I'm not sure what your financial situation is, but maybe do a trial membership at one of the local gyms. Gradually you will find your niche. There will be lots of discouragement along the way, I'm sure, as there was for me. But just focus on your life, and recognize opportunities where maybe you can come out of your shell a bit.

Do the things that you enjoy and make yourself someone whom others will want to "catch". What do you enjoy?
Street Fairs? Frankly, you aren't going to find many year-olds that have "their lives together" in any city. Most guys don't even get through college by that age. For many, 22 is still the age of beer pong, futon-sleeping, and video games not that any of those are necessarily bad things. If your goal at Age 22 is to meet Mr Right, settle down, get married, and live the next 50 years in blissful love, all before you turn Age 23, you may have a slightly unrealistic goal.

I hate meeting people at bars where they play music to loud to facilitate a sensible conversion. Groups like the New York Gay Men's Chorus draw membership from a range of diverse backgrounds and number around ? It is whether their rehearsal hours fits in yours. There are loads of other groups to consider. Visit KenJohn's homepage! Find More Posts by KenJohn. Nov 7, 10, 4: TrollSlayer Mega Diamond.
I agree with thc. Happenchance meetings are much easier when you do that. A constant search won't do anything but stress yourself out. I've been Happily partnered since I was 20 but I'm just wired that way others on here are happy to not be partnered.

Agree on bars - fun for hanging out, but not the best basis for long term friendships or dating. We are joiners - there is an interest group for everyone. And most importantly, pay attention to what you put into the world - or as Robert said - "spend your time living" - you'll be amazed at what you attract with an open heart and a positive attitude.

Nov 7, 10, 8: Thanks for the thoughtful responses, everyone. Definitely saw some good ideas in there and will look into joining one of these organizations. I also welcome additional suggestions. I didn't mean having "their lives together" as being employed in a certain profession or earning a certain income.
