    We share the same group of friends, so we don’t go out separately too often, but it does happen.

    Also, he lives with some roommates about half-time that are his good friends, so he gets in all his guy time then, mostly.

    We are pretty much inseperable. I honestly can’t remember an occasion in the past year that I’ve gone to without him. I love it. He’s not only the love of my life but my best friend and I love that we share friends and always have an amazing time when we’re out together.

    we’re usually together. sometimes we have our own thing that we have to do, like i’m a girl scout leader so i’m always doing that myself. he’ll go out without me a lot because i get migraines so i have to stay home sick… but still usually he’d rather just stay home and take care of me.

    I go out to lunch and stuff like that without my Fiance, but we almost never go out out on our own. We have 2 kids so if we get a chance to go out we want to spend the time together!

    Since we live in the suburbs and don’t have many friends out here, we pretty much stick to ourselves.  He has the occasional poker night with some coworkers, so when he does, I happily head off to Philly to see some college friends!  

    But most of the time, we love spending time together since we have so many of the same interests…it would feel weird to do the things I love to do without him because he loves them as well!

    hmm, i guess we mostly go out together.

    He has way more friends than I do, so If I’m not with him, then i’m with my mom and sis or out with my 2 friends. Fiance would go out with his buds more frequently if we were back home and not in Pittsburgh where we literally only have a few friends between the 2 of us.

    imma dork i guess 😀

    My hubs and I are really home-bodies and we have been this way even before knowing each other. So usually when he is not working we are home together since it can be 5 days before I get to spend time with him since he works the second shift.

    The hubs is really not into the bars or going out as I just mentioned. If he goes “out” usually it is to his brother’s house in Jersey where him and his boys will stay over there for a few days and play poker and drink. It’s his get-a-way. I usually will use that time to spend time with my family, which I love to do.

    We don’t really have any friends where we are, so unless I take the car to visit a friend or two that’s still in college-town, we go places together.

    We go out separately about once a month or so.  We don’t really hang out with the same groups of people so we tend to separate to see our friends. It works well for us though because we live together and are together all the time so we like having time with our own friends once and awhile.

    Fiance goes out usually about 1xweek w/o me….sometimes more during football season  I’m usually invited but I mostly say no because I think its good to have “guy time” w/o my taggin along (although I get along wonderfully w/ his friends and they love when I go out) or I have to be up @ 5:30am for work the next day.  I usually only have “girl time” 1x month or 1x every 2 months.  I live 45 mins away and my friends are all super busy (kids, work) so its hard to plan.

    We have a date night 1-2xweek though (whether we are alone or w/ anothr couple)

    I think we have a good balance when it comes to this. I go out for girls night probably once or twice a month with my friends and he has guys night a few times a month with his friends. We also mix the two as everyone has a SO or is cool with hanging in our circle sans SO. So I think we go out more often together than separate, but only slightly more.

    We RARELY go out without the other. We have a 2-year-old though, so going out doesn’t happen too often period!

    I clicked “fairly often” (hm i guess I am the only one!) because we usually go out with our own friends. Honestly, I’d rather stay home by myself, watch tv, veg on the couch, etc, than go out with his friends and their SOs. It’s just…not fun for me. And I KNOW he doesn’t want to get dragged out to dinner with my girlfriends (who are mostly single). We do plenty together but we “go out” separately. Was this talking about date nights?…..cuz we do have lots of date nights. We just don’t go out together with other couples very often I guess.

    Then again, we spent 4 years LDR so I had to learn to become really independent of him and make my own fun, so I’m not used to him tagging along. And his friends are not my friends’ friends so it’s all pretty separate. In fact, I’m going out Saturday night and he’s not coming. I didn’t even invite him. It’s girls night! I do happy hours with my friends (without him) and go shopping with them (without him). I do plenty w/o my DH but he goes to movies with his friends (um, i didn’t want to see Wolf Man but he really did) and Rams games and all kinds of stuff.
