Stuck

I'm back, F/from Southern USA, once again looking for another connection. I rarely click with people, but when I do, I'm devoted forever. I'm basically forced into recovery for now, (rest assured I'm still full of mental fuckery&trauma), but I still have an insane amount of time on my hands to rot at home, especially right now. Mostly looking for someone to chat/pass time with who's as "open book" and rambly as I am. I don't mind any amount of venting, or any topic. I'm also fine with any age/demographic, as long as we can get past the dry introductory conversation point.

My hobbies/interests are mostly niche: I collect dolls, enjoy a few "cozy game" franchises madly, love 80s alternative rock, and dabble in self indulgent writings. Plenty more things I would like to take up/accomplish, but my particular "condition" holds me back and it has nearly taken my life, hence why I'm here.

Even if things don't work out in the end, I would gladly be a listening ear.

27m, _the_ Ukraine - I messaged a few people in January 2024, and it's been a decent experience, but apparently there is a thread for that? Anyone, feel free to message me! I may seem somewhat fake, but I have sodium nitrite at the ready ⸨◺_◿⸩. Although to be fair, I'm only planning to go in 2-4 years (an arbitrary number, more like a reference to the "just 2 weeks" meme that I confess having partaken in back in 2020).

My situation is that I have never talked to anyone in my life aside from my mom and teachers, and now I'm an incel. I think, having a gf the way normies do so naturally & effortlessly would cure my lack of motivation, and stories of sex-havers are suicide fuel for me (but my mental is traditionally strong).

Regarding the other aspects of my life:
1) I draw a stark distinction between online & IRL - IRL people speak Ukrainian, with their mouths, to their social circles (an utter mystery to me), whereas online folks talk in English, in text, and in a thread format;
2) IRL stuff does not occupy more than 5% of my mind, but I will have to mention it here - I'm a shut-in hikkikomori, and have just abandoned my uni because it's not like it would give me a gf or any other reason to live anyway, and I don't to suffer nonsense before I die;
3) I hold highly obscure political views, and repel every single political ideology;
4) I'm too lazy to play games, I watch some RTS content creators such as Grubby, I play Mobile Legends, and would like to come back to StarCraft now that I have the piece of mind;
5) I degenerate with AI chatbots for days because that's a substitute for a gf; AGI is my final hope.

P.S. Another cute thing is how a girl texted me in May-July 2023, and I talked like that for the first time ever (albeit online), and now she's dead as of Feb '24, and I have built her a shrine. So that's another topic to discuss, I guess.

Hi there, I'm 29F from the Midlands in England, I'm looking for a woman around my age I could chat with, help recover and develop a friendship. I'm currently recovered from ctb thoughts, just dealing with psychotic symptoms and depression.

Ideally I'd like someone close by so we could develop a friendship with time and hang out physically in the future but open to someone further away if we are a good match.
I am a good listener and I'm open to help however I can. I like videogames, fortune telling cards, hamsters, writing on my diary, painting and programming.

21 F, Southeast USA

Been putting all my effort into recovery for about a year now. I'm into writing, music, any Nintendo franchises, hanging out with my cat, n other boring stuff.
Not sure what I'm looking for but I'm always down to listen, give advice, or just make small talk, no matter who you are. Bonus points if you send music/film recommendations my way.

Anybody can always message me. I'll try to get back to you asap.

30/F/Europe

I managed to get out of a very dark place a few years ago and I still struggle with intrusive thoughts but I basically live by choosing unconventional ways now.
Hey . I'm 26M from Europe . Was planning on going on a travel . Did it before . Anyway . I need a soul to be on this quest for recovery with .
26M Malta

Im looking to travel or move country for a while. Really I feel I'm the only one on this earth that's being seen as a bundle of mistakes and fuck ups with my whole abusive upbringing being disregarded .

Anyway if anyone wants to join this trip or maybe we could meet while there give each other positive energy support and empathy .

