Meeting people in the modern world without relying on apps and the internet seems like a mission impossible, but it truly isn’t. If you feel like your plans to meet people online aren’t panning out, here are some of the best ways to expand your social circle in real life.
If you have some free time on your hands, find a charity that aligns with your beliefs and try volunteering there to help the cause and meet like-minded people.
Clubs and classes related to your hobbies and activities you’re interested in are also a great place to meet new people who are passionate about the same things as you.
Instead of working out on your own, try joining a gym or yoga class. You’ll probably get to meet a few people that you can hang out with once the class is over.
Friend of a Friend
When friends that you already have invite you to spend time together, don’t dodge their calls. You’ll get to meet many interesting new people once you start moving in the same social circles.
Strike Up a Conversation
Instead of waiting for interesting people to come to you, be the first one to strike up a conversation at a library, art gallery, museum, or even a bar. Other people are often just as shy, but someone needs to make the first move.
