Online dating is becoming increasingly appealing due to the swipe screen method most are using, but what if I told you that you can swipe your way to a best friend as well? Hey! VINA launched yesterday in San Francisco and is an app that allows you to connect with other women and build friendships based on common interests.


Hey! VINA also requires that you complete a brief personality questionnaire. This is where you provide info that a potential friend might want to know: Are you introverted or extroverted? Do you prefer meeting up for coffee or wine?

You ever see a women whether in real life or on social media that you would really like to know, but you were too afraid to approach her or just didn’t know what to say? The app will send an introductory message to both people when they match — because, in an app for friendships, how do people know who’s supposed to make the first move?

I have some bad news though, the app is only available in the San Francisco area…for now and only available for download on iTunes, but if you download it you’ll be added to the wait list for other locations.

  1. I think this is a really good idea! As you get older, I find it’s becoming increasingly hard to find good friends. Sure, you have acquaintances from work, but true friends are few and far between. And I miss having a circle of friends. I do believe I will sign up and hope that it comes to NY soon!
