Anything you list is really only helpful if people believe you. going to a dating site to look for friends (I was looking for scuba diving buddies). But basically, I was tired of chancing it booking charters on a boat solo and "hoping" someone would buddy up with me (or another buddy team would let me tag along as a third).
Someone told me to use Po F since they have the option to look for "friends only." I figure, well, if the site has that option for "friends only", why not try it.
“The awkwardness seems even more intense than dating sites because it doesn't align with the old, time-worn trope of the Boyfriendless Lady Who Has Lots Of Female Friends But Just Wants Love,” wrote Jezebel’s Ann Breslaw.

The number of users online dating sites like Match.com, OKCupid, JDate and e Harmony now attract suggests that any stigma people once felt around looking for love online has lifted.
One weird thing though, the site made me pick something along the lines of heterosexual even with the "looking for friends" option. I picked looking for a man since most divers are men--at least where I live. So I figured I'd have a better chance of finding someone if I searched for "male friends." I quickly learned that friends on Po F isn't thought of as platonic friends.
I dropped out of Po F since I wasn't finding scuba buddies, I was finding men who though I was just looking to hook up for a night or something. And I was having a hard time finding someone--and yes, I tried a scuba buddy forum first.And he wasn't the only one who ghosted me after the big reveal.During the month that I used social dating apps to find new buddies, I sent countless unrequited salutations, offered up priceless New York City travel recommendations, and even gave my number to a guy who wanted to discuss first amendment rights. When I started, I believed that, with millions of people just searching for company online, I'd easily find my new bestie or at least someone down for a platonic hang.A friend finder app, after all, didn't seem too far away with Tinder for cats and other spin-off matching services debuting.

I mean, if they don't believe you when you say you're just looking for friends, why would they believe you when you say you're heterosexual? I guess I naively expect people to be honest about what they're looking for.
