Being a homebody

I can entertain myself easily at home, thanks to the glories of the internet. Sometimes I feel a little guilty about how much I like staying in, even on clear sunny weekends. I like traveling but can wait long periods before the next trip. Do you consider yourself a homebody?

Yes. Fellow homebody here. I never was the type to go flitting about from one social function to the next. I'm perfectly content at home.

I went through a period where I wanted to go out nearly everyday. At some point, having to talk to people at work made me appreciate solitude more than ever.

I do okay with crowds, concerts, and parties, but I also want many hours of recharge time on my own sofa in between those things.

I'm extroverted and prefer to go out with friends. Well, except for when it's frigid outside and then I can't be bothered to budge from the blankets.

I wouldn't call myself adventurous because I don't mind being outdoors hiking, mountain climbing or socializing. On the other hand, staying at home with a book at hand excites me. There is a lot that one can do on the internet. So in a way, striking a balance becomes the preferred option.

There is nothing wrong with being a homebody. It's what a person, like me, does when they grow up from being a wallflower. Your DIY skills improve, if nothing else.

I consider myself a homebody. I would rather stay in than go out. It's weird, because the work I enjoy the most keeps me outside most of the time.

While I would like to be able to participate in more activities, I think what I really want is to have more of an option to participate in these things. Things like paintball, bowling, laser tag, whatever random stuff I feel into - But I don't actually want to go do them hardly ever, I just want to feel like I have the freedom and ability to. Which I usually do feel that freedom, and then I spend it at home instead because that's just what I prefer to do more often than not.

I have found that a lot of people prefer staying home as they get up in age. Some people have always been like that, while most seem to have to grow into that lifestyle.

I have been a homebody for the longest time, and I agree that some people grow into this. Every time I get out of this comfort zone, I have to find time to stay indoors, and recharge!

Yeah, and I find that I get anxiety if I'm "out there" for too long. This isn't a reflection on people in general, this is all me. It's a me thing.

Every time I am out there, I keep looking forward to getting home and enjoying some solitude. Is it about some people being introverted and extroverted at the same time?
