12 Signs You're the Homebody in Your Friend Group
Trying to decide if you're a true homebody or someone who just really loves a movie night can be confusing. And it's probably especially tricky after this past year if you've been working (and generally doing everything else) from home. Even if you're itching to get out and hang with friends and family in bars, restaurants, and public places again, a true homebody knows that coming home at the end of the night is still the best part. If you're continuously thinking you'd rather be curled up on the couch with your pet while binging Netflix, then yep, chances are you're a homebody. And there's nothing wrong with that! In fact, it's kind of the best. There are tons of perks, like lounging in your pajamas and being able to fully recharge, but that doesn't mean the FOMO doesn't still creep in sometimes. Keep reading for 12 things all true homebodies know to be true, before, you know, you get back to your peaceful space.
You Cherish Your Alone Time
You'll take any chance you can get to catch up on your shows while sipping on a glass of wine. Basically, "staying in" is your middle name and you wouldn't have it any other way. Your happiest place on earth is home!
You Love When Plans Get Canceled So You Can Get Cozy
There's no better feeling than someone canceling plans you didn't really want to do anyway.
Your Favorite Part of the Day Is Taking Off Your Bra
The best part of the day is ripping your bra off as soon as you walk through the front door. That's when relaxation truly begins.
The Delivery Man Knows Your Takeout Order
Let's be honest, you know your favorite restaurant's phone number by heart, the pizza shop expects your order every Thursday, and the delivery guy sees you at least three times a week. Your fridge is stocked with takeout leftovers by the weekend, and truthfully, that's the way to go.
You Binge Shows Like It’s a Sport
If the Olympics had a race for who could binge the most shows in a weekend, you'd win the gold, hands down.
You Plan the Best Movie Nights
There's no question that you're the go-to hostess for a movie night. Sure, your friends can bring the snacks and candy, but you've got the essentials covered. No one can compete with your movie catalog!
Your Bed Is Your BFF
You'll be the first to admit there might be a few crumbs in your bed, but it's only because you put so much effort into making it a perfect oasis that it doubles as a kitchen table sometimes! Light the candles and cue the mood lighting, you won't be leaving your room anytime soon.
Every Night Is “Self-Care Night”
Whoever said they don't like bubble baths is lying. Every night for you is some type of self-care night. Whether it means watching your favorite movie, baking a cake, or taking a bath, you know what soothes you and that's all that matters.
Bars Just Aren't Your Thing
You'd rather stay safely in the comfort of your bed than shove elbows with a stranger in a sweaty bar, am I right? While the thought of dressing up and getting your hair done is tempting, the idea of dropping $20 on a water-downed drink isn't.
You Have the Best Excuses
No matter the plans, you have an excuse ready in case you want to cancel.
Your Wardrobe Is Mostly Sweatpants and Sweatshirts
Sporting a great sweatpants-and-sweatshirt combo is always a good thing. It's honestly a homebody aesthetic, and you aren't a true homebody if you don't own at least five of each.
When You Do Go Out, You Immediately Look Forward to the End of the Night
You still love going out, but when you are out, you're thinking about how amazing it will be when you get home. Your cozy bed is waiting for you!
