I'm at uni and lately I have not met many new friends, as if I fell for the trap of settling into our social group. Thats fair enough, I do want to know people better, as oppose to half-knowing a bunch of strangers; those I met in freshers are nowhere in sight - the friend I have is ones I frequently see, and hence end-up spending more time with. I try to tell myself, that meeting friends frequently surely is better than those one never see again. Plus I prefer familar things as oppose to adventure in new things.

Though started to wonder whether it is possible to have both -to balance meeting new friends, and making time for ones I know? If so how do start? I know its never too late.

Cheers.

Really? C'mon man, you're going to a university, I'm sure you know how to figure this out. Hang out with who you want to? I mean...

What?

Yes, you can do both o.O. Just talk to people who seem interesting in your class or society and ask them to grab a cup of coffee for a start! You don't always have to hang out with your group of friends, they'll understand if you decide to see someone else once in a while!

But yes, talking to new people over a cup of coffee is a good place to start! Then, if you have a lot in common, maybe invite them out when you go out with your friends and introduce them to your circle of friends? Or go see a movie or something that is less engaging. Then, they might introduce you to their friends, and there you go! Rinse and repeat
