Since we have to stay in the house and also some of us are not able to go to work due to the spread of the virus. It is so hard to see friends, along with we do not have a chance to meet some new people at all. Let’s take this chance to make some new friends or even dates!

Thanks to social media!

Social media has provide us tons of ways to talk to other people even though you never know them before. Here are 10 applications that allow you to get to know more people, in this case to find friends or even relationship.

  4. Find a dating icon which is a heart sign
  5. You can start setting up your own profile

We are able to pick the type that we are interested, which Facebook provides us women, men and more option for all people. Our friends on Facebook will not able to see us in the dating feature and they will not know that we are using this feature, in the same time we will not able to see them too. In other word, Facebook will keep this as a secret from our friend lists. Along with who we block on Facebook, it will not show up in our dating too.

2. Tinder

Tinder is an application for meeting new people, wherever you are Tinder are able to find people who are nearby you. Not only for datings, but also making some new friends. For example, when you are travelling, you are able to meet some local people though this application.

Peanut (Tinder for mums) is an application for community of women who happens to be a mothers. This application brings mothers together to be able to discuss about their life. We are able to connects to other mums by letting us and them ti swipe on the profile just like Tinder.

10. Skout

Some applications might provide an extra features which if you want that you have to pay more (depends on the application)

All these applications are just a choice for us, we are able to choose what kind of relationship we want for example friends, community, or even a relationship like a dating. These applications did not approve you that you will find your soulmate or real friends. All these are just a new experience for us to be able to meet new people.

During this quarantine, at least those applications can provide you people to talk to with the same interest. After a while, when all the virus are gone, we might be able to see these people with the same interest as we do.

Most important thing is we have to be careful about the information and do not make a decision to go out too easy because just to remind, they are all strangers. It is not always safe.
