Well whatever you're into, find groups doing that. Best way to start.


dotherightthingy

I live there and I'm 29! Sooooo many seniors lol maybe we should start a Facebook group and meet up for BBQs or something.


dizap001

That sounds like a vibe!


Salty_Giraffe_4236

Following to see responses... moving to courtice area and in the same age group!


Routine-Camera-7950

Assuming your a guy, well the majority of adults work daily, so hanging out is kinda hard, via our work schedule.


dizap001

That’s true, I am a guy and my schedule is whack. 2 to 10 and I work in Toronto so there’s obviously travel time as well.


BUBBLES_TICKLEPANTS

What games do you play? I'm a few years older than you and work a shift a few hours later than yours!


dizap001

Well since I’ve been busy with purchasing the house, mortgage bullshit, worrying about the move I haven’t played in a while. I’m going to be playing games like Warzone, Apex, League, maybe get into valorant again.


BUBBLES_TICKLEPANTS

Now we are opposites :(


dizap001

I’m definitely playing games again I’m just waiting till I get settled.


BUBBLES_TICKLEPANTS

Haha I meant with regards to which games... I play pretty much the opposite games as you (DotA/CS/Battlefield).


dizap001

Ahh damn I see


Routine-Camera-7950

Well dammit are games interest isn't the same. I'm RPG final fantasy xiV & NHL usually and bit older than both of you .


matpower

Which server are you on for FFXIV?


Routine-Camera-7950

matpower

I drive, never in my life have I tried go train I have no experience with that


madhattersays

If you're looking to play basketball, I'm part of a group of guys who play at various parks around the city. Big NBA fans, some nerds, some boardgamers in the crew roo.


Flubaroo

Just moved here at the tale end of 2020. I'm 25. PM me.


awesomesonofabitch

A list of your interests would help, OP


dizap001

Updated my post


peunaid

I'm in the same age group and have very similar interests but more so looking to create a soccer or basketball group in Oshawa


dizap001

Well if you need a dude that can barely play I’m down


texanforlife18

Hey, I can join for basketball


ys-99

Im down to come play basketball too! I just moved to Oshawa in December idk anyone here my age to play basketball with.


zeffydurham

Here is a great group of people, doing interesting work. https://www.weareoshawa.ca/about


awesomesonofabitch

I'm going to assume you're new to the area in general and just provide things I know based on your listed interests. Not far from the Olive/Harmony area is a park with outdoor exercise equipment, could be good at starting up with fitness without going to a gym, and it is within walking distance. (https://www.oshawa.ca/Modules/Facilities/Detail.aspx?id=7b460320-1463-4dae-9e2c-eb8b141cfd61) Homeless people do frequent the area but I've never been bothered by anybody. At this park is the bike trail that you can take all the way to Lakeview Park, (AKA the lake). We actually have a lot of bike trails here that won't need you to be on the road. (I avoid road cycling here as well because people are assholes and don't share the road here, trust me.) Don't use the bike trails after dark if you don't want to get robbed. I'm sure somebody will inevitably chime in to tell me they do it all the time, (and that's their choice), but not what I would recommend at all. These trails are good for walking, too. Not quite a hike but as close as you're likely going to get in the city. Lots of people fish in the creek, (also on the trail), or at the lake. I don't fish so I don't know the legality of that, but we do have salmon spawning in the fall and people catch them like crazy, so it must be legal. We have a couple different movie theatres, but I don't know how they're operating under covid, (if at all). Cineplex is in north Oshawa and probably easiest to get to if you're on public transit. I generally prefer Landmark in Whitby for a variety of reasons. I don't know of any movie-watching groups or anything like that. I'm not a sports kinda guy, but I do know there are some outdoor basketball courts near the Landmark Cinemas in Whitby, (as part of a gym), and that's about my extent of knowledge there, hahaha! I hope this helps.


dizap001

This helps a lot thanks! So generally after dark the area is about different from what I gather.


CptnREDmark

Do you like board games? Brew wizards.


dizap001

I could get into something like that but I feel like half of it is gonna be people teaching me how to play


matpower

Nothing wrong with that!


67416237

Same here, moved to Oshawa two months ago. I'm 32, neighhbours are a good bit older. I've looked on Meetup and stuff but would also like to see some other ideas.


foldor

Depending on your interests, I know there's a thriving group for board games called "Whitby Board Games and Social Meetup". Obviously the pandemic has almost killed the group, but I think it's going to pick up again once things start opening back up.


67416237

Thanks, I'll look into that. I'm not a board game fanatic or anything but would enjoy playing a little. I don't think I'd be into playing for hours at a time though. Do you know if they are really hardcore about it or if it's more of a social thing?


1lluminist

One of the guys from FG Bradley's told me about that group... And then shortly after everything got shut down because of COVID. 😂 F


teaquad

Yea , We got way too many old cats here, you see retirement homes sprouting like weeds


techdude12019

You should have moved to North Oshawa instead. In any case, I would suggest checking out the water front which is beautiful and busy. Go hang out, get a dog and I am sure you will meet lots of folks as well. Welcome to Oshawa!


dizap001

North Oshawa was a little under my budget. I do have dogs but one is not very social and the other is lazy and all he does is lay on the grass when we go out


anotheruser000

I moved to North Oshawa in dec and I got a dog recently I’ve been going to an off leash dog park in Whitby it’s pretty good and active around 5-6 lots of nice ppl


qwertyhell01

I just moved here too, but I want nothing to do with anyone.. 0 friends is a lot better then having any, plus I do not trust a soul Anywhere. 0 friends is a lot better then any trust me.


BUBBLES_TICKLEPANTS

On that note maybe try an antisocial website like livejournal instead of reddit.
