Making friends in a new town
    #14993365 - 08/28/11 10:11 PM (9 years, 8 months ago)

I'm 20 and I just moved in with my Dad in a new town in North NJ, about 25 minutes away from my old home.  I didn't have many friends in my old town (because the people here fucking suck) and they're not really the hang-out type unless there's pot involved (which I can't smoke for 2 more weeks, gotta stay clean for a drug test).  Anyway, I want to make friends in my new town, but I'm not really sure how.  Really what I'm looking for is entertainment.  All I do all week is work at a cafe 6am-3pm and then fuck around on my computer until I go to sleep, and then repeat the next day and the next and the next until I can afford a car and go back to school.  Not much to really look forward to, and it's killing me, I'm starting to sink into a depression.  Computerized entertainment isn't doing it for me anymore, I need to get out in the world and DO SHIT.

My problem is I don't know how.

This town is exclusive as fuck, everyone knows each other and I'm not in high school so I'm not meeting anyone my age (nor at the cafe, only old people come in for the most part), and there's no public hangouts that I'm aware of apart from the ice cream place in town.  People don't approach strangers here in Jersey, it just doesn't happen.  At least, not in the context where any friendship would develop.  People usually go out in groups and stick with their own cliques.

Anywho, I want to get out and make friends somehow.  There's nothing around here that I can think of that would be some sort of social gathering in which friendships could develop.  No nightclubs within walking distance (I don't have a car), no raves unless I travel to the city, no nothing.

I've also been considering taking a bus to the city one of these weekends and looking for entertainment but I don't even know where to start, where to go, what to do, how to end up meeting people there, or anything.

ANY and all advice is welcome, but telling me to just introduce myself randomly to people isn't going to work :/

Why won't it work? I've met some really interesting folks while drinking in a bar and randomly talking to them, then again I'm in the west and things are different I guess. Give it shot, not like you can lose a friend you haven't got!


--------------------
I challenge you to challenge yourself more! When you feel complacent and ready to hang it up, challenge yourself to get over it! If you fail, don't look at it as you didn't succeed, look at it as you would a rock face you're trying to climb. Stand back, wayyyy back, and look at it and plot another path. If you can't find one, shuffle down the way a little, a little change of scenery or a view from a different angle may give you the insight you need.

Anything I state is relayed information from a friend of a friend and should be viewed as completely fictitious. I do not partake in any illegal or grey-area-of-the-law activities, but do have lots of friends who may or may not.    -fngbronco

Fuck friends, all you need is drugs, computer, and shroomery. Iv had many friends ad nauseum, eventually I ditched my phone and decided fuckit, all I want is my sweet solitude

Most popular places to meet other people are school and work.

None of that is available here without driving upwards of 10 miles, and I haven't got a car.  Closest rave I could get to is in the city, and if I'm getting fucked up there, I have no idea how I'm getting back home

Starting to get bored of it.  Also, I don't have drug suppliers in the area, and I'm on supervisory treatment so I get drug tested every other month.

I'm struggling to figure out what those choices are, it's looking as if I don't have any but to sit in my room and keep to myself.

Work sounds like the go. Join a local sport team or something. If you want friends you'll do something to find them.
