  1. Patook

Two years ago, I moved to a new city and was looking to meet a few new people. However, I was particular about the traits in my new friends especially the languages they spoke and their ethnicity. Other social apps only allowed me to interact with users in my specific neighborhood area and gave me fewer choices. Nevertheless, Patook categorized my requirements and matched me with those who shared the same traits (language, ethnicity, interests, age group) as me.

Patook works differently than other social apps. Instead of matching you with people who are nearby, the app helps you to connect with people who share the same in traits as you. Additionally, you can chat in various chat rooms and schedule meetups according to your availability. If privacy is an issue for you, Patook allows you to customize the feature, so you stay away from spam messages.

Price: Free

Availability: iOS, Android, Mac, and PC

Ideal for:

  • Those who are specific about their friend circle
  • Those who have privacy concerns regarding online social sites
  1. Meet my dog

Are you a dog lover and want to meet fellow canine owners? Well, the world has gone digital, and instead of meeting pet owners in the park, you can get together through an app. Meet my dog, as the name suggests, is an app that allows you to share your photos along with your dog’s and get matched with other ‘dogs’ nearby. Chat on private messages or set up a doggie date, the choice is all yours!

Price: Free

Availability: iOS and Android

Ideal for:

  • No guesses – dog lovers. After all, 24% of men use their dogs to talk to good-looking strangers.


These were just some of the apps that we think you might find useful this holiday season. Whether you are interested in an intimate relationship or just want friends to hang out with – there are countless choices. Just download the app that you interests you the most and chat away!
