party of four is a new smartphone app that solves the problem of making new friends that many foreign couples face. Whenever you move to a new country, it’s often difficult to make friends. The Covid-19 pandemic has made it even harder to connect with other couples. Social gatherings are restricted.
First Amsterdam… then other Dutch cities
The Party of 4 app was initially launched in Amsterdam (April 2021) with the goal of eventually rolling it out to all Dutch cities. Party of 4 is the first couples-only app to find other great couples in your area. Find couples who are close to you, who are in the same stage of life and who have similar interests. It’s for finding platonic friendships only, and it’s strictly enforced. Not an app for swapping!
