I’m kind of there already and have been working on a story about my life with no friends, and it’s all good I suppose and admittingly my own fault. I’m introverted, agoraphobic and all around lame. Yeah.

I’ve never heard of Bumble BFF but I’m going to check it out. One of my 18 year old kids did “Strictly Platonic” on Tinder. She had a few bizarre meet-ups but did meet another girl her age and they now spend every weekend hanging out. At first I went all mom on her and was like, Dear Lord, no. Not Tinder! But it worked out for her proving the younger generation is more hip than I am.

I don’t live out in the boonies but I do live in the middle of cornfields with the strong stench of cow shit lingering in the air the moment I step outside my front door so I can relate to what you’re saying.
