Relationships

Find a Friend in Your City

It’s crazy to think that I didn’t have any close friends in Chicago just over a handful of years ago. As luck would have it, I met almost all of my close friends through my blog and The Everygirl. And since my favorite part blogging is being able to help and connect with others, so I’m using my network to help you connect with new friends in your city.

If you’re reading this blog, chances are you might have something in common with another reader in your city. So whether you’re new to a city or stuck in a friendship rut–because we’ve all been there–and want to meet new people, this one’s for you.

Here’s how it works

Leave a comment with your city in caps and a little bit about yourself. Before leaving your comment scroll all the way down to see if someone else has mentioned your city. If so, reply to their comment to keep everyone together. If not, leave a new comment.

Here’s a sample comment

CHICAGO! I’m Danielle and have been living in the city for 7 years. I’m one of the founders of The Everygirl, have 2 rescue dogs, and love interior design and photography. Hoping to make new friends in the city! You can follow me on instagram: @daniellemoss_

If you have time, I’d recommend posting your comment in the comments of this instagram post, too!

Please message me on instagram if you end up meeting someone!

I’ve lived in the Brentwood/Santa Monica area for a few months now with my husband. I love trying new things but some of my favorite activities are yoga, Pilates, training in Krav Maga, anything fashion related (shopping!) and exploring all of the awesomeness LA has to offer. I also never say no to a good glass of wine. Always up for meeting new people! My IG is: @jessicaiwoolridge

  • Brittany

    NEW YORK! Crazy to think I’m the first here to post from the big apple, it’s so hard to meet new people in such a big city. Originally from Ohio, I’ve been here basically 2 years. In Brand Marketing for a large fashion retailer, love baking, books, and (good) booze. Unfortunately I’m dog deprived and considered dog walking just to get my pupper fix. I’m a collector or hobbies, so if you’re into art, paper, crafting, food, running, television, sewing, reading, beauty, trivia, and anything else, we’d get along swimmingly! You can follow me on Instagram at @brittanyltyler!

    • Lindsay Orosco

      NEW YORK! (I can’t believe how long I had to scroll too!) Hey Brittany, I’m Lindsay 🙂 I work in Advertising for a large agency, originally from San Francisco also pup deprived (and I work in an office where dogs aren’t allowed so I’m doubly deprived!) Studied art history in college so love museums and art as well, long to travel, taught myself to embroider, like to cook even though I’m not super at it, Netflix, watch makeup rituals on YouTube, Pilates, BananaSkirt dance classes and drinking wine. All the wines TBH. I’m on IG as lindsayorosco!

      • Lauren

        Hi Brittany and Lindsay! I live in New York as well. I’m an Art Director at a fashion brand- I’ve been here for two years by way of Chicago.

Let’s meet up for coffee/wine/brunch soon.

          • Katethegrr8

            Hi friends!! I’m Kate – a born and raised city kid, but educated in the south so I say y’all. I lived in NC for nearly 6yrs before coming back to NYC and am now living in Brooklyn. I adopted a pup who just turned 3 – Emmy is just the best (she’s a dachshund mix but really only got the length from her mom!). I work at a health & wellness site in sales (work & travel a good amount), am a big yogi, love biking and local craft beers, podcasts, roadtrips, food & wine (duh!), have a membership at MoMA, and am spending as much time outside this summer with Emmy as possible. I’m a former college athlete so I like to keep moving, love sports (Go Red Sox!), trying new things, getting out of my comfort zone, and have never done anything like this before! Feeling like I’m in a bit of a friend rut and all my friends are coupled off/getting married. Would love to connect sometime soon! @KatetheGrr8 is my IG (and my original AIM back in the day) 🙂

Looking forward to attending concerts, going to cute cafes/restaurants, enjoying all the art in museums and navigating a new city. I enjoy cooking and a typical weekend looks like listening to music with friends and maybe a tipsy card game lol. I enjoy going to workout classes particularly spin (best and worst torture ever!!!!) and traveling around really. I’m big into fashion and interior design (anything aesthetically pleasing.) I’m trying to get into photography and just bought a film camera to teach myself the ropes. OK- I’m really writing too much but i’m super interested to meet likeminded friends!!!
