Meet friends not dating
That unspoken confidence might even help you score a few friend dates along the way! I Dare you not to find something that suits you in the list below.When I originally set my location parameters to only a few miles, there were for sure less, but as I increased it to span basically the whole city of Chicago, I was in just about an endless pool of potential brunch buddies. ), I either got no response back or we said two lines and they stopped responding.However, I got to a point after a while where I pretty much swiped right on everyone regardless of if it seemed like we’d be a good fit. Yeah, this is where my experience begins to dwindle a little bit from apps dedicated to dating. I noticed a lot of my matches were looking for roommates or were promoters at clubs and wanted me to “get a group of girls together” for a free table and drinks.So, I decided to take my knack for dating apps and see if I could make some friends.
While I didn’t really make any new friends from the app, it got me in a mindset to take chances and meet people IRL, so I can’t say the experience was totally unsuccessful.So that leaves me, a 20-something in Chicago, a little lonely.And if you know me (ENTJ all the way), I don’t handle too much alone time all that well.I took myself to the movies (everyone needs to see ASAP), I sat at a coffee shop without my laptop for once, and I made brunch for myself at home instead (talk about a money saver! I also encouraged myself to reach out to people I normally wouldn’t.My photographer friend and I did hang out but the only pictures involved were the ones we took of our cheese board.
