    Before moving here, I reached out to people I knew inside Microsoft. I used the excuse that I wanted to ask info about living in Seattle. In general, leverage your network - friends of friends, acquaintances, people you have worked with...

    If you’re younger, also, check out the Facebook group “young Microsoft FTEs” - they do happy hours every Thursday.

    Lastly, find hobbies, sports, etc that interest you. You’ll be able to meet lots of people easily that way, that share your interests.

      I'm sure you can easily Google (or Bing) to find out. And I imagine at this point there are a dozen dms offering to explain it over dinner or drinks In your inbox since you said seattle+female+foodie ..

      Meet somebody you think is cool, try to connect outside of work/context, get blown off or ghosted. Cordial but non committal. That's the freeze.
      It also sucks trying to leave your greater hood. Like living near Northgate and having friends in West Seattle, that spells doom

    If you are asian, there is an asian meetup group who likes boardgames. If you like RPG, there is also D&D on Wednesdays at Mox and other game stores. If you play music instruments, there are orchestras to join.
