You could try meetup.com.  I’ve joined some groups on there that are close to my home – have yet to attend any events yet though.

I also do a lot of volunteering – you always meet people that way.

Are there classes you could take? Maybe art or cooking? I live in a rural area so that’s not so much available but I know in bigger cities they are an option.

OR–You could always just sit around a mall like a creeper and stalk people until you find someone who looks like you might get along with and go for it 😉

@Ryansgirl: I second that suggestion.  I had a friend that joined, she loves it.  You can pick and chose what you want to do.  Dinner out, bowling, trips…. so many FUN options! Married couples are in the group, too.  They are often people that have relocated so they are in a new city and want to meet people.  So possibly you can bring your Fiance sometimes, too (if you chose!) and hang out with another couple.

Take a look at it, it’s worth it : )

Good Luck

I wish I knew!  We just moved to a small town and I’m at a loss.  It’s small enough that there just aren’t a lot of activities or groups that I know about.  My only idea so far is, despite not being religious, attending a church.

if you go to http://www.meetup.com, you can usually find a number of social groups that meet with various interests. I belonged to a Board Game meet up group for a couple years, and had started a cooking club meet up group in my hometown, which I understand is still going strong. You might also look into taking some crafting classes at Hobby Lobby or Michaels, or see if the local community class has some fun non-credit classes. I took a class in mexican cooking once, and had a blast with all the people I met there.

I stand corrected!  I was sure Meet Up wouldn’t have anything for me because I live in such a rural area but I found out there’s a girl moving here that looks like we have a good bit in common!  Thanks for the recommendation, ladies!

Is there a professional woman’s association or a young professional group in Louisville? If so, they probably have a once-a-month social you could attend to get a feel for the age/occupations/interests of the group and go forward from there.
