Making friends outside of school

    Hello all!

    I'll admit I'm not sure how to make friends now that I'm out of school. I've made a few friends at work but would love advice on finding new people who share my interests. I'm not a big drinker so not keen on hanging out at bars but not sure how else to meet people my age. My town is mostly designed for those over 40 or under 16.
    Thoughts? Ideas?

    I guess if you have a particular interest, participating in that interest in a group setting could help.

    So if you liked meditation, going to a group meditation practice would help.
    Yoga is another one. There's lots of yoga classes in lots of places, and there's usually females in your age group (assuming you're looking for female friends) who go there.

    I don't know what your interests are though

    Are there any community centres near you. What about meetup.

    I want to try that, but there aren't exactly a lot of groups for playing video games, or watching anime, or most "nerdy" activities.
    The only meetup spot in town is the library and the events I would be interested have an age cap of 18. Hence, my dilemma.
