What this goal really means is: take some initative to get out there and meet some different people. I go through life spending time with the same people every day. And while those people are great, it seems like more and more move away, find other friends, get married, have kids, and slowly I am left with fewer and fewer people to spend time with. I would say that I am an out-going person. But I am rarely in situations where I have the opprotunity to meet more people.
Some of the other goals I made on 43 Things will help me accomplish this one: start a bookclub (I am hoping that friends bring new friends and I can meet people that way), create a facebook account (perhaps I will be reintroduced to past friendships that I have let slip and will be able to develop something new), volunteer (everyone knows that’s an excellent way to meet more people) and all my fitness/workout goals (perhaps I can meet people while training for races, or taking new classes at the gym).
When will I be able to cross this goal off of my list? When I have two new people that I can call if my car breaks down. And possibly a new Valentine for next year!
