I live in quite a small town and honestly the only people I have met/made friends with are our immediate neighbors. Maybe find out where most of the people from there hang out and try to go with your FI and see if you meet anyone. Making friends when your an adult is hard in general but hopefully one day soon you will learn to love your new home.

Are there any meetup.com groups in your area? We have a good many locally and it could be a good way to meet new people with similar interests in your area.

Maybe get a hobby and join a group/club?… I am a homebody and so is my SO, so for me staying at home with my SO and not going out is fine. We specifically bought a big house because we spend so much time in it.

Do you belong to any church?  Even in a huge city I didn’t find it so easy to make friends outside of work.  Then I joined a church and got involved in volunteer activites and have met some really great people.

carmor:  I grew up in a small, eh, you can’t even call it a town. Drivin 30 minutes plus is the norm. That’s just the way it is. Embrace it. Love your car.  Its really not that bad.

I second the meetup group, but since there aren’t any interesting groups, have you thought about starting your own? Do you have any hobbies? Maybe start a book club? Volunteer. It looks like you are getting invovled in church. Join a bowling league? kickball league? Adult sports? I was on a meetup group and I took it over and became an admin because I had ideas n no one else did. I got to meet a lot of cool people(and some weird ones). That’s also how I meet the fiancee. Have you thought about joining an orginization? Are you a professional?

Have you thought about throwing a block party, or if you ar ein the country a party for your neighbors to get together and have fun.


Trust me I know how you feel. I really do. The thing is you have to force yourself to be visible and go out there. Noone is going to show up at your door, well, no one you want showing up at your door.
