Got out of college, got a job....lost from here on out

So I got out of Tech and I found a job at a small company. My office has about 8-10 people in any given day (1 telecommutes and occasionally comes to the office and 1 is a freelance part time guy). And with the exception of the telecommuter, everybody in my office is middle aged and married. My roommate is a bartender and works insane hours so I barely see him around. And on his days off, he's usually at his girlfriend's place.

I still have quite a few of my friends from college and high school nearby, but I really want to meet new people and make new friends (and find a girlfriend as well). Where can I go?

Go do something you like to do and find people there?

Example being if you liked video games you could go to an arcade, where other people who like arcade games gather and play games.

Yeah it's a weird feeling. So far your life has been structured and pretty much planned out. Now you are pretty much in complete control and life is what you make of it. I would get out there and meet people. Go to happy hours after work. Start going to the gym. I know a lot of people who work like hell just for the weekend. So start planning those weekends. Now that you have money from your job, that should open up new doors as well. Go on vacation. Go to Vegas or something.

This is a good idea. I've met a ton of people though a random beer league hockey team I joined with a range of ages, for example.

Something to do with your time that you enjoy. I used to feel empty when I didn't have a friend to hang out with, now I find I have zero extra time in life. Clean shit up, workout, worry about yourself above and beyond anyone else. Lastly, find a hobby and hopefully meet people through it. When all else fails, the internet can fill a small void.

how was your experience at Georgia Tech by the way? Would you recommend it over other comparable engineering schools?

If you live in Georgia, it's the best public university to go to. If you don't, I'd go to a school with more girls. Because Tech has none of them.

yeah, um, really concerned that the recommendations (sp?) on this forum were "internet, church, coffee shop"... really? are you kidding me? go to a bar, go to happy hour, go OUTSIDE of your comfort zone. don't go to anyplace that gives you an excuse to be a recluse (i.e. movie theaters, or other social events where it's acceptable/required of you to be quiet)

Happy hour man! Go spend some of that hard earned engineering cash by buying a pretty lady a drink she has never heard of. Happy hours are like a mecca for young professionals looking to do exactly what you stated in this thread everyone wants to meet new people that also have careers and to meet an attractive mate.

I am in your shoes. Graduated in may, this is my fourth week working as an EE what degree did you get at Tech?

A very close friend of mine went to Tech from out of state (who also just graduated) and this is pretty much how he described it. If you are looking to get involved with serious intellectual pursuits go for it. If you are looking to get the "college experience" stay the FUCK away. Tech broke his back with ridiculous, there are not many attractive girls by a long shot and any 'decent' ones that are there have "tech bitch syndrome." They think they are 10s because they are the only 6s around so will be pure bitches to any guys to make up for the attention they lacked being out shined their whole life

we both graduated with engineering schools. He had close to 4 times the weekly work load then I did, leaving him less time to explore college and more pressure to cram. I have practically zero debt and he has a sports car equivalent loan to pay off. We both make the same amount of money out of school.

I'd say if you are a 100% book worm go to a school like tech if interested. If you like to have fun and meet friends + members of the opposite sex, find a state public school with a good engineering reputation, but do not let yourself get too sucked into the social life that your grades suffer as you will find the majority of your friends will most likely NOT be engineering majors. I also find that it is farrrrr much easier to "out shine" your peers in a state school receive recognition (ie distingishing yourself from your peers and get fat job offers) while still having a great time (tucker max) then at a school like tech.

If you are the next Edison or Tesla, go to a school like Tech.
If you want to have work and play go to one of the better instate engineering schools and keep your costs down. It doesn't matter what school you go to, if you work hard and do things to secure your future you will get noticed.

Hope this helps anyone is this thread that is going after a technical degree. Feel free to pm me if you have any questions.

yeah go to happy hour for sure or head over the craiglist and find something in your area that you are interested in like a weekly dodgeball league or even try something new, like take dancing lessons.
