I am twenty four years old and I have been happily domesticated for five years. I really love my boyfriend and don't see anything wrong with him most of my free time, but I miss having other people to hang out with. When I was younger I was a very social person. I wouldn't say that I was super popular or anything, but I had a decent set of friends that I loved hanging out with. Over the past couple of years I have lost a vast majority of this friendship base due to several factors that can be blamed on both me and other parties. There are obviously some people I would like to reach out to and make contact with and I feel I am at a point in my life where this is necessary, yet I also need new blood. I am fairly outgoing and enjoy making new friends but I am somewhat apprehensive about letting new people get to know me and asking for their phone number/email/blog/whatever for some reason. This feeling is very new to me and I am not sure how to deal with it.
Would you say you are outgoing or shy?
Besides the internet, how did you meet your last IRL friend?
How do you personally go about meeting new people?
