    Default Meeting People in SD

    Although I have lived in SD for some time, I have not been able to meet any people. My social activities consist of rollerblading in the parks with my dogs... great exercise and always a good story to tell afterwards but, I am sure that there is more to see and do here.

    Looking for ideas - coffee groups, burger night out, movie club, etc.

    When living in a new place I have found that work contacts, esp. any local employees are a very good way to develop your social circle. Not that you would necessarily hang out only with them but they will know about local groups such as photography get togethers or other hobby clubs.

    Another avenue you might pursue is to start your own burger night out, coffee club group. Ask co-workers to see if any of their extended family or friends would be interested.

    (ok that is three posts today - I am exhausted but creeping ever so slowly towards that 500th post)

    Join the PLD! Ha! You can take a course at la Alliance Francaise or in your church, the gym bodyshop or el Naco social club they always have events for young adults and individuals. Soon your phone will be ringing off the hook.

    WHAT ARE YOUR "DEMOGRAPHICS"?????
    YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO "hang" WITH 65 YEAR OLD "SENIORS",OR PEOPLE WITH 4 YOUNG CHILDREN,OR AS IN MY CASE,"both"!

    Love the advice. Thanks. I am in my 40's and am a single woman with no kids. I have found that most of my coworkers are MUCH younger than I, so what they would do is not necessarily what I would do. I have thought about classes in anything and will look into that with more fervor.

    Anyone interested in a burger and beer club?

    Great let's see if we can get more on board for a social meet. Anyone one else interested? Maybe doing a once/twice a month on a Wednesday night would be fun. PM me if anyone else is interested and we can decide from there.

    Maybe he would prefer a"Bangers & Mashed" club?
    Or a "Fish & Chips" club?
    But NOT a "CHIP" from Santiago club,no one would join.
    Why not just set a place,and a time,and see who has an interest,and more important,actually "shows up"!
    "Lunch",at "IKEA" on a Saturday?
    I still want to try those "World Famous",Swedish Meatballs".
