Anyone fancy going for drinks tonight?
It's almost paradoxical but despite London's size, it can be pretty difficult to find mates to do stuff with. When arranging meetups with your existing social circle involves planning weeks ahead, and expanding it is even harder, an easy way to find like-minded Londoners wouldn't go amiss...
And that's why Pal App has us pretty excited.
Ditch what you thought you knew about meeting new people via your smartphone — these things aren't solely the reserve of the dating world. Pal App is all about finding new mates in a fun and easy way, helping you connect with like-minded Londoners that enjoy the same activities as you.
Looking for a running partner? Assembling a pub quiz team? Organising a lunch with local mums?
No problem. The whole app is designed around activities, meaning you can post your own, browse ones that others have pitched to the community, or even find people near you who enjoy the same things — making it super simple to fire up the app, befriend your neighbours and find something exciting going on in your area.
Once you've found something you're interested in, you can join in at the click of a button. Participants are then free to natter with the other Londoners taking part — a great way to get the conversation started before you all arrive. There's no spurious back-and-forth here either: only those taking part are able to chat, and you can specify exactly who you'd like to be contacted by.
So if you do fancy drinks tonight, you now know where to look...
