So I am definitely not ready to date again but want to know where and how to find new people to talk to or who share the same interest?
So essentially what this boils down to is how do you adult in your late 30's. I am an okay guy but trying to meet new people my age that share the same interest is difficult at best. Most of the things I'm interested in tend to be the interest of younger people. Not that this is a bad thing, but I would like to find people closer to my age because then we would have more to talk about in general in addition to the shared interest. I do have friends, but the majority are not local and the few that are, are becoming parents for the first time or have younger ones at home. This is where I was 3-12 years ago, but now my kids are old enough to be involved or go to a friends house for a bit.
I know these are very much first world problems, but I'm not sure even where to begin. It would probably help allot if I was not so introverted around people I do not know or enjoyed going out more. I guess what I am really looking for is someone to watch movies and play video games with. But then again it may just be part of the cultural shift away from individual interactions with people in general.
If you have any feedback or suggestions I would be happy to hear them.
