So yes, the number of people in my social life may be "sparse", but I'm extremely satisfied with the company. I feel no lack.

Same here. I have one really good friend, and we do everything together. However, we aren't very good at "socialization". When we have to be around other people, we usually talk about programming, hacking, webdesign, and physics. Any other people within hearing range usually just shake their heads in pity, and ask themselves if my friend and I are speaking English.

Do I have a social life? Not really in the manner of many friends, but in the quality of friends, I would be nearly unsurpassed.
