Empress13 had this brilliant idea to start regional threads for all those looking to make new friends, as a part of NY resolutions or otherwise smile
this is the original thread: www.mumsnet.com/Talk/relationships/2816505-Friends?pg=3

I am in London and I would love to make some decent friends this year smile

I'd recommend starting a Meetup group or something, rather than just posting on here - for security and traceability.

There are lots of oddballs on the Internet

Also, if you start a Meetup group, you're less likely to have a Daily Mail journalist tag along and write a story about you. Just sayin'. wink

I met a friend today for coffee who I met on here. She lives thousands of miles away and we only meet very occasionally in RL but we get on really well.

So it can work.

AmberNectarine Mon 02-Jan-17 22:09:44

I'm in London and I'll be anyone's friend smile

Bant Mon 02-Jan-17 22:16:29

Can I suggest a Facebook or whatsapp group first or something?

Seriously, that way it's still relatively private and people can be ejected if they're weird.

I won't join, as I'm a bloke and that would be odd in a group of mums, but really, this is open to any Tom, dick or Harry, so there needs to be some level of security first before everyone happily rocks up to a coffee shop

How do you want to organise it? Happy to exchange numbers via PM, or could just meet up somewhere central/fairly busy?

Great idea, count me in. I'm a single parent mid fifties living in central London.

Happy to make contact via PM as there are just a few of us.
