I'm moving soon, and for the first time I won't have the built-in community of school.
How can I meet people in my new town, even if I'm shy?
My advice is: start with Twitter. It may not be any help at all, depending on your town, but many larger towns and smaller cities have bigger-than-usual Twitter users per capita. Des Moines is like that.
That's it. I'm a nerd. That's my advice. So I throw it open: Homies, how's a shy girl meet the nice people in her new town?
