Its Saturday night, and I am stuck indoors. This is not necessarily a bad thing. But I used to have a very active social life. Now, because I have no real stable job, I have moved away from friends, and not much money, I find that I have no real social life either. I used to have something on every weekend, but this is the second weekend in a row where I find myself stuck indoors AND hating it. Bored. I would love to go out, chat to people, have a dance, and enjoy some social drinking.
I was all for having a more quiet life. But this level of boredom - where I have not gone out for a couple of months is killing me. The last couple of weekends it has hit me hard. I was supposed to go out with a friend tonight, but she cancelled last minute. And now I am more frustrated because I was really up for a night out. Lots of people have 'going out friends' - I did too, and we would often go to bars, clubs, or have girlie nights in together. But I fell out with one of them when her boyfriend failed to return some money to me, and she backed him up. She then said some really hurtful things to me. I refuse to apologise to her as since then I have realised that she has been self-centred and in large part fuelled the cause of my depression and anxiety issues. I don't really want to see her again. But would like to meet new people.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how I can find some nice people to socialise with?
