    Home : )

    I prefer to be home with my kids and my dog. I like to relax and enjoy a good movie or show on tv. I'd rather cook. Yummy dinner than go out to a restaurant. I don't like making small talk with strangers. Insignificant communication bores me. My husband is the opposite of me. He...

    Is It Bad?

    I am a homebody, a hermit, and I'm usually okay with that. Sure I go out for school during the week, but I could spend my entire weekend inside watching tv. Sometimes friends invite me to go out with them, whether to parties or bars, but I never want to go! I always find myself...

    Love My Cozy Nest

    I am a Scorpio and we simply must nest.  In fact, we take great pride in creating quite luxuriously cozy dens that we pamper with love and sprinkle with all sorts of magic dust.  I am, unequivocally, a homebody.  I love to clean and organize, decorate and create a...

    What Is The Right Choice?

    I have been living with my girlfriend and her 2 kids for 11 years now, since her kids were babies. Through bad choices on my part, an injury, and most likely some deep seated emotional issues I have gotten myself to the point where I am unable to work, have no income, no car, and...

    I just like to be comfortable - in comfortable clothes, around people I'm comfortable with. I'm sick of putting on fronts. I would stay in pajamas all day if work permitted. I did take slippers to work once to hang out in until it was time to go home. I like cuddling up and...

    And I'm Lazy to Boot!

     I love my house, and I love being mellow! If I do go out, it's usually no more than a few hours, and then I get kind of drained and want to come home :D

    Definitely a Hermit

    And I love every second of it. It used to be a lot worse, and being alone and in isolation for long periods of time just IS NOT good for the human brain. As much as I love myself as my best friend, humans need other people to be content. Social withdrawal leads to...

    I literally would not leave my house

    if it weren't for school, one time we had two days off of school for snow, and I got on the bus after the break and realized that i hadn't even looked out the window one time. Who needs the outernet when you have a perfectly good life on the internet?

    Hmmm, well I am engaged to the woman I love, but she's a bit of a homebody too, that, plus the fact that I have no real friends at the moment. Most of the time I prefer to just stay at home and watch a little tv or screw around on the computer a bit. I know I need to get out more...

    I always have been. I never even liked going out to dinner for my birthday--I'd much rather get takeout or eat a home-cooked meal. Besides, where else but in my room is it acceptable to walk around with no pants? Who needs pants, anyway? :)

    Religious Butterflies And The Solitary.....

    It's Where I'm Most Comfortable.

    i never had a lot of friends, so being at home was safe for me. i didn't have to worry about being judged or feeling uncomfortable. i could be myself. i could relax. i could feel a little bit of happiness. there's no other place i'd rather be.
