We moved recently and it hit me after we moved that some of my closest friends were neighbors. We would talk at the playground, while walking down the street and just pop in to say hi. I don't have that in my current neighborhood and we only have one family that has adults near our ages (the other neighbors are all in their upper 50's, into 60's.
I don't really want to join a meetup group. There are 3 women at my work and none have friend potential for various reasons. How else do you meet people?
