It’s hard to make local friends in this job, and all your work friends live elsewhere. You can try clubs/activities, religious organizations, etc., and sometimes you can find long lost high school/college buddies. But if it gets really bad, relocation is better than loneliness and KPMG has lots of offices

Atlanta here, but went to college nearby. If any of the people looking to meet up in Atlanta would like to come out with me and some of my friends from college, shoot me a message. Always open to hanging out with new people.
