    Just thought I'd say a slightly apprehensive 'Hi' from my beige-coloured bedroom in darkest Wales, UK.

    So,um - Hi!.

    It's the first time Ive introduced myself on any site - I'm usually one of those perpetual lurkers.

    I still feel apprehensive about posting here (although honestly, I feel that about any forum!) partly I suppose because the fact of being thirty eight! (and male by the way).

    I'm not really sure why that is. Perhaps underneath it all, I felt embarrassed that Ive managed to get this old and still not miraculously become that perfectly happy, 100% emotionally secure, problem-free person I assumed I'd somehow turn into one day. Well, it didn't happen!. But I'm still here, and I'm guessing, like many others on this forum, that's a miracle in itself.

    No need to be apprehensive :) We don't bite...honestly...although whips are used liberally in the chat room ;)
    I guess no one is problem free. I'm glad you signed up here though :)
    Take care,

    Welcome bluekitten;:smile:

    Yes, your continued existance is a miracle, as is mine, and I owe mine in large part to the loving lovely friends here who've held me together when I was falling apart - or wanted to let myself fall apart. We will be happy to listen to anything you want to tell us, don't be ashamed of coming here - we're glad to have you join us.:smile: :smile:

    You may also be interested in joining Antiquitie's Friends, the forum for us "over thirty's" (I'm 55). Again, welcome to the forum and I hope we can help you find what you are looking for.:smile:



    PS; what's a 'lurker'? I've heard the word but don't know its exact meaning. The Beatles used it in A HARD DAY'S NIGHT: ..."yeah, he looks a right lurker..." but please educate me - I'm not up on the European slang that much.

    Hey thank's everyone!.

    And 'least' - good to know I'm not the only old fogie round these parts!:biggrin:

    Don't think I'm quite an antique yet though!.But I'll be sure to look in on the forum. Oh and by the way 'Least' - a 'Lurker' is just someone who reads but never posts. But Ive always been kinda shy.

    I was trying to think of a user-name for myself. And well, I like the colour blue, and kittens (who doesn't!) so I thought "Aha - bluekitten!"

    Well I just did a google search and discovered I share the same ID as a 42 year old catholic female 'looking for love' and a popular pornography site!:blink:

    So just in case you ever come across my name whilst randomly surfing one day, let me just make clear that I am neither female, catholic, nor a pornographic haven for desperate middle-aged men!.:laugh:

    Thankyou everyone!.
