As a freshman in collegeyou had orientation, dorm life and new organizations to — conveniently all filled with other people looking to make new friendsjust like you. After graduating from college, it can get a little trickier. Welcome to the real world. But now what? The bad news is that without your usual crew, you might start to feel lonely, which is normal. And though making new friends can seem scary especially if you're doing it aloneit can also be really fun.
You'll never meet new people if you're just sitting inside all day with Netflix and refuse to leave your apartment. Get yourself some fresh air and attend events that interest you — the more specific the event is to your interests, the more comfortable you'll be to start up a conversation with someone who likely shares that same interest.
You never know who you'll meet until you put yourself out there. After graduation, you probably miss the few real friends from college that you've made. But maybe, your friends have other friends in your area, too. Reach out to see if they can introduce you to them.
Better yet, if you see or hear that they're in your town, hang out and ask if they can have their friend tag along — that's at least one more person that you've just become friends with. A great way to make new friends is by talking to those that are around you, like in the cubicle or apartment next door.
You never know what mutual interests you have with your neighbors or co-workers until you talk to them. Start out by asking them about how they started working there, what made them move to the area or feel free to ask for help with something that you don't understand.

Chances are that if you just moved into a new place with new roommatesyou probably don't know them all that well and vice versa — maybe you met them online or through mutual friends. So hanging out with them outside of your apartment with their friends can't hurt. Not only will you get to meet new people, but you'll also get to know your roommates a little bit better. Back in college, there were days where the counseling center would bring in dogs or cats to pet and play with as a stress reliever.
Just because you're not in college anymore doesn't mean that you can't go pet dogs and cats for stress relief, and one of the best places to do so is at an adoption center. Other animal lovers will probably be doing the same, so start talking them up. Most popular talk shows and game showsor even some sitcoms, do tapings of their shows with a live audience. If you're a die-hard fan of a specific show that has a live audience, get tickets to a taping. Chances are the people that are there all like the same show as you, thus serving as an easy topic to discuss with those sitting around you before the camera starts rolling.
