Best app for serious friendship and/or companionship?

Can anyone suggest what the best app or website out there is to find good friends sharing similar backgrounds and interests? I’m in my mid 40s and NOT looking for sex or any kind of physical contact. Thanks in advance 🙏

Meet Up?

The friendship you seek is not to be found on an app. Stop thinking about your needs and think about the acquaintances in your life and what their needs. Then they will like you and want to be friends with you.

R2 is obviously an idiot

I don't think meeting people on an app is a good idea unless you have A LOT of free time and a high bullshit detector.

You find one you let me know. I finally given up on the apps. Crazy people in this world.

Friendship can be found on any social networking app. You just have to ask the right questions and be persistent. Make them want to be your friend. Search for people who have "friendship only" in their profiles. If you don't want to use hookup apps, Google tells me "Yubo" and "Patook" are somewhat popular for platonics. It sounds simple, but start using Twitter too. Write about your interests and follow people who interest you, and like-minded people will follow you back. And of course, you will always have your besties here at the DataLounge! *hugs*

Either a bar or AA.

Two opposite ends of the spectrum where both ends have the same desire. A drinking buddy. A sobriety buddy. A soul mate. A wound mate.

If you don't have a hobby where you can share a "common interest" with someone, then the above is your best strategy.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
