I'm an introvert so I don't like to get to know other people. Moreover, my job rarely has to communicate with new people. That's why I don't have the opportunity to meet them.

No often, but sometimes I like to meet new people. It's so good when you met family and friends.

Really, In the past I knew more people, now with social media, if more difficult, for me... I like to see people and look through to eyes.

I don't frequently go out because I have many things to do in my house besides I'm studying so I have to do my homework on time and my daughter's tasks as well.
