A lot of my old friends are still working dead-end jobs, in relationships, use drugs, let themselves go physically, are socially awkward, etc. and I've simply grown past them. I want to upgrade my friends to young, single, fit professionals that are good with women. It's been a while since I've tried to make new friends though and I don't know where to meet people or where to begin. How can I go about gently "breaking up" with my old friends? Where can I meet new people?
