Can dating find friend search
Here’s what I learned: Making a Friend-Dating Profile is Super Weird.
Setting up a dating profile is pretty standard — you choose the photos with your best angles so your potential love interest knows you’re hot AF.
Kaitlyn Shiels Kait is a freelance writer and digital marketing coordinator living in Toronto.
She believes that it’s always time for a mimosa and hasn’t quite mastered the whole ‘adulting thing’.
After much deliberation, my go-to line ended up being, “Hey girl! ” Creative, I know, but it worked at sparking conversation. This is sort of a given when you’re forming friendships using first impressions based on appearance and a few select words.
I’m sure I came across countless ladies with awesome friend potential, but just because I didn’t like something in their photos or bio, I silently rejected them.
As someone who’s moved cross-country quite a few times, I’ve had to become accustomed to putting myself out there in order to make connections and form new friendships.
I joined a sorority, socialized with people at work and was always the first to introduce myself at a party.
A few others refused to meet up in a public place and instead insisted I come alone to their apartment for drinks.It felt more like an actual date than a meet-up with a friend.I was nervous, afraid I would do or say something stupid and ruin my chances of social happiness.But after a few minutes of small talk, we began to hit it off and spent the next few hours laughing over coffee. My success using the app is pretty much limited to that one connection.We’ve since become pretty good friends, so I’d mark this one down as a win for Bumble BFF. Though I did talk with a handful of other women and even met a few of them IRL, I quickly realized that actually forming true friendships is a phenomenon that’s few and far between.
