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...
