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 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 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.

The pandemic has changed lives. I meet new people hardly ever. Because I study online and rarely go anywhere.

I often meet new people at my job. When I need to evaluate a platform, I work with the provider (local and external) for 2 or 3 months. We organize proofs of concept for all platforms. I really know a lot of people on these projects. These projects are usually every 6 months.
