I used to have the equivalent of Carrie’s Sex and the City girlfriends, except there were three of us altogether and we didn’t try to have sex with every man we met. But we did go out to bars and clubs and restaurants and movies together. We spent the better part of the week in each other’s company. We had all gone to school together and we stayed friends after school and through our 20s.
We are still friends now, but we live in different parts of the country, which makes it difficult to continue our pattern of going out together! Although the times we do manage to get together we have a fantastic time. We always seem to pick up exactly where we left off.
I’ve made other friends, both single and married, who enjoy having “girl’s nights out”, but over the years they too have moved to different parts of the state or country.
I miss my girlfriends. The girls I know now are lovely, but not the sort who enjoy going out very much. And they rarely go out without their partners, which makes “girl’s nights out” kind of non existent.
I think I could be quite happily single if I had a bunch of girl friends that enjoyed going out to coffee, drinks, dinner, movies, dancing or whatever took our fancy at the time. It’s the socialising I miss. There’s just nothing quite like going out with the girls!
