Need to chat

Just want to connect with other people who are feeling like me so I don't feel so damn lonely all the time. Maybe arrange meet ups because there doesn't seem to be much in the area

South Lakes and Lancaster

As I couldn't find a group in the South Lakes/Lancaster area I thought I'd have a go at starting one. Anyone interested can make suggestions about what theme we go for... Maybe self help in the future...

Is Anybody Here From Leeds? In or Around?

It would be good to see how many people are local to Leeds here, maybe we could start a chat and see where things go? If it's successful perhaps we could start to arrange occasional meet-ups in the area.
