MnG-App-IconAn average of 55 people move to the city of San Diego each day*! That’s about 20,000 more people looking to make new friends every year. But even America’s 8th largest city can feel lonely when you haven’t quite gelled with your coworkers, neighbors, or other people you come across on your daily path. Enter MeetnGreet.

MeetnGreet helps you start new connections so that you can find your new crew. Whether you want to go out for drinks on a Saturday night, or just don’t feel like trying a new restaurant alone, MeetnGreet shows you people who share similar interests and are close enough to join you on your adventures. MeetnGreet’s open forum feature is also the easiest way to connect and talk with local people about the things that matter to you.

The app is completely FREE! Users sign up as an individual or couple, and each person will have the opportunity to build a profile. The matching engine then calculates the user(s)’s best Connections. The App allows users to chat with their Connections directly and/or engage with the MeetnGreet community via the open Forum. The Forum is also a great place for new San Diegans to find out what events are happening around town, read local recommendations, and ask other SD people for help figuring out this sunny town. Users can get invited out by others to do things that match their interests, or they can set up meetngreets (get togethers) with their Connections.

Unlike other social apps, MeetnGreet does not try to connect you with people you already know, however vaguely, nor does it require people to join a certain group to find out information about events. Instead, MeetnGreet is primarily for making new connections and getting out around the local community.

Other reasons that people use this app include: changes in location within SD, changes in life stage, changes in marital/relationship status, new or existing interests not matching with existing friendships.

MeetnGreet is a company based on the belief that friendships enhance the quality of life. MeetnGreet is a San Diego startup that launched in January 2015. It was founded by a Southern California couple that is on a mission to connect people and promote face-to-­face interactions. MeetnGreet has been available as a website since the company’s launch.

MeetnGreet is available for free on the App Store and requires iOS 9.2 or later. It is compatible
with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. MeetnGreet is also available on Google Play and requires Android 4.1 and up.
