    We spend most nights together after work but most weeks I’ll get together with some friends once a week and he will also, or a couple of times. I love my time with him but need some girl time too. Love to shop alone too, I’ll see him in bed! Lol.

    Other than work, we pretty much spend all of our time together. My Fiancée is female, so I never really feel the need for “girl time as such”. I see two of my friends around once a month without her and we see our mutual friends together, we also spend time with family together. She goes to the gym without me two or three times a week while I walk the dog and cook and I think this works well. She’s my best friend and we always have things to do or places to go at weekends and evenings so I never get bored with her.

    We are essentially two peas in a pod and have been since the very beginning. I’ll also echo what others have said and believe it’s perfectly healthy if you two prefer to be together all the time and are still spending time with friends. I feel incredibly lucky to have found someone who wants to spend everyday with me and so should you! Some couples are mismatched in the amount of alone time they need and that can cause conflict.

    We spend Tuesday nights apart and every other Saturday night apart while he visits his parents. I wasn’t too thrilled about it at first but now that we’ve been living together for a couple months I like it.  Still get the bed to my self a couple nights and the sat/sun he spends up at his parents I get to focus on my kids and we’re only apart the one night. It’s been a great balance and also lets is each spend time doing independent things and be happy to come back together.  We’ve also started doing other things on our weekend together.  Activities apart during he day. He naps, I watch tv. Etc.

    Oh man that is rough. Girls like that are THE WORST. 

    I had my cousin refuse to go on a girls trip to Peru that would have been 100% paid for by her parents because she couldn’t invite her boyfriend to join us. I told her to call her boyfriend and talk to him about it and see if he was ok with her going on this trip without him (bc they were long distance and any vacation time she used would reduce the time she would get to see him) She REFUSED to even tell him about the trip unless she could invite him. INSANE. but my cousin is super insane. A month later I asked her if she was going to Thanksgiving with her boyfriend and she replied, oh we aren’t in a place yet where we spend holiays together… UM WHAT?!! Yeah… some girls are idiots. 

    Sorry this happened to you. Sounds like you were nicer about it than i would be. I would have told her it was girls night no boyfriends allowed lol. Guess you just have to not invite her to girls night if she can’t actually just come alone. Yikes!

    We work too much to spend every evening together… I work around 80 hours a week which means I’m usually gone 7am Monday to 7pm Wed and then a full workday Thursday and Friday (for example), plus I usually spend at least one evening a week going out or hanging out with my girlfriends. I guess it works out to spending two weeknights together, and then we’re usually pretty much inseparable on the weekend (apart from pesky errands like groceries). I would spent every second with him if I could, but coming home from work to see each other is always the highlight of our day! I get jealous of couples who spend more time together because I wish we had a slower paced lifestyle.
