I think someone who is smarter than me — which is a pretty wide field — should create this app, not just for those with social anxiety but for introverts everywhere. I would buy it. Hell, I could easily name 20 people who would buy it, and that’s just me. I’m sure everyone knows someone who would pay good money for this. The creator could make a fortune. Let’s make it happen, people! By tomorrow if at all possible, I have to go shopping …
hell yeah! lets do it! agreed!
Hahah – very funny – and serious too – was just driving near DC and it was more than partly crowdy….
great idea –
Have you heard of Google maps with “popular times”? My husband uses it all the time because he doesn’t like crowds nor the bodies that get in the way of his efficiency. I used it for a local yoga class discovering Monday, Wednesday & Saturday were the busiest days on average. I went on a Tuesday and was only 1 of 6 in that class — plenty of room for downward doggy and spine twists. 🙂

Anyway, it would be nice if most everyone started using this and adjusted their contribution to crowdiness accordingly; however, there are probably people who don’t mind places being busy or full of other people.
“The one who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone is likely to find themselves in places no one has ever been before.” Albert Einstein
I’ll save you the trouble of downloading, Wendy. If you need to go someplace, it will be crowded.
I have figured out when Walmart will be least crowded and go then to minimize chances of encountering clients and former clients, but still need to dress appropriately because I live in too small a community to not see people who know me.