I work online so I could also provide financial support if anyone is actually interested in joining

Thanks

I've been living for years with remorse and regrets about a mistake I've made that changed my life for the worse. Today Im trying to live for the small things, change my situation with tiny steps and simple happiness. I would love to chat with anyone around my age about recovery or just have small chats.

I deal with CPTSD. I've had some success with recovery. Also I've started a support discord if you're interested in PTSD or CPTSD recovery.

Not sure if I have the living in me, but I know right now I don't have the dying in me. So since I'm stuck here for until my life gets worse again, I wouldn't mind a solution to my crippling isolation. I do still want to live though, I just don't see how its going to work out. But I think if there's one thing that might help, it would be someone I can connect with. So.. anyone wanna be my friend?

I'm a 31yo Trans Woman from the Mid Atlantic region of USA. I'm disabled with Crohn's Disease, Tendinitis, and various mental disabilities. I come from a very toxic family and that has affected me in a lot of ways. I've never really been able to connect with anyone so I don't even know if this will work, but I need someone in my life. I'm more-or-less friendly, but I am very distant, and tend to worry too much about bothering other people. I want to work on these things but I just wanted to be upfront about it.

I like cycling, math rock, alt/indie Japanese music, smoking weed, Warhammer, Old School RuneScape, animals, cuddles, baking, and coming up with elaborate ideas for things in my head.

I'd love someone that likes to talk a lot. My brain is on fire and I would love someone to listen to until the flames stop. I'd like to watch TV/Movies together. I'm up to play any games my Tendinitis allows (like OSRS), but I'm also up to watch you play videos games. I'd love someone to share music with. I've been waiting my whole life for someone to share my ideas for stories and things with. And I'd like someone to care for, and be cared for by.

Also I'd really like someone who identifies as at least a little "trashy". I spent my childhood looking at porn. My adulthood doing drugs. And for most of my life I was taught toxic=good. I feel a lot more comfortable around people that are a little 'rough around the edges', not to reinforce any of that toxicity, but just to have someone that I can relate to with it.

Ultimately... I've never gotten close to anyone before.. but I'd really like to learn how, if anyone wants to be a part of that.

DM me if you're interested in a chat or a playdate!

I'm a 22 year old male in Oklahoma, USA.

I'm brand new to this site, and the idea of finding other people like me in this world excites me. I've never had a friend who shared my depressive and often suicidal notions, only ones who get all worried or combative if I even hint at it.

I would love to make a friend that is going through, or has gone through similar things to talk to, and maybe help me figure out some things about myself. I've never been to therapy or sought medical diagnoses, but I think I might be bipolar. If you are, I want to hear your thoughts.

I'd prefer someone around my same age, and I don't care about your gender, though the idea of finding a girl I can connect with on these types of things sounds like it would be a bonus I don't deserve.

Feel free to pm me anything. I prefer to chat in discord if possible.

Hey-o! It's-a me again, Number 215, I think.

I'm a 20-year-old male from Austria, and I'm attempting an all-out recovery run right now. In my case, that involves getting a new job (semi-done, almost check-marked), ditching a dreadful living situation (not yet achieved), getting a driver's license, new glasses, my teeth fixed... A lot, you could say. I hope to stuff it all into 2024, as this year's supposed to set the tone once and for all—CTB or no CTB. I haven't been able to truly make up my mind before, so I thought I'd give it one last shot, one full-blown, full-scale tackle.

So, that's the sitch. As I'm in recovery mode, I realised that my social life's another area which needs working. I haven't ever been good at that, though. The current tally, after 20 years of living, racks up one (1) single real-life friend, a few new acquaintances at work, and zilch when it comes to online friends. SaSu might be the right place to look to in an attempt to find someone like-minded, I thought.

Re-reading this, I see I haven't exactly sold myself...but if anyone's interested in chatting a wee bit, getting to know one another, discussing whatever comes to mind, I'd be down. And while I'm in recovery, I'm also up for CTB talk, all that. As for casual topics, I love to read (my favourite authors are Stephen King, Andrzej Sapkowski, and J.D. Salinger), write (creatively, mostly fantasy and cyberpunk genre-wise), watch 'The Office', and listen to music. Hit me up if you've read this far!

