    So many great tips in this article! My advice would be to ask for someone’s info if you are enjoying talking to them. It might seem forward but it’s how I’ve met some of my closest friends. I really liked the clerk who was helping me at this store. She mentioned she had just moved here so I asked if she wanted to grab dinner. 5 years later, I was the maid of honor at her wedding! I asked the girl I had been chatting with at a book signing if she wanted to hangout and now we are friends. Really just ask as I’ve found that most people want more friends!

    i made my best adult friends by joining a boutique workout barre studio! but the key is to not to go just for the workout and leave. go early and stay late to chat with people in the lobby before and after class!! carve some of that time for socialization. i also echo what was said before about getting contact info! do not be afraid to ask for a friend date!! meet at a bar, go for a drink! my best friend in this whole world who i feel like i’ve known 10 years i’ve only known for 6 months and we joke all the time that i asked her on a friend date and we fell in love and the rest is history! but i’ll be honest, i thought that drink at the bar was so awkward. but it turns out it wasn’t!!!

      Yesss! Thats how I was at Corepower when I lived in Old Town – so much so that I even did teacher training to hang out with the teachers I loved more ? And I think we’re all so afraid that asking for contact info or going on “friend dates” will be awkward, but what if it’s not and you get a new friend out of it? So worth it!

    This past few months I am not going out and meeting with friends since most of them are already married and here I am still single and wants to travel, lol! They’ve been busy with their married life already. So right now, I’ve been looking some ideas on how to meet new friends and I’ve stumbled on your post. Thanks for this! 🙂
