How do you make new friends in a new city when you do not know anyone?
Just trying not be sitting alone on a Saturday night!
look at meetup.com. You can search for groups of people who get together to do things that you enjoy. If they don't have a group, start your own. This way you can get to know people who share your interests instead of random people at bars or clubs.
hook into one of the dating sites and create a dvd evening just to meet new friends.. depending on what country you are in dating sites accomodate an option for making friends as well.
here we hold events all the time.
there's lots of ways.
go to a cafe at lunchtime midweek.. ask somone sitting at the table next to you if there are any social events where you can meet people as you are new to the city and do not know anyone. they will more than oblige some information, an ya never know, they may invite you out with some friends. make it clear wether you are only looking to meet knew friends or if you are looking to meet 'someone' as this can depict wether you get mised with the right crowds.
i moved to the city i'm in many years ago, i knew 3 people back then and did what i suggested above, now i know hundreds. many of which have become great friends, the rest.. are still aquaintances yet we catch up now an then for a few drinks and.. at the moment, i always sit home on a saterday night.. none of my friends act like they're in their early 40's haha most of them are like theyre 80 haha
but not this kid lol
The easiest way is to find people who enjoy the same things by frequenting a place where a particular activity you greatly enjoy takes place.For instance,if I moved to a new town,I would find the first pool hall around as I am an avid pool player. I can put some quarters up for next game or jump into a ring game for gambling and conversation starts itself because we are all doing what we so obviously enjoy. Next thing you know you have too many friends and you are asking a question on hubpages wondering how to politely get rid of some of them!
Join a social group, like a church group fitting for your age or a fitness group. Attend different functions, like a tailgate party or look up events hosted in your city. Meeting your neighbors also a good way to make new friends. Frequent coffee shop or parks and ask if you can join in a friendly game of chest or volleyball, or whatever the activities is currently being played. From these options you'll bound to meet someone with a common interest and from there network out. Meet one friend, introduced to another, and another to another, and soon you'll have so many that your next problem will be how do I make time for all my friends.
