Remember when meeting strangers from the Internet was a huge no-no? Oh, how times have changed. We now live in a world where we can meet our partner, dog sitter or our new boss right online (while following appropriate safety precautions, of course). And we can even find a new BFF on the world wide web. Look, making friends as an adult can be hard (especially if you’re looking for a specific hobby group, you just moved into a new city or your friend group just isn’t the same anymore). So, where do you even start?
Enter TikTok. Yes, the very platform that taught you how to wear your bikini bottoms as a top, convinced you watermelon and mustard go together and that you should most definitely get the 'wolf cut' is an awesome way to make new friends. A scroll through my For You page and you’ll see New York natives and newbies alike trying to set up fun meet ups throughout the Big Apple. So, I decided to finally try one out and came upon the biggest one yet—No More Lonely Friends—and spoiler alert, it was worth attending.
