I'm thinking of moving to London as there is more to do there and more women.
I realise I am a bit down writing this helps me somehow.
Shitty about the friend
I like running however ive hurt my knee bit of a bummer really.
Make sure you go to doctor, runners knee or tears to the meniscus can really set back progress in running/lifting.
You should give that buddy of yours a chance, don't take it personal if people aren't inviting you out, everyone has their own issues just invite people out yourself and be patient until you have too many people to pick from. If you can create a fun time for yourself and include others it just leads to good times, that's all most people want for their free time, just good times.
good luck, it will work out, just keep at it
