Making new friends, much like growing up, is hard to do. Gone are the high school sports teams that linked you up with other athletes and uber-social lunchroom hangouts. Now you have put yourself out there, much like you would while dating. Intimidated? You’re not alone. Luckily there are tons of apps for that. If you’re new to a city, looking to widen your social circle, growing apart from your longtime friends, or just feeling lonely (no shame in that), these apps help connect you with other women, athletes, even moms in the area for you to hit if off with.

That concert you were considering going to alone? These apps are here to help you find someone who loves that artist as much as you do. Maybe you’ve moved back home and you have no idea what people do for fun there anymore. These apps will ping you every time there’s a new event coming up that you might be interested in, plus, you’ll be able to socialize with other users who’ll be attending too. Let’s face it, it’ll most probably be awkward at first, but it’ll also definitely be worth it.

You’re already (most likely!) using apps on your phone to order groceries, call a ride-share, or connect with your family on social media, so why not give these apps to make friends a try too? All of them are free to use, and they might just help you find a new BFF who’s been living on the next block this whole time!

Bumble BFF

Bumble is so much more than a dating app. You can toggle to a completely different version of the app called Bumble BFF to chat with other people in your area and set up dates to hang out. As far as profiles go, it’s all pretty much the same: You upload photos and some info about yourself, and then you swipe left or right on people you think you’d vibe with. If you both swipe right, you have 24 hours to strike up a convo.

Peanut

Hobbies are cool and all, but if you’re a mom who’s new to the city and want recommendations on schools, you might need an app that’s a little more specific. Meet Peanut. The app that connects you with local moms or moms-to-be. Chat about maternity leave, fertility, set up playdates for the kiddos (which will really be for the grownups), and start groups within the app to gather moms who want to hit up a yoga class with you next week. Once you make a profile, Peanut does the hard work of connecting you with parents who have similar interests and children around the same age as yours.
