Hi guys,

So I just moved to DC about three/four months ago and I feel like the social aspect of my life is laaacking! There are a lot of people and events here, but it seems like most interactions aren't too concrete.

What do you guys do for fun? Where do you go? I need some spots to hit up. Thanks!

I'm not in DC....but this is the same challenge for every city.

I'd recommend looking up alumni that were acquaintances in college. Check out ones for young black professionals. Also, ask friends/family if they have people in your city, integrate yourself into their group, and use that as a base of sorts to branch out and meet more people. Church is a great place as well, if you find a good one. Checkout meetups.com, they have events/groups for newbies in town, as well as events by interest.

Good luck!

Try meetup.com its a vast array of different social groups you can join based on your interest.

Look up things to do in dc

We used to have First Friday but I haven't seen any emails about those events in awhile.

How old are you and what do you like to do?

Im from Bowie, Md but I'm in DC 5-6 days out of the week. I hang with friends at sushi spots, hookah bars, lounges, clubs, games, festivals etc. Trillectro just happened in DC two weekends ago and there were tons of people there. Its pretty easy to meet people in my opinion, especially if youre approachable. How old are you though?

Hi there,

Im 24 yrs old and working out in this area. I am connected with alumni associations for both my alma maters, but that hasnt been too fulfilling. The young, black professional events are okay, but can be very cliquey. I  went to one meetup and it was ok, but I can def try more. I'll check out flowinsiders though.

I think meeting people here has been more difficult than anyplace I've ever lived (and I move a lot), might be just the nature of DC.

Oh, and I'm very open to almost anything. I like shopping, music, drinking, social gatherings, etc.

Lmao, thank you, Marcelo that's what I thought. What are you doing here anyway, if you don't mind me asking.

Yeah. DC people can be a tad elitist compared to some other cities and they might be uninterested in meeting new people. At least that's been me and my moms observation. You can come hang with me if you want... I'm kinda boring though. Lol. But I think meet up is your best bet.
