Wingman (not to be confused with the airport-hookup app of the same name), requires at least two people to play: a person trolling for dates, and a trusted, willing friend.If you try to scroll alone, it’ll instruct you to find a friend to do the hunting.
We’re two sisters that live across the country from each other and think it’s really hard to meet new friends - like really good friends, not acquaintances. I lived in Florida and although the people were friendly and I was very active socially, and I did make friends, it was very transitory.
We used to complain about it to each other and one day we decided we should stop complaining and do something about it. Now I live in New York and am still trying to find my niche in this community.
That’s been my trouble with being good at being alone. But while I’m enjoying it, loneliness is likely sneaking up behind me.
I don’t know it’s there until I’m suddenly paralyzed by isolation.
I find people seek romantic relationships instead of friendships to avoid that transitory feeling, and also to feel emotionally safer.
