    Finished my first year of college and I'm back home. I have made quite a lot of friends in college and I'm only close friends with a handful of people from high school, and even though I am pretty good friends with some of them, it would be nice to meet some new people for a change.

    How did you guys meet people outside of school when you were around 19 years old? I know work is an obvious one but my current internship is at a start up and the two other people I work with that are my age happen to be some of my good friends, and I don't really get to meet others.

    I started rockclimbing when i was 20. Easy way to meet intelligent people and to have something to do/talk about besides drinking and chasing girls. Also girls LOVE climbers.

    Start doing something you like and you'll find ike minded people that do the same thing. Or just spontaneusly go partying in the city with a bunch of good friends and you'll be suprised how many new people you're gonna meet.

    how big is the metro area you live in? It can be hard to find other people around your same age (22? 23?) in a metro area unless it's got it's own colleges... we are here for you, if you ever decide to become an interneting shut-in.

    Sports always works well. Doesn't matter what - soccer, basketball, mountain biking, even climbing I guess. Charity events too.

    i definitely agree with sports. I've met loads of cool people through local marathon teams and exercise programs. Just be a lack dude that'd you'd want to stumble upon in public

    I love girls that like to climb.


    Anyway, why would anyone want to meet people outside of styleforum???? Anyone you could possibly want to meet is already here.

    Clubs, discotheques, and the line at H&M for the changing rooms are natural habitats for hot chicks.

    As a couch potato, I'd like to find friends online. You could always join some kind of forums for a hobbit, and there you can find friends with same interest. What is more, when your college is far from home, it is likely that you are away from your old friends, so that online communication would be a good way to maintain your friendship.

    Throw a party or something, let your friends bring their friends and problem solved.

    I started dance lessons and then volunteered to host the after-parties at my house.
