Take time to get to know other parts of the city other than where you eat and get your hair done. Trust your decision to move and give yourself time to get used to the new culture and surroundings. Life happens in seasons, and since this may not be the last place you live, enjoy it to the fullest. Continue to build relationships organically while maintaining your values and standards. Also, make sure to keep safety in mind as you meet new people. Follow your instincts while still being open to the new experiences in your city.
