    It just seems that all my friends are in relationships and no-one wants to do that. I'm finding it really hard to meet people. I do have a couple of single friends, but one of them's a nerd and the other just goes and gets high.

    I need a new social cirlcle. :(

    Do you pass females everyday? There, you have a lot of opportunity to meet some.

    I go to bars/clubs alone every weekend. It's not so bad, the first time you do it is kinda awkward but now I look forward to it, infact I find it better because I can do my own thing and not worry about my friends cockblocking or getting into trouble and me having to save them.

    Just make sure you steer clear of any trouble yourself because you have nobody to save you. :rofl:

    Before anybody says anything, I'm new to Canada and am by myself so I have nobody here. :(

    I go out alone all the time. In fact, I hit up three different bars last night alone. Met a couple of cool peeps towards the end of the night.

    I used to go into a bar alone and be so inside of my head that I'd barely get a beer down before sneaking out sheepishly. Nowadays I really don't give a fuck what people think of me being there alone.

    But my mindset has changed quite a bit. I used to think that people were going to judge me for being out alone. And I felt judged but that was only because *I* was judging myself.

    Now, I've adopted the mindset that there are like 30 or 40 other people there, so I'm never alone. :big grin:

    Going out to a bar alone is really good practice with social skills, I say do it and do it often.

    no but i've been a third wheel with my mom and step dad on a few occasions, completely on accident because I don't know many people around where they live and they like to go out even when I'm coming to visit. It sucked. I'm a girl so I pretty much just sat around drinking and playing on my phone. UGH.

    I used to do it a while ago.

    Now I can't stand it. I think when my game sucked hardcore, i liked being able to to spend an hour getting the balls to approach or getting punted with no one knowing.

    No. I wish I could work up to that. :hs:


    But, I have no qualms eating by myself or going to the movies by myself. The more you do it, the easier it gets, and the less awkward it feels.

    Arclight... cafes are an alternative. I used to frequent the same cafe seven days a week to sketch or read.

    I have..kind of... Went with a buddy of mine that DJ's so I was pretty much solo the whole time. It wasn't too bad because I ended up getting bored which forced by to chat some girl up.

    Must of gotten lucky because she proceeded to tell me about how she was in para-legal and also took weekly pole dancing classes at the club. Directed interest on that subject and 20 min later I'm sitting on a couch getting a personal pole dance. :bigthumb:

    Other than that though, I feel kinda wierd going it alone.

    I never go alone, but I'm a girl.

    If I was a guy, I might go alone, but be careful about drinking too much!

    yeah I used to do it all the time because my friends never wanted to go out. I don't anymore but I could without any problem. it forces you to talk to people.
