Nowadays, it is really difficult to tell where I meet my friends due to our busy schedules. Anyway, we usually meet at my place or one of their places.

At school and university I meet my friends (male/female) anywhere in the school and university environment. We usually meet anytime. We meet each other without any discussion before. They find me then we get together. It's up to them. At the office, outside my job as helpdesk years ago, I only meet friends that sit in the same room with me and their friend who come to visit them then go with them if they ask me to go with them. When I still work at the office an old friend ask me to meet in a building (where there are a hypermarket, shops, food courts, restaurants, and fast foods) near my office then she finds me where ever I am there, after we met, we decide where we want to eat. The other old friends visit me in the office as guests without exact times but surely I vacant for them on that time. So, in this lesson I learn to communicate and discuss well to plan a date.
