No, not that ‘professional networking’ site Dave in IT always messages you on, but the new way to get – and stay – connected
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.
