I do enjoy a good night out clubbing, I must admit. I don't go for the conversation, I go to get hammered and dance to the phat beats*. Certainly is not a way to advance friendship or meet new people (the cold light of the next day reveals that for what it is).
* I hope I said that right. Would that person who has a Great Social Life please comment

Probably not - I think people who read magazines like that are looking for a Lifestyle to belong to. A lot of things try to sell themselves as being a necessary part of the Lifestyle that a person wants.
I say "Bugger that". I'll make my own Lifestyle decisions, and be a pain in the arse for market-segmenters everywhere
But then again I shop for most of my clothes at Marks and Spencers, a retailer better known for being middle aged and sensible, rather than where ever it is the trendy people go (but being 6'4 and mildly overweight isn't trendy as it is, therefore they don't sell anything I can physically wear anyway). I can't and won't do Lifestyle.
But I do have what I consider to be a good social life - I have good friends from university I keep in close contact with, and good friends in my local area - mainly from the theatre group I'm involved with.
I also enjoy being on my own - does that make me anti-social? I don't think so myself, but some would cast me in that position.
So I won't vote in the poll, because I don't think I'm a fit for any of the answers.

There's nothing wrong with that, Matt! Take pride in the fact that not everyone can rapidly recite the first 20 elements of the periodic table in perfect order without blinking. (I'm not the only one who can do that, and talks about it, right?)
