Meet new people in Iowa

When Katie Patel moved to Iowa in spring she was new to the Midwest and out of her comfort zone. Between college, moving and marriage, this wasn't the first time Patel was faced with starting over socially.

I'm a great guy. I have lived here five years! I think people in IA are friendly in their own way, but if you aren't the kind of person who wants those kind of people, you have a problem. Finally I decided to get to know people through a forum where people shared my interests not this oneand I ended up getting to know people who shared my interests, but lived faraway. I personally am not a big fan of CR but it depends on the stage you're at in your life.

No friends in Iowa! Cedar Rapids has people, but I doubt there is much more to the place than I saw this summer. You are no longer lonely, and you learn about a different place from someone who lives there. I've lived in CR and I found it to be fairly conservative in some ways, and quite family-oriented. I have an upbeat happy go luckly personality. It is free and quick.

I have to admit that I've never been to Cedar Rapids. They came for a shoulder to cry on.

If you have a young family or are thinking of starting a family, it has great schools with good sports and fine arts programs, good parks, decent shopping, good job opps, etc. Opacity: Opacity.

I miss people coming over to relax or who need help with something.

Iowa City, Iowa. Location: in the general vicinity of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. People knew my doors were open to everyone That said What is up with it being so hard to make friends here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa? I could never make friends either. I have only lived in towns 8, something or smaller- for the record.

At least to me.

I live in IA, but not Cedar Rapids area- but I'm not from here, and you always feel like you don't have an area last name, haven't known people forever, don't have the right ancestry or the right mentality. Based on data. It is sometimes hard having someone live faraway, when you want to meet them so much, but there are many advantages too. California Dreamin'.

The overall atmosphere of CR is a mixture of professionals and factory workers and there is a fair amount of diversity, depending on which quadrant of town you choose to live in. They came because they knew I not only cared I shared my home, my wisdom and my good fortune.

Before I get any negative comments about how it wouldn't matter where I lived that it would all depend on me I want you all to know that I had dozens of friends and scores of other people who gathered at my home and my business daily.

It becomes interesting because it's funny how much people can have in common, although they live in vastly different places! My home was like Grand Central Station in Florida.

Making friends as an adult can be a challenge

If you are middle aged, it has good restaurants, great local fine arts, good hiking trails, a decent minor league baseball team, etc. If you are young and single and looking for fun things to do and a fabulous night life, it may not be for you. I'm wondering if some of these things are factors. The atmosphere is fairly conservative, though not necessarily politically-speaking.

It certainly isn't because I haven't put in the time and effort to try and meet people. Overall, I think Iowans are fairly guarded when it comes to meeting and hanging out with new people. You are fat or thin, old or young You see I am open to all kinds of people. A group of people who like people for who they are and how they act C'mon Iowa Let's be friends! This city has more fun stuff for small kids to do than my city, in terms of good outdoor play areas, indoor play areas, swiming pools, etc. So shoot me an and let's start getting a group of friends going.

Everyone dropped in and sat around the campfire, came to eat, watch movies, party, relax They came for advice. They came because they felt welcome. And having someone to talk to about things you are mutually interested is fun, even if you can't actually be with them.

Are you single? Also the housing options are varied and affordable, compared to where I live Iowa City. Last edited by ImLooking4friends; at PM. Reason: new thought. If Iowa is truly a friendly place, then all you people who are friendly and could use another good friend I am tired of not having people in my life.

It still has the feel of being a big small town, though. Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Have you made any friends that way? You smoke or you don't. Where are all the people here in Iowa?

I'm an outgoing super friendly guy with a reputation for being kind, smart, wise, possesing a good sense of humor. It only matters to me that you are a good friend. In the small towns, people do care what your last name is, at least in my experience, but since I've never lived in Cedar Rapids or anywhere near I can't speak about that.
