A friend and I were texting and at she had been relaxing at home with her FI and she mentioned that we always seem busy. Which is funny because I have always thought the same for her.
Now I am curious to what “normal” is! So , I thought I would start a poll.
How many days a week (on an average week) are you and your SO are out of the house doing things (including weekends)
This includes movies, having dinner at a friends place, concert…etc…etc..
Bonus points for a comment
Interested to see the results!

It totally depends on a number of things (including the weather!). We can get pretty lazy on weekends, but we’ll usually do someone on one of the days, plus a couple nights during the week. We often go out with friends for dinner or drinks, some weeks more than others, but it can get pretty expensive after a while and let’s face it, a night in with each other watching some TV and eating a homecooked meal is a nice way to spend an evening 🙂

My SO is a total homebody, but I like to be busy 🙂 So he usually goes out 1, maybe 2 nights a week. Usually one of those is with me and the other is with a friend or family member. I tend to go out 4-5 nights a week with friends.

We try to do SOMETHING every day. I can’t stand just sitting around in the house. So my ‘something’ can vary from bringing the dogs to the dog park to going to the movies to walking around the mall to going on a weekend trip.

It seems like we’re out and about all the time (I put 4) but at heart I’m a huge homebody. Part of us going out so much is that I’m resisting the urge to live in sweatpants all the time!

We have been going on walks every day, but don’t have time to do much more because FH works such long hours during the week. We usually go out shopping or to a restaurant each weekend day.

It varies. He usually goes out one night a week to help his friend w. his business, and out for wings maybe once a month or so. I’ll see my friends once a month or so on the weekends (if that) but I’ll see them more often for lunch during the week. I’ll see my sister usually once a week after work then on Sundays. On Saturdays my guy and I usually do our errands, as well as once a week.
Lol so what does this add up to? We’re ‘busy’ a few nights a week I guess. We’re both huge homebodies. We both enjoy quiet evenings at home and get up early for work so we’re so tired after work and just want to relax!

DH is a homebody and I’m the total opposite. We tend to go out together 2-3 times a week, but I will go out without DH for dinner/drinks with friends 1-2 times a week.

We’re both homebodies but with work we are usually our of the house once or twice a week doing for work-related events. Usually we try to go out once a week for quality “us” time but last night we just ordered Chinese food in and watched a movie and that was really nice too.
