finding friends

inspired by snippy

for some folks, online friends don't fill the same social needs as in-person friends.

for those of you who have had difficulty at times making in-person friends, and have found ways to solve that problem, what worked for you?

Some things that have worked for me are

  • inviting co-workers to a home-made dinner
  • joining and organizing ongoing religious/spiritual groups (in my case, eclectic/women's spirituality/shamanic)
  • participating in and organizing in-person meetings of people I knew from online forums

Things that seem to work for other people that don't usually work for me are

  • parties
  • bars
  • volunteering (I love volunteering, but I haven't usually made friends that way)
  • classes
