    I’ll prepare you that Reading isn’t a very social place to live.
    As stated; I’ve lived around the Globe, made friends in each new destination including our 12 months living in Wales – all great with the exception of Reading, Berkshire.

    In our 2 years of living here; I’ve got out thereabouts mixed amongst the locals. However, even they’ll be honest enough to say their not interested in forming friendships outside their family; existing friends and social media friends. They are not open to making any new friends. But they are friendly towards you at these meet-ups
    I think it’s a English thing? Or they are content to have and keep their friends on Social Media? Guess at 57 I’m too Old School and my personality yearns People interaction. I’m a sociable / people’s person.

    I do wish you well.

    Hi Becky,

    We live in West Reading, RG301HX. So Hubby gets bus on Oxford Road to Reading Station into his London Office once a week; the remaining 4 days he works out of his Reading office. Oxford Road is a nightmare to travel along most of the time.
    We’ve lived in Reading 2 years and it’s not my “Cuppa-Tea”. I’m hoping to relocate South to Southampton ASAP. But that’s a ? as hubby’s the Reading Office Manager plus Manager of a team of staff too. But it’s not quiet off the table yet?

    Please Feel free to connect with this Aussie via email: 4nrgirl@gmail.com Anytime. We’ve also lived 15 years in America plus 12 months living in Cardiff, Wales which we lived. It is a Fabulous place filled with friendly locals who are warm and welcoming too! Shame about the Welsh Weather; 4 Seasons in most days. Guaranteed Rain everyday.

    I wish you a successful relocation Becky. You’ll always get a seat through to London. Then it’s standing only between train switches.
