How do I make friends through GirlCrew?
We believe the most rewarding friendships, happen offline, and nearby. So when you join GirlCrew, it's easy to organise get togethers that are open to anyone in the group to come along to. Browse the events in your local group, or post one if there are none that interest you or suit your schedule. If you'd prefer to get to know people a little bit online before you meet in person, why not introduce yourself with a post, comment on the event post you're interested in, or simply join in some of the chats and Lols on any post.
What age is GirlCrew for?
Most GirlCrew members are in their late twenties and thirties, all members however must be over 18 years of age. We've had women upwards of 70s make friends though so everyone over 18 is very welcome to make the most of the groups. If you'd like to request a group for under 18s in your area, submit your request here.
How does it work?
Firstly you sign up to GirlCrew. Then you select a city as your Home Crew – this is the group you'll have quickest access to via the ‘Home’ button in your menu. Most people select the city they're based in to stay up to date with the fun happening locally. After that, you can also follow other groups by clicking the star next to them.
If you love the events another member posts, you follow them! In future changes to the app, you’ll see more of the stuff from people you follow in your newsfeed.
Your newsfeed shows the most recent posts and events from your Home Crew, and groups you follow.
The Events button in menu will list events from all the groups you follow and your Home Crew. These are divided by Other and Attending.
To see only events from a single group, select ‘Events’ at the top of that group’s page.

Do I have to use my real name?
Yes. As GirlCrew is set up to meet people in real life, offline, and begin friendships, we find that people are more comfortable, at ease and friendly knowing the real name and face attached to the online profile.
