Would you consider yourself to be a shut-in?

If so, why?

(I know most people here probably are, so perhaps a better question would be who isn't a shut-in?)

I suppose I would. I would say it's mostly out of convenience. All of my friends meet up at my place so aside from college and family affairs I don't actually have much of a reason to go out.

I spend a lot of time on the computer and watching anime, but I also work and hang out with my friends and girlfriend a lot too. Maybe like half shut-in and half nonshut-in. I only talk to like 3 people outside of the internet though.

I have a friend living nearby who I talk to on a nearly daily basis but beyond that I don't really interact with people in real life and I hardly ever leave the house. A working internet connection seems to suit all my needs so I don't have any real drive to venture outdoors. That said I do get stir crazy from time to time.

Kind of. Most of my friends live in different states or countries, so we just play video games or watch anime together. I do have some friends that are local and I do go out with them every once an a while, but as an introvert I prefer to stay indoors and doing my own thing. Only real things I leave the house for regularly are college and family affairs.

Probably not. I have a job that I work 5 days a week and go into town to get snacks and manga once a week.

During the summer maybe. I do go out for shopping and watching movies that come out.

Probably not. I go out pretty often just to hang out or eat dinner with my friends. I can't sit at home on the internet for days on end, it drives me nuts.

I'm very introverted, but I don't think I'd consider myself to be a shut in. Staying in doors for too long kinda just depresses me.

No, I need to work so I can continue to sustain myself with ice cream.

I recently moved across the country, so I don't really have any friends that I would consider close enough to hang out with outside of school. So, I'm not sure. Naturally, I'm not a shut in.

Yeah I would. I spend most of my time in my room and only go out when I have no choice (running out of soda is an extreme emergency case) or sometimes at night.

Nights are nice, especially in the summer.

I need to go out a lot for work, but I consider myself introverted and shy.

Oddly enough, I'm the other way around: I stay at home for my (school)work, but I consider myself energetic and outgoing.

All told, I can't help but wonder why.

Spent 1 day free of charge ( Without bday invitation or "party" invitation ) to be with some "friends" I know. Was fun.
Stayed inside the rest of the year.

I would say I am a really anti social person and probaby a NEET considering that I do not really have that many people that "Likes me" nor "dislikes me" so I guess I am walking on the edge of both.
No point socializing where I live. Too much distance between people and people are too different from me here.
