When someone is being a hermit crab or hermit crabbing they lack the motivation to leave the house. They stay home in solitude and shelter themselves from the rest of the world after they have pushed everyone close away.
Realizing that no one wants me has left me hermit crabbing all day.

I just want to be a hermit grab and shut people out.

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.
