    Thank you both so much for sharing, I’m also transitioning from student life to real world and although I live in the same place right now the effort and compromise to see my friends as we are all so busy takes a lot but I know it’s worth it. I hope things get better for you soon Ria and Amanda thanks for the great advice!

    It’s not just post-college! I moved to the bay area a few months ago and am also having trouble meeting people. I’m mid twenties and don’t have any friends who know people here (as I’m from Canada) and all the events seem to be in the city which is a fair ways for me. Amanda do you have any tips for this area in specific?

    I am right there with you, girl! I also just moved to Houston from Phoenix. I’ve been here for about six months and haven’t really met a lot of people, aside from co-workers. It seems like all I ever do is go to work and come home. As you get older, it does seem to get tough making friends/meeting new people. You become more picky because you’ve moved on from the just meet new people for kicks phase to actually making a good connection/forming lasting relationships phase.

    Hi, Amanda! My name is Brandon Cochrane. I am Stillman College graduate as a senior this year. I am having some issue of making new friends. I miss my close friends back in high school. I started to feel disconnected when I graduate from high school. Ive been approach to people at sports clubs or anything else sometimes but it seems like people aren’t just looking for new friends. Do you think it has something do with my social skills or people don’t think of too much of not include person who is single out or is it because people have to trim down their friend s because they are busy?

    Thank you!
