    We’re not really social butterflies, but we’ve got friends whom we love, and we’re careful who we allow into our inner circle, if you will. It takes us a while to really call someone our friend. We’re theater people, so we’ve got that crew, then there are the college friends, the other veteran friends, and the family friends. All told, there’s probably a solid 20-30 people that we hang out with on a regular basis.

    For us, it’s really important that we have friends. I’ve been friends with some of my best girls since high school, and there was no reason for marriage to change that. Same with DH and his best pals.

    Unfortunately for DH, all his oldest friends live “across the pond” from Canada, so they keep in touch online. But he has made new friends (besides my friends) since moving here and I’m really glad about that.

    Our friends and we are all pretty busy people, so we try our best to make time to all hang out in a big group together once a week.

    Can’t say that I do.  By choice really, but I’m not a loner or anti-social.  I just seem to attract those who want to butt into my life and want to ruin it.  J and I hate drama and never cared for it.  So, lately we’ve been keeping to ourselves.  I wish I could find some girls that I actually liked and could hang out with once in awhile.  Unfortunately, it’s so rare to.

    We do things occassionally without the other ie I have a womens conference tonight & the Mens Conference is in a few weeks…

    Otherwise we’re usually together & I know I prefer him to be around… b/c when he’s not I’m usually like Man Justin woulda thought that was so funny or something..

    We’re even having our bachelor/ette party together… But we do still have the Bridal Party

    Like a PP put it we consider one another to be our best friends as well! We were never that couple that “excluded our friends since we were dating.” If anything, we were all together when we met, but it just seems that as we got older, our lives all have changed.

    Most friends moved for COLLEGE/WORK/FAMILY, and now are making families and homes for themselves. I no longer live where I grew up, well I grew up everywhere. So I in another aspect, am used to being the “new kid” since we moved so much while growing up.

    Sometimes I wish I had more friends, but I know I still have time to make some great friends as I continue the journey of life! =)

    @runnerbeez: I feel the exact same way.  🙁

    I have one really good friend, but I moved to J’s area and so now we’re 1-1/2 hours apart.  I’m working, she’s working, and she has a 1-1/2 year old.  So, it’s hard to find time to even text.  It sucks.  I miss having good friends.  Most of them were guys, but once you get engaged, they seem to disappear unless they have absolutely no feelings for you.

    @runnerbeez: and 

    @DesireeAnne:

    To be honest, I typically prefer the company of men for this reason.

    We do have friends, mostly mutual.  I would say we hang out with about 12 people on a regular basis, or what we consider a regular basis.  We have extended friends that we see not that often.  We used to have a large group of friends we say all the time, but a lot have settled down and moved away…

    I have 3 really close girlfriends and a few not-so-close friends but that’s about it. FI on the other hand has about 12 best friends, and at least 30 more regular friends. 

    We have one friend couple, but I really don’t like the girlfriend. We need more couple friends!

    @MissHelen: I know exactly what you mean.  I miss my guy friends, but the majority of them liked me apparently.  I have no idea.  They all disappeared as soon as a ring was put on my finger.  Plus J was a little insecure with the thought of my having a lot of guy friends.
