I moved to a small city (Cincinnati) with a small town mentality, so everyone here already has their set of friends and family that they grew up with, and like you said, it’s really hard to break into. I’m fortunate in that I have a boyfriend and a dog so our family provides companionship — and I also really like my coworkers, but we don’t hang outside of work — so I’d still like a few “regular” friends. To be honest, a lot of non-Cincinnati-born people in their 20s/30s move away from Cincinnati for this reason. I don’t have that option (boyfriend is here for work) but I haven’t given up hope. I think it is never too late to make real life friends. And in the meantime, internet friends are pretty wonderful.
