Relocation and Meeting New People

So you’re relocating and you don’t know anyone where you are moving. That can be scary I know. And I know, you’re an adult and you know how to meet people.

I’d like to give you a few ideas on what you can to to meet people more quickly. And remember, if you relocated to a city where there are a lot of new people coming in, they probably feel like you do and want to meet new people too, so try not to overthink some of my suggestions. I know that Introducing yourself to the people next door, your new neighbors can be a little awkward at first, but it helps you not only get some local insight on your new location, but also might help you make some new friends.

Now that you’ve settled in and unpacked, met your new neighbors and discovered what is around your new home, it’s time to make a new routine. Volunteering at a retirement home or animal shelter, joining a gym, church, book club, or just getting out there and exploring will help you feel like a local and avoid homesickness. If you’ve got children, think about activities that you can enroll them in so that they can get acclimated to their new home and have an easier time in meeting new friends (and so you can meet their parents and make friends yourself). What sports or activities can you enroll them in.
