    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

    P.S please excuse the numerous typos and awful grammar. Can't seem to edit my post for some reason
