What's the Right Environment to Meet People?



Earth is a beautiful place to live with a ton of things to do, yet this doesn't mean it's an easy place to meet new people and make meaningful connections. Most everyone would agree that it would be nice to have some like-minded friends or a romantic partner to enjoy the world with, yet finding the right people to do this can be a challenge. In an effort to help, let's ask and answer the question: what's the right environment to meet people?

Challenges of Making Meaningful Connections


There are many different types of people living in the world, and especially in multicultural cities in America; this can make it difficult to meet the right type of people to be friends with.

Basically, making friends randomly with just anyone can be a negative experience, which is why it's important to meet people that share similar views, personalities, and circumstances. This doesn't mean meeting a carbon copy of oneself, yet meeting people that can relate to you is essential.

Despite what may be portrayed through cultural lenses, not everyone is perfectly at ease with the crowd, able to always have the right things to say and be the life of the party. In fact, the opposite is true with most people, especially young professional adults trying to find their way in a new city. This is why environments with drugs and alcohol typically aren't good environments to make meaningful connections.

Responsible and thoughtful adults should avoid involving alcohol in making meaningful connections. This is why environments like bars and concert halls are, usually, not the best places to get to know new people and make meaningful connections.

Work may be a good place to make meaningful connections, yet it can also pose problems if relationships go sour; also, meeting people at work is limited and doesn't expand a person's life outside of work.

A person could just walk around and visit places that interest them, hoping to randomly meet people and make meaningful connections, yet it's hard to randomly meet people that are in similar circumstances. Being at places of shared interest does help increase the odds of meeting someone like-minded, yet it's difficult to randomly start conversations, even when accompanied by a friend.

These are some of the challenges young and old people may have with making meaningful connections in large and small cities.

Conducive Environments for Making Meaningful Connections


Younger and older adults still want to have fun while meeting new people, so what's needed is a conducive environment for having fun and making meaningful connections. This means a comfortable and fun environment where people can get to know each other while focusing on a positive activity.

Also, a conducive environment would be a place where people are primarily there to make meaningful connections as well. The focus would be on something fun, positive, and universally appealing to the people there.

The activity or focus should allow the participants or patrons to converse and be themselves. Places like this could be a:
  • book review club 
  • hobby club 
  • art workshop 
  • spiritual study group 
  • board game night meeting place 
  • art group 
  • bowling/sports league 
These types of clubs and activities may be harder to locate than the typical bar, yet these are the types of places where meaningful connections are easier to make for the average adult.

The right environment for meeting people and making meaningful connections depends on the type of interests they have, yet by avoiding bars and "exciting hot spots" in favor of low-key, less popular environments, they'll have a better chance of making sincere friends and truly enjoying their lives.

Making Substack the Center of a Writing System

Focusing Distractions with Complexity With all of the options writers and content creators have now, finding the right one for each system sometimes takes experimentation. Flops and failures often come with such brimming efforts of zeal, yet the glimmer of hope remains in pictures of automated simplicity. In the beginning, things were simple; then came the expansion, the maintenance, building, creating, researching, and other such effort and time into what can only be called a writing system. Organizing this complex miasma of disparate platforms, the writer (insert content creator as needed) has become a blogger, marketer, promotor, maintenance tech, and organizing master. The actual writing is pushed to the side. Finding Balance Each writer organizes their system differently according to their needs and abilities. I’ve always admired someone who focuses on one platform and doesn’t get stretched too thin. We can get distracted by constantly expanding and trying new things. What’s neede

Views are Like Customers to Writers

Writing online entails considering how many impressions, views, visitors/reads, comments, shares, and reactions each article gets. These digital assets symbolize the money made from each article. How many views did that article get — that poem, story, blog post, picture, art piece? The number will determine how much money the article made. While most writers appreciate even one single read, this doesn’t pay much. On the high end, this might bring .02 cents. Usually, around half a cent, or $5 RMP. Different Writing Platforms and Efforts At Medium views don’t turn into a specific amount of money, rather they are merely an indication of possible money — reads are more important at Medium, as they correlate closely with any money made. Each read at Medium this month made me around that .02 cent mark! The reads at Medium might not be from members, so may not make us money. Still, on average, both views and reads equal a certain estimated amount for each Medium writer. At Vocal, they make it

Why I Stopped Listening to Mainstream Worldly Music

Being the son of two musicians, music plays an important role in my life. I became a musician as well, although not to the level they were. Parents would play on the weekends at evening hotspots in Bend, OR in the early and mid-80s. They would play cover songs from the 70s and 80s, maybe an original here and there. They went on to have respectable careers in music until this day. Here is my mom’s music website: Maxie Kinney Music The Music Journey of a Country Gal from Oregon I started playing the guitar around 21 years old. I played the keyboard and piano when I was younger. Here is my music website in progress: Robbie Newport Music Original Christian Folk Music Storytime I remember a time when I was around 11 years old in a music shop (in the late 80s and early 90s there were mostly cassette tapes for sale) and I had the choice between Bachman Turner Overdrive (BTO) or New Kids on the Block — I chose BTO and have always been proud of that decision. I have good taste for genuine music
