Don’t feel like a loser; that is pretty much the extent of my evenings, too! I wish it were different, but people I consider friends moved away. We are close with his family, but that’s it. But that’s what we’re here for!

Honestly I kind of feel like a loser too.  I haven’t made any friends since I moved here back in August and this is the only socialization I get other than at classes.

I’ve felt the same way recently.  I’ve never been big into drinking, and go out maybe once every 3 months to a bar.  He doesn’t really drink a lot either and really doesn’t go out too much either.  My SO and I aren’t really religious, so a church group wouldn’t help.  It just is really hard to meet people when you aren’t into partying.  I don’t really have any advice except that I know how you feel.  I keep hoping as people get a little older they will give up on partying.  :-/

what, you mean we all don’t have TONS of time to be social?! What?!

the most social i ever got was college, probably b/c i was in a sorority. It was good for me, now I enjoy the quiet. At the time, I enjoyed the hustle and bustle.

Yeah, sometimes I do. I’m really busy with school and work most of the time, and my friends here are having some very personal weird problems… so I like coming to weddingbee as a good social refuge πŸ™‚

I totally feel that way lol.. I have a huge group of virtual girlfriends. I work full time, own my own business with the SO, and im in school 14 hours so I dont have much time to go out and make friends. I have lived in Atlanta most of my life but have slowly pulled myself away from the crowds I used to hang with. very presumptuous people who party every weekend and drink all the time, and were my “friends” when it was convenient for them…

I’m blessed with great friends, but Fiance and I have been trying so hard to save money that weekend after weekend I turn down the invites to go out.  Fiance and I usually sit at home, watch a movie, or he’ll watch sports/play games while I go on here.  When I come home from work I come on here and think about wedding stuff.  I’m starting to fear what happens after the wedding!! I’ll still be on here, but I’ll miss all the planning fun. 

It’s so nice to be able to talk to people who are wedding-minded!  Like I said in another post, I do fear overwhelming people IRL with my wedding talk.

Im with you all too! I don’t post too much because I am shy (working on that) but I feel like anything I sasy is respected and taken without judgment. Even though I am waiting, the wedding ideas have been so helpful and I am getting great inspiration while I wait a few more months!  Going to school and working has made it tough for me to keep strong relationship with the friends I do have, beyond the basic “hey , how are you”.

Yes, I have no job, and I don’t know anyone of my age near my house (we moved in July), and I have no car…   

Boyfriend or Best Friend has a job/car/things you would think to lead to a social life, but he is shy, and he says just about everyone at his job is married with children, and not really into “hanging out”.
