That’s always a tough question because the answer is never easy.I moved to Montreal a few years ago and I had no friends here so I met those I have at school.If you’re a student, this is always the easiest way because it’s more natural.
Often, co-workers will always only be viewed as co-workers, but school is a natural place to try and make friends.At some points you just have to go for it: if you’re in class and you hear someone talk about a subject that you love, just jump on the occasion.If it’s something that you’ve always been curious about, just try and ask questions about it: “Hey, sorry!
Did you just say xxx?Cause I’ve been wondering about that for ages!Is it true that xxx?” Some people may be a bit reticent to indulge you, but a useful tip to keep conversations going is to keep asking people about themselves.
People love to talk about themselves.If you manage to realistically lead the conversation to that, you’ve already got the ball going.If you’re not a student and you want to make friends with the same interests as you, why not try to join classes on stuff that you like?
Learn a new language, a craft, join a yoga or zumba class, martials arts, anything that might interest you!Just don’t be afraid to talk to people, and try to do so in a natural way.If you’ve got certain talents or just want to help, you might also want to volunteer!
There’s so many areas in which you could help.Montreal is a truly active city.And hey, if you’re into geeky stuff, try to find geeky groups on facebook and stuff and ask if you could come to their next meeting.
Same if you’re lgbt or more of an activist.
It depends on who you want to meet as well and your age range, but I’d say the best way is join a community intramural league like Badminton, Basketball, and the like.They usually have all sorts of age ranges so it’d be a great way to start.Another is to take a course in your favorite hobby with the City or one of the many high schools and colleges for the public.
You’d already have a point of reference (shared hobbies) and then the rest can follow.I’d also recommend going to the cafes in your area and take a look at the neighborhood bulletin board.
Join one or several of the over 700 Meetups in Montreal.
