Making friends is hard as you get older…even more so if you’re an introvert. It’s just so much work. Who asks who to hang out? Will she think I’m a lesbian who’s hitting on her? I just want to drink wine with someone…
We tend to overthink EVERYTHING. With so many thoughts going through our mind and all of the worst case scenarios coming up first, our natural instinct is to retreat. We don’t talk to people who we think look fun and interesting. How will we ever make friends?
In comes bumble BFF. This is the one and only time I’ll say “thank god I’m single! I would have never found this app” 😒😒😒😒
If you aren’t fimiliar with Bumble, it’s a dating app that happens to have a friend or BFF section within. When you set up your profile with Bumble you will have a chance to write a little about yourself.
THIS IS YOUR TIME.
Do not hold back, do not hesitate, do not skip this very important step….
Write the following:
“I am in introvert”
Or something along those lines! Tell people right away who you are! You have no idea how excited I get when I come across a profile that says the person who is an introvert. YASSSS WE DONT HAVE TO GO IN PUBLIC TO HANG OUT. You will attract friends simply from including introvert in your description.
And now your fear is setting in…
But what if people don’t like me? I saw a girl that looked so fun but we weren’t a match…
You’ll never know if someone doesn’t swipe right on you (match with you) because they could not be using the app anymore! You’ll only match with people who genuinely want to be your friend and swipe right on you.
Once you match with a friend, start a conversation! Have the introvert conversation as an ice breaker. Share stories, laugh and plan to meet. When you meet in person it will be like you’ve known them forever!
