Hi there Belinda and welcome to Barcelona! I'm from the UK too and have been in Barcelona for just over 2 years now. I had exactly the same experience as you when I first came here. It takes much more time than you think to settle in! Infact, it was precisely that which inspired me to set up my own company here - DateClub - which has now been going for just over a year.
Briefly what we do is organise events for single people in Barcelona - speed dating, dinners, catamaran cruises, parties and more. It has been very successful so far and I know of lots of couples who have got together after meeting at one of our events. It's also a great way to make new friends with both guys and girls - it's not necessarily just about 'dating!
Anyway, if you want to see more information about all of our activities check out the website
