I guess a little background about myself. I'm 22, graduated from college in May '09 and I got a good job that is 8 hours away from my home town. My current hobbies are shooting, autocrossing, miniature games, sailing, golfing, and working out. So to put it simple, I don't know very many people here. Back home I have an army of friends, but that does not do me any good where I am now... I have to say work takes up most of my life, my hours seem to range from 40-50 hours a week. So far I am the youngest person in my office at age 22, I believe the next youngest person is in their early 30's. Plenty of nice people, but obviously their family comes first, so no one is ever up for a beer or grabbing dinner as a group. I figured I would meet people through my hobbies, but it just seems they all become acquaintances and all they are interested in is that hobby. I also have very male heavy hobbies I have noticed, so I realize the chance of me meeting a girl is slim, but even finding a group of guys to hangout with is proving to be hard. I have tried hitting the bars, but from my experience I only really find "friends" and "flings" for the night. If I do start dating a girl I met at a bar, it never really gets far. So I guess does anyone have suggestions on where to meet new friends or dating worthy girls? I am always up for new things and ideas. Just with work and the gym, my weekdays are tight, but my weekends are fairly wide open.
