I'm female and probably the Geek-ist one around my current social group. I did have one friend but she's gone over to the pink and fluffy side. I'm looking to chat to real fans about all things Geek or Nerdy!! I'm 26 years old and frankly I don't care!! I love Harry Potter, Superheroes, Marvel, Pop Funko's etc. Like them too let me know!! :)
I'm lonely and in need of some friends and support. .. would be great to have a group in which we can arrange meet ups and talk over the phone. Any one is welcome
A group for people who are in Peterborough and surrounding areas so that they can connect with eachother and occasionally maybe meet up
Just want to connect with other people who are feeling like me so I don't feel so damn lonely all the time. Maybe arrange meet ups because there doesn't seem to be much in the area
Hi. My name's Charlotte. I'm 26 years old and live in London and have struggled with depression/emetophobia/anxiety/OCD since I was 13 years old. Through my struggle I isolated myself from friends and many of them were scared away at the fact I had a mental health condition. I have since found it very hard to make friends and come across people who have had similar experiences and have similar interests. So this group is for anybody who feels the same and is looking for friends :)
I'm struggling at the moment with my depression. Constantly feeling low and alone. I've gone through a lot in the past 2 months with family and being forced out of home to live somewhere on my own that I can't really afford aswell as all the other stresses of bills etc. It would be nice to get out and talk to people who have the same low, alone feeling that I do.

Hey guys, I'm new to this and looking to try and find a good network of people in my area who I can meet up with for chats and support :)
Sometimes it’s easier to talk to a stranger than to relatives or friends. During talking therapy, a trained therapist listens to you and helps you find your own answers to problems, without judging you. The therapist will give you time to talk, cry, shout or just think. It’s an opportunity to look at your problems in a different way with someone who’ll respect and encourage your opinions and the decisions you make. Usually, you’ll talk one-to-one with the therapist. Sometimes, talking treatments are held in groups or in couples, such as relationship counselling. Although there are many different types of talking therapy, they all have a similar aim: to make you feel better. Some people say that talking therapies don’t make their problems go away, but they find it easier to cope with them and feel happier.
Sorry, there are no locations to map

I can’t believe I came across this site it’s brilliant...I think it was fate I don’t feel so alone here
I wasn’t sure about this site when I joined up, but I must say I’m really pleased I did, because there appears to be some really lovely, caring people here with loads of time to chat and give you a boost. I find talking online really helpful- especially when you can’t deal with face to face
