Geeky stuff lovers with Depression

This is a group for manga, anime, gaming, film and TV show lovers. This is a place where we can chat about the things we love, talk about our problems and feelings, about what makes us sad or angry. I hope that by finding people to talk to who share common interests we can make good friendships, talk about what we love and make each other smile. Hopefully we can also have meet ups around London, and get to make new friends who have similar interests and problems.

Trying to meet new friends

Trying to meet new people to talk to since things have been quite difficult lately and whenever I try to discuss how I'm feeling with friends they think I'm just acting like this for attention or because things are going my way.
