That's because you're going to the wrong areas.

Beg to differ..I'd recommend out West or down South.
Bostons a cold city. People have their circles.
Living here all my life I've made great friends but I could see it taking a while for a transplant.
Its kinda odd..actually (especially in the winter)

I'm seriously considering moving south and the people and 'culture' down there is definitely a reason.

Stay in Beantown for a few days..maybe a week or longer (if you can afford it) and feel it out!
