You can meet new people using new mobile apps. You also need to try a lot of them, play around and see what works for you. For me, I used Tinder and used this technique to meet other people. Here are 9 more apps you can use to meet people and make friends. I highly recommend to try this app and use it to meet potential friends in your area. Grip Networkr Based on Linkedin, this app finds professionals around your location, and gives you a chance to connect with them.
If you subscribe to a group based on a certain interest of yours, you can chat more with the members than in the past. Wiith Another Tinder-like app, but for meeting friends. You create an mini event and then accept or reject those who might join you. The app then matches you with people who are into the same things. HeyLets This one is similar to CitySocializer, but puts more of an emphasis on places and plans to let you meet others who enjoy similar activities. I also listed all the activities I do baking, shopping, drinking and the activities I totally plan on doing one day tennis, yoga, running.
Those are the shortened list versions. My profile is embarrassingly comprehensive. I think I had some weird fantasy in my head that I was going to magically be matched up with someone on the site who shared all of these interests, who would encourage my shopping and drinking habits and force me to take up Pilates with her, who would be pretty but not threateningly so.
And she would totally live right by me in the middle of nowhere! That brings me to the number one downside of the site for me besides my wildly unrealistic expectations. One of the hardest hurdles for me in trying to make friends after college is that I live far out in the country, about 20 minutes outside of the nearest very small town. I found one person on the site who lives in a nearby town; everyone else was at least 40 minutes away.
Of course, if you live in a highly populated area, this might be worth trying out. In New York, for example, there were more than 1, women of various ages looking for friends on Girlfriend Social. Unfortunately, I never seem to meet people in person. Two of my post-college workplaces are dominated by older, married women, and the friendly something tutors that I work with at another job mostly live at least an hour away from me. And like I said, the problem with living in the middle of nowhere is that there are no opportunities for platonic meet cutes.
