San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Austin, and Chicago are a few cities that come to mind where I have traveled and had no problem meeting people. Some of the people I have met, I still keep in touch with. Of course its really how you present yourself as a person and you will of course meet jerks wherever you go. I for example consider my hometown Seattle to be a very hard place to make new friends but I do know people in my area that have had a completely different experience.

You can make friends in every city.

I can safely assure you that there's no particular city where it's easier making friends than the other. Some cities have overall friendlier people than others, but you'll find friendly and fun people everywhere. I always say that you find those kinds of people in the places where you'd least expect them to be.

If you simply live, making friends just happens.

Great thread! I have to say that Buffalo fits this quite well. Real, genuine, down to earth people that creates an area where everyone is your best friend! But, almost anywhere you can make friends pretty easily!

I've never had a problem making friends in any city, and I've visited and lived all over the world. Where I live now (the Fort Worth area) people are as nice as they get. Perfect strangers treat each other with courtesy and respect.

I haven't met alot of people here in Portland but it's probably because im not really looking. I do notice people are way more nicer here than I've experienced elsewhere.

Interesting. I wouldn't have thought Buffalo as I've never been there.

Of all of the places I have lived, Brooklyn...believe it or not. It was the only place where I lived in an apartment building and in an urban environment. There was ample opportunity to encounter your neighbors and other people on the street. I loved it there.

I think Tucson is a great place to meet great friends (as well as interesting ones from all over). I've also met quite a few nice people from San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Omaha, New York, Utah, and New Mexico.
