making friends


Neon Arch Sign in Reno


This question is from Juma from Reno:

I am 29-year-old male living in Reno Nevada. I am married, and my wife and I have a very comfortable DINK (dual income no kids) lifestyle.

We have lived in Reno for the past three years, so far we have had no luck making adult friends. Is there a modern solution to this issue similar to Tinder or other dating apps? Not interested in anything sexual outside of our relationship, just some fellow DINKS to drink with.

Readers in Reno – and let’s open this out to Carson City, and the greater Tahoe area – let us know if you want to be friend-matchmade with Juma and his wife.

But we receive this question from people all over the place, so go to the comments to answer me this: IS there an app or online service for people to meet like-minded individuals with whom to become non-sexy friends? What is the Web 2.0 version of the church social or neighbourhood watch meeting?

    There are several. After I moved to a new city a few years ago, I met pretty much all of my non-work friends through a site called citysocializer. People post events (meals out, drinks, visits to exhibitions, whatever) and other members just sign up for them and go. Most people who join are single, but a few of the friends I’ve met that way are couples. There’s also meetup, which works similarly. These are all in the UK, but I’m sure there must be websites like that in the US.
