On the Outs with Going Out

I hate going out. First of all, while I live in my fabulous city, I live 20 minutes from downtown so going out for me is no longer a walk down the street. Second of all, I'm not into being drunk or drunk people. Third of all, I'd prefer to save money to do something practical like buy plants.

Sometimes I feel like I SHOULD go out more because that is what single people do. Single people go out. Young people go out. So if I'm young and single I should be going out every night or at least once a week, right? If I don't I'm either boring or a premature-old-fart. 

But I am totally satisfied with spending my extra evening time at home with my dog watching a movie or TV or reading or blogging. In other words, I'd rather participate in this online community for free than go downtown to spend a bunch of money to be in the presence of idiots.

I don't know if this is merely a phase which will pass in time or if I'm just naturally a homebody. But it seems that I can't win. I am the least boring person I know but at the same time any single person who doesn't go out on a regular basis is judged as being boring by all the "fun loving" singles. 

So, if you're enjoying your Friday night at home (or any other day of the week for that matter), here is a quick list of some of my favorite recent posts by other bloggers which you may find entertaining:

And I just want to say that there is nothing wrong with going out! I think its a perfectly acceptable thing to do. I am just advocating for staying in being a perfectly acceptable and COOL way to spend my time. Even if I am young. Even if I am single.

I LOVE being at home! Sometimes I just walking around thinking, "I just want to be left alone!"

Thanks so much for the shoutout. I have a girl crush on Welsh Girl now!

Hi! Just found your blog!

I'm totally over going out on a Saturday night. Okay, correction--I'm totally over the singles scene on a Saturday night. I do still enjoy meeting up with a friend for coffee or a movie. But, otherwise, I'm perfectly content to stay home and work on my blog or other ventures. As you can probably tell, my life is full of pursuits that interest me, so why wouldn't I want to pursue them? It's those singles who have nothing else to pursue who can't imagine what we'd do with ourselves at home for the whole evening all alone! Hah! To me, that uninterrupted time is one of the greatest treats in the world!
