So I found this cool new app, but I feel a little silly about it.
You know the app Tinder? Of course you do, everyone does. Well, I have never used it because I fell in love with my husband at the age of 19 and have been with him for the past 6 years. I got to skip over the “swipe left or right” phase, or so I thought.
I’m 25, a happy newlywed and I love my job, but I am in that era of my life where all my friends have moved away, I am one of the youngest of my coworkers, and I live too far away from anyone to build a real friendship connection. This is a very hard time for me.
Being an ambivert, someone who has both the personality of an introvert and an extrovert, it is sometimes hard for me to make friends. I stumbled upon this app and at first, I laughed and thought it was so silly that people need an app to make friends, but then I checked myself and remembered that hey, you need help making friends too Emma; don’t be a jerk.
So I signed up.
And I swiped left a few times.
And then I swiped right a lot of times!
It is a really cool app.
You make a profile, take a couple of personality quizzes, right a fun bio with emojis, and then the fun part starts. You go through profiles of those located nearby and if you think they would be a good match for a friend, you swipe right, if you don’t think you have enough things in common, you swipe left.
My big irrational fear now is that I am going to swipe left on my potential lifelong best friend. Please no!
I don’t know if this will solve my problems, but I am hoping it will be a step in the right direction. I love my husband, but I really need some good girl time!
