Do you invite guests to your home often?

I don't invite anyone over very often unless I know they'll only be hanging around for under an hour. I live in an apartment and I don't like my roommate so we tend to stay in my room and there's only one chair and my bed to sit on. So it's awkward. I invite only when forced into it.

I only invite guests to my home during special occasions such as fiesta, birthdays and special events like Christmas & New Year. All in all, I invite guests about 4 times a year to my home. I don't normally entertain or invite some people over for dinner or something out of hand.

No, we do not often invite guest in our house. Not unless there is an occasions that we want to celebrate with our friends. First, because we budget everything here. i dont think it is practical having guests that often. Second, there are lot of things that we have to do... and we cant afford spending the whole day entertaining guests. We spend extra time with each other as family. Third, we know that like us... they are also busy with their own lives.

Hi nishdan01, nowadays I seldom invite friends to my house as I don’t have to make any preparation to entertain guests. I prefer to meet them outside in restaurant or café where everything is served so conveniently and the environment is more comfortable too, especially those located at the seaside. I take it as a psychological burden to invite guests to my house as I scare I might not be able to entertain them well. Of course to wait for somebody at home who is not punctual is an unpleasant experience as I will feel restless and couldn’t do anything peacefully at that moment. In another way I still could do some reading or enjoying some snacks while waiting at the restaurant or café.
