Undeniably, one of the things the web is good at is bringing people together. Whether it’s dating, gaming, chatting or just sharing interests, the internet has fundamentally changed the way we all interact and find each other.

If you’re looking for people who are into the same things as you are, there are all kinds of niche sites you can search out.

For a more general directory-type solution, you could try meetup.com, a great way to find the things you’re into and the people who like them just as much as you do.

It’s simple, locally customisable and free, and you’d be amazed at the variety of different interests represented. From mountain biking groups to knitting circles and from ladies that lunch to classic car enthusiasts – it’s all here.

No more trawling through classifieds or staring at shop window noticeboards, now you can find people to share your passions with in just a few clicks.

If you have a useful, funny, or just plain weird website that you want to tell us about, drop us a line using our feedback form.
