I hardly ever meet new people because I don't like to hangout to the parties or pubs. I prefer to stay at home with my wife watching movies.

Recently, I had met new people at the network, exactly, in the English course free. I made friends with a Mexican, an American, and with a New Zealander. Their names are Esme, Eric, and Elliott.
