my fiance and i just moved to a new state and we dont know anyone. we have been going to town and hanging out trying to meet people but there doesnt seem to be anyone that we would really hang out with. not being judgemental or anything but everyone seems to have like nothing in common with us. im sooo sick of sitting around the house. any ideas on how we can meet people? have you ever been in this situation?

Don't think of having friends immediately. You have just moved in. I am a person with few friends only so if I am in your shoes, I might not be bored. I know that friends will just come in as soon as you can meet one. You can find a friend in due time. You can meet people at work or in church. For the meantime think of doing your hobbies so that you can't get bored.

I was in your situation a year and a half ago when my husband and I moved from the neighbour island to our island. We didn't know anyone here and it took us a while to meet people here, because we both work on the neighbour island and both of our families also live there. So far we haven't found any close friends from our own island, but we have some acquaintances and some of them might become good friends in the future. We live in a semi-detached house. My husband and the man from the neighbour family have built a fence together and they sometimes help eachother and borrow things from eachother. I sometimes talk to the woman as well. We visit a cafe on our island and we met have met some people there, but I wouldn't call them friends at least not yet. We have also met some people at the badminton club.

It was almost 10 years ago when we moved here. I left a very good job, and moved half way around the world. The first few months was really tough. I remember not having anything to do the whole day. I was getting sick of watching morning TV while trying to find a job online. I remember going to a community facility that helped people find jobs. That's where I met a few people that were in the same boat as I am. If you can find something similar there, maybe you should try it.

changing school, the place to live, the job it always mean having to interact with new people. I'll find myself in the same situation as I have to start my master and I'll have new colleagues. my advice...don't bother too much about it. do you have hobbies? like painting, taking photographies etc,,,than go to clubs that reunite people with the same pasion. maybe you'll find new people that are interesting
