Would you go through all the effort for a stranger?
The internet is a wonderful place. Not only does it give us access to all the information and entertainment we need, it is also a place where many have developed relationships with others. This was certainly the case for Danielle Haley, who downloaded the Bumble BFF app shortly after moving into a new town.
Danielle realised that she didn’t have too many friends in
the new city and hoped the app would introduce her to like-minded people. So,
she downloaded the app and started swiping in the hopes of finding some new friends.
During the process, Danielle ended up matching with a woman who happened to be getting married two days later. After the two started chatting, the woman revealed that she was in need of one more bridesmaid to fill her wedding party and asked Danielle if she would be up for the challenge.
Sharing her experience on TikTok, Danielle says: "I moved to this town back in January, and I know three people from my programme for school and they all just went home for Spring Break, so I was like, I'm still here, I'm gonna go on Bumble BFF and see if I can make some friends.”
She adds: "So this morning, Friday morning, I'm sitting there swiping on
Bumble BFF and I see this girl and she is talking about her wedding that's on
Sunday, and I was like, 'Oh my gosh tell me'. So she starts telling me and
she's actually like, 'I need a bridesmaid', and I'm like 'Oh, tell me more'. So
she did and she was like 'Will you be my bridesmaid?' And I was like, yes I'll
be your bridesmaid for a wedding that's in two days!”
Danielle continues: "She sends me all of her colour schemes and the dresses of the other girls and she's like can you go to David's Bridal and get a bridesmaid dress, so I did and now I'm gonna be her bridesmaid."
In a follow-up video, Danielle does a Q&A with the bride and groom and asked her what went through her mind when she asked her to be a bridesmaid. "We moved here, we don't know anybody and we figured you don't talk to the people in your wedding for the rest of your life anyways...,” the bride says, adding that she chose all her bridesmaids through the app.
Seems the experience certainly brought the two closer and Danielle says that she still messages the bride today and are still meeting up.