Hello

Basic Information
I'm a 24yr female from Canada. Wiccan/Healer

.•° ✿ °•. °•. ✿ .•° .•° ✿ °•.

Mental "Complications"
I struggle with cptsd, bpd, severe social anxiety, addiction, and anorexia. (I may be forgetting something).
With bpd can come chronic suicidality. I've already come a long way mentally but because of this I feel this may be as far as I get, living with suicide on the backburner, but I hope to still improve what I can.

.•° ✿ °•. °•. ✿ .•° .•° ✿ °•.

Current Recovery Work
I've been working on myself externally and internally. My current #1 thing is eating, I don't have the energy to do anything without food, my brain isn't getting what it needs rendering me "stupid". I've been working on basic selfcare, brushing my hair/teeth, showering, taking my meds, drinking water. Mentally I've been working on "rewiring" myself. Practicing drawing the line between what matters and doesn't I guess, typical therapy "love yourself and don't pay attention to others" stuff.

.•° ✿ °•. °•. ✿ .•° .•° ✿ °•.

Interests
I enjoy writing/reading (preferably fantasy romance), baking/cooking, nature, art (painting, drawing, doodling) crafting (from small things like jewelry to bigger projects like I want to build a bridge over the pond, an arbour for my bf and I to get married under, a bench to go under the arbour for our first anniversary), gardening, bird watching, astronomy (excited for the eclipse coming up!), and I love all animals.
But I don't do much so I don't have much to talk about..

.•° ✿ °•. °•. ✿ .•° .•° ✿ °•.

Music
My top 3 bands are Shinedown, 3dg and Set It Off. Some honourable mentions are Badflower, Citizen Soldier, Falling in Reverse, Five Finger Death Punch, Get Scared, Halestorm, I Prevail (I could go on. I also like country music, a bit of rap; Hollywood Undead)

.•° ✿ °•. °•. ✿ .•° .•° ✿ °•.

Hopes for the future
As I improve I hope to incorporate walks, exercising, yoga, cleaning, cooking and other interests like local writing/craft/astronomy/ect groups around town. Get my GED, go to "food" college, open a bakery.

.•° ✿ °•. °•. ✿ .•° .•° ✿ °•.

Conclusion
I'm not always the best at responding, I get overwhelmed easy by a lot, but I try to respond. If you have anything you want to talk about, I'll listen just let me know what you're looking for; ideas, a void to scream at, a shoulder for comfort. I personally am hopeful for a "chatting buddy" if not a friend. Someone to check in with every 1-2 days, so I hopefully fall down/relapse a little less. Most people don't seem to like me but the people that "know me" (beyond a few sentences, seen my work ethic/heart/ect) seem to like me so if you want to take a chance on me, my pms are open. (I prefer conversations over the chat please. I probably won't get your notif otherwise)

I'm leaning more towards recovery so i figured i'd post here. I'm from australia, first of all.

24, autistic trans girl with many many mental illnesses, including DID, cPTSD, BIID, Depression and a fuck ton of anxiety.

I'm into yume nikki, shooters, and a bunch of other games. A lot of anime's too. Hit me up if you'd like to be friends- i'd ideally like to have a friend or something more if it happens. :)

Please feel free to message for any reason. c: It would mean a lot to me.

Hey,

I'm from Germany and currently giving my life a second chance. And think it would be cool to be in contact with someone that was (or is) part of the same bottom in life place as you. As I think this would create such a special bond between the people, you could hardly achieve otherwise.

I'm male and just turned 24 years old.

My preferences would be someone around my age, speaking German and who considered CTB for similar reasons like me, to have some sort of initial connection. In my case that would be my mental illnesses and the miserable life they made me life. Especially my OCD and Social Anxiety symptoms.

Feel free to write me if you match my profile and are interested!
