Trying to make friends in Toronto. I live in downtown Toronto and work remotely. Not sure where to start or go to meet people. Any suggestions ? Does anyone else who’s moved to Toronto and didn’t go to school here or grow up here find it hard to make friends? Asking for a friend 👀

Come to Nathan Philip square for skating at 5pm today, I’ll be the guy with the biggest selfie stick with 360 camera. There’s fitness communities I run and skate with called midnight runners Toronto where.

I think it takes about 2 years to get settled into any new place. Just go to work events, get into your regular routine and meet people at coffee shops or restaurants or meetup or whatever.

What do you like to do? What are you looking for in a friend/friend group? Describe yourself & your interests – it would be helpful to know more of the context before giving the advice.

I love boardgames too
Well forget to mention like OP also here alone (at least OP has a partner lol not sure what to complain here)

Try joining few social group like meetup

Will do, thank you

I've been in Toronto for a long time now. I'm happy to connect!

I am feeling the same way. Moved here for a relationship, said relationship is over and I am all alone.

DM me if you wanna hangout! Nobody should have to go through stuff like that alone especially in a new city

Moved to Toronto 3 years ago. Went to school online and work remotely. Happy to connect !

Take on a hobby and you'll meet people who you'll have something in common with. If you like sports, there's a league called JAM sports, or you can do drop ins through the Javelin app. There are many marital arts schools, dance studios, with great people and a great environment.

You can also try Toastmasters which teaches public speaking and leadership skills - lots of people make friends through Toastmasters.

There's also an app called "couchsurfing" which you could use just to meet with people in Toronto or traveling through Toronto.

Thank you so much for your detailed message, I do like the taking up a new hobby idea, I think I’ll try that and hopefully find like minded people.

I would recommend taking some part time course or join some program to know more people besides regular networking. Feel free to DM me.

I lived in portugal in my teenage years, so no high school buddies. I married young, I was 21.. (too young) Ive lived in and around Toronto since I was 21 now 46. Ive been in a few long term relationships and never really made time for myself to meet others or try new things on my own. Now after a 10yr failed relationship I find myself re-evaluating my life and wanting to try new things and meet new people.
I have a few people in my life but they have kids and are always busy. Next year I will look into taking up sailing. I enjoy Soccer, board games hiking, camping, canoing, traveling.. i would say Im adventurous and willing to try new things. Trying new restaurants, patios. I enjoy conversations about everyday life... not into politics. Im willing to meet up if anyone is interested. Dm me.

Well, I was the one who broke it off. I couldn’t get him to love me the way I needed or even respect me enough. It’s been 6 weeks of not seeing each other. We messaged this week. He doesn’t get it…. His messages show he still doesn’t know what he wants. Yet, if I am totally honest, I hate how part of me wishes he would do a grand gesture/finally decide to be a better man. It’s delusional. It’s crazy how love can be so rosy, sweet & blinding that the red flags seem surmountable.

I’m interviewing 2Ls for a summer associate position at my firm, and today I received a cover letter that was FOUR pages long and went on and on about the kid’s medical history from high school and beyond, dropping in the fact that he lost his mother at a young age, and saying that this was why his grades were low. Mind you, his transcript wasn’t required to be sent so I wouldn’t have known he had bad grades. He didn’t even say anything about the position! It read like a college entrance essay 😵‍💫

I live in Fremont. I really love going for concert/sports event, which usually happens in SF. But every time I need to spend a lot of time trying to convince my hubby to go with me, because he hates the traffic between Fremont and SF especially on event day. And he wouldn't really agree to let me go alone, because he worries about my safety at night.

Any solutions, except for moving to SF..? I'm new in the bay.

We were on the phone when she said her dad mentioned that we “cohabitate a lot” but don’t go out on many dates. I’m a little offended by the criticism, seeing as I don’t feel a dearth of dating/affection. And now I feel like our relationship is under scrutiny. Am I overreacting?
