In episode 20, I talk about how to build a social circle from scratch.
Masculinity for the Intelligent Man. I am David Tian, Ph.D., and this is: Man Up.
Hey, welcome to episode 20. This is a really good question coming from the Facebook group. By the way, this is Man Up in case you can’t read. So this is coming from David in the secret Facebook group. First question – it’s actually three questions. I don’t know if I’m going to answer all of them but I’ll do the first one here: Do you have any recommendations on the best ways to build a social life and social circles from scratch?
The background is that he’s older now and many of his close friends are married or with kids or in serious relationships so they’re not going out and meeting new people – which is already worrisome. It’s not like you get into a relationship and suddenly your whole social life stops. That’s one reason why relationships fail. So David, hey man, you should learn this, what I’m about to tell you because then you’re going to need to coach your buddies later when their relationships fail.
So the question is: Do you have any recommendations on how to build a social life and social circles from scratch? Yes, of course. One more follow-on sentence from him: The best idea I’ve got so far is to join clubs and societies and go do activities that I’m interested in or to try things I might be interested in and then use this as a way of meeting people. I’d love to hear some other ideas, though. Okay, cool.
Quick plug, we have a program coming out at Aura, it’s an online program. It’s going to be about social circles. It’s tentatively called Social Circle Mastery. We are in the process of – we’re in the beta testing of it and at some point it will get launched. It’s already being beta tested in one of the modules for our program called Limitless which you can find – you can sign up for the waiting list so that when it opens you can join. That would be on www.auratransformation.org. There is an entire program on this so I spend six hours walking guys through the most optimal ways to build a social circle from scratch.
