How often do you go out? Do you have friends? How important is that to you and your partner?

I haven't A partner and haven't had a boyfriend for years (I don't count them either)

I socialise on dates. With family. Friends. Neighbours. Myself (one of my favourite social activities is meeeeee grin)

I used to go out every weekend, dressed up and on the lash.
I cut myself off from those friends as I realised it was so Empty and revolved only around drinking and finding a bloke.

Now I love my sad social life haha, I go out out (town/bar/club) about once a year if invited and to friends houses, for dinner, museums/galleries, parks, the beach my house, all that stuff.

I do on dates.

I also am guilty of just saying I don't feel well on a Friday night after work and putting my PJ's on and a film and wine and crisps then going to bed at 9pm!

Been in a relationship 2 1/2 years. Both have grown up children, so easier than most will have it. We go out as a couple & least once a week & unless there's a special occasion, go out with our own friends on a Friday.
Really important to us, we actively encourage each other to see our own friends, yet appreciate that couples that play together, stay together, so make sure, we go the theatre, eat out, cinema or something like that as a couple, once a week

We go out as a couple most weeks, with couple friends every couple of months. DH has cycling friends which he sees weekly. I have a few close friends who I see, one a couple of times a week for coffee the others not do often.

Never girls night out drinking just not my thing.
