Struggling to meet the kinds of people you like?
Sick of sleazy dating/hookup sites when you just want to make friends?
(or places that claim to be about friendship, when everyone's clearly just there to get laid?)
Try Wusoup:

A random chat community,
with substance.

Meet
smart,
interesting,
friendly people
that want to chat
with other cool people.
No sleaze, creeps, ads, or other bullshit.
Just awesome, real people.
Human to human.
It's fun :-)
“Hanging out on Wusoup always leaves me feeling inspired in some way - meeting interesting people from different places, getting cool recommendations for books & films, and chatting about deep stuff with new friends is all-in-all pretty awesome. Definitely a pick-me-up! It's amazing to see so many great people (and NO tools!) in a single online space. Happy to be a part of this supportive community.” - Kim

The problem

There's awesome people all around you. And also... a lot of noise. So how can you organically connect with the people you actually want to meet?

Social networks keep you trapped in your old social circles. And dating/hookup sites suck for actually getting to know people, or making new friends.

Traditional random chat / cam sites don't help either, quickly degenerating into cesspools.

Serendipity, the app

Wusoup's different. It's a small, private community and a new way to chat with random strangers with a strict focus on quality over quantity.

It's random chat, without the usual sleaze.

It's about chance encounters with great people: meeting fun, friendly strangers that are here specifically to chat.

The anti-Tinder

Wusoup's not another skeevy dating/hookup app. There's enough of those already (good grief).

It's about chat for chat's sake. For fun, for making new friends, for good conversation.

Wusoup puts a new spin on the excitement of old-school anonymous internet chat.

A strictly creep-free zone

Chatting to purely random strangers can be fun, until it isn't. Trolls and other creeps tend to accumulate and ruin the experience.

So Wusoup's randomness is backed by a smart machine-learning algorithm that helps to keep out idiots, and to maximize message reply rates, even as the community grows.

Which means a uniquely friendly, uniquely active group of people from around the world.

Users violating the rules are downvoted and banned.

Zero bullshit

No spam, scams, lies, ads, bots, clickbait, tracking toolbars, microtransactions, contact harvesting, bogus user numbers, fake messages, or other nonsense.

Wusoup's handmade by one guy (hi!).

It's a passion project :-)

Users that actually reply

No zombie accounts!

A big problem with other attempts at friendship sites that I've seen: no one ever replies to messages!

In contrast, Wusoup does everything it can to maximize real message reply rates.

One example: fake, unresponsive, duplicate, and low-quality accounts get auto pruned - so you don't need to wade through muck to find a good conversation.

Again: quality, not quantity.

Privacy, anonymity

Wusoup doesn't tie you to your Facebook or Google identities.

Share whatever info you'd like about yourself, or don't. Completely nuke all your data at any time. And no need to fight obnoxious defaults: everything's private unless you say otherwise.


Wusoup's probably not for you if:

✗ You want a dating/hookup app

Users posting stuff that'd fit a dating/hookup site will be banned, simple. There's enough places online if you're looking for that kind of thing. Wusoup's a refuge for the rest of us.

✗ You want to filter who you see

Wusoup's about spontaneity and surprise - not micromanagement :-)

✗ You want video/room/group chats

Wusoup rocks 1-on-1 text chat only, sorry. This is just the best way to get the kind of substantial personal interactions that Wusoup's all about. Also, words are nice - we like them here.

✗ You're going to be creepy / try hit on people

Honestly, you'll just get downvoted and banned.

✗ You don't think funny hats are funny

Feedback from users

“This is honestly the FIRST friend-making site that didn't get over taken by creepy dudes asking to marry me online. WuSoup is freaking amazing! I've spent years trying to find people who actually like talking and WuSoup brings it all together. Ahhh yissssssss.”
“I've found some interesting people on here, and also interesting hair as well. Seriously. A lot of people here have great hair.” - Leaf
“I like wusoup a lot. There aren’t that many users active (although the user base is slowly growing), but all of them know that that the site is focused on casual talking and making friends. I myself made a couple friends I regularly talk with on the site.” - Daniella
“I was looking for a place to make friends, and Wusoup claimed to be that place, so I joined. Similar networks are usually hit and miss, but it's been great so far, and so have the people. A+ would recommend.” - Kay
“So far I've been on here a day and this is by far the best experience I've had online. Ever. Period. (and you can quote me on that)” - ArrJayBee
“Wusoup is pretty rad. I've gotten the chance to tell a lot of people about the transformers.” - Tori
“Hanging out on Wusoup always leaves me feeling inspired in some way - meeting interesting people from different places, getting cool recommendations for books & films, and chatting about deep stuff with new friends is all-in-all pretty awesome.

“it's nice to have a website community where you can happily talk to guys without worrying about being chatted up: everyone is here for friendship and generally fun conversation as opposed to looking for hookups or dirty pictures. The algorithm that shows you if other people have downvoted the person you're talking to is great because you get a sense of who is likely to actually be a nice person instead of a bit creepy or antagonistic or anything like that. The entire time I've been on here (since there were maybe 100 people signed up), I've never been chatted up or asked for a nude or anything like that once. I've never had bad conversations; obviously some have fizzled out, but I haven't had any actual negative experiences! I think this website is great, and thank you for making it and working so hard on it :)”
“all what you said about your website wasn't just nonsense”

tl;dr: Wusoup's actually pretty cool.
Take a look
(weeeee!)
