Many of my Asia friends still hangout with their high school friends. Not like you see here in the states... I totally understand what this app is about

The Japanese are working on reducing their own population far more efficiently than any outside foreign power.

Go figure.

So Japanese meetup.com phone app?

IMHO if old Japanese women where tech savvy enough, an app similar to this would reduce elderly depresssion quite a lot.

There's ways around this...

Isn't there already an app like this called Bumble BFF?

Sign up, pretending to be a woman.  Arrange to meet one or more of your new friends and show up as yourself. Hang around and then move in and start chatting.  When they mention they were supposed to meet someone who did not show up act surprised and say that the same thing happened to you!  Go back to her place, have wild passionate sexy, get married, have 13 kids, and become a traveling music group.  Win.

Not to go too offtopic here, but Japanese women are awesome. And it's not just the whole cultural subservience thing either. That is great, and it makes for happy marriages, but that sideways hoo-ha REALLY makes for a happy marriage, IYKWIM.

An app that makes them coagulate? Shoot, bro, that's my jam.

WANT!!

Finding friends as an older woman is hard.
 
2017-09-13 12:59:12 AM  
Is there an app for men that tells them where the roving gangs of Japanese spinsters are located?
 
2017-09-13 04:17:31 AM  
Platonic friends? Like, real flesh and blood IRL friends? No such thing.
 
2017-09-13 04:50:34 AM  
Sorry lesbians?
 What part of schoolgirl years don't you get, subby?

Not clear on how you have 13 kids when your new friends are also men pretending to be women.  I mean, you can still have wild passionate sexy if that's your thing.

Actually this might help people get into relationships.  In many Asian cultures a girl always take a trusted friend along on dates, at the start of a relationship, to both act as chaperone and to give an opinion as to rather the guy is a good man or a d-bag.  If you do not have such a friend you forego dating.

They were pen-pals with Geoff Downes. It counts.

Dunno why, but it was comforting to see the old "NOT YOURS" meme in a headline again.  It's been awhile.

It's really sweet that you think an app can do that.

Veritas333: Isn't there already an app like this called Bumble BFF?


lol. there are literally thousands of other apps that do this, minus the "specifically for elderly japanese women" part.
For nearly every app that gets a press-release jizzing over its "new and innovative" way of doing something, there are usually many other pre-existing ways to do that "new innovative" thing.
Yawn.

lol. this app will get WAY more traffic from nasty men who want to exploit lonely old women than it will from lonely old women.
I do admire the naivete of people who think that technology will ever be good for anything except helping humans indulge more efficiently in typically shiatty human behavior. That must be so fun.

dewihafta: Finding friends as an older woman is hard.


... because all the "friends" you had before you were an older woman stabbed you in the back, which is why you don't have those skanks around anymore.

Friendship,like all human contact, is an overhyped, unrealistic goal, implanted by corporations to mske you think that if you just buy a few more products or do a few more good deeds, your life too can contain all the genuine warmth and closeness of a commercial for I-phones or frozen foods.

DO NOT WANT.

Seriously, for your own sanity, do not want this false reality of human companionship. It will hurt less on the long run if you DO NOT WANT it.
