Dating friendship all guyana
As Blaine notes, "Even if you take new classes, go for gym workouts, or start new hobbies, it’s still difficult to make that jump from acquaintance to friendship with the people you meet." Women who do not have a 'significant other' in their lives encounter additional friendship challenges.
Whether they are alone by choice, divorce, or death of a spouse, single women often find themselves out of sync with married friends who socialize as couples.
Safety is a major concern for Blain and Girlfriend Social.
Although her site gives women opportunities to share personal details (helpful in matching new friends), she leaves it up to each participant to decide how much to reveal about herself.
Without any controls or means of regulating its users, Craigslist and other online community-based bulletin boards are a hit-or-miss option.
In comparison, a membership-based internet friendship site makes it easy and safe for women to reach out to each other and search for friends who would be most compatible.
Twenty-seven percent of young adults (18-24 years old) and 12% of adults aged 55–64 years old report that they have used online dating.
One of the largest social networking sites exclusively for females 18 and older, Girlfriend Social (GFS) enables users to seek out and connect with like-minded women in hundreds of cities and communities across the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.

What if moving or marriage has changed your circumstances, and you're looking for new connections and new girlfriends?
Wouldn't it be nice if a website facilitated those meetings the same way dating sites do?
