I also enjoy socialising. Where are the best drinking spots? Where can I meet fellow expats in Hanoi?
You'll often find that Facebook is a good place to look for expat groups and the people on such forums are often very friendly and helpful. I'd also have a look at how others confronted these challenges in our Expat Experiences in Vietnam page.
Hope that helps a little.
Good luck on your new adventure!
