Recently, my friend Tony sent a group text inviting our gang to meet up for drinks with him and a girl he’d been out with a couple times.He’d told his lady friend that some of his friends were coming to meet the two of them.The idea behind the site is that you join, mingle with new people, make friends and meet their connections.You can also have a bunch of friends join to meet new people and scour others' connections to find a potential love match for you or themselves.All women are different, and while one may warrant an intro after the second date because you are head over heels for her (or maybe simply because you already made plans to watch the game with your buddies but want to eat nachos with her, too), another might not slide into your buddies’ IRL DM’s until after a few months of dating.A good guy friend of mine told me it’s really important that his dates meet his friends because he “finds girls much more attractive” when his friends like them.Parties are always great places to meet people, but since most people don't have the opportunity or time to attend one every day, websites like Friendlylook, The Datable and let you browse your friends' friends.
The short answer is: whenever and however feels right for you, but women are strange creatures and short answers don’t often do us justice.
She left pretty quickly thereafter, clearly uncomfortable and more shy than the rest of us. Whenever I’m about to introduce a guy to my group, I give a quick rundown: Rosa’s in med school and I used to dance with her, Abby is my best friend from home and is based in D. These tidbits can then easily become conversation “So Rosa, Lizzie tells me you used to dance together.” Boom. The bar was too loud, Tim’s friends were standing, mine were sitting, and neither group had any interest in moving.
It devolved into us standing between them, me talking to his friends and then mine, Tim talking to mine and then his.
If you want to reach out to someone on the site, all communication is free.
If you're the bold type, you can broadcast updates that go to everyone who meets your criteria on the site.
Currently, the team behind Friendlylook is seeking funds on Indiegogo, the crowd-funding platform, in order to build more features.
