How To Make New Friends

Melissa Di Fonzo

Find Your "Chosen Family"

Unlike our family, we can choose our friends. So in a way friends are our "chosen family". It's important that we choose wisely and surround ourselves with supporting and loving people. Happy International Friendship Day!

Are you hoping to make new friends but don't know where to find them? Look no further! 

Here are the top 3 places to check out to meet new peeps!

1. Meetup.com  

This is a great website to meet people who share similar interests to you.  Sign up on the website, choose the categories that interest you, i.e. sports, nature, movies, etc., and then get out there!

2. Bumble BFF 

Yes, you read that correctly. Bumble⁠—best known for its dating app⁠—also has an app to meet your future bestie. Add a few photos of you in your element, write a brief bio and then start swiping!

4. Eventbrite  

You’ve probably bought tickets on Eventbrite before (maybe even for a Shift event!) but did you know it’s also considered the “new” meetup.com. Easily search by date, location, cost and category to find the perfect event to mingle with like-minded folks.

Try something new. You never know what you will learn about yourself!
