I think most adults spend most of their time either with family, or alone. Oh, it's fun to think about the lives some of our favorite TV characters lived (such as on "Friends," "Living Single," and "Seinfeld"). But, the truth is that there aren't enough hours in the day for us to get our work done well (home and employment tasks), spend time with family, and still be able to spend inordinate amounts of time "shooting the breeze" with good friends. I'm single with no kids, so it's not about whether you're single or have a family. I think it's about what must be your priorities in managing your life. I have some wonderful friends that I love, and I even wish I could spend more time with them (either in person or through electronic communication). But sadly, there's just not enough time.
