My husband and I moved to Devon around 3 years ago. He is happy to go his own way, not really needing mates, but I am a very sociable person and have always found it easy to make friends, to go for coffee, shopping expeditions, theatres, museums - you name it we did it. However, since being here I have struggled. I have joined U3A, as I belonged to one where we moved from, but with very few exceptions, there isn't much the local one does that I like. And even the activities I go to, the people, although friendly enough, are not looking for friends as they have their own outside U3A - unlike my previous one.
I have a wide range of interests, from gardening to learning foreign languages, shopping trips to travelling, various sports to day trips.
Any suggestions would be greatly as I am becoming more and more house bound, with the exception of days out with hubby.
I have even tried volunteering but again everyone seemed to go their own way.
This is an environment I am totally unfamiliar with and am running out of ideas.
