How Can I Make Single Friends?

"How Do I Make Single Friends?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

So, I'm at a place in my life where almost all of my friends are married. (To be honest, I'm a little sad I'm not there yet, but I've had some great life experiences, taken some risks, and I'm proud of my accomplishments.)

Anyways, my main question is how to make more friends — single ones, I guess. I love my friends dearly, but the fact is, once people get married it's hard to hang out as much. I make plans with them in advance, but sometimes I want to do more spontaneous things, too — I love learning and trying new things.

This is maybe a bit sad to say, but as an introvert I've never been good at planning a social life, so to speak. I work hard, and I do enjoy/need quiet time on my own . . . just not all the time. I have started a few hobbies, for my own enjoyment and to meet people, but I have to watch myself or I'll still just be acting introverted around new people, which doesn't accomplish my goal.

I've heard people on this site mention websites like meetup.com. Are there any other such sites? And is it a safe way to meet people? Any other tips?
