Looking for like-minded members to chat with

Hello all, I am new! Never joined a chat site before. Am looking for people to chat with from near and far!


It is understandable that everyone is a little unsettled! With this virus here and abroad, we all need to feel comfort and reassurance! I


know everyone feels a little bit alone, not being able to get out like before. I am glad for this chat room.


By the way, we are going to get through this! Together from miles apart! I am here to listen, if you want to talk!

Hi Louise S34 & Trixzy, I agree that the virus is stealing at least a year or more of our lives.

You cannot make future plans as you usually would as everything is still uncertain.

I do not see my family much. I think we will get our lives back but it will still take some time.

Some people will be changed as a result, in some ways their values will have changed for the better. Life is not all about consumerism! Hopefully some people will develop some more empathy for others and realise what is important.

Hello Augmentin, welcome.

Yes, I was saying to some others it feels we cannot make future plans as everything is uncertain. We will have to focus on what we can do now. What do you like reading? Do you have any favourites?

Take care

Hi, I am new to this. Would you like to chat about anything at all. I am a dog lover. Love outdoors. Was widowed a couple of years ago, though I have friends. There is not that special person to chat to, play scrabble with. sit in the garden.

Hello lapis, nice to meet you! Hopefully this will be a great way to socialize.

I am a dog lover as well. I have learned to appreciate garden as of late. I would rather be outside that inside. It’s a little hot here right now. Do most of outdoor activities early in am or later in the evening.

Hope your day goes well!

Stay safe

Hello, I feel the same way.

I have been at home for months now.

This virus is steeling a year and maybe more of our lives.

I can't visit my family and thank goodness for facebook so I can see and chat with them for free

I am new to chat forums also and having difficulty learning how to navigate this site. With the virus and restrictions on gatherings many of our normal social activities have been put on hold. We have to learn new ways to socialize. It's good that we can communicate with family using wattsapp and similar

Hello JimH2, I’m new at this too! I agree, with these crazy times, you do need new ways to socialize.
