Well, if I could time travel I'd hang out with you - I moved there when I was 25 and didn't know anybody either. I didn't really meet people until I started going to UW for some art classes a year later.
I had family there many years ago but they're gone and I live in TN.
Otherwise I 'd definitely be open to that. In fact I'm in a similar situation but employed at a isolated from public chemical plant when not at home. The last person I befriended and hung out with from work, broke in my house one day while I was working. Unfortunately unscrupulous types seem to be very common here. Making it difficult to find friends & heightening SA.
Theres bound to be some good people here that are there. You might try meetup.com & check for a similar group in your area. Might click with someone there. Best wishes on employment & all around.
