LONDON — Making friends isn't easy when you're an adult.
Gone are the halcyon schooldays when friend-making opportunities were plenty, and social events never-ending.
I didn't feel pressured to come up with a super creative opening line; I was among friends after all; albeit potential ones. Three matches messaged me to tell me they loved the outfits I was wearing in my profile photos; a compliment I don't usually hear from anyone other than my mum.
It felt nice to receive a compliment that had no motive other than friendship, and I couldn't help but wonder if there was something in that.
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.
I chatted to a female friend about my feelings on this particular feature to gauge her thoughts on the matter.
"You're not swiping left on their face, you're swiping left on their lifestyle and personality.
Always keen to meet new people, I decided to give Bumble BFF a go to see if I could make a new best friend.
I knew this would be no mean feat, but the prospect of a new bestie was something worth working for.
