Ever since the book came out, I've received feedback about how it's made women think about friendships throughout their lives, as well as who is in their lives now. The goal of this blog is to open up and create a dialogue about friendships: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Each week I will post my thoughts, experiences, as well as various articles, topics or quotes that I feel are important when examining female friendships. Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to hearing from you!

Finding Friends on a Dating Website? Wait, What?!

Good friends are hard to find. We all know this fact, especially as we get older. In Looking for friends on a dating app is awkward. But it worked. by Abby Green, we get an inside look at one brave woman's experience using Bumble BFF.

An excerpt:
"Meeting new people and facing the fear of rejection doesn’t get easier when it’s platonic rather than romantic, I realized. But on this friend-date, it felt like we were saying what we meant — and romantic dates don’t often feel that way.

With friendship, we have many vacancies and can fill those spots with different types of people. But with romantic love, people are usually looking for one person, which means there’s a lot of pressure to present the best version of yourself on dates."

In today's day and age, it seems we're more open to online dating and meeting people in less traditional ways. Why not meet friends this way?

Would you consider trying this app?
