Not very often either.

Never. My husband and I are pretty much inseparable and if he isn't invited, then I won't go. We're a less creepy version of Alex and Simon from Real Housewives of New York, without the money and the kids.

I don't drink and I rarely go out at night without my husband, unless I'm taking my kids to the store or the library.

I go to a craft fair and the Renn Faire with a close friend once or twice a year each, and once in a while I'll go shopping with a friend. But, I have no "girls' nights out" at all. I just don't feel the need.

Every now and then, maybe twice a year, I'll try to have a girl's night. We're usually attached at the hip, but we enjoy knowing that the other can go out and do things without us as well.

We tried to do it monthly but that never works out. More like 2-3 times a year. NOT enough for my sanity!

Never we moved to a new state a year ago. I still feel like I don't know anyone well enough. Plus my husband works atleast 50 hours a week. Then I go in and work when he is off. We don't have child care for our 2 year old.

I have one friend who wants to do ladies' night once or twice a year, maybe. I give in and it is more fun than I think it will be. But I don't really feel a need to get away from my male partner, I have the very most fun with him. We share most of our friends and most are male. I tend to be more comfortable with males due to interests.

You know, gender doesn't dictate interests. Whatever interests you have in common with your male friends aren't important to every guy just like they aren't unimportant to every woman.

For me the idea of a "ladies night" isn't relevant because my friends aren't all ladies. Leaving the men behind would mean leaving most of my friends behind as well.

I know that interests aren't really "male" and "female".

I should have just left that part out. It was unnecessary.

I preach the same thing to people--not all guys are the same and not all females are. Sometimes it really irritates me when people generalize.

Most of my guy friends don't get into stereotypically male things like, say, sports. Many women I have talked to aren't too into all the stuff we are--But of course, some are. And those are the ladies I'm closer to. Interests really aren't gender-specific, but some do seem more common in each gender due to upbringing, ect. Just an observation.

"Gender-specific interests" are usually just the result of people/parents playing into gender stereotypes. Of course if you buy your daughter a dollhouse and you buy your son a model race car they are going to develop different interests. I was annoyed by that from a very young age and always requested a "boy" happy meal when my mother took me to McDonald's because they came with toys that were actually fun to play with. "Girl" happy meals always came with miniature barbies.

So yeah, inevitably some if not most men and women will have interests that reflect their gender. Still, when I deal with women who have stereotypically feminine interests I don't attribute our incompatibility to their being women. I know there are plenty of women with interests similar to mine even if I don't encounter them as often.

Every few months, I'll hook up with some female friends (or my mom and sister) to get our nails done and see a chick flick in theatres... But that's about as close to a "girls' night" I get.

We love to get together with other couples. He never goes out with GUYS and I have NO INTEREST in "going out with the girls", beyond doing lunch with my co-workers who are all woman, by chance.
