Am i becoming anti social?

I'm not depressed or anything... I just don't feel like going out. I would much rather stay home and watch tv or be on the internet.. I keep telling my friends that i am busy whenever they ask me to hang out because i just dont feel like it..

Answer:
Becoming less sociable than usual is one of many signs of depression, but that alone doesn't mean you are depressed. It could also a sign of being overloaded, i.e., having too much structure in your life. It could also be a sign of how you feel about your relationships with your friends. Maybe those particular relationships aren't that meaningful to you. If thats the case, try and seek out relationships which ARE more meaningful to you.

I'm normally very content with being alone, but lately, instead of feeling alone, I've felt lonely. Those are two very different things, and I know that in my case, it IS depression, but that doesn't necessarily mean it is depression for you.

I don't think one simply "becomes anti social". Usually, there is a good reason for that. Maybe you're spending a lot of time at work, or maybe you are needing more variety in your life, or maybe you just got sick of hanging out with the same people day after day after day. That is certainly not an exhaustive list, but it might give you a place to start from to examine how you feel, and why you feel that way.

I wish you the best of luck.
Yes, you are becoming anti-social.

You probably should go out at least one a week. Or maybe you need new friends that actually are entertaining.
No you are not...sometime one gets tired of going out too much...like when you eat too much of a certain food you get tired of it...sames goes for this...don't worry...enjoy being at home and chillin' the urge to go out will strike again...but for now you mental state needs chill time :)
Hmm.. sounds like you're going through a phase. happens to all of us . or maybe a midlife crisis. Don't worry ... although I would start working on it ... And maybe try force myself to start going out And i'm sure you're gonna like it and start going out again...!!
No. I find going out more trouble than its worth a lot of times. I like my house and I like being home. Sometimes we change what gives us pleasure. Enjoy this time, its always possible you may find pleasure in your friends and going out again soon. If you find that it becomes a problem and people you are close to remark on it, it may be time to check it our with a health professional. Otherwise, take the time to do this. Explain to your friends that you are really busy now. Caution: you must make time for them or you will lose them.
no i do not think you are anti social...but, i'd be concerned...as, you are young, (i think), and, most young people like to go about and do alot of things. maybe you should invite your friends to stay with you at your house and watch tv with you...at least one time per week.
