I can't handle this. I thought I would be really brave moving to a city all alone and I'd be having so much adventures. 

Honestly...I feel like I'm so deprived of (non-work) human interaction that it's getting sad. I even uhh...backtracked...As in, I tried calling this guy I was dealing with back in the summer to see if he was around.

This is serious.

How do I make friends in a new town:(

I can't just show up at a club/bar alone...

Join a gym or take fitness classes. Take any class and you'll meet people.

Join something cool , you will probably meet ppl there.

I tried going out by myself and I loved it but I'm very familiar with the city and I had ppl I trusted nearby.
I wouldn't recommend that just yet.

At a club? I can't do that. I would go to open mics and comedy clubs but I just feel so awkward when people are all in big groups. There's this guy at my work who took it upon himself to "take care of me" but he has a gf so I feel kinda weird just slipping out with him every break...looks kinda shady and he's got that "interested" look in his eyes....

I don't know the city so I get lost driving (I have to follow my GPS to the letter) and I'm not familiar with the bus system yet. I'm an easy target because I walk around looking confused. All I know is the way to work and back home...

Maybe I'm just complaining but its just a lonely nightUnhappy

I moved there for work. They gave me 1 week and a half to find a place and move there so it was all last minute. And the guy I had dated was this guy I had met when I visited the city this summer to visit my one friend. I tried calling hiiimmm.. I felt so stoopidddd when he didn't annnssweerrrLOL

What about the girlfriend you can't hang with her??? Is she nice ? How is the guy?
Here in Houston (I lived here all my life but still it's hard to hang out with people) but I went on to living social, and facebook has things for single people in the area.

^my friend moved cross country.  she made friends through her job, and she takes Brazilian class--like the karate thing? she also takes classes on various things. she seems fulfilled. i kinda want her to be miserable so that she can come back to the east coast. on another note--she got in great physical shape when she moves which is great. so i can't hate on her--well i do--she also has waist length curly hair with beliage highlights--bitch.

Mmm...I don't know. The youth I work with have difficulty finding work (we're involved
In violence control and prevention at a non-profit org)

They're in school and broke. Everyone is getting a side hustle. I do believe that working smart is always better than workin hard, and smart people always win. So, it can be done. The malls are always hiring, also.

why thank you, thank you derri, one more question, hopefully you or use2 can chime in on this one.
roughly how much would it cost to live in to per month, assuming i use/ live off of bare minimums,
like rent/food/bus ect, i just need like a ballpark number. I need to figure if its worth moving to now,
 or after uni. 


Posted By: Derri
Date Posted: Nov 21 2012 at 11:26pm
Mmmm, depends on where you move to and what kind of conveniences you want. A one bedroom apartment in a building can be $899 and up, including or not including hydro

You may find a cheaper basement, or other kind of apartment that may or may not include utilities for around 700-800, even in the 600s if lucky.

Cost of living is high but $1900 per month I would say is the minimum. $2000 if you include a small savings plan for yourself, which I reccomend

T Dot is not the easiest place to make friends when you don't know nobody. Took me a while too, living over there for a few years. Everyody in the thread is right, though. The more activities you take up, the more likely you'll run across people you like. I never completely warmed up to the place. There's nothing european about it, it's like a big sprawling american suburb where everybody's in a rat race to make money
