Hi ladies! Looking to get creative & brainstorm a bit. 31 y/o female in NYC - most of my friends moved out of the city due to the pandemic. Not many are around to hang with (socially distanced of course). I tried hitting up some of my guy friends and they are always down to hang out but... I always have to make sure they remember it's platonic. ￼ Any ideas on how to make female friends during this time? I'm like...is there an app for that? ￼I am getting Zoom video catch up fatigue.

Trying to determine if I’m off-base: 9ish yrs of exp (7 + 2 post MBA). Focus in healthcare strat and org change/transformation — when folks call I’ve been asking for $175K base but the roles have topped out at $150K base.
