I have lived here five years! My home was like Grand Central Station in Florida. Everyone dropped in and sat around the campfire, came to eat, watch movies, party, relax They came for advice. They came for a shoulder to cry on. They came because they felt welcome. They came because they knew I not only cared I shared my home, my wisdom and my good fortune. Where are all the people here in Iowa? It certainly isn't because I haven't put in the time and effort to try and meet people.

I leave a card with people I would like to get to know better wherever I go. I have an upbeat happy go luckly personality. I am sincere, funloving, caring, optimistic, tolerant. It does not matter how old you are, what color or sexual preference you are, what religion you are or if you're an athiest.

It only matters to me that you are a good friend. You smoke or you don't. You drink or you don't. You are fat or thin, old or young You see I am open to all kinds of people. If Iowa is truly a friendly place, then all you people who are friendly and could use another good friend I am tired of not having people in my life.

I miss people coming over to relax or who need help with something. I'm a great guy. I like me.

What have you done to seek friends? Are you involved in any groups or clubs? What kind of work do you do? Have you made any friends that way? How old are you? Are you single?

I'm wondering if some of these things are factors. I've lived in CR and I found it to be fairly conservative in some ways, and quite family-oriented. Overall, I think Iowans are fairly guarded when it comes to meeting and hanging out with new people. Location: Minnesota. California Dreamin'. I live in IA, but not Cedar Rapids area- but I'm not from here, and you always feel like you don't have an area last name, haven't known people forever, don't have the right ancestry or the right mentality.

I think that is true of smalltowns everywhere though. I could never make friends either. Finally I decided to get to know people through a forum where people shared my interests not this oneand I ended up getting to know people who shared my interests, but lived faraway. I only made one true friend out of it though.

They live in Louisiana, and I in IA, we are best friends, and that can be an answer to a no friends problem. It is sometimes hard having someone live faraway, when you want to meet them so much, but there are many advantages too. You are no longer lonely, and you learn about a different place from someone who lives there.

It becomes interesting because it's funny how much people can have in common, although they live in vastly different places! And having someone to talk to about things you are mutually interested is fun, even if you can't actually be with them.

I think it's better than being lonely in IA. That has just been my experience. I have to admit that I've never been to Cedar Rapids. I have only lived in towns 8, something or smaller- for the record. I think people in IA are friendly in their own way, but if you aren't the kind of person who wants those kind of people, you have a problem.

In the small towns, people do care what your last name is, at least in my experience, but since I've never lived in Cedar Rapids or anywhere near I can't speak about that. Cedar Rapids has people, but I doubt there is much more to the place than I saw this summer. Move outta Dodge!

I personally am not a big fan of CR but it depends on the stage you're at in your life. If you are young and single and looking for fun things to do and a fabulous night life, it may not be for you. If you have a young family or are thinking of starting a family, it has great schools with good sports and fine arts programs, good parks, decent shopping, good job opps, etc. Also the housing options are varied and affordable, compared to where I live Iowa City.

If you are middle aged, it has good restaurants, great local fine arts, good hiking trails, a decent minor league baseball team, etc. The overall atmosphere of CR is a mixture of professionals and factory workers and there is a fair amount of diversity, depending on which quadrant of town you choose to live in. It still has the feel of being a big small town, though. At least to me. I can't put my finger on why that is, but it just is. The atmosphere is fairly conservative, though not necessarily politically-speaking. This city has more fun stuff for small kids to do than my city, in terms of good outdoor play areas, indoor play areas, swiming pools, etc.
