5 Tips on Making New Friends In a New City


Moving on is not easy. It’s easier to stay put in our own communities and towns. However, sometimes, life takes us to different places. And, we need to start all over again.

As hard as it is to do, here are some tips on how to make new friends while living in a new city. I hope it helps!

Get a Gym Membership

When you move to a new community, it may be beneficial to you to join a gym. This may not be the most likely place to meet new friends but sometimes it can’t hurt, especially if you join a class and go there every week. You will notice the same people over and over again. Start to talk to each other. Obviously, you like the same thing and that can help.

Join a Walk/Run Club

You would be amazed at the people you meet through running! These life-minded people can become your lifelong friends!

Attend a religious organization or cultural group

Here you will also find people with the same interests.

Go to Trivia Night at a Local Bar

The more you go, the more likely you will meet new people!

Join Meet-up.com

Here is a great way to meet new people by joining a group where others are also looking to meet new people.

Remember, before you join any of these organizations or clubs, give yourself a pep talk. You got this. People want to know you. They want to learn about you, but you need to make sure that you keep yourself vulnerable and can open up. Don’t let the fear of others prevent you from meeting the right people!
