Enofile & Joanie:


Your right about people whom are from here and have connected thru their lifetimes. But neither of ya'll have given the city a chance have you~? There are plenty of social activites here for people that are retired. Did you know we have numerous of dance groups here~?

I hear you. My wife and I moved here from a real city and now we're stuck. I love the actual city here, but the people are still stuck in 1952. If only someone had warned me how backward and socially inept the people here are. If you can get out, then I envy you.

You must be living in the wrong end of town, is all I can say. I've lived here all of my life and I don't feel that way. Please explain.

Anytime I read a post like yours, it brings to mind a line in an old song;

"You been married nine times? Hell maybe it's you".

Let me know if you need an explanation.

I got out of Louisville!

Lived near Frankfort while finishing college in Louisville--I just commuted. Moved to Cincinnati. Now living near San Francisco. Up in the air whether I'll be in SF Bay or Greater L.A. by September.

What is the "real" city? There is 1.3 million people in Louisville metro. You just have not met the right people. Might I ask where you live, and what avenues you have tried?

To the OP, if you're lonely, I'll be your friend; you're special friend...

Default Friends Maybe?

Hello, my name is Erin!

I moved here about 2 years ago do to my family being out of the country and my bf (now my hubby) that lives in southern indiana. I work in louisville (which takes most of my time during the day) and i would love to catch some GIRL time ALONE without my man... and sometimes with! I am the same, i do not really enjoy clubs or bars (ESP ALONE!), but i enjoy just kicking back at home or where ever and relaxing and having a good honest conversation with someone. Please let me know if you are close to the highlands or louisville area. I'm not too shy to meet new friends, it is just tricky, like you said. We do not have kids, and they are not in the plan for a few years. Please let me know if you would like to meet and be potenial friends that would hang out and do random fun stuff together!

Thanks,

Erin

Also, I don't really feel like I fit in with the "single scene" as I don't like bars and clubs that much (especially alone!). I think the combo of working from home, and being well past "college age" is making things even more tricky.

I have tried Meetup.com but so far found it to be dominated by couples or close-knit group. What is the best way to just make some good single friends so I have some people to go out to dinner with, go on trips, etc. It seems like Louisville has a reasonable amount of things to do, but it gets boring doing everything alone.

Thanks!

louisville is a giant high school click. hence the question "where did you go to high school?" people here, for the most part, are comfortable hanging with high school chums and not really interested in new connections. this makes things difficult for some people. I am a very outgoing person and have made many, many great friends here, so it can be done. This town likes to drink, so that unfortunately is your best bet, outside of church. If you are into any particular sports teams several bars have specific fan bases and are a really easy place to meet people with something in common. I am an oakland raider fan and have met lots of cool people from all over the country who became close friends just by watching the game in a sports bar.

Oh, wow, you mean you made an effort? Good for you. Friends, any metro area under 2 million can be hard to meet people if you do not put yourself out there. But even larger metro areas can be that way sometimes too. There are thousands of people from all over the world and the nation in Louisville and every major city over a half a million.

Louisvillians use the high school thing as a way to connect with you. I never took any offense to anyone asking it. The same questions get asked of me in Orlando, probably the 2nd or 3rd fastest growing metro in the country. The same questions happened when I lived in Charlotte, Indianapolis, Austin, Portland, and while staying extended periods in a number of other mid sized cities including Raleigh, Austin, and Sacramento.
