With the ongoing pandemic there has been growing number of individuals who are staying disconnected from the social scene for obvious or genuine reasons. Loneliness has been already an ongoing issue across the world and pandemic is not helping with the overall situation.
We have already observed that several members are starting to engage and staying actively connected with each other via virtual means on our site and apps! This is a great thing! This is in a way what we call virtual buddy system (Buddies).
We wanted to extend the idea and share it with you all in the cuddle community that each of you should take this as an opportunity to extend your reach to help each other in ways possible. If anything good that can come out from this pandemic, let’s build a stronger buddy system virtual or otherwise! Help each other!
Cuddle Connect community is not just about cuddling! It is also about building valuable platonic buddy connections! Especially for the loners out there, don’t be lonely, build your virtual or otherwise buddy system. An outlet that helps you when you need it!
Outside of Cuddle Community, buddy system is not a new concept. It’s a very popular concept in the industry or even in schools!
What is Buddy System (Buddies)?
The buddy system is a procedure in which two (or in some cases even more than two) individuals, the “buddies”, operate together as a single unit so that they are able to monitor and help each other. As per Merriam-Webster, the first known use of the phrase “buddy system” goes as far back as 1942. Webster goes on to define the buddy system as “an arrangement in which two individuals are paired (as for mutual help).”
What is the purpose of our buddy system?
Our Buddy System, has simple goal – Don’t be lonely! Don’t hold it within! Find an ear who listens to you! Stay connected with each other virtual and beyond (when possible or needed)!
