Just digging around on the internet

Site of the Day: WhyGoSolo


I haven’t done one of these in awhile. This is site is kind of close to me. Why you ask? This site is a great tool for people who just moved to a new city. I have lived in almost 10 cities throughout my life. It is easier to meet people when you are younger and in school, but once you are out of school, it becomes more difilcult to meet new people with similar interests (and there is no way in hell I am going to use MySpace). is trying to help with meeting new people with similar interest. It is not a dating site, but more about connections and finding people who have similar interests.

WhyGoSolo is for making spontaneous offline connections happen. It is the ideal solution to quickly create one-on-one or small group connections for active participation in offline activities. And the perfect solution for bridging your online worlds (blogs, other social networking communities, Facebook) into offline interaction…

With WhyGoSolo you’re always able to find or post activities you’re interested in doing, and find someone to do your favorite activities with. Post on WhyGoSolo and watch the announcement propagate through the web with our applications, widgets, and partnerships throughout the web.

It doesn’t matter what your interests are: sports, the arts, culture, food, games, you’ll be able to find a like-minded person with the same interests to go and enjoy your favorite activities. No more wondering what to do on your day off, on the weekends, in the evenings or when you have some free-time. With WhyGoSolo… you can always find something to do with someone new and exciting.

It has similar features like myspace and facebook, but more of a focus on actual connections. I just created a profile. Check it out!

    Hi Tarik,

    Thanks for joining WhyGoSolo and the write-up. Wish we still had you in DC!! I hope WhyGoSolo will come in handy for you…particularly if you move again 😉 Anyway, hope I’ll eventually be running into you.

    I love your sites’ concept. I did not know you all are from DC. I really miss it out there. Much luck and success to your venture.

    P.s. I am also Captain but in the Army Reserves.
