I have to agree with that from my own experience. Everywhere I've lived, it seems like most of the people I have become close with were not native to the area.

Of the places I've lived, I'd say Denver was the easist places to make friends.

Sorry to disagree with you, but if that was the case, DC would be one of the most friendliest cities in the country. If you looked on the DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia forums, you would know what I'm talking about.

Most cities that do not have a car culture and are more urban will be the easiest to make friends. Some Cities that come to mind are:

San Francisco
Chicago
New York City
Washington DC
Philadelphia
Boston

StuckPA should come to this thread. We both agree that Philly is one of the least friendly cities in the country. (lol)

Louisville, KY is NOT an easy place to make friends, that I can promise.

I have met people from Houston that were quite friendly, and that is a "car culture" city like Louisville, also. Go figure. Maybe it's just the Southern hospitality mixed with a wide array of transplants from all over the world trying to "find their way."

Yes, Houston's a very easy city to make friends in. I think it's a Texan/Southern thing, combined with the large number of transplants.
