I am in desperate need...

of a social life. It has gotten way too old sitting around the house all the time. All my friends are back in Baton Rouge though and sometimes that's just too far to drive on last minutes notice :( 

Re: I am in desperate need...

  • I'm right there with you, we've become the "old" couple. We end up watching movies every weekend through Netflix. I'm not really into the bar scene anymore and I guess I don't know what most 28 year olds do.

  • I agree. I really need to get out of the house. My husband is a bit of home-body and I'm not into bars much either. Occasionally yes but not as a regular hang out. However, that doesn't make it easy to meet people. I'd love to go out to eat with some other grown ups or to the movies. This city has too much to offer to spend every weekend at home.

  • We have friends that live on the westbank, but that's a good hour drive for us from the northshore. I was just telling my husband, we need more friends on the northshore! We are still young (at heart). No, my husband is young: 25 and I am 27. So we still like to drink and have a good time. A lot of people our age are kind of out of the partying stage....or they have kids! So I don't know. I kind of feel like we aren't going to make friends until we have kids :(

  • This may be weird...but maybe we could have a girl get-together at a public place. This way we could feel out our personalities and see if maybe us and our H's would be good fits??

    Not weird at all, it's actually done a lot on the other boards. They are called GTG or get togethers. This board had one or two before, when it was more active. Sounds like a good idea,

    Nope not weird at all! When I first moved down here I didn't know a soul outside of my husbands family. Went to the Baton Rouge board and after a couple months we all decided to have a gtg. Since then we do it all the time and I made all my friends that I have now from that board :)

    I think a gtg is a great idea!
