I find people seek romantic relationships instead of friendships to avoid that transitory feeling, and also to feel emotionally safer.

It was getting serious with one of my Tinder matches.
After a witty opener (he, having studied at Oxford, asked if I was British because I somehow looked it) and exchanging our jobs and educational background, we were discussing our favorite Delaware beach destination.
The took a closer look at three such sites in particular: Social Jane.com, Girl Friend Circles and Girlfriend Social.
Our members are people like you looking for hiking partners, dining companions, drinking buddies, a friend to go see a movie with, someone to play tennis with, or a great new best friend.
During the month that I used social dating apps to find new buddies, I sent countless unrequited salutations, offered up priceless New York City travel recommendations, and even gave my number to a guy who wanted to discuss first amendment rights. When I started, I believed that, with millions of people just searching for company online, I'd easily find my new bestie or at least someone down for a platonic hang.
A friend finder app, after all, didn't seem too far away with Tinder for cats and other spin-off matching services debuting. Lyke Me, an app three Michigan State University students have designed to match people based on interests, is launching this fall.) On a personal level, I wanted more friends.
Striking up a friendly rapport with a newcomer becomes the exception, not the norm. These days, there are apps for pretty much anything, from getting a cleaner in after a party to chartering a private jet and booking a massage. ‘Wiith’, a new San Francisco-based app, is designed to buddy you up with people looking for buddies. No romance, no sex, just pure, unadulterated friendship. The premise is simple: if you’re new to a city, or just want to meet someone new, the app connects you with like-minded others inside a set radius.
You sign up via Facebook, build a basic profile, then approach people for friendship or arrange social events and invite others along.
We’re two sisters that live across the country from each other and think it’s really hard to meet new friends - like really good friends, not acquaintances. I lived in Florida and although the people were friendly and I was very active socially, and I did make friends, it was very transitory.
