Dating site for meeting friends
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.
Turns out the apps didn't create that restriction though: we did.
"If you're looking for friends, I would just not write anything about that until the very end if they ask you a question about it," she said. "On OKCupid, they ask you 'you should message me if…' and I would say something really casual there like, 'You think having a drink would be fun.' Use words like 'fun,' which is an indicator of more for social than anything else." She didn't have a lot of faith in my whole friend-getting scheme, really.
Tinder was the worst of them: All I saw were a couple of group shots (but which guy are you, Steve?
), ab selfies, and if I was really lucky, a suit shot.
I began my experiment in mid-August, downloading Tinder, Hinge, and Coffee Meets Bagel.
I was familiar with the apps beforehand: I used them for a month in summer 2013 when they were new and the It Thing among my friends, the source of all our war stories.
