One of the guys I met at the Denver User Group pinged me last week for lunch, and I agreed. Today I headed into town and we had a long lunch, almost 90 minutes, while we chatted about business, life, kids, and more.
It’s interesting to get a new perspective and I realize how sheltered Tia and I are in our lives. She’s been thinking of joining a riding group to meet new people and get more social. She’s talks to more people than I do on a regular basis, or at least is friends with more, but it’s relatively few people by the numbers. I have more people I see at Scouts, karate, baseball, but don’t talk to them as much.
I thought I talked to plenty of people, especially through the online networks I have, but I’ve realized that’s not the case. I had the chance to hear new perspectives and learn a bit more about how someone else with a similar age, experiences, etc., has a much different look in life in some ways.
It was a good experience, and I’m glad I had the chance to go.
