Almost every week in the clubs or partys, or also in social medias, i love meet new people but is kinda difficult to me because i´m a little shy in the beggining.

Well, it depends. At the moment, I think I don't know new people since March because of the pandemic.

I am new in the company so i meet new people everyday. But, I am not often talking with stranger. I like to talk with co-worker about work, and sometimes is sports.
