Moving to a new location can be exciting yet scary at the same time. When you don’t have anyone to lean on, you may be uncertain of how you’ll make new friends in a new environment. 

Here are a few tips on how to meet new people when you don’t know anyone.

Become Involved in Local Activities

One way to meet new people in an area where you know no one is by becoming involved in the local community. Whether you join local groups such as a local yoga studio, book club, or gardening club, this is a great way to find others who are interested in similar activities.

Having a foundational interest among a new acquaintance is a great stepping stone in any new relationship. Also, as you connect more you are likely to find even more interests you share.

Maintain Current Relationships

When moving somewhere new, it’s important that you don’t go from having a bunch of friends to having none. This is why it’s crucial to maintain your relationships at your last residence. Depending on your new location, meeting up may not exactly be possible if you moved across the country. Luckily, there’s a technology for that.

Set up a time to video chat with your friends from your last neighborhood to maintain personal connections that you trust and can talk to about your daily life and new experiences.


Perhaps the reason you have moved to a new location is due to a recent job opportunity you couldn’t pass up. Even if this is not the case, utilizing your job or career interests is a wise way to establish new connections.

Attend networking events to not only get your name out there in your field but also establish new relationships with others who have similar goals or aspirations.

Never Miss an Opportunity

During the process of meeting new people, be sure to jump on any opportunities that present themselves. Whether it is grabbing a cup of coffee with a neighbor or going out to lunch with fellow coworkers, any chance you have to get to know people on a deeper level is important when you’re in a new location.
