I hardly ever meet new people, since I don't go out of my home anymore as before and I'd rather stay at home.

There is a pandemic in my country as in the whole world. So I can not go out and unfortunately I can not meet the new people at coronavirus days. We have to stay at home.

I rarely meet new people because I prefer to stay at home, when I don't work, and I'm a little shy.
