Do you like company?

My dad and his wife are having some people over for lunch and to play games today. They invited the single people (with or without children) from their church over to have a nice afternoon. A couple of months ago they invited the senior citizens from church over, with some special precautions to make them feel better. Both my dad and his wife got tested for Covid to reassure them that their hosts would not expose them to it (in this case they also wore masks). What surprised me was how long they stayed. It started at 1pm, and I kid you not, they stayed until 9:30pm! My dad said he and his wife were really tired, but so glad they all had a good time. Do you like having company over?

We used to enjoy having friends and family in. Now we are more focused on spending time with our family. Either having them in or visiting at their place is fine.

@AmbiePam I think that for some age groups, we may never go back to the way things were. Its too soon to tell really.

I am not a fan of having my house full of people. My husband and I are pretty introverted, and believe it or not, this life behind a screen is perfect for us. We can communicate with as many folks as we want, and they're not making a lot of noise and trying to touch us. LOL Not everyone is super-social.

It depends on the function. If we are with family get together , uninvited guests are very boring

I used to enjoy having company but no I don't have company very often unless it's family, That does seem as if everyone had a great time if they stayed so long at your dads

You are kind and hospitable. We used to have large company, families, years back. Usually, from another state visiting. I was younger and had my three older daughters helping.

I love it. Unfortunately, I can't go out and smoke or sit long hours out of my bed. So everyone else gets a visit unless it's my doctor or someone helping me.

As long as it's the company that I enjoy I would very much love it. I rarely invite people over my house because I'm too busy. But when I do, I keep them for as long as they want to stay coz I love their company.

Not really since I like being myself inside of a home away from relatives working on my survey and writing work.

There's only a few people in the world I'd love to have over, and a majority aren't even in this continent. My parents come over, and although my dad gets on my nerves with nagging, it's worth it, considering my mom always brings leftover food they had at some restaurant, and maybe a few other things I could use - toilet paper, pens, markers, paper.. And because of her health plan, she has a certain amount to use up, and with the remaining balance, she gives me vitamins. Another reason I don't like company is having to move so many things, and then moving them back after they leave.
