Hi fellas!

I'm new to AoM and really wish I would have found this site years ago.

Any how I'm 26 and in the Military. Long story short I just broke up with my live in girlfriend of 3 years; and not to get into the sob stories, but I don't know what to do with my new found free time with out thinking about what could have been blah, blah, blah. I work out  and regularly read anyhow (Vince Flynn and Raymond Chandler) so I have that covered.

But other than 'bar scenes', I was hoping I could get a few recommendations of some regular activities I could do to get the ole self esteem up and get out and meet new people and become a better man. Physical or nonphysical, any ideas would be much appreciated. 

Thanks gentlemen!

Haven't started but here might be a good place to start. Day 3,17,20 also 9 if you can handle that.

Looks great, I hadn't seen this yet. I'll be going the whole thing. Thanks Brian!

A good way to meet new people would be going to a meetup in your area, if there are any that interest you.

In my area, there's a walking group, a social film group, a theatre group, a running group, various technology related groups, and many more. If my area's anything to go by, there should be a good range of groups to join, so there should be something there for you in your area. If there isn't, you could always start a group.

Geocaching.......you can do it anywhere you might det to or be stationed at. The only real buy in is a GPS.

College...go to school...go to school.

I would suggests sports like maybe an inter-mural league (Rugby, Hockey, Football, Soccer) or like pick up basketball. You could also consider getting involved in Martial arts aka (BJJ, Judo, Sambo, Kickboxing). Further, maybe take classes like cooking, foreign languages or calligraphy. Good Luck :)

While not in the same boat as you, I was stationed in Germany, fairly fat by army standards, broken and frankly tired of being so. So when I got orders, and was stationed here at Fort Campbell, I found a Rugby club to play with. 

One of the best things about rugby, aside from the additional exercise, is the camaraderie of nearly everyone on the team. Ruggers tend to be willing to give you the shirt right off his back if you need it. It's one of the most violent sports out there, but definitely, in my opinion, one of the most rewarding as well.
