Don't be shy. Remember one thing from here, meet up! Go to meetup website to meet people like you. You can find groups who plays soccer, who likes to try out new small restaurants, who likes to run on Saturday mornings, who likes to play dodge ball,or who likes to speak Portuguese/French. You are not the only one who wants to meet new people. Give it a try! Let's read Ricardo's example:
"My friend Ricardo, from Brazil, came to Boston 6 weeks ago. He is 25 years old. He likes to study English but it would be great if he had friends to play soccer together. Ricardo comes to my website, checks out the Meetup's website to see the events. He finds a group of people playing soccer on Saturdays just 15 minutes away from his house. He clicks on the link and registers online. Then, he shows up at the soccer field on Saturday, meets other people who want to play soccer, and have a fun game! As most of other events, all the information about the event is posted online. He checks google maps to learn how to get there with public transportation. Then, Ricardo finally plays soccer in Boston with his new friends. And, he is happy that everything was so easy. He just spent 30 minutes on the web to find out all the information."
