Moving To A New City Where I Don't Know A Soul
Sick of LA and want to head back east. Have my sights on Atlanta or Nashville. Visited both a few times and seems like either could be a good fit. My family's in North Carolina so I wouldn't be too far. Only thing is I don't know anyone and fear I'll be lonely even though I'm okay with being alone most of the time. Anyone ever move somewhere that you didn't know anyone? How did you go about meeting people? Anyone live in Atlanta or Nashville and want to tell me what a mistake I'm making?

I’m assuming you’re a Yankee.
Your version of English lacks a second person plural.
Southern English has y’all. So fuck off.
--Standardized language is just a dialect with an army and a navy.
Yeah, I hate to admit it since I grew up here but Atlanta lost its Southern charm a long time. So many cunts here, male and female, who just stare back at you if you say hello in passing, even to neighbors. If you are that type, come on in, you'll fit. For those of us friendly Southern ones, it sucks. Sick of social retards.
--ready to go back to L.A. since little difference but more movies
No one suggested New Orleans? Granted I'm in NYC and know little about it but I thought it was supposed to be a good place to live (at least, for the right people I suppose). Am I completely wrong?
Yes, you're completely wrong, R101. I love New Orleans, was born there, have family there, visit all the time, but would never live there.
The infrastructure is a wreck. Right now thousands are without power and many without water due to an ice storm. The disaster that was New Orleans after Katrina would never have happened if the levees had been properly maintained. Crime is through the roof. The government is corrupt. Add to that an influx of trustafarian hipsters coming in and driving prices up, it's hardly affordable any more to any but the wealthy.
Oh, and good luck finding a paying wage.

OP, go to a purple state that you can help turn blue, so that eliminates Atlanta and Nashville. Go to a purple district in Georgia.
