So, chatting off line with a fellow pinsider about pin-friends got me wondering how many others are out there like me/us.
I got into this hobby without having a single friend who liked pinball, or knew about it for that matter. Since then, I have met some pretty cool folks who are, very much, into pinball. What's developed for me is two distinct groups of friends, who don't mix.
Much of my original core group, and ironically enough, the only ones where my wife shows up, could really care less about pinball. Some walk right past them and don't even seem to notice. Sure, we have nights with friends over to play, but it's mostly about kids and chatting, and not much adult playing. I can try to introduce pinball all I want, but it just doesn't really stick. Not with my friends. I find this fascinating given how much I have grown to love pinball. Amazing how different people's tastes can be. There's nothing wrong with is at all...Just find it interesting given the extremes. Perhaps a sign that this hobby is more of an obsession? I know my wife would agree there, and she likes pinball!
Anyone else seem to have life developing into two halves? Anyone only have pin friends?
