Making friends when you're younger just happens naturally. So what do you do if you wake up one morning and realize you don't have any people?
But making friends as an adult is more like seeing the gynecologist. Where do you start without resorting to combing loud bars filled with people who are actually as young as you feel but who look like middle schoolers? I can't guarantee you won't feel like you're about to get the speculum or that you won't fall on your face and spill something that stains on something really expensive.
But instead of the traditional drinks-and-a-movie hook up, more and more of us are downloading the best sex apps that promise no strings sex.
We all know Tinder is notorious for being one of the best sex apps out there, but it isn’t the only one.
Find people you wouldn't mind sharing the same oxygen with and become a more active presence in their online lives. So much easier said than done, but you'll have to do it at some point if you really want to meet new people. You don't have to become flush with all of the coolest friends in town.
If you have your gab session at a park, you don't even have to clean your house or make (buy) snacks.
And if you're child-less, but still have a furry child (as in a cat or dog or hamster, of course — let's not get weird), try heading to a dog park.
For example, if you're a libertarian vegetarian who lives in Minnesota and you like dressing in clown make-up and juggling live sharks, there's probably a meet-up for that. Cause it's not like you don't already have 30 million bajillion things to do. If you do it regularly, you'll meet people who care about the same things you care about.
You can join Meet-ups about gardening, board games, politics, cooking... But it's not like those super boring classes where you have these huge papers and you have to do all the work in your group projects. If you don't meet people, you'll still use your talents to do something good for the world.
