Honestly, I don't get to meet new people very often. Maybe once every few months or so. However, I do occasionally attend social events and gatherings with friends, especially during holidays and special occasions, where I may get the chance to meet new people that my friends bring along.

I don't meet new people frequently. Since I work in my laptop almost 10-12 hours a day. Without this time I used to do my other regular activities like having foods, doing meditation, playing guitar & spend sometimes with my family. All these are included in my daily activities. Every weekend I go outside along with my wife for shopping and doing hangout with her. So, there is no way to meet with new people in my life. I always end up with meeting same people again & again. Possibly, I meet new people once in a year or so...

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.
