Don’t get me wrong. I love this city enough that I am still very glad that I have moved here post-graduation. I am half relaxing half job searching, but even the relaxing isnt quite relaxing since I am always thinking about the job search. That is not the topic of discussion for this post however, because another issue needs to be addressed — it is Friday night and I am sitting in front of the television watching multiple episodes of “What Not To Wear” due to lack of much social life.
I have been out with friends a few times but nothing too consistent since they are either in town for short trips or live just a little to far away to do things with more often. Plus there is something to be said for meeting new people 🙂 So the question is here — what things would you advise that I try?
San Diego was on the list of Best of Citysearch 2008 as a great place for singles, but as you’ll notice on the site, they are all bars, not the type of place/people I’m too interested in. There have to be other places to go, it just seems like you can’t do anything alone these days without seeming too strange?
I am excited to go to the single’s branch here on Sunday and get involved with church stuff. I haven’t officially been to the branch yet but I already got a calling this week 🙂 Once I go, I should find some people there that I click with. This brings up another thing – Im not a big fan of the weekly volleyball socials or that kind of thing, nor can you meet people very well at dances … I need to find a niche somewhere in between.
So I need some encouragement and/or ideas of how to be social when I am starting out on my own – no automatic wing woman to help me out. Luckily I am very confident in who I am and I dont mind doing things on my own so I’m not too lonely or anything, but I do want to have a game plan before that even gets close to happening 🙂
