Life after university is depressing... - Page 4

post #46 of 100
I agree that post-college life is just so much better in every way. You have a career, an income, a trajectory you're working on. New hobbies, new skills. More travel, assets, maturity. As a man, 20s dating is better than college, and 30s dating is even better than 20s.

You're just going through a transition. Try to live in a populated area with other young people. Are you in a big city? Time to break out of your sheltered shell.

The reason you're depressed is because all you do is come home and do nothing. It's boring. It's not living. I'd be depressed as well.
that sounds perilously like advice that I once gave you. Glad it sank in. That's how the world is supposed to work.

You sound depressing to be around, maybe that is why you can't make any friends.

Can you not go out with people from your office? I would start drinking also, makes it much easier to meet people your age then being the guy that doesan't drink.

I will never admit that I gained that advice from anything but personal experience and wisdom.


Thanks, BTW

I am officially freaked out now that I've graduated. I'm at home for a bit and then moving to a new city where NONE of my friends from school will be (i.e. not NY). I'm not worried about meeting people there, but I'm worried that none of them will ever be as good friends with me as the people I met and lived with at college for the last four years, mainly because we'll all be working most of the time instead of having random days and nights of adventure. Hell, even when I think of adults, it seems as if most of their best friends are from college or earlier. Someone tell me this isn't the case.

This IS the solution and should be wisdom to every person who feels like the OP. You either trust and follow the advice or sit for years til you figure the exact same thing out on your own.

It's not. When you start the friendship from scratch at this older age, you will become even better friends with them. Kinda common sense when you think about it; you know yourself better and can adequately realize who you relate and bond with the most based on personality and common interests. This will trump years of experience of growing up together, I promise.
