Most people here are generally friendly. You might have to initiate conversations, but most are glad to chime in. Try finding a routine hang out - something that you like doing. The gym, Saturdays at Starbucks, football on Sunday afternoons at BWW or Beefs, the park with kids on some afternoon... Something like that.

It is hard to go most places in the US, and make instantaneous friends in the first 30 seconds after meeting someone. If you don't have friends from work or a routine hang-out, you may be hard-pressed to find someone who will invite you out for fun after a first time introduction. Plus, if you go somewhere you frequent to find friends, you can guarantee they will share your interests.

I mean like what do you like to do? You just have to like do stuff outside to meet people, you know.

Check out Creative Loafing or meetup.com for group activities of things you like to do. There are single groups if you like to go out with other mature adults.

I moved here from the Midwest about six months ago and was in the same spot. I joined a kickball team and it's been a blast. We play every Monday and Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. Then we go out afterward for some adult beverages and food. I'll shoot you a DM with the details. Welcome!

There are a lot of great 20's and 30's groups on meetup.com in this area. I am active every weekend, all weekend and have met many amazing friends this way.

You really need to try out Meetup.com. I've met so many good people through their groups. I could literally be busy every night of the week with friends I've met there. If you have an interest there's a Meetup group that caters to it. Best wishes.
