Looking for friends in southampton/hampshire

Hello, I'm new to this looking for friends around southampton or anywhere in hampshire. I suffer with Borderline Personality Disorder,Depression and Anxiety. Just feel very alone so would be nice to make some friends.

Lonely hoping to make genuine friends

I'm here to talk with anyone who is up for it, via email text or phone call, I am a great listener and very easy going, perhaps we can all help each other by simply reaching out and making good friendships.

Hampshire Support

I would like to dedicate this group to finding like-minded people in the local area. I think many of you will agree that your struggles are less daunting if you have someone who understands you. About the group: My aim is to just get local people in touch with one another, maybe find some common ground. I would like to be able to set up meet ups eventually but hey, one step at a time! I hope that others will find some comfort here.

Women's group London

Thought it would be nice to start up a girly group :) We could meet up for tea, spa days, dinner etc! Something different each week to meet new people and generally lift each others spirits.

Looking for a Gymn Buddy in West Midlands

I have anxiety and so I constantly worry about what people think about me and this has really tested my friendships and relationships. I often do not reply to friends txts and phonecalls because it always leads to an invite to meet up and I am tired of making the same excuses or dropping out at the last minuite. over time I have realised that I need to stop caring about being judged or what people think and would like to meet other people in the same boat as me who would like to overcome this cycle. I was quite into fitness before my anxiety started and would like to go back to it as I know that activity really helps this condition. And I would also like to support somebody else like me who wants to get into activities and fitness:)
