So, now that I'm a married woman of 10 weeks and wedding-related stuff is starting to taper off (although I still have to do the thank you cards), I've found that I've "lost" friends. Is anyone else in this situation?
I used to live in Oakland and had around 3-4 single friends who I can count on to do last min things with. I'd send a text msg to meet up for drinks/dinner/something and at least 1 was free to do something. Now that I moved on the other side of the bay (after the wedding) and it's 35 miles from where my hanging out buddies are (45 - 90 mins away, depending on traffic) , I feel kinda friendless. I mean, I still have my big group of friends so whenever we throw a party or organize some sort of event (bbq, potluck dinners, concerts, play, etc) we always have a good group but it's always 3-4 weeks in advance. Nothing last minute.
I do have 2 good friends who live 15 mins away from us, but they both have kids so it's not like they can just meet up with me for drinks or coffee or whatever.
I've even posted on the SF Bay Area group looking for hanging out buddies but so far no takers.
So, for you marrieds, what did you do to expand your social circle & look for other people to hang out with?
