My hobbies aren’t social, so they won’t help you lol. 

Cooking classes, art classes, exercise classes, dance classes, book clubs, outdoor sport or activity clubs are all great places to start; you’ll just have to see what seems the best in your area.

I go to a ballroom dance class and a sign language class.  Both are excellent ways to make new friends 🙂

ETA: Oh, and I’ve also met many interesting people in the past by doing volunteer work.  Don’t have time to do that right now unfortunately, but I really enjoyed it when I was doing it.

My husband is at Magic right now. I am sitting at home, watching Supernatural, playing online and reading a book.

I also have very solitary hobbies. 🙁

I know this may sound extreme, but I joined a roller derby league when I moved to a new city.  I immediately made 100+ new friends!  My FH and I moved again about a year ago and I’m considering joining the league out here.  Even if you can’t skate, most leagues are willing to teach you and love people who will volunteer!

For more tamer hobbies, I volunteer for an animal shelter, do subversive cross stitch (cross stitch naughty sayings), and make jewelry.

Mine are not really social though one could be.  I crochet and read.  The crochet you could join a yarn shop membership. I know of one around here that they have nights where they get together to knit and crochet.

@katehh08:  There are clubs called “Stitch N Bitch” which are geeky crafters who do crocheting/knitting at local bookstores or coffee shops.  I joined a group and did my cross stitch, and got quite a few giggles from my handiwork.

You should google Subversive Cross Stitch.  A lot of the projects are cheap to make and can be done over a few nights.
