Lori launched getconnectedaf.com on her one-year soberversary as a way to find alcohol-free friends in real life. She built the site with a placeholder for the search function and started sharing the site in online sober communities. Almost immediately, from halfway across the nation, Kate volunteered her IT expertise to plan and build the search functionality that allows alcohol-free friends all around the world to get connected. The result was bigger and better than originally anticipated, and we are beyond excited to contribute such a powerful tool to the sober community.
The opposite of addiction is connection. But it’s hard to find new alcohol-free friends when most social events revolve around drinking. GetConnectedAF is a place to find like-minded, alcohol-free friends. Whether you connect online with someone on the other side of the world or you discover someone in your own city to hang out with, you’ll benefit from the support and friendship of people who get it.
There is no cost to get connected. Our goal is to help foster friendships and build support systems. We want people to sign up and find their tribe without any fees or membership expenses. And in return, we ask only for your word-of-mouth referrals. Share this site with alcohol-free friends and in online communities. The bigger the site, the more connections being made.
