Before having Jack if you would have asked me what my idea of a good night would be, it would definitely involve going out, now however is a different story.
I love nights in with Ashley, watching a film and enjoying time just us. But I also love a good get together with the girls.
Interestingly, in a recent survey by Ladbrokes Bingo, 70% of 2000 women said they prefer a girls night in to an evening out on the town. This does surprise me amazingly, maybes its just because of where I live, but staying in is definitely the new going out.
So what exactly puts people off going out. According to the ladies in the survey.
59% said long queues at the bar put them off and were most annoying
54% agreeing the toilets having no toilet roll put them off
48% thought about there feet and were put off by sore feet.
34% said looking after a friend who was a little worse for wear could put a downer on the night. This is definitely one I could agree with, I never really enjoyed my 18th birthday party as I was too busy worrying about my drunken best friend.
An important factor which appeals to a night in to me is money and 60% of the survey agreed, everyone wants to save cash these days. Another thing I like about a night in is having a good old chit-chat and 57% of the ladies surveyed agree.
Recently we had a blogger night in, which was a get-together with some blogging friends. It was such a lovely event and greatly enjoyed maybe more so with the costing being quite low and having great conversation topics.
I definitely prefer a night in these days, what do you prefer? Staying in or going out?
