It can be challenging meeting new people on your own. Before I moved to Spain I hesitated to go somewhere alone. ¨What will they think¨ I always thought. But you know what? No one actually cares what you´re doing because they are so wrapped up in their own thoughts. It definitely took me a while to figure this one out but moving almost half way across the globe by yourself being forced to meet new people because you´re alone helps out with this.
When I moved back home I made the sudden realization that people are busy. A lot of my friends are either married, have significant others, children, or a demanding job and don´t always have time to do anything or are with the people in their own lives. So, it is up to you to go out and find other young single professionals to talk about your desired career path, how it is seemingly impossible to find a date in this cold state, or say try a new gym.
