Since 2002, Meetup has helped people make friends. The easiest way to spark new friendships is by starting with a shared interest. Attend Meetup events for your hobbies and meet like-minded people. Regularly attend events to get to know the people you meet. Join groups to find lasting communities.
Friends make life more enjoyable. They are the people who will celebrate good times and help you through the rough times. Making friendships and finding community are also a vital part of your mental health and wellbeing. Research shows that community is one of the greatest indicators of lifelong health and happiness.
How do I find a friendship group?
Find friendship groups by starting with your interests. Search for any topic you like: soccer, knitting, book clubs, and more. Attend events to meet like-minded friends near you.
Where can I meet new friends?
Start locally: you can meet friends who live in your city at workout classes, cultural events, or even the dog park! Volunteer for local causes or organizations to meet people who have similar values. Attend Meetup events for your interests and make friends who share them.
