At different times in our lives we have more or less time for our friends. We tend to get caught up in our own lives, and it takes work to maintain a friendship. Do you and your friends meet once a week? Once a month? How do you keep in touch with your friends?

I try really hard to keep my friends in my life. They are some of the best people I know, have always been there for me and are SO worth it. Unfortunately I am just really, really bad about making plans and returning phone calls, so for me I have to really work on it.
I am the type of person who makes a few very tight friends. 2 of them live far away so I try my best to keep in touch through phone calls and emails. Usually once a week. I don’t get to see them as often as I would like… Maybe once every 2 months. I miss them. 🙁 I also have 2 close friends where I am now and I usually try to meet up with them twice a month — although it’s been like 2 months since I’ve seen 1 of them, due to conflicting schedules. Lame! Even though I don’t get out to see my friends as often as I would like I do try my best to check in on them with emails/phone calls.
I’m still working on finding that balance between work, Fiance, friends, family and me time. I don’t always get it right, but I do my best!

This is a really hard thing for me as well. We are always so busy, its really hard to make time for my girlfriends. We try to get together at least once a month but honestly it hasn’t happened in quite a few months. 🙁
It seems like since being married and buying a house, some friends (if I can call them that) just keep breaking promises of coming over and hanging out. I prefer to cook dinner and hang out here, since we are of the few to have our own place that isn’t an apartment, but most people want to go to the bar and that’s just not my scene anymore

I also have a close group of friends. Lately I’ve been feeling like I am the one putting in all the effort to get us together. I am in constant contact with one of them thru social media and text/phone calls. It seems like 3/4 of us are able to get togtherbut the 4th one is never available. I’m feeling frustrated because she won’t reach out unless we reach out to her and then she gets mad when we hang out and says she feels left out. I feel that it takes two to make a relationship work, and I’m tired of always making the first move.
