Full of close minded people. What else did you expect when you moved? Lame reply and not true at all.
Thanks for your contribution And it's always a good idea to meet people that you work with. I decided to join a club at work for career development, it's aimed towards young people just starting their career. I work for a big company, so hopefully I can meet some other people in the same boat as I.
But for now, I mostly just go to happy hours with my team at work, who I already spend hours a week with. Not sure if I'm going to pull any close friends out of my coworkers.

Anyone here had any personal experience with it that went well? I really do enjoy the out doors, but for making new friends, I usually kayak with my buddies and run with a friend or solo, kind of hard to meet people out on the water or trail.
I had no idea history was so GAY!
I do like being outdoors though. I haven't looked at other clubs. There are also First Fridays also art. Try joining the Richmond Road-runners if you like running. Try searching for clubs in Richmond and the surrounding area. It is a very small city, so I understand your culture-shock, and you will likely have to put more effort in here.

I've also heard people talk about people in Richmond having their circle of friends, but I don't buy that from my experience. I've found that when I meet people while doing productive extra-curricular activities, that I meet people very easily. VMFA sounds like a good idea. I love art and music. What other productive extra-curricular stuff can you recommend? Originally Posted by sbhaskarr Its the south dude.
