Right now, going places and meeting people seems way overblown. (Not that awesome) ...
A couple of things:
1. Church is NOT where I go to meet people. My best friends have, for the most part, NOT been members of any Church that I have ever attended. Once, in 8th grade, my best friend went to the same Lutheran School as I did - but he was Greek Orthodox (and the only Orthodox person that I ever considered a friend).
2. You can worship God just fine on your own at home as long as you punctuate it with regular visits to a parish to receive the Sacraments. I did it for close to 14 years, and in many ways I look back and find that I was a better Christian then. I do not do well with groups of people, particularly not those that think they are religious.
3. If you are going to go to Church for social reasons rather than religious, find a parish of converts. My wife is one of these that has to have social interaction, and she attends the local Antiochian parish. They are for the most part a bunch of nice, friendly, somewhat ex-Protestants and she gets along there just fine. The problem is often not the Church, but WHICH parish you attend. I have yet to find two Orthodox parishes that are exactly alike, not that I have been to all that many.
4. Maybe Orthodoxy is just not for you. No, I am not saying this to be mean. Depending on what it is that you are after, perhaps you picked the wrong place to worship. The Church (the true Church) is a hospital, not a social hall. You are hopefully here to heal your soul and prepare for the next life. In spite of what others may say about us "needing each other", that is pretty much bull. I committed my sins on my own and I will pay for them on my own. For the most part I have found other people just something to sin about more. The exception to this is when I forget about myself and go out and help others. Then I have found those people that I need, because in helping them I save myself. Don't expect to find many opportunities for that in a parish that needs Bingo and bake sales to make the budget. One thing that I have found to be true in my nearly 52 years in this terrestrial prison is that those groups of people who have made it their joy to find those less fortunate and lift them up are usually not the ones in need. God takes care of those who try to keep His commandments and worry less about ritual and vain shows of piety. And yes, some of them are even Orthodox. I have never had much success in finding people that satisfy my wants and needs. I have only found inner peace in loving and helping others.
