10 Best apps to meet people going into 2020

Everyone goes out for different reasons, but the trend nowadays is that they meet online and through apps. Do you prefer to meet people through public events or online dating? Here are 10 great options to try out. Results may vary depending on location

1

Outist

Outist

This app is up and coming, but it has a nice blend of meeting people in smaller meetups vs online dating. Joining and creating events is quick and easy so people can find something to do on the fly, and a reference system keeps the creeps at bay.

2

Meetup

Meetup

Meetup is the classic meeting people app, but it has gone stale over the years. They've recently introduced additional fees for event members, so that doesn't help. But depending on the location, some meetups can be active and engaging. You have to sample different groups to find what you like, but it's worth trying.

3

Facebook Events

Facebook Events

This is probably the go to for most people if they are bored and are looking for something to do. Users are on facebook anyways, and events can happen all day. However, you may find yourself having to network into cliques and make and effort to meet and greet people. It's easiest if you find someone to go with.

Eventbrite

This is the big elephant in the events industry. There are a variety of events, and they are usually well organized and lean towards a professional atmosphere. Events usually require a fee or cost, so be prepared to shell out if you bring a guest.

5

Tinder

Tinder

Nobody can forget Tinder! There are plenty of people to match with, and it takes a lower amount of effort due to swiping. You can meet a variety of people here, but you'll have to dig through to find their personalities and interests. The app is based on meeting people through photos, so don't try too hard to find something beyond surface level.

6

Match

Match

Match is the largest dating site in the USA, and one of the better sites if you're looking for a serious relationship. There is a monthly membership fee, so users tend to be more serious and active. If you have a monthly budget for dating, or don't mind the subscription, then try Match.

7

Instagram

Instagram

It used to be great for DMing people, and it was easy to make friends or build relationships through Instagram. It's harder to do so these days, but Instagram is still great for meeting people. The reason is that it's a common contact request when meeting someone, and feels more social than a phone number. For that reason alone, Instagram is great for meeting new people.

OKCupid

OKCupid is a popular online dating site that is known for comical and ice breaking questions that are used to match profiles. There are a ton of users and a wide range of information, so if you want to go through your options and hammer away, this is the site for you. It's one of the most popular free dating sites out there.

Travello

If you like to travel, or are frequently new to areas, then you may need an app like Travello. Most people turn to dating apps to meet people when they travel, but there is a conflict of interest between the users when actually meeting. The focus with Travello is more on meeting travellers, locals, and expats, and not dating.

Nextdoor

Nextdoor is the neighborhood app to find out about general dangers and happens in the local area. Posts are more of an 'alert', but profiles require address verification and real names so alerts feel authentic. You may find your neighbors on nextdoor, but casually meeting someone here will be less common.
