Meeting people in person? Going to a social function? Surely you jest! It's amazing how a technology that is always touted as bringing us all closer together has actually had the completely opposite effect. It's interesting to be a part of the last generation to actually socialize face to face.
A friend of mine has nearly a thousand friends on Facebook, while I have 38. He asked me what the problem was and why I had so few, and I told him that even though I had only 38, I know every single one of them very well and face to face. He couldn't say the same about 20 of his.
I am glad I was born in '72 rather than '92.
