home when I am ready. And you don’t have to clean up after anyone except yourself!

I just found out I’m pregnant so I will not be partying for the next 9 months or so 😉

@Daizy914:  I stopped when I met DH,wthrough we had a few wild nights out! Most of my friends were over it at that point but I had a couple of friends who love to party. They moved away so it all calmed down at that point. We’re talking about a night out soon and I’m worried!! I’m not able any more!!!

@Daizy914:  I would say after college I just lost interest. Working a full time job and partying just don’t mix. At this point (29) I cherish my sleep more than any other activity.

In college I for rip-roaring drunk several times a week. Now, at 26, maybe once every other month? If that? I just hate the hangovers, the cost, and the worry (“omg, did I do anything stupid?”) that goes along with it, but that doesn’t mean I hate it so much I never do it, ha!

Almost immediately after I graduated college I lost interest in partying. Even my senior year at 21-22 I was growing tired of it and much preferred to have low-key nights in with my roommates and boyfriend. I go out to bars with friends a few times a year now and enjoy it, but I generally avoid clubs because that scene just makes me miserable.

partying died down for me after I graduated college  and moved in with FI, but it hasn’t stopped.  I love a good party, but I also love quiet nights in.  I’d say I party maybe once a month now, as opposed to almost every weekend in undergrad.

@Daizy914:  I stopped actual parting at 20.  I quit drinking (for the most part, very rare social drinker now) a little after my 21st birthday.  I started partying and drinking at 15, so i guess I started early in some opinions lol. I hung out with a lot of older (18+) people and didn’t look my age at all. My husband calmed me down a little when we started dating at 16… but I still did it on my own time.

Personally, I know how I get when I’m buzzed/drunk, and it’d def get me in trouble. So therefore, there’s a two drink limit for me set by myself lol. =)

@Daizy914:  *sigh* I never have. I go to parties maybe like 2-3 times a year – and I am in college!! I’ve always been more of a homebody. My fiance and I enjoy going out with each other more. I like going out to the bars with my friends occassionally, but for the most part we keep to ourselves. I’ve hosted 1 party last year, and while it was fun, I won’t do it again – I just don’t have the personality for it I don’t think LOL

@Daizy914:  I’m 27. I don’t go clubbing as much as I used to, though I still go occasionally. I mainly just go to the pub though, and tend to prefer quieter pubs.

When it comes to house parties though I tend to stay late; as do my parents (in their 60s) and their friends. If we have parties at ours (I live with them) the last people usually don’t leave until 5/6am, and we’re cool with that; we hate it if people leave before 2am lol.

@Daizy914:  The weaning off partying came to me in two phases. I was extremely poor growing up so my college years weren’t the “fun” college years with partying and spring break that everyone seems to have (I went to private school that was “safety school” for rich kids who could not get into the Ivy Leagues so picture that culture). If I wasn’t in class/studying, I was working multiple jobs. I had a full time internship in the summers during college so no summer fun either.

My point is: I didn’t really get a chance to party until my mid-20s and late-20s. I had “real jobs” then with generous vaca time so I was finally able to enjoy that scene albeit later than everyone. When I was 27-28 though, I noticed that I was one of the “older” people partying  at bars and felt awkward. I didn’t fully wean myself off until 30 though. It was confirmed for me that I was over it when DH and I walked into NYE party at our favorite restaurant and just felt old… And bored. It doesn’t hold the same allure anymore.
