Tips for Making Friends From The Founder Of Online Dating


Ich am one of the founders of the internet-based dating and will be turning 25 in 2020. I was a part of the development and launched Match and served as the website’s dating as well as relationship expert, and was their spokesperson for over a 10 years.

Today I’m a co-founder at Meetopolis ( Meetopolis is the very first social platform that is designed for dating as well as relations of all kinds and includes friendships. Meetopolis is the first social network for friendships and relationships. Meetopolis Friends help each other socialize and meet others through sharing of content, ideas sharing goals, and by asking questions, posting answers and even casting votes on issues such as who could be in a relationship with the stroker vibrators member or what a person should wear to the date.

While we built Match we believed that technology would help to meet people and establish friendships, making it easier for people to reach out to us no wherever they were. We advised those who were single to “cast a wide net” in the search of one special someone, believing that the more is better in the search of relationships. The discussion focused on dating as not a “numbers game,” suggesting that there is no reason to dismiss the person you are not sure is right for you because there was a multitude of thousands of potential partners behind them.

In some way in our journey, we have created the condition of isolation that is afflicting millions of people who are disconnected, instead of connecting with people using ever-changing gadgets and bells of our technology.

Given all of that, here are my tips for making friends in 2020

Get curious. Social media platforms have provided us with the opportunity to find out about someone’s background without having to do the social footwork that was previously required in order to get to know the person. When you meet someone face-to-face, it’s likely that you will meet you, and promptly share their personal stories. Your job is to make connections with people face-to-face, and then draw the story of the person. It’s simple by letting yourself be interested. What made this person get the job? What are the reasons why are they volunteering with this particular organization? What was the way this couple from the past first get together?

You can say “yes.” It really does not matter the event you’re invited to participate in. Bowling is similar to cycling acquainted with people. Movies and meals work just as the wine or an gallery tour to establish connections. “Yes” gets you a move towards friendship.

Take a break from technology and get involved in something. Meetings are the perfect opportunity to enjoy yourself and meet new people. Volunteering can help you connect with fellow like-minded folks in different circumstances.

Make a decision to take a risk. As with dating friends, to develop friendships it is necessary to start by making the first move. Request that people come to lunch with you after work. Share the phone number to someone with whom you enjoy a conversation with during the ride.

Host a celebration. I recently hosted a party that included a wide range of guests. A few were close friends some were neighbours and almost half of them were acquaintances I’d only had a brief encounter with, or were friends of my friends that I had wanted to know more. I was amazed by the number of guests who were kind enough to share with me that they had a blast enjoyed the evening and that they wish they could have done what I did.

Make yourself interesting. If you’re trying to establish a connection with your new acquaintances you should provide your thoughts on the best authors, hilarious tales from work and unique interests, as well as fantastic events to which you can invite people to.

Reject rejection Sometimes, budding relationships end in failure. Perhaps the chemistry between friends wasn’t evident, or more likely it was because of competing interests in the lives of people and there was there wasn’t enough connection for them to keep investing their time. This isn’t a big deal, and is a common occurrence. Move forward.
