Friendship on line dating
Tinder was the worst of them: All I saw were a couple of group shots (but which guy are you, Steve?
A friend finder app, after all, didn't seem too far away with Tinder for cats and other spin-off matching services debuting. Lyke Me, an app three Michigan State University students have designed to match people based on interests, is launching this fall.) On a personal level, I wanted more friends.
With no other criteria, I swiped right on guys who I found attractive and could write a literate sentence in their About Me, the same method I used when trying to date.
Going in, I thought the experiment was limited: Because these were dating apps, I couldn't access the pool of straight girls, those least likely to see me as a romantic target.
That said, I was confident friendship was going to be different on the apps.
People would be chiller because the relationship stakes were lower. Still, I didn't want to play mind games with my future besties.
It wasn't, however, easy to find a great friend match.
