    Learning to play guitar, then bass and drums. Joining a band was the icing on the cake!

    Volunteering and most things outdoors (hiking, walking,etc...).

    Check out Meetups.

    This is very individual. What do YOU like?

    Do you get out of the house much, or are you in front of the computer all the time?

    I work on a computer for work, Iíd say Iím less dependent on technology for amusement than my peers (30 years old).

    Iím actually looking for hobbies in connection to personal growth. I feel Iím in a season where Iím not as willing to invest the time into certain things I enjoyed in the past óworking out 5-6 days a week for exampleó curious at what others are interested in and looking for inspiration!

    Volunteer work. For me anyway the personal growth is immeasurable. Not why I did it -meaning I didn't think of it exactly that way but yes. I highly recommend working backstage at a community theater - I know of many who've done that including a really introverted guy I know who lost his wife when they were middle aged and had rarely been to the theater much less worked at one. He's now been volunteering there for a few years and seems to enjoy it!

    I love to explore town or city centers, either alone or with a friend or two. I start early mornings in the local breakfast joint then creep around learning what makes the place and people unique. I try to target places with an event, but sometimes I just strike it cold and stumble upon some gold mines of adventure or artistry or historic pride. I end at the most recommended pub or restaurant.

    Sometimes I take photos of a landmark to paint later. Plenty of places have warranted revisiting for a cause or an event or a fun date with someone I've met there or with someone I'd like to turn onto the place.

    Well, then I think you should seek activities that involve exercise and the outdoors, then you will be able to expand your social circle and be active.

    Have you tried Meetups?
