Re: Poll: Are your aikido friends your main social community in your life?
Yes. While I do have plenty of non-aikido friends, I spend more time with and/or talking to or emailing or IM-ing with dojo friends. I train six days a week, so it only makes sense that that would be so.
Besides the dojo, school, my new job, and my kids, I don't have a lot of social time, ha!
