The title basically speaks for itself.
I have always had a hard time making female friends. I do not have any childhood friends in my life and I was not part of a sorority in college so I don’t have those girlfriends either. My job is somewhat isolating so I can’t really make any connections at work. My family is large but no one really speaks with each other except at family events.
I have tried Meetup but found that a lot of the people are flaky and don’t show up to events even though they have RSVP’d.
Has anyone tried girlfriend social or any other website to meet friends?

californiabride2013 : Have you tried Bumble BFF? While I did experience some flakiness and came across a few potential friends that didn’t work out, I did meet one over a year ago and we have become good friends.

Girlfriend social is a good website to make friends! I made 2 really great friends on there!

Hi, I am a portuguese and I came to live in Germany five years ago. This is when I noticed how crappy I am at making friendships.
At some point I started using meetup as well. My experience with meetup and similar sites, is that you will meet a lot of people where there is no connection, people you don’t need to meet again, people who just want to flirt. but then ocasionally, you do meet a person that is really interesting, nice and worth meeting again. 🙂 so I wouldn’t suggest you to give up quickly
another important thing I learned, is that just like in romantic relationships, friendships also take some work: you have to be proactive in keeping them. And of course that effort has to come from both sides.
I ended up meeting my FH via Internations, an expat community.
