As you acclimate to your new city, you may find that you have more free time than you used to, but not quite enough time to go out and mingle with the locals.
This is the perfect opportunity to go online and find a website that is dedicated to helping folks in your position meet people for free. The nice thing about these particular sites is that there isn’t any pressure to start dating someone that you might meet.
As long as you are upfront about what you are looking for (a friendship, a romantic relationship, a movie buddy, etc.), you have a good chance of meeting people who are interested in the same thing.
