Do you have a regular date with your friends?

I missed dating with my friends. Since we graduated in college we seldom see each other. Some of them are working outside of the country while others left here are busy with their jobs. We only see each other during special occasions like the last was when my baby turns 2 years old. We only communicate through phone and facebook. I missed them so much. How about you guys? Do you have regular meetings with your friends?

My friends and I try to make dates but most of the times it doesn't work out. We all live in the same town and still its difficult to get together. Life just gets in the way. Good friends play such an important role in our lives its a pity, not always due to anyones fault, that that part of our life gets neglected.

Well am still in college and going on dates with my friends regularly. Well I know that the same thing will happen when I graduate from my college, but i really hope we will atleast be able to meet sometime. A weekly gathering won't be a bad idea. Hope you get to relive your college days soon.

No. Because I don't have friends. I do miss my high school friends and the way we bond with each other. I miss the happy and sad memories with them.

I considered my office mates as my friends too.Sometimes we decide to hang out & chill after work.About my college friends most of them are preoccupied with their jobs & families so I only get in touch with them through facebook & skype.

I think the last time me and my friends had a get together was 3 years ago. Different work schedules and putting in greater distances between us proved to be quite challenging in getting back to our usual twice a month meet-up. We are all so busy with whatever's going on with our lives and we have yet to have a common day off for us to see each other again. Hopefully, we might have a lot of free time this Christmas.

We are the same. After my gratuaation from college, I almost can't see my friends because we work in different places. I met them several years ago, it's 10 years after my graduation. We had a good time together. Five years passed after that, still I have no chance to meet them. Everyone is busy working, taking care of children. Even if we are not busy, we just want to relax. Well, is it common? I don't know.

we also have the same issue. Because of our busy lives, we seldom see each other. We just set some available time to meet and hang out a bit... But we almost do not see each other for almost a year... I miss my highschool friends more because I don't get to see them after how many years.. It's a very long time ago since I graduated high school and we moved to a different place. I miss them so much

Sometimes I do. It seems that we get together for awhile and then something comes up or changes in our lives and it is only special occasions.

Have few friend that's occasionally meet few times a year. Its hard to meet every month because few of them work in different town. So we usually try to meet each others in national holiday. I also had few friend who had a baby and life in others town its quite rare I can meet them because they life in other town and family matters made them super busy.

I miss my friends but as years go by they all go the separate ways and changed their ways, missed all the good times and still talk on facebook also. as years passed they all have thier own familys to deal with. Still remember in memories go along way.

It was so happen that one of my good friends married my cousin so of course i still talk to her on a regular basics :)

No. It's one of the hardest thing to do. Most of my friends are busy with their own lives. I really wanted to have a regular date with. This month, we'll be planning to have a mini-gathering. How I wish that this time no more cancellations.

No, sad to say, we have no time and no chance. I have friends at the office but we also don't go out that much, always busy with our own families. Like you, my friends in college are mostly working or living outside the country already. Those left here have their work and families to attend to also. Aside from that, I'm now living in my husband's hometown while some of my old friends were an hour ride away from where I am now. =(

I really wish I would have the chance of meeting them. We have not been able to meet up since I left my old neighborhood to study my bachelor. We only occasionally message on Facebook. Through all these years they may have forgotten our friendship but I will still think of them as my best friends. Now all my concentration I put on my girlfriend.
