I used to live the partying single life in NYC but since being married I notice I dont like to go to bars as much with friends, I feel very uncomfortable if a guy talks to me and I dont feel like hanging out with my friends as often as I used, which used to be 3 to 4 times a week, hubby and I were long distance hence all the social time. I am just as content staying home watching TV with my husband.
I also found since being married some of my friends have dropped me, I used to have brunches and drinks with a wide circle of friends but now since being married its almost as if they dropped off the face of the earth despite being guests at my wedding or repeated invites, is it me? or is it just the quick changing social life of NYC

I don’t know if living in NYC has anything to do with it, I think that’s pretty normal. IMO the major downside to living in this city is that the bars stay open all night. So my friends and OOT guests want to stay out until 5-6am all the time. It’s exhausting! I never really liked doing that, but definitely don’t now that I’m older, married and trying to save for my first home.
I actually see more of my friends now, we’re more on a regular schedule of going to dinner and book club. And now that the wedding planning is over I have OOT friends stay with us more often. Hopefully your friends aren’t ditching you just because you’re married now though, I would think maybe they are just not going out as much.

thanks for the feedback, it’s not a huge majority I say maybe 2 or 3, while others have moved out of the country (thats NYC for you, quickly changing) no, one friend I had great times with I know she goes to brunch because see it on her facebook page, I’m thinking eh? another friend I had great times with doesnt even respond to any invites anymore, eh?
aw well life changes

We’re getting married next month, i find myself not hanging out with friends as much but mostly because i’m trying to save money. $100 spent in one night on dinner and drinks can go towards my flowers or spending money on the honeymoon etc. i think (hope) after the wedding things will go back to normal and i’ll go out again, or entertain at home more. entertaining at home cost a lot too so i don’t do it as much any more, bottles of wine, water, juice snacks & finger food add up!
