My husband and I relocated from Florida six months ago because of his job. We are renting a beautiful home in Diamondhead, however I find it is difficult to meet people here. I find most people (at least on my street) keep to themselves. The few neighbors that venture outside occasionally seems nice enough, but there doesn't seem to be any sense of community. I walk everyday hoping to see signs of life somewhere! Had I realized Diamondhead has no bus service, we would have looked elsewhere. Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can meet people here?

Diamondhead MS is a coastal community near New Orleans.

My best guess is that you are dealing with older people who have moved to the area from various other areas - and that the upscale nature of the residents mitigates against the normal smaller subdivision practice of walks around the neighborhood that result in meeting your neighbors.

Since your neighbors aren't the sort who are going to be "out and about" in the neighborhood so that you can meet them while they are working in the yard, washing their car, etc - you might want to think about community activities as a way to meet people - volunteer work can help.

Good Luck!
