I recently moved to a new city by myself (FI, friends and family are all a few hours away) and I’ll be here for the next year for career reasons.
I feel pretty lonely and I have only been here a month! I’ve joined a gym but that’s it. I need a hobby, or a way to meet people, or something so I don’t go nuts.
So what do you bees do? What are your hobbies/passions/time wasters? What classes do you take? What should I try?

I would walk/drive around the neighborhood to get to know it and I love to cook and bake so I would do that. 🙂 Hope you find something to fill your time! 🙂

I play rugby, go to the gym, and go to book club occasionally.

Also the local community college should offer adult classes like dance and stuff. You should check those out.

Does your city have a good parks and rec department? I’ve met great people taking dance classes through the city and it’s fun and fairly inexpensive!
I also took up knitting (hi, I’m old) and there’s a great knitting shop around here that I can just wander into, sit down, and knit with a group.

try meetup.com. It’s great to meet others and try new things! And volunteering is another great way to meet new people!

I flight instruct. I consider it a hobby, even though I get paid. And, um, that’s it. Not exactly the way to meet people, sorry.

around here there are a ton of scrapbooking clubs? groups?, pottery classes, cake decorating classes, jewelry making classes, white water rafting courses, quilting circles (lol at least I knew that term}. Have you considered martial art classes or yoga? Volunteering works to: senior center, literacy,animal shelters, meals on wheels, and some health departments look for volunteers to run old folks to dr appts. the more you are out of the house the more chance to make friends. : D.
