I am an indoorgirl. It means I spend most of my time on the indoor pursuits, like playing computer games, watching TV programs and sleeping. If it is possible, I prefer spend whole day indoor. My classmates think that the very reason for me do not have a boyfriend for my activity limits me to know more people. I also find that it is a really problem but I find it too hard for me to change my life style now. Is it a kind of mental illness?

Yes, spending more time in door means that you don't have much time for the social life. Sometimes you need to change yourself and take a break. In fact outdoor acctivities can be fun, too. Such as swimming, hiking, playing badminton etc. Perhaps you will also like shopping as well as other girls?:) I love Chinajavascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$cphMainContent$lbStart','')

When I was in my hometown, I prefer spending time outside, for there are so many beautiful sightseeings. But now in Shanghai, there are few natural sceneries, what you can see outside is people. And the way for people killing time is like KTV ans so on. Time is boring. If stay indoor, I can keep quite and see something I like.

I am a bit of an indoor person myself; however, I do still enjoy some outdoor time playing sports with others and joining social gatherings once in a while. I don't think there is anything wrong with the preference to stay indoors, but everything you do should be in moderation and hence you should be at least doing some stuff outdoors too even though you don't really like it. If you don't explore the outdoors, you won't know the beauty of the outdoor scenery that you are missing out on. So, my advice is, try to spend some time outdoors - if you're uncomfortable with it, try to do it gradually. Hopefully in the near future you will be able to change your lifestyle and preferences!

Yes, I agree with you. Though the internet is very powerful. It can take to any part of the world, it is still different from something in the real world. I should go out to find something interesting and find out the wonderful part of live out of my room. Thank you.

i like doing things indoors but i guess that is good because we have a long and cold Canadian winter here!

Oh, I see. As the weather in Canadian is cold in winter, and the winter in your place is longer than many other place in the world. I think you have to stay at home. But in my place most of the time is suitable for outdoor actions, but I do not like spending time outside. I feel good when I sit before the computer and chat with people from other part of the earth. But in fact my communication circle in the real world is small. Is that a problem?

perhaps your just fond of staying at home. i prefer to stay home too because there are lesser expenses when your just at home. but of course its unhealthy if for the whole year you just stay in your house. perhaps go out sometime and meet some friends. balance is important.

No, of course it's not a mental illness. Maybe you are an introvert and that's probably why you don't really like to socialise?
