A hermit is a person who lives to some greater or lesser degree in seclusion and/or isolation from society.

The life of a hermit is usually very lonely, they don't like going out and seeing other people/friends and prefer to stay indoors.

A hermits best friend is usually his computer or television. They usually find sanctuary in games such as Guitar Hero or World of Warcraft.

Also a word used to describe someone who does not like the same things they do, often they do not see the whole picture and assume the hermit is socially retarded, when in fact he/she may just like thier circle of friends but do not know anyone into what they like to do outside, they will go out on adventure with other people if they ask and it is somthing they may enjoy.
'Are you coming to the party next week'
'No I would rather stay in and watch a movie'
'Oh, you must not like me or the people I hang around with'
'No, not at all, I dont like 'everyone', but I just dont know most of them yet'
'Oh, right, do you want to come and race motocross with me in two months, I have loads of friends at the track'
'Yes absolutely, let me get some money together, I may not manage it, but I will try'
'Cool I know where you can pick up a cheap bike mate, my friends know the used bike market'

A person who would rather play video games than socialize, meet girls online rather than in a bar, & get delivery instead of going out.
Pat is a hermit because all he does is sit around & play video games all day.
