    Hi, I'm looking for people in Portland OR. I'm overcome with extreme loneliness and despair and am looking for company and others with similar feelings to talk to, preferably in person. If you're feeling as suicidal and depressed as me, perhaps we can help each other in our own small way.

    I read about a guy who was arrested for luring some people from the internet with a similar ploy, taking them to his house where he then killed and ate them. The in person part would probably make a lot of people uneasy, maybe starting with chat and phone calls would be a better idea so they can have a general idea of who you are before they get physical. Just a heads up, no negativity intended.

    I apologize.. unfortunately, with the world today you are too true. I simply wanted someone to talk to. Sometimes I suppose we become desperate enough to make a leap. I can't describe how desperate I have become. I've been dealing with suicide for about 8 years. It's been something i've learned to live with ironically enough. Some days are worse than others. Alcohol and vicodin go a long way. About me, I'm 26 years old. I'm intelligent, attractive and friendly. I've learned a lot about depression over time, but have a difficulty talking to anyone about it. I had a friend who I could discuss things with, who also was suicidal, we literally kept each other alive. Recently however we've split apart for various reasons, and I find myself more lonely than ever and in despair. I found this website, it's my last hope. Every year that passes seems to get worse. I sit here, 8 years later, my friends have forgotten me, I've lost my job, and I have nothing left to live for.

    This sounds like an urban legend.

    There's nothing wrong with your idea Doug. Just make it clear you want to meet somewhere safe in public. Like a coffee house or some such place.

    No it does happen in real life there have been many cases in Japan of this...which is sad. There is a chat room on this site where you can meet people. I don't mind talking to you over the internet if you wish, just drop me a pm.
