Is it true that the life of a programmer is lonely?

If you are talking about dime a dozen programmers = Yes they do have their lives intact.

If you are talking about a passionate programmer. = No they don't have a life. They are shunned and not socially accepted because they dare to think differently.

The actual definition of a programmer [Dime a dozen VS Passionate one differs completely]

I have both kinds in my circle. Guys who study what they are taught. Guys who do what they are told and guys who just follow orders fall under dime a dozen programmers category [No offense to anyone but honestly speaking just knowing English doesn't makes one a Shakespeare or some poet. So just knowing coding doesn't makes you a programmer]

This dime a dozen have wonderful life. They are not passionate about anything. All they care about is their salary payout. From 10 morning to 6 evening they are programmers after that they are just normal human beings.

Now about passionate ones.

This types are not worried about payout salaries etc. Infact they don't even have much friends and have truck load of personal issues. But they are not aware of it or they don't care about those personal issues. Their total focus is on their programming. 24/7 they live programmer life and in middle of the night they might think of some logic and get up from bed to try it out. [Seldom happens for guys who are dime a dozen. They don't get up from bed in middle of night to implement their logic.]

By definition both kinds are programmers. Depends on which one you choose to look at.
