The friendless 'city'

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2018 at 12:19 PM

After years away, I knew Halifax would've barely changed, with the exception that every great (and driven) friend of mine left, too. Outside of university clubs, there are no friendly socials in this city (unless you like book clubs, gaming or have an interest in local art). Who has ever seen such a bare meet-up selection? No wonder everyone feels lonely. Halifax: Act like a big city and start making it easier for people to meet new friends, then maybe they wouldn't all leave for greener pastures. Especially for a city that prides itself on immigrants and newcomers. Oh and, just a heads-up, not everything social needs to involve drinking.
