Re­mem­ber your old pen pal – that per­son you bonded with on hol­i­day who you thought would be your BFF, based on a se­ries of let­ters you’d write about a life that barely re­sem­bled your own (so kind of like In­sta­gram then)? Well, to­day mak­ing friends can be far tricker, which is why we’re down with the Lon­don Let­ters Club. It op­er­ates na­tion­wide and matches you with new pen pals to ex­change on­line or pa­per mes­sages with. Want to meet some­one IRL? Try Ci­tyso­cial­izer or Hey! Vina – friend­ship apps de­signed to help you make friends with like-minded women. And for the truly nos­tal­gic, there’s Slowly, where a mes­sage takes as long to de­liver to the re­cip­i­ent’s phone as a real let­ter would. Al­though your mates might have given up by the time it ac­tu­ally gets there.
