A world dating with new friends
Using dating sites to find love is inefficient and prone to failure.
We typically set the stakes too high, and centuries worth of societal tropes and expectations can cripple the authenticity of our interactions.
Complaining about being “friendzoned” is incredibly harmful to our relationships and can cripple our capacity for both healthy friendships and healthy relationships.
The friendship-first approach is not an isolated theory. Our existing friends have always been our best source of referrals.
The concept of being “friendzoned” on an implicit expectation of sex, because it posits friendship as a suboptimal outcome instead of being a worthy end in and of itself.The next week, I hosted a board game night and invited her so she could meet some of my friends.Over the course of our time together, we talked about plenty of our romantic and sexual preferences, but neither of us pressed for anything physical.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.
I mentioned my predicament to Jessica, and she excitedly revealed that her good friend had just moved to the city I was visiting.
