Hi, I’m currently in the city but have lived in Marietta / Vinings / Cobb county for about 13 years. It can be hard meeting new people in a bigger city like Atlanta.

Depending on where you went to school, are there any local alumni groups you could join? What about any hobbies that you have? Are there any groups/classes related to that?

I will say that I’ve met most of my friends either through work or significant others, so maybe once your husband finds a job, there will be people in your age group there.

we are in marietta east cobb, looking to buy a house sometime soon. i would suggest i dont know many people here either so i signed up on that website and you join groups that interest you and they usually have night outs. the best thing to do though IMO is to go out on a saturday or sunday to the park and walk around, if you h ave animals spark up conversations. i find alot of friendly people that way. if youre into the bar scene i love viriginia highlands and decatur to have a drink. theres tons of things to do. you just have to get out there 🙂 how old are you?

If you have a new puppy, I know there are a couple of dog parks around Marietta and Smyra. That might be a good place to meet other pet owners.

In the kennesaw area there aid a fantastic park that also has a dog park called swift Cantrell. you might be able to meet people there. In Marietta, they have a lot of things that go on in the Marietta square like a farmers market but on friday nights they sometimes have concerts. You might want to check those out.

@spoiledvamp27:  Welcome to the area! That’s where I live too. I’m no good at meeting people either, though.

1–please don’t take you’re puppy near a dog park or pet store until she is fully inoculated.  When she is old enough, that’s a great way to meet people.

2–volunteer somewhere. The Atlanta Humane Society has a lot of volunteers in their 20-30s And a lot of pet-related events.  This is where my human germophobia displaced to pets:)

3–find an activity you both enjoy.  We are in the process of buying a boat and looking forward to dock life, raft-ups, and other activities

4–to have a friend you have to be a friend…invite a group of neighbors over.  Odds are some of them are in the same position.

I know how you feel. We live in Fayette County–great place to raise kids but we don’t have any. Our neighbors are much older.  We both work remotely so no local coworkers.  We are the house on the cul-de-sac so I think one weekend this summer we just might invite the whole street, block it off, roll the grill up there and have a cookout.
