I don't meet a lot of friends every day, because I'm still student so as a student you know all the other students in your class or your school! Nothing new.

I meet people every day in my job, because I'm working for a huge international company, that have 500 employees, so each day I'm seeing a new employee. This is a great opportunity, to meet new people to have lunch together and share their experiences. Fortunately, they all come from different countries and the culture is different, so every time I meet them, I learn new things from them. It's like visiting each time new places and gaining new experiences.

Actually no, although I would love to talk to them but sometimes I feel shy and don't want to approach them
Honestly, I've never been an open person, so COVID-19 hasn't changed my life much. I enjoy time with my family and my very close friends

i always meet new people because my job need a lot to often interactions to people
Actually, it depends on many facts. I always meet a variety of people in school, in the gym, in the supermall or everywhere I came. But now, I am in self-isolation. So I can't meet people for such a long time.

After my graduation, I started to meet new people once in a blue moon. Most of the time, that happens either in the gym, or when I go on holiday in the airport or even after getting on the plane if I manage to start a conversation with the person sitting next to me...

Sometimes I meet new people online, especially through Facebook and Instagram. They are people who have some friends in common with me or people that work in the same place as me. It is good to meet new people in order to expand your friend circle and maybe start doing something new or different.

It's difficult for me to answer the similar question accurately. Indeed I can meet many new people over a week, but it can happen that I know nobody during a month.

In my case it is difficult to meet new people because I spend a lot of time in my work and there I don´t have the opportunity to join with others only with my mates. Even though I'll like to join with different groups.
I don't meet people frequently because I don't travel a lot. But sometimes at work I meet poeple.

I used to meet with new people last 2 years ago because I was a researcher and conducted to survey with many new people. At the moment, I'm staying at my home due to the global pandemic virus, so I cannot meet people.
I meet new people more often.
