Hi all. Ive been a lurker for a while and decided to register finally. I have seen so much heartache on this forum and can certainly sympathize. However, how often is it that other meet in real life? Is it against forum policy? I think it might help a lot of individuals here to have someone to see and talk to in real life. Im a pretty quiet and introverted person but would love to get to know people. Ive been living in the Tampa Bay Area for a whole year and have not made a single friend and Ive read several posts about others' loneliness. Im not a naturally happy person, and my mind usually defaults to dark thoughts when Im not talking to someone or working. So, if theres anyone out there who agrees maybe we can start meeting members who are close to us. I know this wasnt the most eloquent post but I just wanted to get the general idea out.
