So lately I’ve been trying to meet girls. Do you know how hard it is to meet girls in a new city?! So hard. Never did I think I would move to a new city and try and think of the spots were I could meet not boys …. but girls. Katelyn and I walk down the street and try and think of excuses to talk to the trendy girls in front of us, or the cute girls that just walked by with their yoga mats or the girls that were next to us in line at the bar. How do you meet girls in this city?!

I’m not trying to make moves, I’m trying to make life long friendships. Or at least find someone to grab lunch on a casual Tuesday. And as much as I love dating and meeting boys, they have totally taken a back burner because who am I going to gush about the cute boy from the coffee shop I saw earlier without girlfriends?!

So number one this post goes out to you Katelyn, my perfect roommate. How lucky am I to have landed a best friend by chance, one who I can share my Shipyard Pumpkin beer obsession with and always convince it’s time for Bova’s (best pastries around and perfectly placed at the end of our street). Bless you. And thank you to two girls that feel like my Boston big sisters, Lisa and Jen. They have totally taken me under their wing. You might be a locals and a couple years older but you did buy me my first drink in the neighborhood and definitely remember your years of being 22. And I love that one of my best friends from Wilmington, Maureen, just moved here too. This city needs a few more southern girls like us. Oh and one final shout-out to my latest best friend I made last weekend as we bonded dancing to “Sweet Caroline” and venting about how hard it is to make girlfriends in this city. Just the start to a beautiful friendship.

But most of all I truly cherish my ladies from home, my UNCW girls and Asheville loves, that have scattered all over the country. How lucky am I to have you all in my life even if we are hundreds of miles apart.

So here’s to loving my old friends, brand new friends and all the ladies I have yet to meet! It’s all part of my big city adventure.

“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it in yourself.” ❤

*Disclaimer: Boston boys, you haven’t gone unnoticed. And let’s be honest, if you come up with a better pickup line than “Have we met before?” I might even say yes.



  1. I love this post! It’s SO true that it’s hard to make girlfriends when you’re out on your own for the first time. With a little searching and pushing myself, I happened to find some great ones in Atlanta – it just takes time 🙂

    1. Thanks for your sweet comment! I was truly overwhelmed by the number of people that have reached out to me since I shared this expressing the same difficulties. I realize now more than ever patience is a virtue, friends will come with time 🙂
