We never go out anywhere

So...In a previous post I explained that I like online dating because I'm a homebody and don't socialize much, which makes it hard to meet people. Anyway, while browsing through ads I came across a lot of men who described themselves as very active, athletic, always on the go etc. Many were looking for women who are just as active as they are. I often read the words "No couch potatoes, please." Well, I may not be proud to admit it but I am a couch potato. Usually if I force myself to go out and socialize, I end up feeling uncomfortable and spend the whole time wishing I was at home. (This has nothing to do with self-esteem or anxiety - I just like the quiet comforts of home).
For about two months now I've been dating someone that I did meet online. Turns out, he also doesn't like to go out much. And so...we never go out anywhere. We pick up food or order in and we watch movies. He has asked if I prefer to eat in the restaurant or just take it to go - and I say take it to go. Some people say that we're perfect for each other since neither one of us like to go out. But...mostly from hearing how other people date, I've come to question our dating style.
We did go out on our first date - restaurant and then a walk in the neighbourhood. We also went out on our 4th date - a restaurant and a movie. In his profile, as favourite activities he listed fishing, movies and intimate conversations. When I asked him how he usually spends his free time when we're not together he says that he walks his dog, sleeps, visits his parents or rents a movie.
So, here I was looking for someone who would accept my homebody nature - and I did. And now I'm wondering if this is normal.
What do you think?
