Using dating sites to make friends
Now, it’s time to mention some new ones that you might want to try. Most of them come and go; they start by having a decent amount of users, then they become full of fake accounts or just inactive accounts.
In other words, most of them don’t work as you’d expect.
It’s ideal for making first contact with your new neighbors, plus you can keep on top of local recommendations or classified ads. Bumble (Free) Bumble might be most famous for being a dating app, but it offers more than just romance.
You can tweak some settings specifically to look for new friends in the same way that you’re looking for a date.
Meeting people based on things you have in common is the best way to go.
If you’re not there already, subscribe to Nextdoor, and meet your neighbors.
If you subscribe to a group based on a certain interest of yours, you can chat more with the members than in the past.
Groups used to be too public and were hard to use as a means for creating connections.
I also used that same technique with women to point out that I’m only looking for friends, not dates.This app/website attracts mostly adults and parents, but it can provide great opportunities for neighbor-to-neighbor friends for any age-group.Now that Facebook is trying to separate services like Photos, Messenger, and Groups, the latter feature is becoming more useful.Meetup (Free) Meetup works across thousands of cities.Its aim is to help bring together groups of people that have common interests.
