Wouldn't good friends understand that you have a new man in your life? When you date someone, they occupy a special place. They take up your time because you're getting to know someone new who MAY be the person you spend the rest of your life with. You shouldn't be expected to give up your friends/family but everyone needs to understand that when you date someone... you simply have to give them some priority, and there will be adjustments.

I wonder, in about an average week, how much time do you typically spend with your friends and family? And how much time do you spend wiht the new man?

Well I think everybody just has to learn to share you.
