We have been talking about loneliness when you are abroadlet's now talk about how to make friends locals or expatriates when you're living in the Michigan Which are your best tips to meet people and to make friends in the Michigan?
Thanks in advance for your participation. According to my experience the best way to meet people and make friends is to a club or the meet-up. There you will find all sorts of people with the same interests. I had a hard time finding friends and my best friends are people who moved here from other countries.
It it difficult to make friends with Americans as they have a different lifestyle. Friendship as known by Germans is hardly possible. My best friend is German and lives in Dearborn, MI. Welcome to Expat. I would say by going out and meeting people is always a great way. Go to restaurants and get to know your surroundings and meet friends along the way! I agree with Tanteela: Meetup. Don't get me wrong: expat Meet Up groups by all means. But ALSO other groups that have nothing to do with expats, and everything to do with something ELSE you enjoy, like writing or knitting or clubbing.
I would also suggest doing things like ing a religious community finding a Church, Temple, Synagogue, etc. Taking classes is another great way to meet people. You can find classes via your local library, community center, and Community College.
I can say from experience that Oakland Community College OCC is relatively cheap per credit hour, and an excellent experience. Arguably the best way to make friends is by volunteering. There are TONS of local charities, fundraisers, etc. Churches will often have volunteer opportunities, and you don't always have to be a member to participate.
There are also a ton of things like homeless outreach programs St. Al's, the food bank, Focus: Hope, etc. Doing a search in Yahoo or Google should give a ton of. Also, volunteer groups tend to be very open and very, very friendly: everyone is there to help out, and is doing something good, so it puts everyone in a real good mood. As someone who's lived in Michigan her whole life, I can tell you it's very difficult to strike up a friendship with a total stranger at a place like a restaurant or club.
Our culture just doesn't work like that; it's expected that if you go to a social place like a club, you'll be there with your friends and for the most part won't be looking to make new ones. That's why I suggest doing the things above: it's MUCH easier to make friends when you all already know you have a common interest, and are NOT expected to have already showed up with your friends.

I'm glad there are people here that are on the same boat. I've only been here for 3 months and I can't explain the depression I went through especially during the winter. The weather change coming from a hot country to a cold country and trying to make new friends. Any advice is highly appreciated Merci.
My wife is from Singapore, and we live in Utah. There are so many different answers to give to your question. Allow me to touch on one. One by-product of the cold, is that you do not see the sun as much, as it is usually covered over by clouds this time of year. Keep yourself in brightly-lit areas as much as you can simulating sun light. Another possibility is to go to bed early, so you wake up early and that way you are exposed to as much sun as possible.
