Im in kinda an odd situation, im a senior soon to be graduating with my ugrad and i realize that i dont really have much of a social life. Throughout college iv basically had to ether be working or studying almost all the time to ether pay for school (or get someone else to pay though scholarships) or get decent grades (even though it was mainly work). While this has been great not only for my career (im the lead software engineer at a major research lab) but also schooling (i basically completed my entire undergraduate Computer Science core in a little under 2 years). It has however taken a negative toll on my social life. While i did have a few friends in previous years they have all graduated and moved on.
Over the last year or so iv been trying to basically create a new circle of friends but its been really hard (since most people have their circle locked in already). Iv even started taking mid to high level out of major courses to try and meet people my "age". Iv also tried the whole club thing for the last couple of years but there really hasn't been any that have turned out well (and now with work its almost impossible for me to go to any of them anyway).
While i cant complain too much (since alot of people would kill to be in my position especially coming from the background that i came from) its still a little bothering that basically all i have to do on weekends is pretty much nothing while others are hanging out with people/gf's/ect.
So im kinda wondering if anyone else is in a similar situation where work/class has interfered significantly with their social lives or had friends graduating and killing your social life?
