I just moved here to Sacramento about 3 weeks ago and man, it's hard to meet people when you literally don't know anyone in the state. I have a lot of free time on my hands as I don't start work until July.

A little bit about myself:
I'm a 26 yr old guy, Korean, moved out here from Michigan. I'm a social drinker, fun-loving, single and decent-looking.

Anyway, due to impossible boredom, I browsed Yelp, Meetup.com, and Craigslist. I joined a few meetup groups that sounded interesting to me, but they don't meet up for a while. Craigslist is incredibly creepy. Anyone have any good ideas to make some friends in this town? I'd prefer people around my age, and Asians are an additional plus (I dunno, i just feel more comfortable around Asians but they don't have to be). Or if anyone wants to hang out with a cool guy, contact me!

There are Korean churches here, that may not be your thing.
Mid-town Sacramento has all the 20-ish restaurants and clubs.
Most people make friends at work..hard to say..

Meeting people is a problem all over and throughout all age groups. The problem comes from the number of people who limit their interaction online and through texting.

Someone else mentioned the Korean churches thing too - definitely a good idea, I'll look into it. As far as midtown-clubs and bars go, definitely awkward for me to go into one alone.

Just went to the Yard House in Roseville (near the Fountains). Totally happening there! We left around 11 pm, and it was still going strong. Think it opened a few weeks ago, so it's really happening. Also check out Mikuni's (Japanese restaurant), several locations. We know several Korean Churches and have friends in their 20s, 30s that attend. PM me if you want more info on the churches. Good luck!

You could try OkCupid for meeting people outside of dating. It's not just for singles and hookups.

Its tough to be at Mid-Town bars by yourself, the bars are really grouped up.
Meetups are cool for people with similar interests.
One thing you can do by yourself is walk around 2nd Saturday.
You may meet people around that scene.
