Last month, I finally had the courage to try something new (because I was bored)!
Guess what I did?!
Well, I tried signing up to an online dating website. lol~
At first, it was all just a random act of boring-ness so I thought “Why the hell not?”
I checked several profiles. Joined the other active members in the forum by posting random videos and gifs, and welcoming newbies like me. Sending out simple “Hi’s” and “Hello’s” to people who are only looking for friendships.
After a week of doing so, I finally MADE some friends online which is kind of revitalizing to me because I know I’ve been working too hard, “alone” in my own room and personal bubble.
It was so nice to hear stories from different people around the world. I got to know cultures, places, some plans, some types of people, perspectives, etc.
This made me realize that I am missing a lot of things in this life. And a little part of me still can’t believe that something so random will turn into something wonderful and englightening.
If you asked me several months to join an online dating website, I would surely be offended and give you a big “NO!” But if you will ask me now if I will recommend someone to try online [personal] forums, I will encourage them to give it a go.
You will never know why something exists until you try it for yourself.
I’m glad I did this.
