How Do I Make Friends As An Adult? Ask A Pro

Dear Head Pro, I moved away from my hometown almost four years ago to a new city. I haven’t been able to make any friends here. At first, I thought the best place to meet girlfriends was at the bar, and that never really led to anything. I have (half—assed) tried to make friends in college and at work but nothing really lasts. I think its a combination of shyness and a feeling like I haven’t found anyone that I really connect with. Any advice on where to go to…

In other words, it doesn’t mark any sort of cosmic milestone and might as well just be a random date on the calendar. (He does it every year.
