I know that doesn’t sound like much of a confession, and that’s how it’s supposed to be, but just stay with me here and hopefully you will understand.
My husband is my best friend. I know that’s true for a lot of people, but for me it means he is the person I want to hang out with most. We both work full time schedules and my husband works until as late as 9pm on some days. So we don’t get to see each other as much as we would like. So when we are off work, we want to spend every minute we can together.
Most people we know aren’t like this. We have a lot of friends who go out with their friends and spend time apart from their spouses. But that just doesn’t work for us. I don’t like going out with other people when I know I could be hanging out with my husband. (Now don’t get me wrong, I like the occasional girls night out, but for me that’s dinner with the girls and then home by 10pm.)
Hanging out with my husband is the most fun I ever have. We have so much fun and generally spend the whole time laughing. I have never had as much fun out with friends than I do when I am out with my husband.
And because of my desire to hang out so much with my husband, I’ve become quite the hermit. I don’t make plans with friends anymore. And unless it’s a group thing where we can go out with another couple, I honestly don’t really want to go out. Maybe one day we will get tired of one another (unlikely) and decide to hang out with other people again. But for now, I’m happy I get to spend all my free time with my best friend!
