It’s Not You, It’s Me…Actually It’s The Partying

iStock_coachellaThere comes a point in every woman’s life when she has to ask herself, “Have I outgrown my friends?”  Sadly if you’re asking the question in the first place, the answer is most likely yes.  When you’re invited to a girls night out at a bar or a house party and all you can think of is the insufferable hangover that will surely follow, you’re in a different place than your partying pals and it’s time to say ciao to them and the clubs.

So what’s a gal supposed to do that wants to tweet instead of twerk?

1)   Get a dog- Not only are you able to nurture them and move from your Rihanna like ways towards responsibility, but a pup allows you meet other responsible dog owners while you’re walking your pooch or at the dog park.  Dogs are a great ice breaker for making new friends or for getting dates.

2)   Try something new- Always wanted to take a cooking class?  Learn how to do that choreography from a Britney Spears video circa 2000?  Now that you won’t be partying or hungover, you can finally get around to starting to check off some of those things on your bucket list.

3)   Kill it at work- Once you stop partying you will have a new found sense of clarity that will allow to you keep up with your intense focus and crush your competition at the office

Now the only question is how do you break up with your friends?  Honesty is the best policy on this one.  People grow and move on at different paces and it’s nobody’s fault.  Basically give them the whole “It’s not you, it’s me,” speech.  And if they don’t understand they aren’t your real friends anyway.  Sorry for not partying.  Well, only if partying doesn’t include glass of wine or two during a bubble bath.
