I’m almost 25 now but I totally felt the same way by the time I graduated college.  I wasn’t much of a partier before either but now I’m even less so!  Just means you’re growing up =)

I’m 25 and I have definitly gotten out of the party stage and i can say i don’t miss it one bit! i would say from 18-22 i was out all the time but the past 2 1/2 to 3 years i have completely settled down.  i love my lazy nights at home – i almost cant believe i’ve become such a homebody compared to my past. Though i do still love a good saturday night out with other couples getting a little tipsy ๐Ÿ˜‰ doesnt happen too often..maybe once a month but honestly i wouldnt trade my lifestyle for the world.

*what really makes me feel old is a 10:30 bedtime – which it usually is during the week. haha! i mean im 25 not 50. If i am out during the week, which is really rare i find myself watching the clock figuring out how much sleep im going to get

I’m now 27, but I started to feel that way pretty much right after I turned 21 and it was all “allowed”. I still enjoyed going out the last year of college but I definitely slowed down on my drinking.

After I started working I’d enjoy going out once a week or so (at most) as long as I was home by 11 or so.

Now I’m right there with you, I’d much rather relax at home with some good wine (or good beer) and just chill. No super crowded bars or uncomfortable shoes.

I’m the exact same way!  I’m going to be 24 next month, and I’m just not into the club/bar scene anymore.  When I do go to bars, I just think about how I could have better food/drinks/music at home for cheaper, and I feel like I’m older than most of the people at the bar!  Darling Husband and I like going out to this one gourmet pub near our house that’s more of a 20s-30s, yuppie crowd, which I guess is what we now are.

I think you’re just maturing faster than many of your FB friends–you have a degree, a job, a fiance… Nothing wrong with being a grown up!

LOL im with you girl! I would rather be at home with my soon to be hubby then go to a club and be one of the oldest people there… At least that is what it feels like! I still go out to the bar sometimes with my man and close friends but not very often AT ALL, and i go out with my girlfriends for girl days but no more girls nights out… Not my thing anymore, dont like being hungover the next day so i dont drink much anymore either. My weekends usually consists of watching a movie with my Fiance and drinking a small glass of wine, and church sunday mornings ๐Ÿ™‚ im happy with that!!

Oh I just turned 24 ๐Ÿ™‚

i’m only 22, and I’m already over it. Even one drink sometimes makes me feel sick. ๐Ÿ˜›

I’m 22 and I love to party- occasionally. It’s really rare that I heard to a club, but when I do I do it right, haha. I generally prefer to lounge around at home with a bottle of wine.

I am the exact same way. I guess that’s why I got engaged at 22, married at 24, and ttc at 25.

Lol, I never really got into it. I’m actually going back to my parent’s this weekend to celebrate a friend’s 21st and all I feel is dread. I would rather stay here (DH doesn’t want to go so I’m solo), sit on the couch, have a couple rum and cokes and be silly with the Darling Husband. The thought of going out to a bar is just bleh to me.


Edit: I’m 23

I was always like that. LOL I am 25. In college I would go out, but not to clubs/bars. I didn’t drink and neither did my husband.
