 Being In LOVE With A Homebody

Over the years, homebodies have gotten a really bad rep. In every single Hollywood movie, the shy, introverted girl has the absolute worst luck in the relationship department; nine times out of ten, she has a pretty intense love affair with her couch before her friends convince her to get off of her ass and go after Prince Charming.

Sorry to burst your bubble but that right there is total bullsh*t.

Despite what those rom-coms say, being a homebody doesn't automatically mean that you're lazy, a loner or undateable. There's so much more to introverted Netflix-lovers than that.
