This is my first week in Louisville. I'm 30 and next weekend I'm gonna go out drinking by myself. It worked for me in Grand Rapids so I know it'll be fine here.

Well just on this thread alone there's tons of people looking to meet. Then there are groups, newtolou.com, social events, games, churches, festivals, etc

Maybe the people in this thread should all meet up

Looks like most of these people were looking a couple years ago though

There are some really interesting-looking Lousiville groups on meetup.com. Nice thing about that resource is that it allows you to pick a group of people who you know share at least one of your interests, and who are specifically looking to meet other people and be met by them. I think it's a great way to meet new people in a new place.

Hello!
I have lived here all my life and I am in my 40s and trying to get out meet people and hopefully meet someone special. I am a little quite and don’t know how to get myself out of the quite faze. I not a churched goer and not a fan of online dating. I just trying to figure out how to get out of my comfort zone. Any recommendations?

Try Meet-Up, which can connect you with social activities and meetings, not dating. If you read, the library should be able to point you to some good book clubs. Churches host quite a few activities and groups, and not just religious ones. JCTC (community college) has classes, some more vocational or leisure oriented. JCPS has Louisville Learns.

I am moving to Louisville in a couple weeks (and posted some questions on a different thread). I, too, am concerned about making friends. However, I reactivated my somewhat-dormant MeetUp account, joined several Louisville groups, and now have plenty of activities to do upon arrival. I know I may not make immediate close friends, but it seems like a good way to keep busy and see what some options are. I think it seems like Louisville has an active MeetUp membership for a city of its size. I've seen larger cities where it doesn't seem to be used much. I'll report back and let you know how it goes. I'd encourage people to check it out!

EXACTLY. I have been saying this all along. Most the whiners here who complain about Louisville need to look in the mirror more.

It may take a couple years to meet those TRUE deep friends, but then again, didn't it take a couple years in HS or college when you met your first friends? Besides meetup, Louisville is a very active, festive, volunteer oriented city. Little big city if you will. Let us know how it goes, and keep an open mind.

If they ask you where you went to high school, don't take it personal. Say the name....and then say what town you are from and talk to them that way.

I'm not sure why some people are afraid they won't make friends in Louisville with a population of almost 800,000. Yet, I don't see similar concerns expressed very often when moving to lets say a city like Cincinnati for example with a population of 300,000. If you can't make a few friends living among 800,000 people then I'm not sure what to say.
