Lately I’ve been having issues. I am young, married, and do not have children. For some reason this seems to be a lonely place to be. Ryan and I have alot of friends, mostly married, mostly with children. We see our friends on a fairly regular basis in the comings and goings of everyday campus life. However, actually spending time with these friends is next to impossible. If you invite them to do something, they can’t because of the kids, and if they are making plans to do something, it’s usually with other couples who have kids. So, therefore Ryan and I are stuck with nothing to do. I love these friends, but I don’t think they understand what they are doing. Leaving Ryan and I out of their lives, simply because we do not have children.
On the other hand, our single friends, who when making plans with their other single friends do not invite their married friends along…these friends will come over when invited, but you have to be able to find them to invite them anywhere, they are usually already out with other single people. Again we love these friends, but it’s hard to spend any time with them.
So, Ryan and I make our own plans and go about on our own life, without any real life friends. When we are around our apartment or do get to talk to people we are referred to as “anti-social” but it’s hard to be social when noone ever invites you anywhere. Come on people. This all just really sucks for us. And I want you for once to know what it feels like.
