Does anyone notice the more they play...talk...read....and think chess.
The more isolated they become?
I'm sure some of you have many things going on in there lives...
But have any of you since starting Chess become isolated from daily social activities?

I've heard of these "social activities." What do they involve? Are they dangerous?

By isolating yourself and just playing chess you are bound to live longer and have much more money for the good things in life.

I sometimes go out for some drinks with other chess people I know. And, through them, I meet non chesses (although, not many girls for some reason).
So actually chess can help with social life too, it makes it easier to talk to people cause you are used to thinking ahead so are less likely to say something that you have not thought through.
