Question: How Do You Maintain Your Relationships with Your Girlfriends

I want to have regular girls night/day with my friends; but it seems virtually impossible to do so . We are all so busy and most of us are married with children at home, work (inside and outside) the home. We are overbooked, overwhelmed, overworked and overdue for fun and downtime. But how? I am asking for your suggestions. Tell me how you manage to do life with your friends?

I think I am going to start planning events and invite my friends and hopefully we can begin to come together regularly (nothing elaborate to start) but I am determined to get this going!

How do you maintain your relationships? What are some fun things you like to do with your girlfriends? How often do you get together? What about your friends that live out of state?

My dear friend LaShawn of over 38 years

    It’s hard to maintain. I think you should try to make plans and stick to it.I have the same problem me and my girlfriends said we would meet once a month and we did for a while then life just happened. Now it’s hardly ever meeting. You get busy with family and life and it’s put on the back burner and it’s never done. I think it is a good idea to make plans and stick with it. We as women need that every once in a while.

    Remember back in the day when we actually talked on the phone instead of texting? I have one very close friend who also has young children. If we aren’t able to get together, we will schedule a nap time phone call and talk for two hours straight. Although it isn’t the same as face to face, it can be a sure way to connect. I’m also thinking of hosting a real Tea Party… fancy hats, dresses, teas, flowers, tasty treats.. never done that before, but maybe someday!

      Hi Stacie, that’s a great idea to at least call one another to stay connected and to keep the relationship going. I love the tea party idea. My girlfriend the one in the picture she has tea parties often even a favorite things party I flew out to Atlanta a few years ago for her favorite things party it was a blast.
