    I think everyone’s free to live their own social lives as they see fit, but that folks on either side of the debate who make it a point to bring up their social lives and compare them to other folks are the immature ones. 

    Honestly I don’t care if someone is married, single, dating, 21, 31, 51, stay in and watch movies every night or go out on the town every night. it’s your life, not mine, and if whatever you do works for you, go for it.  But if someone starts bragging about how much they can drink, how many nights they go out, or how grown-up they are for not having set foot in a nightclub in years, then I think they’re  just being a brat.

    As soon as someone says “I’m so mature because….”  or “I’m not immature just because I….” then they become an instant teenager in my eyes.

    @TwoCityBride:  The only thing I find immature is getting sloppy drunk frequently ( everyone one has one to many once and a while).  The sounds of your post you are a responsible drinker so that I would not class as immature.

    @TwoCityBride:  Um, it’s actually code for ‘dude, I cannot handle the two-day hangovers.  I would rather just stay home and watch tv’.  It will happen to you, I promise.

    @WillyNilly:  I completely know what you are talking about. We definately pay the price if we indulge too much, and it definately takes longer to bounce back. (I am pregnant so I don’t have to worry about this now!)

    We go out occasionally but not often (maybe once or twice a month), but it’s never really been my thing even in college.

    I think there’s a huge difference between wearing a pretty dress, having a cocktail, dancing a little and getting home at midnight and wearing miniskirts that show your ass, getting drop down drunk, rubbing against every person in a smoke clouded room and not getting home till 4. The first I would say is great occasionally and if you can handle it more often why not, the second I think is always stupid.

    As with most things in life it’s not what you do it’s how you do it.

    I’ve never met a mature, settled down person who goes out 4 times a week. If you were my friend I woudn’t say anything to you because you are free to do what you want, but I’d side eye your protest.

    I am 50+ and I STILL like to party. I have simply learned that there is a time and place for everything. After all my obligations are met for the day, if I so desire, I do!

    It is based on your definition of “party”. It is also how you handle going out. I did some pretty stupid things back in the day. This would include drugs, passing out, fighting people, making out with random individuals and having to deal with law enforcement. Now that I am pregnant and married, I have cleaned up quite a bit. Yes, I still go out and enjoy adult things (not drinking right now obviously), but I have toned it way down and will never go back to being how I used to be. To me, yes that is being grown up and ready to handle having a family. I am actually quite proud of the fact that I was able to stop all those things entirely.

    I also have to admit that while I do not regret my past, I do not miss it either…friends will bring it up jokingly and I just shrug it off. They might miss that part of me, but they will get over it…

    I would also like to add that when someone refuses to drink because they have to work in the morning, I find it to be very mature and responsible.

    It depends what you mean by “going out”…If “going out” means parties and drinking then we never do that. However, we do like to go out and do things all the time. We go out to eat, amusement parks, movies, resorts, museums, zoos, jazz clubs/bars (more of a poetry, light music, and dinner type club not the untz untz type scene). We have plenty of festivals that we like to attend. We have fun responsibly as neither of us are drinkers so no getting drunk or anything like that. We do at least one-two of those things that I listed a week depending on the time of year.

    On the flipside, just because we don’t like clubs and alcohol, doesn’t ake us lame. My husband and I go out to dinner quite often with friends, but none of us like clubs. We’d prefer to spend our money on international travel, go hiking, go shopping, etc.

    Everyone has their own interests. Most of us that work long weeks aren’t up for long nights out dancing – just a fact of being in a high level job.
