I've lived here in LA forever it seems. I'd advise trying Meetups.com Los Angeles. There are some Brit groups on there. It depends where you live. It's so big and the traffic impedes one so much. Lots of Brits live in Santa Monica. Go on down to The Kings Head in SM. Filled with Brits. There's another place in Studio City.......try CitiSearch or Yelp. I'm in Los Feliz.

Congratulations on the move, it's a huge step. May I ask what compelled you to move to Los Angeles? As you don't have a job already it's a bold move.

Hi Dan, I got to LA 3 weeks ago. Its definitively hard starting in a new place. I work for myself from home as well which doesn't help. I've been on meetup.com and am doing a little internet dating. I lived in SF for a year and didn't know anyone when I got there but got there in the end. Just takes a bit of time and effort. Give me a shout on here if you need a beer one night.
