Be a Friendly Neighbor

When you move into a new community, you want to make sure that people know you are friendly and happy person.  By simply smiling at neighbors as you walk by, waving to those whose paths you cross, or extending a few words each time you see people, you will make a positive first impression on your community.  This is a great first step in meeting new people and starting to bond with your neighbors.

Take a Class

Many apartment complexes offer evening social events to help promote community engagement and socialization between its renters.  These keep up the morale in the apartment complex while also providing renters with an opportunity to easily meet new people.  Many people who just move into apartments will have an easier time signing up for a social event that they enjoy in order to feel like part of the community faster.

Hang out at the Swimming Pool

Be sure that you fully utilize all of the amenities offered at your apartments in Gainesville, FL, including and especially the swimming pool.  When you hang out at the swimming pool, it will be easy to strike up conversations with others that are doing the same. Spend your weekend poolside to meet up with others that want to relax and unwind in the same way.  Once you start to recognize the regulars, you can then strike up conversation and suggest social outings.

Use Your Dog

When you frequently visit the dog park or hit the walking trails with your dog, other dog owners will notice.   When you both become regulars at the dog park, you can easily strike up conversations about your common interest -- your dogs.  This can then open up conversation and then be easy to transition into many different topics.

Suggest Outings or Happy Hours

When you run into the same people often, you might want to suggest that you meet up and do something social together.  Asking them to coffee or a happy hour will be a good way to extend the invitation that you want to become friends.  You will be surprised at how many people you can become friends with by simply offering out an invitation to hang out or meet up later.
