Yes.
Simply, yes, I do.
I even have no IRL friends cause they all can't withstand the awesomeness of my personality (which is practically next to none) and I serve myself in everything.
Yep! I do!

those who thinks being behind the computer and keep gaming is a nlifer are truly wrong.infact those who game 24/7 have the biggest social life.internet is the biggest mass media atm in this century and u being using it the most makes u the most social guy.The Internet has enabled entirely new forms of social interaction, activities, and organizing, thanks to its basic features such as widespread usability and access.

btw yes i do have one.

But can you look a girl in the eye and make small talk?

What you're doing here is canvassing an ideal definition for socializing and asserting that your definition is universally accepted. Since we're confined locally, the accepted definition (at least gleaned from the rest of this thread) for socializing requires actual real life interaction. The internet may be a medium for enhancing widespread interactions, but due to the disposition to objectify individuals on the internet as subhuman. (would you ever swear at a person in real life? how about on the internet?) This usually causes social regressions in real life.

''Human beings are social animals, and the tenor of our social life is one of the most important influences on our mental health. Without positive, durable relationships, both our minds and our bodies fall apart. We begin life dependent for survival on the quality of relationship with our primary caregiver, usually Mom. And the nature of that relationship typically influences all others in our life.Our survival as a species similarly hinges on our capacity for social living. Most of human history spent in small groups in which each was dependent on the others for survival, and much evidence suggests that that is the condition to which we are best adapted.''

so this means Basicly those who almost never made a step outside in the world. also has a social life.(you are no subhuman on the internet)you are yourself. Perhaps u got more guts to say things here what u wouldnt do in real life but so its still ur social life.i was so pointing this out mainly because most of the guys (specially on the internet) think those guys have no social life wich is absurd.its not my opinion u see i study psychology and thus these things occur in our ethnic minority

(but i agree with 1 thing.without a real life communication or any of an active adaption.u can not have a social life.)

You just... disclaimed your thoughts.
How could you be yourself in this kind of virtual world if...
Social communication mostly depends on eye contact and instant connection between two individuals that shares information.

In my case, I don't have an active virtual social life for year already.
I might be known for works or whatever, but I'm not into it.
I can say that there is a big gap between real social life and artificial one, virtual that is.
Well, I prefer virtual world for the ones who cannot adopt and keep up with the world we are living in.

Anyway, my own real social life isn't be so bad, since I've graduated programming and music schools.
I've met a lot of friends & congenial people.
Also, I'm hosting 3 music bands and one programming software.
Furthermore, participating & organizing clubs, discos, parties, culture events.

Thank you

''You just... disclaimed your thoughts''

didnt u always start with an real life communication.ur parents what u are u learn to write u go to school.u choose what u wanna be and what is good and wrong.i am not disclaiming my thoughts.


but hold it. example: some guy never made a step outside his house(there are plenty of them). he has made no social communication after he left his parent's home.while regarded that every human has a social life? how then? well mainly because the internet keeps growing it isnt even massmedia for the most people anymore.its a home a family and a social life. u can buy things order u can see someone also ''making eye contact''(webcam) itself this is what i mean why internet isnt just a massmedia anymore u can almost do anything on the internet and believe me alot of people live like this.

btw u got an epic ''social life''

Obviously, we have different point of view and I don't wanna fall into deep public discussion here.
So far, I cannot even slightly agree with you.

Webcam doesn't give you Eye-2-Eye contact, it sucks, doesn't it?
Moreover, you cannot actually poke the girl, dammit. ~hehe

We are talking about virtual/real-life comparison.
Your idea about not going of home was based on virtual life facts, so I got it that way.
