5 Tips for Making Friends as a Single Woman Moving to Paris

January 26, 2020
Paris is a great place live. It’s safe, you’ll never run out of things to do, and despite the rumours, Parisians are actually very welcoming. But before you pack up and start your new life in the city of love, read our tips for making friends for solo females moving to Paris.

Get Connected!

It’s always important to build connections wherever to go. Not only will you form long-lasting relationships, but it might also help you with your career! And while dating apps like Tinder make it incredibly easy for people to meet up for a date, it can be harder to meet people for platonic friendship. But luckily, there are a few apps that will help you meet people and strike up friendships. Hey! Vina is a perfect example! Download the app and make yourself a profile. You can meet like-minded women who have also just moved to Paris and set up fun activities together. It’s an easy way to meet people and saves you the embarrassment of having to strike up a conversation in a bar.

Find a Roommate

There are so many beautiful apartments in Paris—with Marais and the Latin Quarter as some of the Parisian districts with a lot of them—for you to choose from when you move. And if you want to live alone then you’ll easily find a one-bedroom rental. However, living with a roommate is an easy way to make an instant friend. The Marais is one of our favorite areas to live as an expat in Paris and there are lots of two-bedroom apartments here where you could live with another woman.

Join a Bookclub

Paris is a literary lover’s dream. The writing place of so many novels and the birthplace of so many writers, moving here is a great excuse to unleash your inner book critic and join a book club. Take a look at the different books clubs in Paris organized by Meet Up and sign up to attend one. It might seem nerve-wracking, but within 15 minutes you’ll be so deep in a debate that you’ll forget those butterflies!

Find a Hobby

Are you a keen skateboarder? Or maybe you’re an amateur cook? Then find your tribe! Paris is a city of 2.1 million people, so you’re almost guaranteed to find a group of people with the same hobby as you, however niche it might be. Websites like Meet up are perfect for finding your tribe.

Get a Job

If you are moving to Paris to study, getting a job might not be at the top of your list, but it will really help you meet people and extend your network. Sociable places like bars and restaurants are always a great place to meet people, or perhaps look into joining women in a business network. You might end up with more than just a friend, but also a new business partner!
