Friends online not dating
Two big things happen when you’re alone: You’ll find that you’re more likely to talk to people and people are more likely to talk to you.
When you’re with your friends it can be intimidating for someone to come up to you, but when you roll solo it’s easier for someone who might want to get to know you to make their move. If you're shy about going out alone, bring a book or a journal at first, and take small steps to get comfortable with the feeling.
Consider trying not to look at your phone all night, and see what happens.
Remember how it was so easy to meet people when you were in school? So maybe being set up by your Aunt Edie is going to result in you being bored, because Aunt Edie never really understood you.
But if a friend wants to set you up on a date, DO IT.
Your friends know you well enough to know what type of person will click with you.
If the Instagram account Hot Dudes Reading has taught us anything, it’s that the subway is an oyster of attractive people who may be your ideal match.
(Of course, this doesn’t mean they’re all single.) Next time you see a hot person reading a book you love, consider striking up a conversation with them about it.
