Back in uni it was easy meeting new people. There were classes, events, pub nights, or you could just go to student lounges and hangout with whoever was there. Nowadays the only people I socialize with are people from work (I'm not planning on dating any coworkers anytime soon), or friends from uni. All I can really do now is go out to bars and clubs on weekends, and if I do meet somebody while out drinking it just turns into a hookup.
I do plan to visit my uni since I still live nearby and most of my friends are still students anyway, but there's nothing much to do there until September rolls around. For now I need to find other prospects.
