I'm 23 and lately I've been increasingly more aware of my complete lack of social life. It's always been in the back of my mind, but I just didn't care. I did whatever I could to distract myself and it worked.
But it's been 4 years since I've done anything social with someone other than my parents or sister. I literally haven't talked to anyone other than my family in four years, other than store clerks and people I talk to on the phone at my office.
So where do I go? What do I do? I don't live in the biggest city, in the three cities around me there are around 60,000 people. And being the pathetic person that I am, I studied the demographics and figured that there are 9,888 people 20-29 years old. Of that 9,888 probably 1/3 would have anything in common with me based on income levels, marital status, and education levels. So I have 3263 people who could potentially be friends with.
So where do I go and what do I do? I don't think I could go to a bar, and also don't think I would like the kind of person who enjoys bars. I don't drink and I just can't see myself ever liking someone who goes out to bars every weekend.
So where do these people hang out? Where do people in your towns hang out? Hell, where do you guys hang out if anywhere? I hate coffee, but have been thinking about forcing myself to try and like it so I could go to coffee shops and possibly end up talking to someone.
