Can somebody help me translate this sentence?


Using a dictionary, I guess it describes a person who doesn't want to leave his house. But I am not sure what is the exact meaning of it.

  • 足不出户 (成语)lit. not putting a 足foot outside 不出户to stay at home never step out of doors; confine oneself within doors remain within doors; remain quietly at home behind closed doors; keep (stay) indoors; be confined to the house; never to go out; never to leave one's home 半宅体 (for meaning of individual characters see dictionary) seems to have been borrowed from Japanese (denoting a type of individual), see Japanese dictionary

Look up 宅男,宅女, that will point you in the right direction.

I'm a never-goes-out kind of half a nerd.

  • 半宅体 implies that he still go out a bit more often than those 宅男,宅女s. This sentence is hard to translate.
