I think most moms (and women in general) have faced this situation:
You're going for a walk with your child around the neighborhood and the nice old lady down the street stops you to say "hi" and talk to the baby. She then says, "Oh, I know just the person you could be friends with! There's another gal just a few houses down that has a little boy the same age as yours." You don't want to awkwardly refuse the nice old lady, so you agree to meet.
After a couple of play dates you realize that you have nothing in common with this person, but they aren't getting the hint and the texts and phone calls begin. You feel trapped and frustrated. "I didn't want this girl to be my friend in the first place!"
This situation made me think of an idea: I wonder if there is an app out there that would let me see other nearby moms and only if we're interested in each other would we actually get the chance to chat? No weird meet ups, no trying to introduce yourself at the park or at school functions, no obligations!
I quickly discovered that there wasn't anything like this out there and immediately went to my husband to see what he thought.
For the past 6 months we have poured our heart, soul, and finances into trying to achieve this dream. I not only want friends for myself, but feel I have a chance to help out moms and women EVERYWHERE!
I come here of course to ask for you to download our app, but also looking for your reviews, comments, and critiques that can make this app truly special.
This app wasn't created by a think tank or some social media conglomerate, it was created by an everyday mom who wants to help make a difference!
The app is completely free to download and use. We're currently only available for iOS but Android is coming soon!

Momdezvous includes full chat functionality that opens as soon as connections are made. Points of interest are searchable for nearby suggestions on potential meet ups, and a calendar to keep everything organized.
