Yes, but flipped.

As in, since I’ve been married, only my coupled friends have asked me to do stuff. I’m never asked by my single friends. I always have to reach out to them.

Totally agree with Laylabelle.  I think single friends assume you are busy, since you are a couple.  I will say, as a once single gal, I’ve always appreciated the way certain married friends kept in touch (and would do things with me WITHOUT their hubby or asking if he could come along).

I haven’t done that at all.  I’ve been married 6 months and haven’t once hung out with a married couple.  I still hang out with all my single friends.  One of my biggest pet peeves when my friends started getting married years ago was they all seemed to ditch their single friends, so I’ve made it a strong point to not become that person.

Nope!

I hang out with the same people I always have single or not!

Absolutely not. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a woman gets into a serious relationship and she drops her friends. I’m not married, but I’ve been in this relationship for 8 years (and engaged for 6 mo) and I still hang out with the same people I would be hanging out with if I was single. As I get older more of my friends are in serious relationships too, but I love my single friends and have so much fun with them. It helps that all of my friends, single and partnered, love my fiance. We actually shared a hotel room with one of my single friends at the last wedding we attended.

i’ve found that both me and my fiance have a tendency to do that, but here’s why: for me, my single friends LOVE to go out late and i dont. like, they don’t want to go to happy hour, they want to go to a bar at 9pm on a tuesday night. i don’t want to do that (i work early, plus, they are looking to meet guys), so i often end up left out unless *i* plan something. they turn me down for happy hour and dinner a lot because they want to go home and nap after work and THEN go out. on the weekends, they do the same thing and to be honest, i don’t want to stay out until 2am anymore.

our couples friends tend to have a more similar lifestyle to us right now, so that’s why we tend to hang out with them more.
