What is a 'social life'? Watch

I ask this as a genuine question as I have not been out socially with people outside my immediate family for about 7 years (since primary school), I have tried to arrange things like the cinema and the like, but that is twice a year at most and only once with someone who wasn't from from primary school. I am honestly confused how people even approach the subject, do they just go 'hello, do you want to hang out outside school/college/work?' Or is there something more? Is it in groups of six or seven, or groups of three or four? Are you invited or does it require a figurative push?

Social life = having social interactions with members of your immediate family, members of your extended family, people in your school/college/university, people in your place of work, people who attend a club/society/event/activity which you also attend...and so on. You usually have to be proactive in terms of arranging to meet up with people, arranging and attending group socials, things like that. You might get invited, but most of the time it seems like you have to put in effort to connect with people around you and start conversations so that you can introduce yourself and form friendships, relationships and acquaintances. People won't always just come to you and invite you out, a lot of the time you have to put yourself out there and ask people to meet up and do things together.

I think it's a mixture of both you putting the effort in and someone else asking you. I don't particularly have a 'social life' either so don't feel too bad
