I swear if there isn't already there should be an app for people that are looking just for friends not for dates. You'd still put interests and things like that in your profile but just look for friends! If only I knew how to create apps..

Making friends when you don't have any can be difficult OP. I've had to go through that when I moved to another country where I didn't know anyone who lived even remotely close to the city I moved to. I don't know you so I have no idea what would work for you, but personally I found it helpful to just go out and do stuff I enjoyed anyway, rather than waiting around for friends to magically appear. I took up dance classes, went to concerts of bands I liked, and visited interesting sights in the p

There are, surprisingly I made quite a few friends on Tinder (although that wasn't the goal), and you can use plenty of fish to search just for friends.

You still get creepy responses though from guys on the dating sites when you're looking for just friends. Or at least that was my experience.

I've used the app 'meetme' to make quite a few friends. it also has an option that you can select that says you're either looking for a relationship, friendship or just to chat. might not be the best app to use but I've made a few good friends and met my current boyfriend on it.

Thank you, I've had to go through the process twice (once upon moving to a foreign country, and again when moving back years later realizing most of my old friends had moved on with their lives) so I've become pretty good at this making-new-friends-thing! OP, I've thought about another thing that I found helpful. There's this website called couchsurfing which is basically a site where you can have travellers sleep on your couch for free and you get to sleep on other people's couch for free when

The meetup thing is actually pretty good advice. You can do activities you like and make friends while doing it.

That's what I'm worried about when I move to another country by my own. From my experience of constantly migrating, foreigners usually have no consistent friends. I like your outlook.

If you're looking for friends, I suggest trying to be more social if you're able to do so. If not then I'll be your friend! :D

Hobbies are a good way to make friends. It also means you've always got a common ground to talk about. Take up a hobby :-)

Aw, I'll be your friend.* *. As long as I get up thumbs from the other readers** ** And you don't really accept this offer.

I'm kind of in the same boat - hubby and I have mutual friends but I seem to have none of my own. I agree with MeetUp, that's not a bad way to meet people, if it fits your schedule. There's also Not4Dating.com, if it's available in your area, but I have not found anyone worth contacting yet... they all seem a little sketchy. lol. I'll be your friend if you message me....
