    Yeah, a few at some banking events. A couple out clubbing. Some visiting their unis. And a few just to catch up over food.

    Sucks because they all live pretty far.

    That really good. It's great how the perhaps unsocial nature of a lot of TSR members can actually lead them to make friends with similar individuals from all over the place and then meet in person. A lot of friendships must've been caused through this platform. I mean personally I still speak to someone regularly who I started speaking to back in year 10/11 and now I just finished my first year at uni and we still chat. It's great ahha

    Yeh I kinda fall in that last group of people ; been doing various activities I've always wanted to do cause it will make for a good Snapchat story and hopefully people will think I actually have a life and I'm not just sitting at home bored out of my mind....

    That's why I refuse to get fb/ sc/ insta. Too much pressure. :/

    If you are an introvert/ a person with social anxiety you will most likely humiliate yourself on there.

    Just tumblr an tsr for me

    I feel somewhat happier to know I am not the only one

    Ok so idk I feel like when I'm lonely I tend to use this website to vent or ask questions cause I typically get a lot of responses when I post and then it makes me feel better cause I feel like people are acknowledging me and so it's nice

    Anyone else use this website as a coping mechanism for being lonely and bored cause this summer is just so long and boring it seems. I'm not enjoying it.

    Yeh I'm glad this thread has become a good place for everyone to share how they feel about using this as a means of improving their mental wellbeing and it's nice to see people aren't afraid to admit the same type of feeling towards wanting to use this site
