Where are you all meeting people for networking, to make friends, and to meet dates? I feel like most conferences are online and the few social happy hours I went to now have an entry fee and are weird rotating formal sit-downs. Haven't been to an event where I can truly meet people cold in over 1.5 years.

Yeah the people with families are all “oh good I can stay home with family and kids and not ever go anywhere” but that general consensus ignores those of us who are alone, isolated, and have fewer outlets to meet people. (End gripe). Join clubs/teams for sports you enjoy. Go to fundraisers. Do volunteering.
