What is We Need Friends?

WeNeedFriends.com was developed by Alexandra Rickeman, a marriage and family therapist who heard from many couples about their lack of a supportive social network, their struggles in developing friendships, and the ways this was affecting them as individuals and as couples. As newcomers to a small town themselves, she and her husband had also been struggling to find a group of friends. Everyone seemed to be saying the same thing, “We need friends!” So Alexandra decided to help create a way to connect all these people in search of the same thing: fun and fulfilling friendships.

FRIENDS ARE IMPORTANT

We can all agree that human beings share a desire to be connected to each other. Sometimes, when we find 'the one' we want to share our life with, we forget about the importance of other types of relationships. Many people begin to believe that their partner can or should meet all of their needs for conversation, fun, companionship, emotional support, humor, etc. This just isn’t realistic. The truth is, having a network of friends is not only a factor in individual happiness, it is also a key ingredient in the health of your intimate relationship. So get out there and make some friends!

HOW IT WORKS

It’s pretty simple. You create a profile by answering some questions about yourselves and your interests. Then you tell us a little bit about what you are looking for in potential friends. Finally, we tell you about the friendship connections we found based on your answers. From there, you have all the control in whether or not to pursue those friendships from your profile page.

WHY IT WORKS

What's the best part about weneedfriends.com? Every individual and couple listed here is looking for the same thing you are! There’s no wondering about whether someone else has any room for new friends. If a friendship connection is made and both parties agree to share their contact information, you each know that the other is interested in a new friendship. It’s like asking someone on a date when you already know they are going to say “yes"! get started »
