I usually meet new people at work place, maybe it’s customers, colleagues and so on.
I hope I can meet more new people in other occasions by expanding my life circle, habits and specialties, therefore I will learn more different knowledge and discuss with more new people.

The moment I left my job, I had an opportunity to meet my neighbors and new friends, and recently I hosted a party and invited many people who are living in the neighborhood and we were happy to see each other.

I really rarely meet new people. I’m introverted. I don’t go out much now; so I guess when I went to high school I met more people often.

Since I have moved to Vandhoo, a island in Maldives, I meet new people very often, as I did not know anyone here before.
