I rarely face new people. But when i travel anywhere alone i like to gossip with new people to enjoy the boring time. Basically in that situation, i am used to meet new people.

Sometimes I meet new people online, especially through Facebook and Instagram. They are people who have some friends in common with me or people that work in the same place as me. It is good to meet new people in order to expand your friend circle and maybe start doing something new or different.
