My Man Doesn't Know How to Make Love. Help!

Welcome to Ask Willie D, Rocks Off's advice column where the Geto Boys MC answers reader questions about matters, in his own words, "funny, serious or unpredictable." Something on your mind? Ask Willie D!


Dear Willie D:

So I graduated from college, and moved from Houston to California. It's been the best decision so far. I just feel extremely lonely here. I want friends. HELP!

Lonely Newcomer:

A good way to make friends in a new city is to start at your place of employment. Then branch out by joining clubs and organizations that interest you. If you like working out, join a gym. If you are a religious person, locate a place of worship and become a member. If you like helping people, volunteer your free time at a nonprofit.

Don't rush into anything, though. California, specifically the greater Los Angeles area, is ground zero for weirdos.
