By  | 

It’s officially the age of the internet. Every little thing today takes place inside this virtual world, across various platforms. From ordering your favourite food to getting your shopping done on time, the internet literally makes life easier for you. With dating apps like Tinder and Happn, people around the world are hooking up or exploring relationships thanks to the World Wide Web!

But have you ever wondered about apps or websites that can help you make new friends? No commitments, no drama, just good ol’ friendship (or at least not until you’re ready for more). Turns out, there are lots of platforms scattered around the internet for exactly this. So if you’re looking to meet new people, make friends and socialise like a boss, here’s your chance! Keep scrolling to find out the 5 best virtual platforms that can hook you up with the right kind of people.

1. Meetup

Meetup, true to its name, helps you meet new people. The app helps you find groups of people you can meet in the real world who share your interests. Want to meet someone who is as into books or movies as you? This app helps you organise and participate in Book Club Meet Ups, Fitness Meet Ups, and lots more. Download the app on iOS or Android, or you can head over to the website to start surfing.

2. PokéDates

No, don’t worry. This website isn’t about mushy dates or finding the one! It’s essentially about finding someone who is as crazy about Pokémon Go as you are! All you need to do is head over to the PokéDates website, answer some questions about yourself, and the servers will set you up with a perfect Pokématch. Once that is done, the two of  you can pick a place to meet and actually go Pokémon hunting together. Crazy fun, right?

3. Social Radar

What a cool app, this! It gives you real-time information about the people around you. So, you can now walk into a room and know who is going to be there in advance! This app works by taking into account your current location as well as the information on your social media feed. Social Radar enables you to be more aware of the people around you, make new connections and see where your friends are, all at once. Download this app on iOS or Android.

4. Patook

Patook literally comes with the promise of making platonic friends. What more could you ask for? Did you know that Patook also has a system in place that can detect when someone is flirting with someone else? Talk about an app committed only to friendship! This app also matches you with people who are similar to you or have similar interests. It calculates and fixes a point score for every user and tells you how compatible you are with each. Go try out this app on both iOS and Android.

5. Meet My Dog

Are you a huge dog lover? If the answer to that is a resounding ‘yes!’, this app is totally made for you! MeetMyDog is an iOS social networking app for both you and your dog. You can discover and connect with fellow dog-owners, find out who’s walking their dog where, share pictures of you and your pet, and even chat with other dog owners. If this isn’t a great way to meet like-minded peeps, I don’t know what is. Download the app here. If you’re an Android user, don’t worry! You can download the app called Sniffr, which also works along similar lines.
