    How do you make friends when you don't know anyone and go out when you are by yourself? Where do you start?

    Go to a bath house, they're great for meeting people and making new friends.

    Talk to EVERYONE. Re work those social skills you used to have. "If you dont use it, you lose it"

    FFS. Do you have access to rags, chloroform and a basement..?


    Try joining a club where you may have a shared interest . Play sports. Maybe volunteer somewhere . If you like religion, what about church ?

    He was waiting for you to initiate things. Missed opportunity. Next time ask him if he likes back rubs or ask which muscles are sore.

    Serious answer: Facebook events, meetups, activity-specific groups
    From there you can find people who can hook you up with more private events
    The most important thing to keep in mind is to attend things that attract people with similar interests and a similar personality as you.

    As you get older you are going to have to be nonjudgemental about what your friends will look and act like. Obviously, have standards and self-respect, but be more open-minded.
