Think of the kinds of things you love to do, and then find other people to do them - it's really that easy. When I moved back to Vancouver, Canada, I struggled to make friends, much less find someone I was interested in dating.
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to meet singles is to spend time where other singles hang out.
