Its just a matter of making time for them without bring the boyfriend along. You may not be able to go back to the way things were but as long as you see each other weekly then your still in each others lives. I see this as a practical problem with a practical solution.

I have the exact opposite problem! my best friend spends every second of the day with her boyfriend, and even if me and my other friend are around them both, we're pretty much invisible. Me and my other friend both have boyfriends as well, but they are outside of school and we still make time for each other and her. Shes fine when shes on her own, but its rare that shes without him, and its got to the point where its pretty awkward to be around them because they always have their hands all over each other and talk among themselves sharing private jokes that no one can join in with.

I would say make sure that you have time to yourself with the girls, to do your own thing and talk about stuff, because its not the same if you bring your boyfriend along, even if you mean for it to be he will distract you. Having learnt from a past relationship, i now keep my friends and my boyfriend pretty much separate (they dont really know each other anyway), but if you dont want to do that, just make sure you have alone time with both, and not more one than the other if you know what I mean.

good luck!

petina1 agony auntIts all in the natural process of life and love. Your girlfriends one day will also find a boyfriend and they will be in the same situation. You can always think if youve not seen your girlfriends for awhile just mention to your boyfriend you are going to have a catch up night with the girls. There comes a time when relationships start to develop that you will see your friends less and less. Friendship is a two way thing so keep in touch via email, or text just to let them know even tho' you arent physically there sometimes you are still thinking of them. hope this helps.
