I have never been very sociable in that way. I tend to want to hibernate at home after a hard day and never wanted a lot of company either. I always felt that my home was my sanctuary, my safe refuge, and was loath to share it with anyone. I was very insecure and felt quite uncomfortable with company, thinking I was being judged on my furniture or my housekeeping habits. Also, for many years, my closest and best friend was my sister. We did everything together, movies, crafts, etc. So I never had a need for a friend outside of the family. Now that I’m older, and partly handicapped, I don’t even answer the door if hubby is not there to do it. I am a true hermit and am happy with my choice, as long as I have hubby and daughter to spend time with.
