psychoanalyze me please.... i wont go into a hell of a lot of detail, because i dont believe it to be 100% pertinent, but here goes... I have never been an overly popular person, even through HS and College, but I had my friends from High School and college, and we kept semi-close because we all live relatively close to each other (under 30 miles) Anyhow, once I met my now wife, she was somewhat of the same way, and to this day, we have friends that pretty much originate from family members, and long standing friends. We seem to go in phases, but lately we have been hanging out with our friends from my wife's family. My friends seem to have fallen by the way-side, because they are mostly 24-30 years old, ALL of them either live at home, or not far from it, all single, and all wrapped up in the dating, drinking, club scene. I guess from that, I can deduce that we dont share a TON in common anymore, but the invitations to do anything or even hang out have been slowly happening less frequently. I honestly have not talked to any of them in probably a month. My wife has talked to a few from time to time, but no plans ever made, nothing ever really gets discussed. Recently friends went to Vegas for fun, we were never even invited, i didnt hear about it til today. Oh well, it seems that I am losing my friends I guess... But then back to my wife's family/friends (originates from her brother and his wife, 2 or 3 of their friends, a longtime friend of my wife and his sister) We hang out with them almost on a weekly basis, even though they are over 80 miles away. The problem with me, i really dont know. Recently I have been extremely critical and pissy of our friends, their shortcomings and things they do that upset or piss me off. Why? I dont know, weve been friends all for almost 5 years, and this literally has been the first time its happened in that long, and its been for the last month. Just little things that annoy me or piss me off about everyone (for the most part) I tend to not want to hang out with them, not really want to do anything with them, or when we do, and i try and suck it up, i get really pissy really easy with some of them. Not to the point of saying something to their face, but i will just bitch about it to my wife. She says ive become more pissy over all our friends, and i completely agree, I just dont know why. I am happy with my job, happy with my marriage, life is good, my friends are just upsetting me in various ways, from ignoring me/us, to just things ones that we do hang out with say and do. Any ideas? think its just a phase?
