For working adults, making new friends can be tough. Many of us built our networks organically over time: we met people at school or work, through shared activities, and through friends of friends. We didn’t have to put much effort into collecting contacts. In a new city, though, we have to be intentional about it. I’ve read in one article about How To Make New Friends When You Move To A New City which I think it will give you an idea how to do it.
I am really impressed by your blog. Your blog article is very informative and helpful. Thank you for sharing this helpful information!
I am a Senior who still works Full Time from Home. I am moving across the State to a new Community. I thought your Article was Great but It really doesn’t take into Account our Current Corona Challenges. But I really liked your thoughts!

OK…that was a bit dramatic…I will just die Alone! lol

I love this article. When I moved to NY I had no clue where to start to make friends and using apps definitely helped. Two of my favourites that aren’t on the list are BumbleBFF (meeting friends) and OneRoof (meeting your neighbours) – these apps helped me meet the majority of my friends in NYC.
I disagree that you’ll meet people walking a dog, riding a bike, or going to a museum. I have NEVER meet a new person that way. You have to join a group or take a class – some activity where you’re actually doing things with other people.
5. Be a good neighbor
Look specifically for events out in the open, such as live concerts, music festivals, or art festivals. Keep in mind that festivals are great for meeting new people and making friends in an unknown place simply because 1) they are remarkably communal, 2) they are centered around having fun, and 3) they often include group activities.
Flag football, baseball, basketball, volleyball, tennis, golf – the list goes on and on. Many amateur sports leagues organize monthly or bi-monthly tournaments – the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded people and befriend them (for life).
For example, if you love animals, then you should consider becoming a volunteer gay hookup sites at an animal shelter in the new town or city.
