Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

I should be going to bed, but...

IMO you communicate better than most, using the written word,
start there, and build your confidence back up.

We're not all desperate, or still looking, some are just here for the forums.

"Walls of text" will put some people off reading longer posts. (But not all)
Maybe try and break it up into smaller paragraphs.

Your posts (and profile*) are erudite, insightful and heartfelt, don't despair.
Life is tough, for many people, you write well, and may be able to help others.

The rules of the forums can be quite strict, so best familiarise yourself with them, if you intend to posts lots.
(* Technically, any references to another poster's profile, without them having first introduced it into the debate, is a forum offence! -but I didn't say anything bad about it, so it's ok)

Life's a journey, there are always shitty bits, on any journey, but it always leads somewhere better, eventually.
Good luck.

^^^ Oh thank you kind Sir. Your Critique of my profile and abilities are taken in good spirit and I take back my enema comment as far as your concerned JO :-)

On Topic. OP. I can understand why you feel isolated and a bit stuck for what to do. But bare in mind that nothing much stays the same and that you never know what is around the corner. Corny but true.
I hope you find someone or many to talk too and your feeling much more positive again soon.

It possibly wouldn't freak me out.
I'd also suggest you try www.meetup.com
tons of interest groups (may or may not be your thing)
if you have a bit more cash, Spice London or some other social group?

It's just some people here say friends & they mean sex partners so be VERY clear you mean it platonically to people.
