SO AM I!
As you all know, I moved to a new town several months ago. I don’t know anyone! I have been trying to get out more so I can try to meet new people. I’ve stopped at a local shop and got into a great conversation with the owner. I’ve worked with another local shop and had a book signing for my book that was published last month. Had several great conversations with people there. Last night, I did something I never did. While my clothes were drying at the laundromat, (Yes, I know. I have no washer/dryer onsite at my new apartment!) I went over to a local bar/restaurant to have dinner by myself. While I may not have talked much to people around me, it’s about getting out of my comfort zone. I am an introverted extrovert. Make sense? Meeting new people tends to be hard for me. Striking up conversations? Even harder! But, once I know you? Can’t shut me up. Just ask my family and friends!
So, I’m going to ask here, if you’ve moved to a new town, what have you done to meet new people? I love my new town, but, do not relish the idea of not knowing anyone. I of course know my neighbors, but, we are all in different parts of our lives. I’d like to meet people I can just go out and have a drink with. Get together for coffee and a good conversation. My daughter has friends who’s parents seem pretty cool. But, a downside is, I moved to the area recently. Her father is already friends with some of them. Not sure if that could be an awkward gathering? Haven’t been in that situation yet, so, not sure how I would feel about that.
I’d REALLY love to hear what you’ve done to meet new people in your new town. Leave a comment here!
