Author: Some ideas inside:
Subject: I'm writing from a "young person moving to a new city and trying to make friends" perspective, but maybe some of these ideas could also be applicable for you?

Do you have particular interests and hobbies that lend themselves well to group settings? For instance if you like to run (or if you are interested in starting to run), you could see if your community has a running group/club you could join. If you like to play a sport, maybe there's a casual/recreational league in the city you could join.

Maybe there's a cause that is important to you that has volunteer opportunities? Something with longer term opportunities might be more conducive to meeting the same people regularly and developing friendships than short-term/one-off opportunities.

Meetup.com has all sorts of groups catering to all sorts of interests. I personally have not gone to any Meetup events, but some of my friends have joined hiking groups, sports groups, even knitting groups and enjoyed it.

Best wishes, and good luck!
