At first, my parents let me play outside. But as we were getting older, they noticed that the people outside were getting into doing stupid things, and they decided they were a bad influence and kind of prohibited me from playing outside. I still had a friend I could visit, but I guess that unlike most anons here I didn't care at all about it. As long as I had a single friend I was more than satisfied.
A few years later my parents started trying to encourage me to go out, but I didn't want to. I started to legitimately hate spending time outside home except for school. Eventually I tried to rile up my friends to do more things together outside of school, but they were even less prone to going out, so we just met two or three times a year. I had exactly one friend that liked going out though, and for two years I did meet him many times, even going to his house multiple times in a week.
I did use my computer a lot and prefer it to leaving my house, but I never liked to talk to people in the internet, except for real life friends. I had internet access from basically the first days when it was more widely available, but that left me scared of the internet. Discovering anonymous imageboards has been great because it's the only place in the internet where I can talk to people without being anxious.
