Sure, you’ll still have to go up and say hi but it could be worth it. Me3 (Free) Meeting one on one can be a little intimidating so how about if there were three of you?

Meet My Dog (Free) Dog walkers know how easy it is to randomly talk to people while walking their pooch, but Meet My Dog just made it even simpler.Once you form a group of 2-4 people, you assign a status to the group, like “Happy Hour, anyone?” or “Going to a concert tonight.” Then, just like with regular Tinder, let the matching begin.
