How to Make New Friends When You Freelance Abroad by Alyssa Tallent — last modified Feb 15, 2018 10:30 AM
When I’m abroad, I talk to my family back home quite often. I have a skype date with my parents once a week, and I talk to my sisters on Facebook or whichever social media is cool this week. Especially my little sister. She’s the only person I actually use Snapchat with.  But whenever I talk to her, she never fails to ask, “What do you do all the time, do you actually have friends??” Yes, Mary, despite what you remember from high school, I do actually hang out with other people.  Besides being a typical little sister who thinks her brother is, like, the biggest dork ever, my sister does raise a valid concern a lot of people have about moving abroad. I think many people are unsure of how they would get by if they suddenly didn’t have their close group of lifelong friends and family around them.  Being a freelancer only makes this worse because it’s not like we can make a ton of friends around the office, unless you count Mr. Whiskers as a friend, in which case, you need to read this more than anyone.  So I’d like to share with you how to make friends and meet people when you’re freelancing abroad.
