Ideas for meeting new people?

I'm looking for ideas for meeting new people as DH and I moved to a new state about 3 weeks ago and we know no one in the area.


I did get myself a job last week (we moved for his job) but I'm the kind of person who likes to keep my business life and personal life semi separate. I may go out to lunch with some of the gals from work or attend a baby shower for one, but I wouldn't become close friends with any of them - I've seen way too many issues with that in the past, especially if you end up their supervisor or something.

I feel the same way you do about work friendships!!!

Classes may be the way for me to go - thanks for the suggestion! I really like trying new things or learning about something I've recently gotten intrested in.


"while I'm not big on having lots of friends, it is nice to have some ladies to go do things with"


I couldn't agree more with this statement, I don't feel the need to be surrounded by a ton of people, I'm actually more of an introvert, but it would be nice to have one or two close friends down here.
