So you’ve just moved in to your new place.  You’ve unpacked everything and you feel very satisfied with yourself.  Congratulations!  Now what?  Well, if you’re new to the area, it can be troubling to meet people outside of work.  The first thing to remember is to branch out!  There is so much to do in Atlanta at any given time, that there will always be new avenues to explore. 

It is important to keep your interests in mind, so that you can meet like-minded people.  If you hate the ballet, don’t go.  Go, instead, to the High Museum of Art.  There is always a new exhibit to be explored; I know the Dali exhibit will be there until January 2011.  Surrounding yourself with people who appreciate things that you do will increase your likelihood to spark a conversation and a friendship. 

The neighborhoods of Atlanta offer styles all their own.  Shopping in Buckhead and Little Five Points are completely different, and the people will reflect this.  Buckhead is the home of Lenox Square and high-end boutiques, whereas Little Five Points thrives on unique local businesses with a little more flavor.  Atlantic Station has great chains like West Elm and IKEA.  Virginia Highlands is a great place to go antiquing on a budget.  There is a little something for everyone.

Then there are the great sports teams of Atlanta that will always attract a crowd and fun.  The Atlanta Braves are winding down their season, but the Falcons are in full swing.  The Thrashers and Hawks will begin again soon, as well as the minor league hockey team the Gwinnett Gladiators.  All of these sports venues feature giveaways and promotions, and are a great way to meet people and get involved. 

Atlanta also boasts tons of organizations that you can get involved in to meet people.  Youngbucks is an organization of young professionals, as is Rotoract and Junior League.  There is also a ton of ways to get involved in the community by volunteering at an Atlanta-based charity like Project Open Hand, Project Connect or at a local church or soup kitchen.  From an abundant and varied nightlife, to a prolific and cultured art scene, to ample ways to volunteer and give back, Atlanta offers a ton of opportunities to meet people and build relationships.
