People go fishing dating
Obviously I haven’t tried everything here, but I tried most of it and ONLY included what makes sens for a young man to do to meet friends : Sports Class : Boxing, Gym and Aerobics, etc. It’s a good way to take care of yourself and meet people.
Although, it’s always better to take a class where the people are young and interesting. If you want to do it just to meet friends, then fine. Hobbie/Sports-based Group : Photography, Guitare (or any other instrument) lovers, Fitness and Running Clubs, Improv Clubs, Actors Studio, Philosophy Lovers Club.
Professional Events : Fairs, Function-Driven Groups (example: sales, marketing, development, advertising, architects, lawyers, real estate, etc…). People go to these events to do “professional networking”.
You can talk to people about the event’s subject, but the more you can talk about THEM, the more chances you’ll become a friend.
Social Events : Expat Events, Social Groups, Networking Events, 20-something After-work Events.
Also, if you’re a little shy, don’t worry, these are the EASIEST people to talk to. it’s amazing how you can take any subjet, let’s say “fishing”, go to google, type “fishing forum san diego” and you’ll find a whole community of people interested in that.
You can go to a forum around something you love, start sharing your opinions on topics and then send private messages to some people you want to meet. But you can just start talking to someone at the bar, guy or girl.
