How do you make non-work friends as an adult?

Okay, how do you make non-work friends as an adult?

Since graduating college, I have made all of my friends through work, which is good but I’m jealous of people who have non-work friends. How did they meet people? Did they talk to strangers? Meet them online first? Get a little too drunk (or maybe just drunk enough) at a bar?

I’ve decided to try the website meetup.com as well as a handful of other more old fashioned ways. I’m thinking about trying the free ukulele classes at the library, maybe trying a book club and trying to convince work friends to introduce me to their other friends.

MeetUp

So far, I’ve signed up for “The Coastal Crew” which describes itself as adventures, a yoga group and a mediation group. My goal is to go to one event from each thing this month and see how it goes.

P.S. I already went to one of the ukulele lessons but had to leave early. I’m now thinking about buying a concert ukulele.
