Outside of work it seems like some adults have no social life. Can someone tell me where and how adults make friends outside of their work place?
There's lots of different ways. Johanna has mentioned a few already.
I would suggest additionally that when looking for activities, try and pick something that is reflective of:
- Your personal interests
- The kinds of people you want to meet
In regards to the first: Say you enjoy literature and reading. Join a book club. Do you enjoy the great outdoors? Join a bushwalking club (this is a thing in Australia maybe not elsewhere.) Some activities will lend better for this than others. For example you might join a gym. Some gyms have a particular focus on both fitness and fostering a social environment for it's members.
Regarding the second: Different places will lead you to meeting different kinds of people. Have a think about particular acitivities, the general age group that will be taking part, and decide with that in mind.
Extra Note: I would urge you to try a few different things outside your normal habitual hobbies and hobbies not common in your workplace. It will increase the chances of meeting people different to yourself and from outside any of your standard work circles.
