Remember the time when we would use the landline to call our classmates? How about booting up the internet via dial-up connection so you can join group chats? Good times.
We obviously live in a different time now where communication is easier and literally at the palm of our hands thanks to smartphones. We also have social media platforms where we can connect with our friends, acquaintances, and even people we just met the other day.
If you’re someone who wants to expand their social circle and meet new friends, you can always rely on Bumble BFF. This mode on Bumble, alongside its Date and Bizz modes, is a simplified way to connect with potential BFFs anywhere you go. You can bring them along to events, ask them to tour you in an unfamiliar city, or simply hang out with you because you have similar interests. It’s an easy way to build your barkada even further.
What do you do with newfound BFFs? We have a few ideas below inspired by our favorite activities from our younger years.
Make personalized bracelets
Nothing like cementing your friendship with beaded bracelets. You and your BFF can make them identical, or match them with your personalities.
Decorate and eat doughnuts
Who can say no to doughnuts, especially ones from Poison Doughnuts? The shop is known for their unique flavors. But this time, you can decorate and make them your own. Work with your BFF and even do a mini-contest on who makes the best-looking doughnut between the two of you.
Take photos together
It doesn’t matter if they’re from your phone or a film camera, taking photos and preserving memories are key to any hangout. Just don’t be that friend who always takes blurry shots, ‘kay?
Watch a throwback movie
Get cozy, grab some popcorn, and put on your favorite throwback movie from the ’80s, ’90s, or early ’00s. Plus points if you and your BFF know all the lines to the film. Also, if you’re watching a drama, you get to cry together.
On International Best Friend Day on June 8th, you can do all these at Preen.ph and Bumble BFF’s Throwback Movie Night at Bellas Artes Outpost Library, Makati City. We’re bringing back the vibe from our younger years while screening The Devil Wears Prada. So bring your friends, or go solo and make new friends over snacks, drinks, and beaded bracelets.
Stay tuned to our Instagram and Facebook event page for more details. We’d love for you to hang with us. *wink*
