What kind of Mum Tinder match would be right for you? This Mum had us giggling and totally loving her approach on finding mummy friends!

So the other night I was having a few wines with one of my besties: the husband.

And we were discussing how hard it is to make Mum friends. I mean it’s a bit hit and miss. Mainly miss. Mainly people get scared and don’t want to be my friend anymore.

It goes a little something like this:
You’ll meet a Mum friend, you’ll go out for coffee, my child will be wearing hand me downs covered in apple juice and your child would have been showered, so your already a step ahead of me.

My child tells your child “all mummy does is drink coffee and wine”. Your child promptly approaches us asking what “moscato” is, Meanwhile my child’s beaming that at the age of two she knows; “moscato is a white wine” ????

So then I try to convince you, unsuccessfully, that I only drink wine on Friday’s with awkward over the top laughter. Then you gather your things and we never look each other in the eye again.

Went really well I thought. Could have been worst. Wasn’t the “lock your child outside of the fence incident of 2014″.

So it got me thinking wouldn’t it be easier to make Mum friends if we had a “Mum friend tinder app?”

Seriously though. Swipe right if your compatible. Bam; Mum friend. Both rock up with children covered in apple juice and laugh about the fact you’ve already been pooped on twice and you’ll never be clean like you were before you had children.

For example my, “Mum friend” tinder match would be someone who enjoys too much wine (sometimes on more than one night of the week), insecure, over sharer, who sobs profusely when Ellen’s kind to people and keeps trying to eat healthy but also fried chicken is good.

My profile would read: Six kids, bombastic, under supervisor, hides in pantry often, cleans things to a satisfactory level and has to have children in bed by 7pm or else I turn into a pumpkin- at least that’s what I tell them. Who wouldn’t want to be my mum friend?!

Have I completely lost it; or do you need Mum friend tinder to?! I feel like we could all benefit from this.

  • I’m sure there is safer ways of forming Mum’s Groups. You need to meet in safe mutual locations if you decide to meet in person.

  • It would be an interesting idea!

  • First I’ve heard of tinder being used to find friends and not a partner. I’m sure it would have the same dangers as if you were partner hunting. Sad

  • A mum friend tinder sounds like a great idea. I wonder if it works.
    Finding a good mum friend isn’t always easy, but sometimes they come on your road without you making any effort for it.
