I have just joined this group as I have recently broke up with my Partner and would like to meet new people. Please message if your interested and any ideas of what we can do in the area :)
Chat here. Chat together. I will organise a space where we can meet up, and maybe run this like a supper club - meet eat n chat. Only rule is we all accept each other, I say that as I have been cared for but never truly accepted with my depression. Anyone from anywhere could come. Lets chat here first then if it looks good we'll meet.
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
Do you like coffee? Chatting? This group is aimed at women 20's and 30's who are lonely and wanting to form a supportive network of other women and just get out of the house.
Hey, I'm Laila, and I'm a proud PC gamer and a very eager board/card gamer. I have depression and anxiety followed by that intense weekly panic attack so this group is for those who are on the "same boat" as yours truly that happen to be interested in gaming and possible meet ups for some board/card game action.
This is a group for people living on the south coast. A laid back group to chat and make friends
Once we get a few people in we can arrange to meet up for coffee or food to get support and make friends :-) Anyone from outside of Essex can join too of course, we just need SOME meet ups in this area :-)

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
