I don't really know many people lately, because we are living a pandemic and we must be isolated and I don't use apps to meet people.

I rarely meet new people.

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.

I don't meet new people often but I hope that will be soon with a great meeting.

I didn't go anywhere within the Covid-19 period, so I have no chance to meet new people. Now I more frighten to go out. I don't go anywhere, I don't even go to my work since Feb 8 ... I am trying to improve my English skill these days. If I lose my job, I need to have good English to easily get another job.

I don't meet new people often, but I think I will soon.

In this time, in my country covid's second wave is very dangerous. So I isolated himself in a room. But I active in internet and talk friends. University organize to held online classes. So I take online classes and interact teacher and student.

I don't meet new people often because of the pandemic, actually. I used to meet new people at university, but now I'm having just online classes.

In basically, my country controlled the pandemic for now. So I can go out to work, therefore I can meet new people every day.
