While your friends would like you to believe they are having the best time ever going out every night, the truth is, they’d probably rather be sitting at home on the couch watching Netflix. How do we know?
According to a new survey by Yelp Eat24, 80% of people “admit to having made excuses to avoid going out,” with the top excuses being “too tired,” “hate spending money,” “don’t wanna be around people.” Meanwhile, 30% of people say they wind up disappointed by an evening out, and a third get stressed out and anxious over them.
So, what exactly would we all rather be doing than suffering through another night drinking at a bar, or screaming to talk to each other at a club? Well, the alternatives aren’t really all that surprising, with watching TV or a movie the top choice, followed by chilling out and napping, and eating in.
