It’s okay to go out and have fun with the girls sometimes even when you are married.  As long as you aren’t out and all over guys, I don’t see why you can’t do that occasionally even after you are married.

I never really had a huge single life so I didn’t have anything to miss.

It doesn’t sound like you miss being single, it sounds like you miss hanging out with your friends? I don’t think marriage is a dead-end for possibilities though…

Nope, not even a bit! Seriously though, I try to have good night out with my girls at least once a month, and it is all the more enjoyable because I know I’m going home to my sweetie.

Yeah, it sounds like your not missing being “single” per say, more like you miss just hanging out with your girls and just going on a whim.

One of my guy friends said he likes being single because there is nobody he has to “check in” with, he goes and comes as he pleases…its sounds like this is what your missing??

What my husband & I do to have a good balance, is go out on a whim. Unless we have plans, if one of my girlfriends calls me up in the middle of the day for a girls day out, I just tell my hubs “I’m going, see ya later” and he does the same. It makes us feel like we are still independent and not dependent on each other.

Nope but a girls night out can be fun once in a while. Trust me if you were to do that everynight it will surely lose its glamour.

Sometimes I miss going home to an empty house! (Though I remember quite clearly that going home to an emtpy house EVERY day is no fun.) Sometimes I just wish that when I got home, I didn’t have to do anything I didn’t want to. If I wanted to just eat peanut butter crackers for dinner in my bathrobe, I could. If I wanted to wear ugly fuzzy jammies, I could (I still can but I’ll have to deal with the jokes Smile). If I wanted to stop for happy hour on my way home or at my mom’s to hang out or something, I could do so without calling anyone. Being responsible for no one and to no one but myself is what I miss. I don’t miss it enough to where I’d rather have that than what I have, just some nights I get nostalgic for the old days =P

As the resident bachelorette here at WB, I say cherish your fabulous relationship – AND get out with the girls on a regular basis. 

A monthly girl’s night out is a great way to have your own time/space, have something exciting to look forward to that isn’t connected to your Fiance / spouse, and get out and try new things and stay connected to your girlfriends – I know a lot of my friends kind of disappear from my life once they marry  Frown

You can have your (wedding) cake and eat it, too!

Nope. I love having my man. I adore being able to share my life with him. I love that we are able to build a life and a family together. I love that we can succeed together. I don’t ever want to be single again.

yeeeesssss! here! *raises hand!

I had the BEST time being single. I did go out last month with one of my married (well all of my friends are married except for me) friend, and talked to some funny singletons (that’s what I call them). It was fun to hold up my left hand and say “sorry boys! engaged!” lol.  We got home at 4AM though-I didn’t miss that part..or the fact that my hangover reiterated over and over and over that I am not 25 years old. It took me like 4 days to recover. Fiance said it served me right. HAHA!

Honestly-being single I wanted to be married, being married sometimes I miss the good ol days. I think it just comes with each territory. I love my Fiance and wouldn’t trade us for anything but sometimes real life is totally boring and I need a good night out on the town.

I don’t miss it. I look back and am thankful for the relationship I have now. It was fun being able to flirt with whomever, but I am glad that I am not searching anymore and have found someone that I want to spend the rest of my life with and who knows me so well (and still wants to marry me- ha!). There might be times I think I miss it, but then I remember what I just said and I don’t miss it. I do miss going out with friends though… and that just doesn’t happen anymore because we are all so busy… Frown)

I definitely do not miss the single life. But I always make it a point to get together with my girls even if life is crazy. One can’t spend every waking second with her man. You need to have girlfriends as well as the Boyfriend or Best Friend
