It's interesting, that phenomenon called fate.
I recently changed fitness centers. I wanted one that had a little more activity and more options. Yesterday was my first day. People there seemed real friendly. It was a very welcoming change of environment for me.
At the place I previously worked out I seldom saw anyone at the time of day I visited except for the person at the check-in desk or an occasional trainer or physical therapist. It was a nice facility. But, after three years, it became obvious that I needed more social contact with people in my life in addition to my physical workout.
