It’s super important for FH and I to be each other’s best friends, in my eyes, and we are.
Outside of us though, we each have very small groups of very close friends. I have a few more opposite sex friends than he does but I’m not as close as I used to be with them, mostly because they have girlfriends they’re closer to now, and I have FH who I’m closer to now… and nobody wants to step on anyone’s toes, you know? But we’re still friends and everything, I still feel comfortable talking about all kinds of stuff with them and hanging out alone with them at times.
Not that I really see my friends much anymore since I moved abroad. Mostly we talk online. I’d like to make more local friends, but it’s hard! I feel like adults just don’t friend-bond the same way we did in school/college/etc. Sometimes there are work friends, but I’ve never had work friends I’ve hung out with outside of work except for once or twice.
And I have such a good time by myself that if I can’t find someone I *really* enjoy hanging out with, it’s kind of like… eh, may as well just stay in.

@Holly77: I prefer this life too. I trust my fiance. I don’t really have the need for anyone else.

@Holly77: Oh, just realized you were in Australia. That’s perfect! It’d be like:
“Hey wanna meet up for coffee? Oh wait…Eh, works for me,” lol.

I’m a big believer in the idea that ‘no one person can be your everything’. I have about 8 really great friends & together with my husband they fulfill different needs that I have in life. Some I can tell everything to, some make me laugh- they all make me feel special and loved. It may change when we have children, but I could not live happily without my friends.
