”I think it’s really comforting to hear from so many other women in their 20s and 30s who just graduated college or moved to a new city and are having a hard time meeting people.
I recently fell out with my best friend from high school, and my best friend from college lives two hours away and is about to have a baby with her husband.
The site is dedicated to punks, emos, goths, rockers and all types of alternative people.
I carefully made sure to list all of my favorite movies ("The Royal Tenenbaums," "Breathless," "Annie Hall"), my favorite TV shows ("Community," "Girls," "Breaking Bad," "Mad Men," "Louie"), my favorite bands (LCD Soundsystem, Matt & Kim, the Magnetic Fields), my favorite authors (Jonathon Franzen, Joshua Ferris, Jane Austen, those are just the J’s). I think I had some weird fantasy in my head that I was going to magically be matched up with someone on the site who shared all of these interests, who would encourage my shopping and drinking habits and force me to take up Pilates with her, who would be pretty but not threateningly so.
I also listed all the activities I do (baking, shopping, drinking) and the activities I totally plan on doing one day (tennis, yoga, running). Basically, the personality of Emma Stone with the face of Emma Stone’s unknown cousin. I’m not saying this because I’m hung up on looks, I’m saying it because if I met Emma Stone’s face I wouldn’t be able to befriend it, I’d have to marry it.)And she would totally live right by me in the middle of nowhere!
All you have to do is complete your profile with a bit about you, upload a picture and complete your favorite music.
So if you're looking for a punk girlfriend maybe an emo boyfriend or a gothic partner Alt Scene is a great place to start.
That brings me to the number one downside of the site for me (besides my wildly unrealistic expectations).
One of the hardest hurdles for me in trying to make friends after college is that I live far out in the country, about 20 minutes outside of the nearest (very small) town.
