@MeganTacky2247: ummm I’m 25 and my Fiance is 28 and we are the worst homebodies I have ever come across. We like to stay home, and it is like pulling teeth to get me to go anywhere anymore unless I have to. I just want to be HOME. It’s ok, really. And if we lived closer, we could sit around in our hoodies together, HAHA.

I think it’s just part of getting older/nesting. Working all week and then trying to stay rested/take care of a house or apartment = when do we ever get to just sit down? Don’t feel bad. It’s normal. There isn’t anything wrong with you!

Lol, I thought I was alone! I like seeing my friends and enjoy it when I do…..but I just hate doing it!

I’m currently trying to figure out how to put off seeing a friend this Sunday because I want to go straight home after being with family all weekend. Sigh. I’m such a bad friend.

@hisgoosiegirl: nope, I’d be the same way. I am spending Thurs – Sat with my family and Sunday I want to be home. I would secretly be dissapointed if a friend wanted to see me, LOL.

@soyjoy222: I feel soooooooooo guilty though, I need to see her, she’s going to be a momma soon and then I’ll wish I’d spent more time with her when she had more time! I was hoping she could meet for lunch on Friday, but Sunday is the only day that works. Bleh. I’d have to drive 30-40 minutes to see her, hang out with her, drive back to get Darling Husband, and then drive 2 hours home. I just hate that. When all I’ll really want to do is sleep, since we’ll just have to go to 8am church with DH’s family that day. Argh. Nothing I hate more than having to get up early when it’s my day off.

I’d really like to see if I could put it off till next weekend, but then I have to drive even further, bleh!

@hisgoosiegirl: ugh I understand that guilt. You know you will dread it as you drive there and you will have fun when you are there, and then Monday you’ll be irritated that you didnt have ANY time to yourself that weekend! (or at least this is how I am!)

 

@MeganTacky2247: I know what you mean! My single friends are like, oooo I got this bag and this phone and I’m like…we are saving for kitchen counters! YAY! It’s just, not the same.

I get like this sometimes where I feel overwhelmed with things and just want to chill – I know I can always decline an invite out once or twice, but to me the possibility of my friends stopping asking me to go anywhere cause I’m a bump on a log is way more aversive than not going out for at least a couple of hours! I don’t rage til 2 am or anything but I’ve been known to get my grumpy butt in gear, then when I get out there I’m having a great time and don’t sacrifice any friendship contentment 🙂

I’m 26 and feel the same way you do.  I would rather just be home most times.  Fiance is the opposite, so we end up going out for a bit and then coming home somewhat early.  If Fiance had it is way, we would be out past midnight bar hopping.  Ick.

@soyjoy222: that is exactly how I feel, lol!

The really bad thing is Darling Husband is the same way. We’ll probably die old and alone in our apartment someday and it’ll take 3 weeks for anyone to notice!

 

Ok, that’s sad, hopefully not! Damn future kids better be calling their parents more often than that!

I’ve always been a homebody.

Except for Fiance, I would be perfectly happy seeing my friends only once a week. Fiance likes to go out more often.

I want to stay in tomorrow night for Thanksgiving but Fiance wants to drive 2 hours away to our boss’s party for his new opening business just so we don’t have to cook lol. I told him I’ll go if he wants to but I’d probably feel out of place. None of the American people I work with will be there, only my Chinese Boss, and his new Chinese employees and friends – Fiance speaks Chinese, I don’t. So in addition to having to go out of town to a party, I’d be going to a party where I don’t know or can’t talk to anyone.

And they like to get drunk and I don’t so there’s that, too
