Building Community: 5 Great Ways to Meet Your Neighbors
It's been only a few weeks since I made the big move south to Atlanta and meeting new people and making friends with the neighbors is very high on my list of things to do. I've just moved from a city I love, where I had a circle of friends who lived within 5 blocks, so to put it bluntly, I'm having a difficult time adjusting.
I'm struggling with making new friends and meeting my neighbors. I don't know whether it's the fact that I'm a Northern transplant who doesn't drink all that much Coca Cola, or if it's just harder to make friends here when you're in your thirties without kids... but meeting the neighbors and making new friends is becoming quite the herculean task. I have had a few small successes, though, and here's what's worked for me so far. If you've also faced a similar situation, I'd love to read in the comments about what's worked for you!
