When you’re a child it’s so easy to make new friends. You’re constantly meeting new people at school, after school clubs and evening hobbies. As you get older however and head into adulthood, discovering how to make new friends can be tricky, especially if you’ve just moved to a new area where you don’t know a soul. Whilst it may seem hard, the internet makes connecting with new people so much easier and this gives you so many opportunities to make new friends. In my latest post I’ll show you the methods that really work.

Hey Zina

Hey Zina is a networking app just for women. It helps you meet new girls from your local area. You can set the distance from 0-50 miles from where you live so you have more opportunities to meet new people. You’ll be presented with a selection of girls and you have to swipe right on the ones you’d like to be friends with. If they swipe right too you’ll create a ditto and then you can message them. The app also offers some quizzes and has created a new way to meet people called Plans. Plans is very similar to MeetUp in that a group of people will meet up together (rather then one to one interactions). There’s no fee but it hasn’t really taken off yet as there’s not much available on the app.
