Update - There's been some technical difficulties launching Chatwee onto our website so we will not be moving to Chatwee on Thursday.

As soon as we fix this issue, we'll announce another date for launching. We're really sorry for the delay in Chatwee, thanks so much for your patience.

Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Hi

    Hi I'm Katie I'm 27 and really lonely I have a few friends online but other than that I have no friends that I can do things with, I have disabilities that prevent me from working however I do go to a visually impaired drama group they are nice people but all live too far from me and don't drive (for obvious reasons). I'd like to be to be friends with my neighbour/landlord because he seems quite lonely too and he seems quite shy but I haven't got a clue how to make friends with him if he would even want to be friends I'm really down at the moment because of it all I hope people can understand

    Hi Katie,

    welcome to the mix perhaps you could make a thread on the boards about how to make friends? Your drama group sounds good. Perhaps you can ask your neighbour if he would like to have a coffee/drink with you and then go from there.

    Hope to see you around the boards

      Hey Katie, and welcome to the boards.

      Feel free to create a thread about the loneliness you're talking about over in Health & Wellbeing or Sex & Relationships (whichever you feel it fits with).

      I'm Mike, one of the moderators you'll see floating around. Happy posting!

        Hiya Katie,

        Welcome to the boards!! I'm Eleanor, 14, and completely understand this what you're feeling. As Mike and Jelly suggested, it's absolutely okay to make a specific thread on these feelings of loneliness.

        See you around!

          Hi Katie!
          Welcome to the boards. Hope to see you around and hope you find it helpful
          I dont expect anything - to just end up disappointed. But i do not have zero hope for the future cause that has only dragged me down & brung negativity. I will just not predict the future
