It's been 3 months since your first post and you are still saying "going to" - Time you pulled your socks up matey boy! If you drink, beer fest is on this weekend, barriers are broken down when folk are drunk, get yourself down there!

Hi there, may I make a suggestion can you try meetup singapore website? there are plenty of interests groups out there?

I have tried some like badminton etc, and its quite fun. Some actvities are free and some you need to pay :-)

But being a member of any group is free, so you can pick and choose some activities as you like. best of luck!
Salam(peace be with you)

For my suggestion,starting you get to make 1 or 2 friends here.
After a while,you and your friends can join or host activites of your
common interests you guys having.So you won't feel lonely,left out and can make new friends.

I just make 2 guys friend here. Chit chatting always.
Welcome to make friend with me,if you wish.Welcome to pm me.
:D

Hi, its been really trying for me as well, im used to being surrounded by friends and not used to going anywhere alone. I dont have issues talking to strangers, in fact, love making new friends, but its just having to go somewhere alone that i find very difficult. It fells rather alone.

I have though decided to do something about it and venture out to the meet ups posted here next week [im out of town this week]. Its definately going to involve a lot of deep breaths but needs must and all that and im sure we are all in that situation at some point.

Cheer up, maybe you ought to. Who knows, perhaps the solution to the giant obstacle in front of you is actually a tiny step from within you?

You have no one else but yourself to count on in this.

Exactly how I feel!! After 2 months here, I kinda developed skills to eat alone, walk around alone, even drink alone, geez....

It took me a while to feel comfortable going to (and hosting) these events. It's worth it though, as I've met nearly all my present friends and acquaintance via this forum! Some have long left Singapore and I'm still in touch with them.
Admittedly, I've also been to a few meet-ups that weren't so great (those have been in the minority, fortunately). But you have a choice and can leave if it doesn't feel right to you. Why get self-conscious about what they think if you're never going to bump into them again?
So chin-up! Get out and get mingling! You've got nothing to lose (see below). :)

I like your signature... "In order to make an omelette, you have to break a few eggs"...

Honestly, i feel the same... i can't go to any event my own unless there is someone i know there... it look like I need to "break few eggs" :(
