Hey ladies Im moving to the Nashville/Clarksville area in a month and Im freaking out. Do you all have any suggestions as far as ways to meet people out there? I need a job, and some form of social activity. Ill be moving out there after my wedding and I want to have something going on for myself other than my husband.

Does your husband already live there? I moved across the country with my husband 2 years ago and finding a job was pretty tough. Good luck and welcome to the South!

I don’t live in Tennessee but I did just move across the country with my husband. The nature of his job makes it so we may be moving again in January so I didn’t want to get a job unless I knew we’d be here a while. When we get a second car though (hopefully around the beginning to mid-September) I’m going to volunteer to meet people as well as have something to do so that’s an idea.

Join Meetup groups to find other people with your interests! I made several friends through a Meetup group in Nashville.

I live in Nashville and there are a ton of ways to meet people. There are all kinds of meet up groups and social clubs. Get involved in your local Chamber of Commerce, I know Nashville has a young professionals group and also if you’re around Clarksville there will be A LOT of families there new to the area due to Ft Campbell so check in that area, too. Welcome to Tennessee!

when we moved to TN I met people by volunteering for local charities and book club. I knew I would find like minded people through volunteering and I love to read so it just made sense.
Welcome to TN!

If either of you like to play sports there are a ton of church or city sponsored leagues for softball, kickball, and I’m sure more. Good luck with your move!

I completely understand! I live in Clarksville now actually, my husband got stationed at Ft. Campbell in Jan. 2010 so we’ve been here ever since 🙂 I started school right away, met a few people there and met quite a few people through FRG. There’s always tons of events going on for new people to the area. If you need anything, feel free to ask! Good luck!
