I have never felt so isolated as I did today while trying to fill out paperwork for a government background check. They ask for three good friends, roommates, co-workers, etc. who can vouch for what you over the last five years, not including relatives. I am happy with my isolation in general, but trying to come up with three "good" friends where I knew both the address and phone number was the hardest part of the 2 or so hours I spent on the paperwork. (And I still ended up using aunts.) 80% of my social interaction is with relatives, and the other 20% about evenly split between internet acquaintances and classmates/coworkers. I don't know anyone's address, even people I talk to and have phone numbers for, and I am not asking for someone's address so that I can provide it to the government for a background check.

Making stupid government forms easier to fill out is a stupid reason to wish I had closer friends, when I never feel that way until I am confronted with something like this.
