My good friend Carsten introduced this question some months ago, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since: How do you find your playmates? As a kid it was easy: Go up to any house on the road where a kid about your age lived, ring the doorbell, and ask “Wanna play?”
The need for playmates doesn’t go away as we get older, but the way we find them certainly changes. Adults don’t even call them playmaytes, we call them friends, acquaintances, colleagues, etc. But they still offer us the same space as playmates: A safe environment where you can try new things, be yourself and be surrounded by people you like, who like you.
So here’s my question to you: “How do you find your playmates?”. Think about it and comment if you like, I’m very curious to know what you think.
