I have some interesting information to share with you all today. Don’t know if it is really something anyone will care for, but here goes nothing. I have joined an app called Bumble, it is for making friends, dating and business. I am taking part in Bumble BFF addition. Nowadays I am having the hardest time making friends, it’s not the same as it used to be when in school where you can just talk to the person next to you and BAM! Friendship! I was venting to my little sister about it when she made a suggestion for me. Bumble BFF.
At first, I was nervous about this, I didn’t know how I felt about making friends online. I mean this went against everything that I was taught in my childhood. The internet is a scary place. Don’t talk to strangers on there, they’re bad! I mean, it is scary in its own right anyone can be anyone online am I right? But I figured if I could meet my boyfriend online (yup, I met him on Tinder, no judge-y!), then I can make friends online too, right? And I’m basically writing my diary online as well so I can try to make friends that way too I suppose.
So I have been a member of this app for about two weeks now, and I haven’t made a crap ton of friends, but I have made one that really seems to speak my language. Her name is Lily (no further details will be released on whom she is). We have a lot in common in tastes of music, movies, creative fields of careers. It’s nice it get along with someone again. I think I am still learning how to be a good friend. It’s not the easiest thing. I’m not in contact with anyone from my two high school’s that much anymore, and the people I went to college with were mainly acquaintances. So here I am using Social Media as a way to find some close friends.
I think that this is an interesting approach for our generation using the internet to make friends. It’s for some reason not easy making friends the old fashion way now. So we need to use what we know to find them. Not to say this is the only way, and it’s not for everyone, but it really is something to consider.
Well, that’s all I have to say on the matter, I just wanted to share this with you all. Wish me luck in making some really great friends :).
Until next time…
