6 Ways To Make Grown-Up Friends In A New City

June 12th, 2017

Moving to a new city is hard: new job, new neighborhood, new…friends? It seems to be increasingly difficult to find new friends as you grow older. In college, it was as simple as walking through your dorm hallway. Although you’re no longer sharing a bathroom with 50 potential friends, remember that recent grads can still share common ground as they navigate office life together. We all know that adjusting to a new city and social scene is hard to face on your own. But with these sure-fire strategies, you’ll have more happy hour dates and coffee dates than your phone calendar can handle.

    As someone who moved to a new place recently, I love this post! Have a great book suggestion that really helps with the art of making and developing friendships as an adult by Shasta Nelson called Frientimacy. It’s full of wisdom and a book that I will go back to time and time again.

  2. Great tips. As someone who lives in London, it can definitely be a lonely place if you don’t have many friends!

  3. Great post! I instantly clicked as I am moving abroad for the first time in my life.

    I like the idea of joining an activity club and also the roommate (which I seriously needed ideas on how to search for!)

    Thanks for the tips!


  5. Volunteering can be a great way to make friends. I once volunteered at a radio station and had so much fun and made some great friends
