We recommend trading with a friend, but you can use Reddit through the PokémonOperations subreddit. This is generally a safe path to trade Pokémon, but make sure you read the rules, guidelines and suggestions before starting an operation. Make sure any communication is done on the subreddit and not via DM, but keep in mind that you are trading with strangers at your own risk.
