Default Do you hang out with your training partners?

As the title says do you hang out with your training partners outside the gym or do anything with them besides the gym?

I had a training partner that I met through work. We lifted together, ate Post workout meals together, went drinking on the weekend together and would meet up to eat on saturday's when we weren't even lifting.
At the time I was single and he was split from his wife, so it just worked out well. We trained together consistently for over a year.
Now that I mention it, i really miss that guy, he was a good dude.
Years ago I lifted with a buddy for a while that was a friend of mine before we even started lifting. Obviously we would hang out away from the gym. He didn't last to long though, maybe only a few months.

I had the same thing.

There were a few guys when I went to the public gym, we would spot each other then go out to eat. Sort of faded away now.

My girl always wants to come to the gym with me when she has the chance.
Also she likes to squat heavy, like everyone should :P so i guess it's a good arrangement.

I've got some friends to come and train with me from time to time. But in the end they just give up and quit.

I find it very difficult to find dedicated people. Dont you?

Other then the gym I never see the guys I train with. As a matter of fact we don't really associate outside the gym. We'll say hey if we see each other somewhere but other then that no.

One guy I used to lift with me and him would do stuff togeather on the weekends. We'd get our wives togeather and all go out to eat and do other things. His wife kinda made him quit lifting

I hang out with one of my lifting partners at school a lot to eat and talk school stuff and whatnot because we happen to have similar career trajectories. I have drank with him a few times, but I have other guys I hang out with more though.

I see that happen way too often. I don't understand the need to change people honestly. I would never dream to come between my girl's hobbies/friends etc..
