First time posting as a wife it’s been over 2 years since I’ve been on (old email deactivated) can’t remember old log in, anywho! Like the subject says my husband & I are homebodies on the weekends! We are in our 20s & I feel like we should be more active on the “night life scene” at this age, we are really fun people but kinda don’t mind being home however I feel like this is the time we should be going out on the weekends before kids,We both agree the idea of going out to bars/lounges every weekend is nice but acting on it is a whole other story! So I would just like some feedback on this from couples either in the same position or couples who do have active night lives on the weekends with their spouse.

I feel the same! We used to go out every Saturday night and spent a lot more time with friends and family, in general, on the weekends. Now, we have gotten into the habit of spending our Saturdays on the couch watching t.v., maybe going out for a walk or something at night. Sundays are pretty lazy, too, and spent doing chores.
I can’t complain, though. I used to think I’d go stir-crazy at home all the time, but I really prefer it now to going out. It’s nice to have time together after a long work week. (I just hope we don’t gain 50 lbs.!)

My husband and I are also homebodies. I think we will become more social once we buy a house, because we’d feel more comfortable having people visit. I am certainly not into the bar/club scene and feel weird going to random people’s homes for house parties sometimes. So I think being able to host movie/beerpong/game nights on occasion in our own enviorment would be a good solution for us.

How about inviting people over to your place? Assign wine, salad, app etc to people so all the work is not on your shoulders.
If you like to be in bed a little early or time to decompress then invite them over for a Sunday football game or an afternoon basketball game.
I like to be social, but I dont care much for the bar scene, unless its a nice wine bar. So maybe make plans ahead of time with some friends to catch up so that you are expected to be there.
Or may a reservation at a nice restaurant once a month. Again the reservation will require an expectation that you go there and then it will be easier because you planned for it.
Or maybe, you like being home at night, so plan to do something during the day. Darling Husband and I like going to a first showing on a Sunday of a movie so its a quiet theater. It gets us out of the house, but back in time to do whatever we want for the rest of the day.

I feel the same way. Only we have never been the type to get dressed up and go out, hang out at bars, go dancing, etc. The only time I go dancing is when friends are in town which is maybe once a year. Or at other people’s weddings, LOL.
Usually I don’t mind being home, but sometimes I wonder if I’ll regret never trying the party scene for a bit when I was still young enough to pull off a micro mini, LOL

@6598731ssfse3: I feel the same! Our current apartment is pretty meh… we don’t like having people over as it’s small and dark, and just… embarrassing in comparison to our families/friends houses. Once we buy a house, I can definitely see us entertaining a lot more. I am A-OK with being a homebody with my love for the time being 🙂

Thanks ladies! Glad I’m not alone haha, I feel the same about the house situation (saving up!) our apartment is awesome great for entertaining however guest parking is a nightmare! And the closest street parking is about 1 to 2 big blocks away *sigh* I do love being home as @Ahigg396 says its nice after a long work week! But we may have to try the night scene at least once a month (easier said then done) 🙂

We are also homebodies. I am 22 and FH is 23. When I was a teenager, I was out almost every night doing something but as I got older, I started staying in more. Most of my friends were older than me, so they were graduating and moving away, some got married, some had babies. I didn’t have anyone to spend time with anymore. FH and I were long distanct for part of our relationship, so we never really anything either. Now that we’re living together, we can’t really afford to go out any, so we mostly stay at home at watch Netflix. It used to bother me because I also though that since we were young, we should be out doing more, but now it doesn’t really bother me.

So glad my Fiance and I are not alone here. We are 28 and 27 live in Vegas (born and raised) so OVEr the going out scene and have been since before we got together 5 years ago really. We would much rather a game night at a friends house or here at our house, love entertaining guests here. Movies, bowling. We play on an indoor soccer team and a bowling league and we get made fun of from our friends and get called old for that LOL. But ya that’s rpetty much it. I cook dinner most nights so we don’t eat out a lot to save for the wedding. We are very happy being at home together:)

Yup, we’re homebodies as well. We are both 21 and are already basically over the bar scene. We go out sometimes (rarely) with friends, but prefer to stay at home the majority of the time. Even after I turned 19 (drinking age here), I didn’t love the bar scene. It’s difficult sometimes because our friends give us a rough time about it, but some of our pother couple friends are starting to reach the same position as us so it’s nice to have them to hang out with sometimes too 🙂

I don’t know why but I giggled while reading this.. I guess because it reminded me of my SO and I.
We are in our 20’s.. soon to be engaged and seriously, we used to PARTY A LOT! We’re in our last year of college so I guess all the “partying” has been sucked out of us from the first two years of college lol we do try to go out whenever we can but seriously, i’d rather be at home cuddling/relaxing… since we are usually both very busy during the week with school.
So yeah.. I think it’s okay… I mean if anything, when you have kids, you can always hire a babysitter so you both can go out and such lol

My husband and I are exsctly the same!! We always go out when something is organised, but you are much more likely to find us cuddled up on the setee at weekends. And….I don’t feel bad for it either! Like I say, we do see friends, but I do love my Sat nights with my husband 🙂

My Fiance and I are homebodies, but we’re a bit older (I’m almost 33, he’s 37). In my twenties I used to go out all the time (in LA), but around 28 it just got to be too much for me. Having to get dressed up, make-up, dealing with drunk people, etc. just wasn’t worth it to me anymore.

My Fiance and I are totally homebodies and we are both on the lower end of the 20’s scale. We love curling up on the couch before bed with a movie. Most days we act more like seniors than 20-somethings! It’s not that we aren’t social (we love spending time with friends) but we just enjoy our laid back/relaxing time a lot.

We are homebodies in the winter. In the summer we are out every night even just for walks or to sit down at the beach but winter not so much. Which is fine cuz we can save some money over the winter especially after all the expenses of Christmas
