    What are your "social life" goals for this year? I actually have a lot of them and hope I find the time to do it. I should probably scale back this list by about half, lol.

    Mine are:

    To meet people in my apartment complex and find cool people to work out with and play pool with, since we have those things in our clubhouse and I haven't really been using them.

    To get out more in Bowling Green/Toledo/Detroit and get to know some guys in the area so I feel like I belong here, a lot more. Even if just once in a while.

    To spend a weekend every month in Columbus or Chicago where my friends and family are and enjoy the "big city" as much as I can... bars, baseball games, restaurants, museums, summer festivals. I'd love to get to DC and Montreal and other places too, but this probably isn't the year, realistically.

    To make the effort to message the guys online who interest and intrigue me and see if there's potential to be "real friends" instead of just sitting here and wondering (which is kind of a waste of time, though I find it inspiring to check out profiles of guys who seem to have it together and have good goals in life.)

    I'd like a few more local, politically active friends. Ones who can remind me to attend issue-oriented gatherings. I've joined the Atlanta MoveOn.org chapter so that should help.

    Also I plan to make more time for author readings/discussions.

    I'm fortunate to have a few core friends for the physical, fun stuff---working out, hiking, cycling, going to the lake, etc.

    To meet at least one or two cool gay masculine guys to hang out with... I love all my straight friends, but it'd be nice to know some ppl like me.

    I cycle a lot by myself since going to grad school, but I finish in May and am planning on moving downtown to DC. I used to ride with friends in college and miss it, so I'm going to find people to ride with in DC.

    First of all, identify steps that I can take to make me more appealing to myself and others, with the ultimate goal of being a person I would love to date. As my last few ex's will attest, I am a ways off.

    Expand my circle of (relatively) drama-free gay friends.

    Find workout partner(s) in the St Louis area.

    In order to meet the above two goals, I am making plans to be more active in the gay athletic community in St Louis, as I have finally reached an age (maturity level?) where I learned Mr Right is not going to magically appear, and I've never derived much enjoyment from the club scene.

    Continue fostering current dating possibilities and never shutting a door on good people.

    Lol. Social goals?

    Solitude and quietness for at least 90% of the year.

    Make new friends at school, the gym, or other places where people have similar interests to mine.

    Dump my old friends. Well, actually they're really not even my friends anymore, they're too much drama.

    Go out with my new friends more often.

    Spend more time with some old friends who i do want to keep.

    To meet people in San Diego and begin to build a social circle once I move there. I'd love to meet people who are into fitness and doing new/interesting things outside. It's actually another goal to do one new thing there every week that isn't too expensive; a way to slowly acquaint myself with the city.

    I tend to be agoraphobic, so learning to enjoy leaving the house would be good.

    3. Move out of LA
