I just don't know how else I can meet new people if I'm not going to school, and I kind of hate bars and clubs. A random drunk guy bit me on the shoulder at a club once. Like, come on.
So where else could I potentially meet someone?

Oh, I love these marketing questions, so reminiscent of Mad Men. Anyway.
There are 24 hours in a day, and 8 of them are spent sleeping. So, the question is, where do men spend the other 16 hours? 2 of them are "dead" time (meaning, time that's used to transition between other activities, and generally unproductive. So, we're down to 14 hours. Take away 2 hours for travel (to and from work). That's 12 hours so far. Take away 8 hours for work. That's 4 hours remaining. Take away 1 hour for lunch. That's 3 hours.
Okay, let's take a step back.
Why was "school" such a great place for meeting guys? He was right there for 8-10 hours a day. If you caught him, that would give you plenty of time to talk. If you didn't, not the end of the world, he would be there tomorrow anyway. That's also why "work" has become the new "school" of the dating world, only it's "off limits."
Okay, so you're not going to meet a man in his sleep, during his dead time, or during his work, so..
He's got to get "to" and "from" work each day? Right? (Yeah, but it's kind of awkward to just talk to someone in a crowded bus, or train). Oh I'm sorry, then just talk to him during the remaining 40 hours of opportunity he has to talk to you during his day!
He has to "eat," right? Studies show that women are more likely to meet someone at Dunkin' Doughnuts than at Starbucks during lunch time. Why? Nobody is expecting to be chatted up during their quick in and out food/coffee run, whereas at Starbucks, everyone is sort of "expecting" to be chatted up, disappointed if they don't, and on guard and in game-mode if they do. It's not easy pickings, and there may only be 30-60 seconds to find something to talk about, but chances are, frequent occasional bump ins could lead to an exchange of numbers.
What about his other 3 hours? Unlikely. That's his "personal" time where he's "de-stressing." Plus, "where" are you going to find him?0
