"I think new people might expect to make friends easily since the town is small (I did) but it can be quite difficult to 'find your people' For me, a business owner, plugging into networking events like launch Ashland pub talks and now E2E has been a helpful way to meet likeminded people. Gil's and Growler Guys are both local community hangout spots where people tend to talk to strangers a bit more than other bars and restaurants. I think it's important to know, it just simple takes a little while. It was a year for us." -- Gretchen

 

"I would recommend putting yourself out there, getting involved in a gym! I would recommend not being shy and going to populated places (even if it means going by yourself). I've gone to Growler Guys a few times alone and have found that it is a great place to meet people. Everyone is friendly and interested in talking. I wish that I would have become more involved in groups like the Southern Oregon Running Enthusiast because I like to run and I think that'd be a great way to meet people. " -- Gracie
