Well has been some time since I moved to ny, I'm from eastern Europe and im living here permanently. I have a lot of guy friends here mostly from my country and some Americans, but im kinda tired with some of these guys, they're party people mostly. I'm looking for something new, I know NY has more to offer than clubs and alcohol, that's why im looking to make a girl friend friend. Where I work is mostly guys so I have 0 chances on finding a good friend there. I had mostly one night stand with several girls, I know there's a lot more here than getting laid. So my question is, how to make a good girl friend and let her know gently that im looking only to be friends? And are girls down with that here I mean can they see a friendship from a foreigner who barely knows anything about this country and how stuff works here? And where I can meet nice people besides clubs? I'm not looking for relationship because I wanna focus on my job and hopefully next year I'll start the college too.
