Moved to SF from Colorado a couple months ago. As a 30F, what advice do you have for dating or making friends in SF?

I would say it's pretty hard to meet people here. Lots of young people live in the marina or north beach, but even if you meet someone randomly, they probably won't follow up with you since they already have their group of friends. Everybody who already has a 'group', isn't really looking for more friends. It can happen, but I think it's easiest to first have roommates, and then you can go out with them and potentially meet others through their mutuals. Good luck

When it's warm-ish out, lots of people hang out in the parks (Golden Gate, Dolores, Tunnel Tops) doing hobbies, sports, hanging out, going to events, etc. You can meet people if you're willing to be a bit outgoing and start a conversation.

My husband repeatedly claims domestic abuse falsely, and it’s getting too much. Now that I have kids he has started saying this to them and they say it back to me. I think he does this because he wants custody of kids or an upper hand when it comes to finances if we end up divorcing. Any ideas on how to handle this

Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?
