This one caught my fancy and I am going to tell you exactly what to do when you want to go out all by yourself and meet newer friends.
Also, I would be more convincing about it because at one point in time I was exactly like this and aloof. I mean I had a couple of very close friends and when we split like a friendly split. One of them moved out of the country after getting hitched and the other one went out to work in a different state, I was practically all alone every weekend thinking of all the possible fun we could have had if the toe minions were there too!
But at one point I decided and told myself that I had to go out to make new friends. I could sit lingering about old times and make myself feel miserable. So, I did and I cannot tell you how liberating it was!
Here is the guide:
- You don’t miss important events:
If there is an event that you love to attend and you are feeling awkward going out alone, keep your mind away from thinking about it. Concentrate on what you are going to wear and accessorize yourself with. If it is a lecture then what preparation are you going out with and if it’s an entertainment event then how well are you going to catch everyone’s attention with your dressing up! This will help you frame a positive outlook towards going out and before you know you would be there!
- Meeting and making new friends when you are by yourself is more comfortable when you are alone. When you are with your old friends, you will notice that you hardly bother to look around or talk with others. In a way, you are missing a lot of learning and experience.
- You can go out at your own terms!
No one to nag you to comply going back early or stay later than what you intended. You are your own prince and you know when to call it quits. Recently, I had been to a real course that taught hands-on online mixing and mastering and I realized that being alone did not matter too much to me anymore. I was so comfortable in my own skin. You will be too, trust!
