Can someone recommend me what business should I start or maybe what hobby to acquire to expand my social circle? I don't want to do it full time, but rather a kind of part-time project. I was always amazed by TV anchors, as they are so good in connecting with people while they have guests in their shows every day. But this is too late for me as I made a career in technology and not going to change it. I was also thinking of opening up a bar or a restaurant where I can meet new people every day and make connections. Also, if this is a bar, I can get free drinks :)

PS It is not actually a life and death situation for me, but rather something that I want to think of in a long run. When you work 9-5 in the office it is kinda boring and sometimes it is hard to meet new people.

Anyway, I appreciate any ideas. Thanks!

I think if you open up a bar or restaurant, it should be because you want to serve people great food and give them an awesome experience, Not because you want to make friends. Friends may be a side effect of having a successful business, but it worries me that you would want to start a business to make friends.

If you did want to expand your social circle, the first thing that comes to my mind is doing something in night life. Maybe even picking up a part time job on the weekends at a restaurant or working as a bartender.

Another good way to make friends is to do things you like to do with other people. I like to go to the gym, so sometimes I'll strike a conversation with people who work at the desk, or the trainers or even the members. Its easy to make friends when you both are doing an activity you like and can relate through.

Hobby : Ballroom / social type of dancing (salsa, tango etc.)

Usually equal number of men and women, and the people are always in good shape.
Not sure why though. Maybe because only beautiful people can join these classes lol

Realtors are always out there shaking hands and adding clumps of 10-20 people per day on facebook.

Provide a B2B service that anyone in your local town would benefit from?

I get to meet and chat with new people around the world on Zoom every week, and meet new people locally for a coffee every month. The best bit is they’re all either business owners or budding business owners, so I love the conversations.
