Make friends dating
I moved to New York less than two years ago and have been trying to expand my circle as I build roots in the city.As a very extroverted person, I believe the more people around, the merrier (and richer) life is.That said, I was confident friendship was going to be different on the apps.People would be chiller because the relationship stakes were lower. Still, I didn't want to play mind games with my future besties.With no other criteria, I swiped right on guys who I found attractive and could write a literate sentence in their About Me, the same method I used when trying to date.Going in, I thought the experiment was limited: Because these were dating apps, I couldn't access the pool of straight girls, those least likely to see me as a romantic target.
With photo-heavy, information light profiles, the apps had me frustrated within five minutes.
Still, I got matches who would usually say nothing or just "Hi." Those who did say more provided some strange conversations. So where would you spend a Sunday afternoon in New York? No one else was that refreshingly direct), I responded with Central Park and waited.
