Got A Tip?


Just Say "Yes" to Every Invitation


When you move to a new city and are trying to settle in and make new friends, it can be difficult at first. I read a great tip somewhere that said one of the best things you can do is to just say yes to every invitation you get, even if it seems like someone or something you might not be interested in. You’ll boost your social life and maybe make some friends you might not have otherwise.

I moved to a new city about 3 months ago and have had a tough time meeting new people, particularly other women my age so I'm going to take your advice and just say YES!
