I've been on these forums for a while, but I've not been active recently. I've also withdrawn from the ongoing veg*n vs meat-eating battle in the Health forums. Most of my posts are from there.
So here's what's been going on with me. My best friend/roommate just moved out leaving me in a big house alone. My girlfriend just broke up with me. It wasn't a very long relationship but it was really intense. The combination of the two has left me feeling very alone. I've decided that this time, unlike other times that this sort of thing has happened in my life, that I need to be proactive about getting out and connecting with people.
So, what I'm looking for is suggestions of activities, events and other ways to meet people and get involved that you might not find listed on meetup.com or the local newspaper. Where do you go to get your social fix? How do you connect with new people?
Any Ideas are welcome, I'm always up for new things.

I always think the best way to meet people is to join a group where there's a lot of interaction Team sports like soccer allow for a good feeling of being part of something. But something like Yoga or Tai Chi can help you to heal yourself and meet others if that's the type of thing you'd want to do??
Random courses? Like photography? Or like... candle making?? Something random that'll make you laugh?
Not sure if any of that helped
Just get out there! Do whatever you feel like at the time! Be a YES Man ha ha

My social fix tends to be around my personal interests. So bowling in leagues is one way I meet different people- but even if you went a few times to open play you would get the chance to meet new people. I find music concerts another great outlet to meet new people in a relaxed setting.
The key is finding your own hobbies, interests and passions and seeing if you can channel one or two into more social opportunities. Good luck and keep us posted on the progress.

Keep yourself busy and the loneliness will pass.
