Nonetheless, three days in, I couldn't help but feel that I was a long way off making a new best friend.Good vibes aside, my conversations with the women had not progressed beyond smalltalk — even if it was ego-boosting smalltalk. I powered on, swiping right on every match to maximise my chances of meeting the friendship equivalent of "the one".Just like Tinder, if you haven't made up your mind about a potential match, you can click on their profile to see more photos, and to read a very brief bio — that is, if they've written anything.I chatted to a female friend about my feelings on this particular feature to gauge her thoughts on the matter.At age 27, the endless opportunities to add to my existing circle of friends have dried up, and finding time to fit in social events is a constant challenge. Research carried out by the Mental Health Foundation suggests 18 to 34 year olds are more likely to feel lonely more often than the over-55s, while last year the Office for National Statistics found London to be the loneliest capital city in Europe.Dating site Bumble — dubbed the "feminist Tinder" — is trying to change that with the launch of its new feature Bumble BFF, which enables you to find a friend, rather than a date, online.I have to say, it felt a little strange to swipe left and essentially decide whether I wanted to be friends with someone based on their profile photo.Never, in real life, have I rejected a potential friend based on their appearance in a couple of photographs.
For the traditionalists: You'll always have Scrabble.Even if it felt a little mean to swipe left, I knew that if I were to have any chance at a long-lasting, meaningful friendship, we needed to be compatible.As I swiped right, I began matching with other friend-hunters.Efforts dedicated to making friends are on the rise, with dating-like apps such as VINA, and Wiith.
Always keen to meet new people, I decided to give Bumble BFF a go to see if I could make a new best friend.
And, despite my burning desire to make a new friend, I found myself growing slightly frustrated by the sluggish pace of the messaging process. While doing so, I spotted a colleague of mine and — of course — immediately swiped right.
