Ella:  You know, I love just hanging out with just the girls. Talking, chit-chatting, having some cocktails, going to the club...This is amazing.

Devan:  Cocktails! Oh my God, I forgot my ID. I can’t get into this club without my ID. I can’t order drinks without my ID. What am I gonna do?

Jason:  I’m so glad I found you. You left this at home.

Devan:  My ID! Thank you!

Marni:  Wow, what an incredible boyfriend.

Jason:  I was worried you wouldn’t be able to have a fun girls’ night out.

Devan:  Honey, you’re really sweaty. Did you run all the way here?

Jason:  Yeah, I thought it was important to get you your ID, you know?

Marni:  My God. Jason, that is so sweet of you.

Devan:  Thanks, sweetie.

Jason:  You’re welcome. Call me when you’re done, and I’ll come get you and when you get home we can have a snack and snuggle.

Devan:  Yeah! OK, I love you. Oh, honey? Can you fold my laundry tonight? I don’t want them to get wrinkly.

Jason:  You got it.

Devan:  Thank you! Love you!

Jason:  Love you more.

Devan:  Love you more!

Marni:  Wow…

Ella:  I can’t believe that! I mean, I could never get Jeff to get off of the couch and then hand me something, let alone run across the city and give me my ID.

Devan:  I know. He’s pretty perfect. I’m actually kind of hoping he’s going to ask me to marry him.

Marni:  Oh my gosh! Devan, that is huge! So have you talked about it?

Ella:  I mean, have you gone ring shopping or anything?

Devan:  Whoa, whoa, we’re not that far yet. I just…you know, I’m fantasizing right now.

Ella:  You gotta plant the seed. You’ve got to plant that seed.

Marni:  You should really get him thinking about it.

Devan:  Really?

Ella:  Yeah. Totally.

Devan:  I’ll start thinking about that, but for tonight, let’s just go have a fun girls’ night, OK?

Marni:  Yes. I mean, who knows how many more of these we’re going to have, right? You could be a married woman soon.

Devan:  OK, let’s go.

Ella:  OK.

Devan, Marni and Ella are all dressed up and ready to party. They’re excited that it will just be the three of them that night. They’re having a girls’ night out with no men around. But Devan forgot her ID! They won’t let her into the bar without it.

Just then, Devan’s boyfriend, Jason, runs up and gives her the ID. He is sweaty because he ran a long way to get it to her. He wanted to make sure she had a fun girls’ night out.

Devan’s friends are impressed. They think Jason is a good boyfriend. Ella says her boyfriend would never do something like that. Devan says she hopes Jason will ask her to marry him.

Ella says that Devan needs to plant the seed with Jason. She needs to hint that she wants to get married. But Devan doesn’t want to worry about that right now. She just wants to have a fun girls’ night out.
Have you (or your wife or girlfriend) ever been on a girls’ night out? Where do you like to go with your friends?

we wear scarf and mantou and that is the basic outfit..but when you are talking about veil.chador ,,its a specific outfit and no one has to wear that,..

but about pants and shirts,,i think that Iranian women’s cloth style is not less than shirts or pant ,nowadays.is’nt it?Iranian women have that much freedom to choose between veil or just mantou.but the outfit doe’nt have anything to do with not having girls night out!

the truth is that if you are muslim or not you live in Iran anyway you have to wear hijab though you would’nt call it freedom or whatever,thats all.

please dont LIE about Iran..every country has it’s own laws .so you have to obey Iran’s laws.and nobody here has to wear veil…and actually you dont wear it on so you must not talk about what is not true and is your wrong perspective.

I once crashed a girls’ night out. Of course, I, a man, didn’t mean to.  That was back then when my English was poor.  I guess I was among my female class mates one day when they were talking about planning a girls’ night out while I was never realizing what girls’ night out actually was. So, I showed up at the time and place they agreed earlier only to surprise them, which in turn surprised me realizing that I was not invited for the first time!  The girls were nice and let me spend the evening together. But that memory still makes me brush.

there’s no reason to have a look.. just a thing inside my mind..

Wherever you go in the world all the same common blood, common courtjudge who wants to come out at night for the girls always havepreconceived approach, but in my opinion, this is a very wrong approach,because a lot of fun every night of the girl with bad habits and thought thegirl is not to say things. I also have an adult daughter and I always have my permission to exit the night with her ​​colleagues inside me without any worries and prejudices.

07:33 PM Aug 24 2011 |




danger of the bad guys? haha bad girls can be even worse! ;) anyway, its true that when u r going out only with girls there are always some guys in clubs who are looking for flirt and its annoying (hey guys from Middle East studying in Europe I m talking also about u…)

thats why its better going out night in mix group its more convenient and safe with male friends

With my friends we go to park, play tennis, joking, laughing, sit on the grass. that’s really cool and became closer more and more.
