Okay, a little backstory - I’m a 24 year old guy, just moved into the Chicago suburbs last July. At the moment, I live alone but in about 3 weeks, a friend of mine will be moving in with me.
Anyway, what the hell do people do on weekends? I work full-time during the week, desk job, the usual stuff. But come Friday or Saturday night and here I am, all by myself in my apartment, watching tv or a movie or something. I’m not Mr. Popularity, but I do have friends and it always seems like I can never get a hold of them to make plans, or they’re already busy or something. I don’t have a whole lot of friends mainly because I moved away from all my old friends in my hometown, then moved away from all my college friends (the daily 80 mile round-trip commute was killing me), and just haven’t made a great many friends here.
I usually just don’t know what to do with myself on the weekends anymore. I don’t drink, so going to a bar by myself is usually pretty pointless, not to mention the fact that I’m not really the type to go out to bar and just hang out with random people. Hell, maybe that’s my problem. And, for the record, I don’t think that I’m a particularly dull person - in fact, I’m pretty cool to hang out with most of the time.
So … Any ideas? What do *you[/] do on weekends?
