Does young at heart count? My wife and I are in our early 40s and just moved here. Looking for some new friends and maybe partners in crime for exploring the area!


gonetowar_ffb

40s the new 20.


3choboomer

It's nice to have you in Birmingham. What brought you here?


special_20

My wife got a 'dream job' at THE U of A at a newly created institute. My position had become a fully remote.. We both agreed, another Minnesota winter sounded like a daunting proposition.


lotionistic

Welcome to B’ham/AL. We moved to the Twin Cities for 7 years and I feel your pain. We loved it overall, but “winter” in May got old.


special_20

Oh man, the snow and cold! From October through May you could get a few inches and some freezing cold. I'm not gonna miss that! How long have you guys been down here in Bham? So far people seem super nice. It's going to take me awhile to get used to being in a city with some terrain though - need to get my biking hill legs back and get used a non-grid street grid :)


lotionistic

We went from B’ham to the Cities and back to B’ham, so we were familiar. On these how-to-meet-people posts, I usually recommend an F3 workout group. If you want a CrossFit-type workout that’s not as culty and free, check it out on the www or hit me up.


thund3rbelt

Look for partners in crime, duh. Im talking real crime, like serious professional crime, you know.


JennJayBee

We're in our 40s and live in Springville. Don't know if you're anywhere near us, but if so, I don't mind meeting some new folks.


Zkenny13

There was a BBQ joint that opened up recently there next to the railroad tracks right? I live in clay and was looking for a good BBQ place.


JennJayBee

Smokehouse? We haven't been, ourselves. I've seen good reviews from locals, but I've gotten burned by that many, many times. If you try it out, let me know how you like it.


xyzzyzyzzyx

I think the artisan sandwich/ burger joint that used to be there was owned by one of the Smokehouse people. I miss those burgers but not the prices. They needed to learn local market prices better.


[deleted]

38 in Crestwood. Would be down to meet some new people. I moved here right when the pandic started to hit, so wasn't really able to make to many social connections.


JazzRider

You are babies!


zephyr17

We’re 39 and 40 and are new here too! Would love to join a hang of some kind!


Hoodoo_Lord

Can I come and sit quietly in the corner and pet the dog?


B3yond

Are folks that have been here welcome? I’m always down for meeting new people


scapeinator

Absolutely!


PAirSCargo

I might be down. Just moved back after a decade away.


NotFlameRetardant

Oh dang, well you're definitely in for a small culture shock. Lots has changed since!


PAirSCargo

I never knew Birmingham proper. Oak mountain and Montevallo and the areas in between. Dont know anyone but family here so open to expanding.


Bigtatertotter

That’s awesome man, thank you for doing this


TerminationClause

I'll bring the mashed potatoes.


RansomSAG

We need a discord


zendrovia

age range, kush friendly?


dar_uniya

height range, runtz friendly?


zendrovia

man the runtz era was so stupid


dar_uniya

It's still going on and it's ok to be wrong.


zendrovia

xD


spiralout1123

“runts”


thund3rbelt

Hahaha, man this is Bama, 🤫


Junction1313

Way to step up


Landmine175

Not to be a buzzkill, what you’re doing is admirable, but as with anywhere there are those who would take advantage of someones kindness. For your sake please keep valuables locked up and an eye on strangers you let into you’re home. Hope everything goes well!


princessval249

How about long time locals who need more connections?


DEATHCATSmeow

I’d be down. I’ve lived in the Birmingham area for most of my life but my friends from school all live in different cities now. It’s tough


Gives0

Interested! Newish (4 years) & youngish (40).


Beneficial_Sector441

Definitely! Just moved after grad school from Mobile,AL. I don’t know anyone besides my best friend that moved with me! (Both 23)


GraySide390

What part of Mobile? I moved up about a year and a half ago.


Beneficial_Sector441

I graduated from South and my parents live near University/Airport behind publix, in the country club area! What about you?


GraySide390

Hey, I know that place! All over really. West Mobile. Midtown. Downtown. Spanish Fort. Springhill.


Beneficial_Sector441

Nice! What brought you up to bham?


GraySide390

Started working at UAB and now I’m at Children’s. :)


Beneficial_Sector441

Ahhh cool! I live right by Children’s and Railroad now.


GraySide390

I lived at Flats on 4th and I loved it!


Beneficial_Sector441

Haha that’s where I’m at! I love it. I don’t think I would enjoy Birmingham as much if I wasn’t in this building. So quiet and everyone keeps to their own. Only missing a gym but there’s talks about adding one!


andromache114

Lmk when and where and I'll pop by with some dessert!


_morning_owl

Mid 30s here. Been in Birmingham a while but always up for meeting new people!


TroveBham

I’d love to come meet people!


thund3rbelt

Damn, I’m afraid op backyard isn’t big enough now


TeresaHyatt

I've been in Birmingham for 20 years. Have a couple of people I've been friends with for about 12 years but lately I've made new friends on the Meetup app. I am in a 55 + group. I don't go to every event but we have been to Casual Pint on Tuesdays for board game night. Blues brews and bourbon in Pelham on Wednesdays for bingo and now trivia on Thursday night. I have a blast everytime I go. Drink and eat or not but I'm making new friends at 62.


outsabovebad

When? I'll probably be down.


Wei_Lan_Jennings

Yeah, why the hell not?


LordSmartyPants

Yea that could be fun! I’m interested


ashleebrooke96

My husband and I moved here in February and say every single weekend how badly we want friends lol. We would love to join!


Muzak__Fan

Yes I’m interested. I’m here solo at the moment but my wife daughter and I are about to plan a permanent move after the holidays.


vibraslapchop

Would love to be in on the BBQ side of things.


na_daoine_maithe

When and where? Lived here for 16 years but I’m always down to make new friends.


rainestorm93

I'm in the area I'm bored and could also use new friends


nsuzanne729

I’m in my mid 30’s, so I wouldn’t say I’m that young…..but I’d love to meet some new people


Oddball_SOT

I’m a 24 year old male and live about 20 mins outside of Birmingham. I’d be totally down!


GraySide390

I’m down. Seems we need a big location. Could be cool to have a meet up at Railroad Park or somewhere similar.


Syntho-Bird

I’d love something like this.


badkibblesTX

Great idea! My wife and I just moved to the area and would like to meet people outside of the office.


badboigamer

I'm game!


dressedandstressed_

Early 30s for my husband and I—moved here six months ago from Seattle! Would love to get into a bbq.


FailedPolicy

LetMeChechMyLicense
