    No, same old, same old.

    Yes, they are more distant.

    Yes, they are very excited about my new beginning.

    @Scintillante:  I had some relationships that got most distant during my relationship with my husband. I just tried extra hard to make time for them and include them in my life (though at a certain point you have to give up). I think even if they are happy for you it can be hard to feel like the third wheel. My husband and I have tried especially hard to cultivate relationships with couples that we both enjoy. It takes more work because there as many as 6 relationships to deal with instead of just 1, but it is really fun when you find new couples that are fun to spend time with 🙂

    We went from hanging out every weekend to once or twice a month. You just settle in and it’s a little different but since he’s my best friend, I don’t feel like I am missing out on anything.

    Depends on the girl. Most of my girl friends were super excited and wanted to be involved and know all the details.

    A couple of my other girlfriends, however, who have been in long-term relationships with their SOs and are yet to see a ring, definitely got more distant. I feel like jealousy definitely plays a factor there.

    Which really sucks, since I’m always SUPER careful not to bring up/talk about wedding stuff unless I’m actually answering a direct question about it- I know it drives me nuts when people do that about their babies/pets, so I definitely avoid doing it about my wedding.

    ETA: And it had nothing to do with making the other person feel like a third wheel. Fiance and I often spend time apart with our individual friends when one or the other of us is busy and can’t go out.
