    For me, that is a party.

    Have a few friends over for the night and watch movies, while lily eats all the green skittles and everyone gets mad.

    Yay For Home!!!

    I am such a homebody. My life seems to take me away quite a bit......I work 50-60 hours a week and have my boys who keep me running and also am committed to being a school board director in our local school district as well as the Vo-tech school in our area. So when I am finally...

    I'm really not a party person.

    I'd rather stay home and do my music, and spoil my dog.

    Even Better

    I don't like to socialize with people too often or for too long so parties really tire me out. Maybe that's the whole point but I don't get tired from having fun, I get tired from having to talk to drunk or/and hyper people and pretend like I'm having fun. I'd much rather stay...

    Who Said That The Only Way To Have Fun Is To Go Out And Party?

    In high school, while most of everyone was out partying, drinking, getting high and being sexually promiscuous, I was at home, in my room reading, drawing, writing, on the computer or listening to music. People would always ask, "Why don't you ever go out? What do you do for...

    With a Few Friends

    I prefer more intimate settings. From my empathic abilities and what I do for my work, when I want to be with people I want to be with people I'm close to and where I can fully appreciate the moment.

    My Sanctuary

    I never felt the need to go out and get drunk. It doesn't seem like any kind of fun to me. If I want to have fun there are so many other things worth doing. It seems too many people are addicted to something like drinking as a form of having fun. I feel society has put too...

    Yes, I do like to visit with what little

    friends I have(hubby's), for a few hours. I was never social growing up. Not even to go to other kids birthday parties, cause I was bored and didn't like some games and activities. I wish I were more outgoing. It's lonely and boring at times. With my thoughts and only tv shows...

    I Had A Great Run!

    I can honestly say that I did enough partying in my days to last me through three consecutive lifetimes. Now I like to kick back with family or friends and maybe play some cards or a game or whatever, but my going out to party days are now firmly behind me.

    My Wonderful Hideaway!

    I guess I am what you guys call a "home buddy."  My home is my escape...the place where I come to run away from life, a place that gives me internal peace and a respite from the world outside.  It is in my home where I find comfort surrounded by the things and...

    Not a Party-goer

    I don't mind going to parties really--it's just loud and obnoxious to me though.  People stir up crap and the drunker they get, the more crap that comes out of their mouths.  I don't like to drink either, and even though it's New Year's Eve, I don't care to drink.

    At home, much better

    than going out. I may be surrounded with so many people but no matter what I always feel alone and uneasy and feel tired easily. Plus you can wear anything comfy clothes at home, hate goin out coz I need to pick clothes to wear.

    I love staying at home.

    People see it as boring and I have no life. But I guess it comes with me being an introvert. I love just being at home in peace,free to do what i want without the need to put up with whatever my friends want. I have friends. I just see them at work. lol other than that,they dont...

    I've never been someone who's extroverted

    enough to enjoy the company of others for a prolonged period of time, plus the noise level annoys the life out of me. I enjoy a little get-together with friends so long as it doesn't get too rowdy, but I must prefer the enjoyment of one friend's company and a good conversation...

    I am generally non-social

    and without friends, and have been comfortable and happy being at home and being on the computer, watching TV, and reading. My sister wants me to do things with people, and I could sometimes.  I would have to become friends with people I know.

    Small Circle

    I hate crowded and noisy place. So, I don't go to big parties where people barely know each other. I can handle small groups like family get- together or tete' a tete' with close friends and work-related parties.

    T.O.T.A.L.Y 9/10 times I would prefer to stay

    home, have friends over and just enjoy their company around a cozy fire, steak sizzling and wine flowing. I'm waaaay past clubbing every weekend! Hangovers seem to linger these days (ponders about the aging process)

    I Have Always Been This Way

    keeping yourself healthy in mind and body makes you enjoy life to the fullest. i think a healthy mind needs positive thoughts and beliefs. and a healthy body needs workouts and physical activities. both are necessary to enjoy life to the fullest

    I've only ever been to two parties

    and while I enjoyed them I would have enjoyed a good book and snuggling in my blankets more. I would also probably enjoy a rousing 1 on 1 debate or historical discussion to interaction with a group of humans. So really parties were doomed to be a failure for me from the start...
