If you're brand new to a city, how would you make attempts to meet new people?

I AM brand new to a city, and I'm making no attempts to meet people haha. But I think eventually normal people would make friends through work, activities, etc. Maybe when I get a job this will happen for me. & meetup.com has a ton of groups in my area including a new in town drink night.

We're in the same boat! I'm also hoping to find a new job soon so that I can hopefully befriend some coworkers.
Which new city do you call home now?

I would try to get involved in something I enjoy as a group. Like going to the local yoga hut, joint a running group or a gym. When I moved to phoenix I found joining a running group really help me meet new people and overall changed my outlook on life. It's amazing what you can learn about yourself when you surround yourself around strong women.

I'd probably mainly make some friends (or at least acquaintances) through my job, and then move on from there. I only know how to make friends with people through school or work. If I was in a new city I would spend a lot of time exploring, so I'd probably find someone there; I'd check out all the bookstores, libraries, movie theaters, etc. I would also, probably, keep an eye out for community things, like the farmer's market or festivals of some kind or gatherings related to my interests.

I would join the Y, go to yoga classes, etc. For me, since I'm a musician, I'd be seeking an orchestra to play in as well.

join classes, pursue hobbies, interest groups, etc, take your dog to dog parks (if you own one), join a reading group, go to a bar, do things that locals do socially, any sort of thing that involves other people.

I wouldn't. I don't really like "forced socializing" (i.e. going out just to meet people), and I'd just go about my life as normal. Either I meet new people, or I don't.

I would join the orchestras and choirs.
