How do you meet new people after uni?

Postby alex42000 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 2:14 pm

Hey everyone! I’ve got an interesting question to ask which I hope you, fellow expats, could help me figure out :D

How do you go around meeting new people and making new friends in London? I never thought it could be a problem for me because I'm a very social person, but ever since I’ve graduated from Uni and most of my friends have left the city, I find this surprisingly difficult.

During my student years, it was simple. I would just get to know a few people at uni and through them I would meet others who eventually became my friends too.

But now it’s no longer so easy. I’ve been considering joining some clubs, or some socializing events if you have something to recommend…? I’ve also tried one or two social apps but these I find quite awkward to use haha... I already spent a few hours chatting to people but none of them seem to find the time/will to meet :(

Any ideas/recommendations?

You can indeed try to join groups such as expats in London (through this forum or other groups on LinkedIn and Social Media for example).
You can also browse the expat blogs in London to see what others are going to.
And you can also try to organise some get-together yourself for example, and advertise :arrow: here :thumbup:

Good luck and see you soon on the forum :wave:
Take a few seconds to upload a :arrow: profile photo: it will be nicer and all your messages will have a much greater visibility 8-)
