I moved to Vancouver from Ontario about six months ago for work and am having a really hard time adjusting. I have 0 friends here and don't know why. I am nice to people and do a lot of outdoor activities. The people I work with just don't include me in their after work activities. Everyone seems to have these cliques from middle school, high school, and university that they stick with.
I helped someone from work move from their apartment and they didn't even thank me and the next day at work they just ignored me.
People here seem to expect you to bend over backwards for them but never reciprocate.
The other thing that really bothers me is so many people who live in this amazing place don't ski, snowboard, hike, go camping, fishing or do any outdoor activities. Whats the point of living in this amazing place if you don't enjoy the outdoors?
I had so many friends in Ontario with basically no effort and I put out so much effort here and I just feel really lonely.
I am going to give it another six months and if things don't change I am going to move back.
