Have you ever wondered how you’re supposed to make new friends?
Yes, you know that connecting and having friendships is important.
But where do people meet new people anymore?
You can try heading to your local gym to take a group fitness class, join a local book or hiking group, or even volunteering at a local nonprofit.
Or, you can do what my new coworker did and find new friends with Bumble BFF!
Not Just a Dating App
You may have heard of Bumble, but did you know that it’s not just for dating? In fact, you can literally find your new best friend using the app.
Discover people near you that love the same hobbies you have, might be new to the city, or just are looking for someone to talk to.
You might not know, but Bumble was started by female founder Whitney Wolfe Herd. Meant to be a “feminist dating app” where women make the first move (and they work hard to protect the women on the app), they also put a lot of stake into the power of connectivity.
With the app and Bumble BFF, they encourage integrity, kindness, equality, confidence, and respect during all stages of any relationship — whether online or offline. They aim to be the app where people go to learn how to establish and maintain healthier connections.
This includes your friendships!
How Bumble BFF Works
The great thing about Bumble BFF is that either person can make the first move. With the BFF setting, you’ll see only those who are the same gender as you. Once you swipe on someone and match, you can get the conversation rolling!
Focus on the things you have in common from your profile, give them a respectful compliment to say hello, or even use one of Bumble’s recommended conversation starters.
The great thing about using an app like Bumble BFF is that it can break you out of your comfort zone and help you meet people you may never have otherwise.
Isn’t it time to see what great people live in your city and make a new best friend?
