@nerdwife12:  I own a house, have a relationship, am almost 7 months pregnant, work full time and have a dog. None of these things makes me too mature to meet up with my single friends for dinner. You are being very holier than thou and that (to answer the question in your other thread) is why you seem young. I know when I was 22 I  was super self-righteous and thought I had it all figured out. Thing is, now at just about 35, I realize I was just keeping myself from having fun. Friends are soooo important and offer something your husband can’t. Being mature does not mean not socializing.

while you may only want to spend time with your friends if your Fiance is invited they may feel differently. he is not their significant other, and they probably want to be able to talk about stuff without someones Fiance tagging along. I know I think it’s weird when one of my friends drags her SO to a girls night thing, and my Fiance could care less about going out with me to hang with a bunch of chicks. I understand wanting to spend time with your Fiance, I know we make a special effort to have a date night once a week, but I also make time to spend with my friends.

While the thought of a ‘girls night’ nauseates me, I do have a social life outside of my relationship with my Fiance and enjoy hanging out with various groups of friends.

 

Still, the thought of being around more than 3 girls at once and going out to a bar sounds like a terrible time and I didn’t even like doing that when I was single. I love being alone and if I have time without Fiance, I usually do things for myself, when hanging out with other people I’m happiest surrounded by single friends, couple friends, and Fiance.

I’ll often meet a friend for drinks after work, Fiance will join us when he’s done, and sometimes others will join as well. I don’t do the whole ‘let’s plan a girls night and not invite anyone who’s in a relationship or of the opposite sex’, I’ve never had friends like this.

@KC-2722:  agreed. i’m not big on the girls night out concept. why not a “we’re humans and need socializing so we are going out” theme and people just go hang out?
