Once you are an adult, making new friends gets harder. Add job pressures, limited time, moving to a new place, and all the other stresses that come with being a grownup, and it’s close to impossible to meet friends.
That’s what happened to Elva Carri of Dublin, Ireland. She wanted to go out dancing one night and none of her friends were available -- so she felt stuck. Instead of just sitting around she logged onto Tinder, changed her sex to Male, and wrote in her profile that she was actually a woman just looking for female friends and didn’t know how to go about meeting people. It worked! She ended up meeting a new friend the next night that she had chatted with on Tinder and had the idea that there should be a friendship app for women just like the popular dating app. That’s howGirlCrew was born. It started as a group on Facebook and now it’s an app available in 35 cities worldwide.
