So yea...how do you make new friends? I mean generally as adults and also as freelancers... I assume quite a few of us do this full time, work from home, and so we have pretty much no physcial social network; and now with this covid thingy looming over our heards, it's pretty much impossible.
Personally, for me:
Curious what you guys do to meet new people.
For now, I don't bother trying to make new friends because I am a student and a freelancer so I get friends from classes or hostel. we always hang out together or study together so don't have to try to make new friends, I just get them without even trying
I'm quite an introvert and quite happy to be on my own.
When I do start going a bit stir-crazy and feel the need for more human company, I have a small group of friends I can arrange for a few pints with. I like it that way and am in no hurry to make new friends (they are often more hassle than they're worth). When I do meet a new person, they're usually the friend of another of my friends.
I have started having long telephone conversations with childhood friends that I haven't seen for years. We share so much and at our age we love talking about the distant past as well as the current times. I always hang up with a huge smile on my face.
