    I’d say at least once a week. Sometimes its dinner and drinks or shopping or even just going to the gym together. The majority of my friends live within a 10 minute walk or just a subway ride away so we try to get together once during the week and usually at least once over the weekend.

    I don’t think I could handle life without my friends LOL! We just did gingerbread house making night on Monday and it was really fun. We make a point to go for drinks, or do  cookie making nights or something like that at least every few weeks. Of coures it always includes heavy amounts of wine lol

    Well, I moved away from all my close girlfriends before the wedding, so I’m not really sure how to answer your poll. I’ve lived across country for a year, and we’ve all arranged to be in the same town about 6 times, so I’d say that’s a pretty fair amount (we all live in different states, now). I don’t really think getting married would change my frequency of outings as much as a change in living situations has.

    It’s harder because I have a two year old, and all if us are busy, but my close friends and I schedule dinner, happy hour, movies, birthdays, etc. as often as we can.

    I wish I could say more than a handful of times a year but unfortunately my husband and I live in my hometown right now and most of my friends are married and living elsewhere. I have a few friends that are single that still live in this general area, but they are ridiculously busy with grad school and they live about 30 – 45 minutes away so it’s a bit hard to plan something when they are so busy and we can’t just “hang out.” My husband and I will be relocating in a few years (timeline not set in stone yet) and the hope is that we will have children by that point and I’m hoping to make some great friends, and I think having children will also boost that a little. I know I will always be friends with my longtime girlfriends, the girls who were my bridesmaids, but when they live out of state and some out of the country it is very difficult to maintain the same kind of friendship we would have if we were living close by.

    Not much. I only have one close girlfriend around here, and she works full time and has a kid, and we’re both broke, so we never go out. It’s just hard working full time and trying to save for a wedding/house/pay bills/etc.

    You should put the option ‘not often enough, but I wish more frequently’ because that’s what I would pick

    I voted other: I recently moved to Oklahoma for husband and I don’t have any girlfriends.

    I voted “other” because some of my girlfriends and I have “girl’s nights” pretty regularly (anything from going out dancing to hanging out at one of our places drinking and talking).  It kind of varies, though, depending on how busy we are.  Sometimes we’ll get together once or twice a month … Sometimes we’ll get together once a week or more.  I’d say on average we get together at least three to four times each month.

    Some of my other close friends I don’t see very regularly at all, but that’s only because they live far away.  

    I feel like I do things with friends (without my fiance, though sometimes he comes out if others are bringing their significant others) just as much now (if not more!) as I did when I was in high school and college.  I’m sure we’ll go out less frequently once I start having kids, but I think that’s normal.  Right now I’m just enjoying myself!
