Find a Friend In Your City: January 2018

Back in 2010, I moved from Los Angeles to Chicago and didn’t know anyone here. And my blog was the best resource for meeting new people. In the spring, summer, and fall of 2017, I wrote posts like this one to use my blog to help you connect with women in your city. I’ve learned that you never know when saying hi to a neighbor, sitting down next to someone at a coffee shop, or messaging a complete stranger through a blog (or Facebook, because I’ve done that too) will result in in a friendship that will change your life. If you’re reading this blog, chances are you have something in common with another reader in your city. So whether you’re new to a city or stuck in a friendship rut (we’ve all been there) and want to meet new people, this one’s for you.


Leave a comment with your city IN CAPS and share a little bit about yourself.

Before leaving your comment scroll all the way down to see if someone else has mentioned your city.

If you see your city, reply to their comment to keep everyone together. If you don’t see your city, start a new comment.

I also created a facebook group to make things a little easier moving forward, but comments have worked well so far.


CHICAGO! I’m Danielle, and I moved to Chicago from LA back in 2010. I work from home most of the time, have 2 rescue dogs, and love interior design, orange theory, and any chance to get outside when it’s not freezing. You can follow me on instagram: @daniellemoss_

Please message me on instagram if you end up meeting someone!
