do you and your dh/so have your own friends? do you have mutual friends?
do you hang out with your dh/so's friends? does he/she hang out with yours?
do you have more male or female friends? what about your dh/so?
are you okay with your dh/so hanging out with the opposite sex?

for me we have our own friends and we have mutual friends.....
like all his work friends are his friends i only hang out with them if we do something together...or they come over or something...but he'll go out and have lunch with t hem or go out with them after work sometimes have a couple of beers etc.....i myself dont have many friends....but my friends are usually my friends....which he will hang out with if they come over etc....
and our mutual friends we usually hang out with together...
i have kinda the same amount of female/male friends and so does he..well actually he probably has more male friends ....im okay to a point with him hanging out with females....im getting better at this.....but you have to know our history to know why i have issues...it used to never bother me....and im getting back to the point where it doesn't bother me so much....

do you and your dh/so have your own friends? do you have mutual friends? I dont have any of my own friends. DH has tons and I would hang out with them too,but they are DH friends.
do you hang out with your dh/so's friends? does he/she hang out with yours?See above!
do you have more male or female friends? what about your dh/so? I dont have any. DH only has male friends. He is friendly with some of his work collegues that are female, but wouldnt count them as friends.
are you okay with your dh/so hanging out with the opposite sex?Depends. I'm cool with him having a coffee with women at work at lunchtime. I am not cool with him going to a bar with a woman. depends on the context! I wish i could say it doesnt bother me at all, but i am a jealous woman!

I do go to a parent and baby group, and i really enjoy the ladies there, but they never seem to have time or really want to meet up outside the group. they all have older children and their own friends that they struggle to keep in touch with and arent really looking for new friends.

I did meet a lady from a weightloss group i joined on facebook and we went shopping last week which was a lot of fun, but again, she has 4 children and her own friends and doesnt really have as much time as i do to meet up. maybe over time we will get closer, cos she text me afterwards to say she really enjoyed our morning.

I miss the friends i had before i was a mom, but they are all starting careers and tbh once i found out i was pregnant they dropped me. They obv werent that good friends to begin with.

do you and your dh/so have your own friends? do you have mutual friends? We have our own friends and mutual friends.

do you hang out with your dh/so's friends? does he/she hang out with yours? Generally we only hang out with each other's friends if their spouse is involved or if they are friends who live far away and we don't get to see them often.

do you have more male or female friends? what about your dh/so? Most of my friends from high school and college are males and most of my friends from working are females. Almost all of his friends are males.

are you okay with your dh/so hanging out with the opposite sex? Yes. If I expect him to be okay with me hanging out with my male friends, I should be okay if he hangs out with him hanging out with his female friends.

I don't have any friends that live around here. Joe's non-work friends have moved in the last few years so he only has work buddies now. He has a friend that I became really good friends with when he lived here, we still keep in touch. More so than he and Joe do I think lol

I talk to a few of his friends online (we all play WoW). He doesn't talk to any of mine.

I have more female friends now.

Honestly, I wouldn't like it if it were a regular thing but I wouldn't get bent out of shape if it were a group thing or something. One on one though would probably bother me.

Mostly we have seperate friends but some of them we've both become buddies with.

I have mainly girl friends and he has guy ones LOL. Just how it worked out.

We dont hang out much. His best friend stays with us right now(WHOLE other story) so they hang daily. My friends live close by but we dont get to hang too often cuz of life and crap that gets in our way but we talk regularly.

I dont care if he has girl friends and vice versa cuz we are both smart enough to know not to allow friendships ruin our family(like if the friend got flirty or whatever).

After the last three days i dont feel like i have any friends honestly. I waited around ALL day from morning until i went to bed for a "friend" to come over and i texted with her all day with her saying she was heading over soon. If i mean that little to someone where they will do that to me 3 DAYS in a row then i dont really think thats a good friend. Last night i was totally blow off and ignored, i tried to text to see where she was and no response..still no response the next day. I give up!

I wish i had some real true friends IRL. I feel like my only "friends" are you girls online.

As for Morgan he only has one friend that i do not like AT ALL..that is because he is a loser that spouts out kids, lives at home with his mom for free and cant bother to pay/see his kids then has to balls to turn around and tell us that the "baby mamas" are the bad ones not him. He reminds me of my brother so i think that is why i dont like him much. Why Morgan likes him i have no idea honestly, they are nothing alike. The only time they hang out is if they are going to go hunting though which Mo loves so that is probably why he hangs out with him.

do you and your dh/so have your own friends? do you have mutual friends? A mix of both.
do you hang out with your dh/so's friends? does he/she hang out with yours? Sometimes his good friend from work will come over for dinner; my best friend comes to visit every now & then as well (she lives 4-5 hours away) and she & my DH get along and like to hang out together.
do you have more male or female friends? what about your dh/so? More female for me, male for him
are you okay with your dh/so hanging out with the opposite sex? If it's in a group setting, sure.
