    I graduated from Uni 12 months ago and I've ben doing quite a bit of reflecting on my life.

    Since I left home to go to my Uni city, my friendships at home have suffered. I used to have loads of friends at home, and now I'm down to about 3 who I rarely see anyway. There's a couple of others, but they live on the opposite side of the country, as they've stayed in their Uni city.

    I'm also lost contact with my Uni friends. Again, I had about 5 or so close friends, but we don't live anywhere near each other, so only meet up a couple of times a year, and when we do, it doesn't seem the same.

    My job which is keeps me busy, but I don't like I've got much else. I don't have a girlfriend, which I feel that is part of the next stage of growing up. But I don't really meet any new people now.

    I feel that I've lost a lot of friends, my social life has taken a big hit, and I'm feeling pretty lonely. And I feel like I've lost my independence since moving home with my parents.

    Anyone been in a similar position? What do you think I can do to keep busy, meet new people, avoid loneliness and get out of this rut?

    Thanks for reading
