Meeting People

Unread post by idk anymore »

Is it possible for people to meet other people during the pandemic without using dating apps because they are all 18+ (unless they aren't 18+ and then tell me about it plz) I'm so lonely and I really need to feel loved, or just wanted, especially right now

Are you talking about meeting other people in a specific kind of relationship context?

Well yes and no. I'm pretty sexual. To know someone has enough interest in me to have sex with me is enough to make me happy. Or, at least I think that. I wouldn't really know. Being in a relationship with someone would also be great because then I will feel loved. I feel like everyone deserves to be loved in someway or another, because its a pretty broad term, and my parents certainly aren't fulfilling that role. However, I also recognize that I'm young, and I have my whole life ahead of me, blah, blah, blah. So I would be happy with a true-blue friendship. It doesn't have to be in a romantic context if I felt they were actually a really really good friend that I can rely on.

If you're looking to connect with people and get to know them, something that can help is to look for online communities centered around a hobby or interest of yours. That way, you have a common starting point when getting to know people, and you're getting to talk about or engage in something you like while also making friends.
