  • I joined CM for the that reason (except I haven't moved) lol. Pay attention to the users who post to your questions- maybe you will stumble across someone in your area. ;-)

  • Church, grocery store, WalMart, check Craigslist for groups in your area

  • yes, just start talking to people. everywhere.
    talk to the bank tellers, the checkout people, the pizza guy, staff at the dentist office, everyone.
    if you go to church, meet and greet everyone
    if your kids are into sports get them into some groups or clubs, or teams sports
    The best way I have found to make friends quickly with women in a new town is to remove the word " I " from my vocabulary.
    Instead of saying " I love that sweater" say " you look great in that sweater" and sometimes just a quick touch on the shoulder or a pat on the back also helps.
    People want people to like them, and when they feel that you genuinely like them, it's easy from the get go.
