I hear this term used often. He's a homebody, or "she's a homebody." What the hell is a homebody? Usually I can figure a word out from the context, but I can't in this case. Maybe some of you people with hip kids can stop counting your money (from the tax rebate) for a minute and let me know. Maybe I'm out of touch. -Nick Viejo.

just someone who likes to spend their time at home/around the house rather than out 'on the town'

I believe homebody is an old term, not a new hip term. It refers to a person who prefers to stay home over going out and socializing.

I think it's a polite way of calling someone unsociable or even boring - maybe even agoraphobic. [:D]

Maybe "homeboy" is the new gender specific term used in place of homebody by kids? LOL.
