No, but I have a wife who is social for me.

I dislike most people I encounter and find being in the company of others for extended periods exhausting. Really surprised me when I met someone I liked being around enough to marry.

I force myself to socialize like I force myself to exercise, because it's good for my health. I generally only socialize with my family and the woman I am dating. I prefer one on one meetings to groups.

I have close friends moreso than numerous friends, and I have my share of friendly acquaintances, but sure, I'm social and enjoy an interesting conversation with a stranger, even if I'll probably never meet that person again. There was a time when I was younger when it seemed like with two exceptions all my friends were male and everyone who disliked me was female but somewhere that faded away. All that said, my non-business, non-family social interaction these days centers on about four people, two of them related to each other.

To lay a truth bare, I used to have a job in which being social and adapting to another individual's personality and the unfolding situation was vital to the job's success, and let me tell you, being social is an acquirable skill.

These days, I've become anti-social.  I prefer small groups better, also, and avoid large parties. 
I have lost several of my favorite people, but I am still blessed with many friends.

I enjoy being around people, and socializing both online and IRL.
I'm just a "people person."  But there are very few that I let get really close to me.

Hanniger! I'll be waiting in HELL for you!

Oh hells no! 
Any place where there's a whole lot of people I want NO part of.  Crowds, functions, events, etc.  When overly talkative people try to carry on a conversation with me I try to discourage them from doing so with subtle hints.  If they just don't get it I will walk away.
I am thankful for the internet so that I don't have to talk to people much.  This gives me the opportunity to type out a thoughtful reply or message when I communicate.
I'm not a fan of Thanksgiving for the company I have to be around (even though they're not bad people in general) and the food I generally don't like.

I had this one uncle who used to call me up for lunch...
he died about ten years ago...
I had pneumonia at the time, so I couldn't visit him in his last hours, & I was on this psych med that had my days & nights turned around, so I missed his funeral...

For some reason people like me more than I like them.  Apparently I'm a social butterfly when I drink and can go into 5 different pubs in 5 different parts of the county here and meet at least 4-5 acquaintances and a bunch of new people who end up buying rounds for me.  I don't know why, cause I'm an a***ole. Question

But I've several close friends.  Most I've known almost 30 years.

My job requires me to be 'social' as I usually get most of all new temp workers to show them and explain their new job. I never do this in a strict professional/authoritative way, I always try to make this as humanly normal and pleasant as possible.

That said I have no problem socialising in general, but I prefer not to socialize too much, especially outside the job. Having many friends means maintaining a certain level of commitment and I don't always have time for that. Sounds selfish but that is the way I roll.
