My husband, John, and I are moving to Denver, Colorado next year...something that I am super excited about as I really really love the city. The sad part is we are trading the comfort and stability of the life we have in Missouri for something new, and that includes being near my friends. I am slightly nervous that homesickness will get the best of me.
So now I am wondering: I know we are going to Denver this October for a visit and to scout out a few apartments, should I contact some atheist groups in the area? Or should I wait until Spring when we will be preparing for the move? It'd be nice to have some acquaintances by the time we move up, but I feel awkward at the same time.
Any advice?

Do not limit your circle of acquaintances to atheists. It is better to include theists so that you can always feel superior and have an object of derision within your circle. If you become skilled in masking your true sentiments those rubiginous cheeks will not color over so easily.

It may be possible to do a search here on Atheist Nexus, or else elsewhere on the web, for any possible atheist support groups in or around the area to which you and your husband John are about to move. It may be worth a shot, and maybe it will turn out to have been well worth the shot. All the best to you and your husband. Good luck.

Might I suggest going to church? Ha, you laugh. But seriously, the Unitarian Universalist churches have all sorts of atheists attending (I'm one). Best of luck!

What part of Missouri are you from? I'm from Saint Joseph.

I don't know if the following will have any value for you.

My older sister graduated high school in Ohio a month before our dad moved us to Florida. She didn't want to leave the girls she'd met in Catholic schools and for a few weeks stayed with relatives. When she joined the rest of us she found a job she liked and, soon, a man she liked. She quit Catholicism and married him. She was soon excitedly telling the rest of us that leaving her Catholic school friends was the best thing she could have done.

I would have enjoyed Denver more than I did Phoenix. I loved my twenty years in San Francisco.
