We make finding friends easy.

It takes just 3 steps and you’re up and running!  Let’s get started! 

#1: Create a profile.

Be true to yourself and the kind of person you are. We want to make sure we find a friend that seamlessly fits into your life. If you need inspiration on creating your profile, find helpful tips and additional resources on the About page.

#2: Set your interests and radius.

Do you like hiking? Shopping? Trying new restaurants or listening to live music? Tell us all about your favorite activities, hobbies, and interests — and how far you’re willing to travel to meet with your new friends.

#3: Get Started finding matches!

Read each profile you come across. If you don’t think she’s a great match for you, that’s okay—thumbs down. If you have similar interests, hobbies, and goals—thumbs up. Once you get a match, make sure to say hello! Strike up a conversation and hopefully, you’ll be penciling her into your schedule.

Want to help us grow?

If you’re not located in one of the four metro areas where Nell is launching, that’s okay! You can help us bring Nell to you. Tell women in your life about Nell and have them sign up here. As we continue to grow, we’ll be able to provide more matches in more cities across the U.S. 

We envision a network that stretches across the country and beyond.  Wouldn’t it be great to be able to make friends in new cities? You could do that with Nell. Change your location to another city before or during a trip — that way you’ll know a familiar face or two once you get there.
