3.Take a class – No matter what subject, taking a class at local junior college or education center will help you meet people. Pick something fun, like a cooking class, or something that’ll really boost your earnings, like a real estate investing class.
4.Say Yes – Without even realizing it, you’re probably turning down opportunities to meet new people every day. So, next time your co-worker mentions that networking meeting she goes to every Wednesday, or your boss suggests a happy hour after work, say Yes. The more people you’re exposed to, more likely you are to meet people who share your interests.
5.Join a social club – In nearly every city, there are clubs to help people meet each other. Sometimes they’re called Newcomers Clubs, other times simply Social Clubs. Regardless, joining such a club will give you access to unlimited potential friends – and will generally help you get to know your new city better, too! This is a fail-proof way to meet people, because everyone else wants to meet new people too.
