Re: Anyone from Leimbach and would like to chat ?

Hi there.
'Leimbach' is not exactly the centre of the universe, so half the folk on here will have no idea where it is and for chatting it is pretty irrelevant anyway. Daily Life is so full of new threads (half of which shouldn't be in there) that your thread slips into the depths of the Forum very rapidly. I'm sorry, but siitting in a corner and asking for a reply every couple of months will be unlikely to get you far.

Apart from what you have written on here, we have no idea of your circumstances. To 'like talking to people' sounds great in theory but is rather vague. As you've seen if you have been on here a lot, there are simply masses of new people and quite a lot of them are lonely and looking for companionship. Sure, you are at a disadvantage when you cannot get out, but many of those who meet up in real life, started getting to know each other by posting on here, maybe for months, and then realising they have common interests. I wasn't even looking on EF for friends, but found several good buddies whom I meet occasionally. Great fun.

To find 'friends' or 'companionship' on here you need to get your name recognised in that others see it regularly and notice that you have interesting ideas or are helpful. After a while you could maybe try PMing someone who seems to have something in common with you. To achieve all this you have to 'work' at it. Most of us do that without thinking about it at all. If you have time, you could start welcoming new members or looking stuff up for them. They ask so many repeat questions that anyone who is on here a lot has seen the answer here before. You don't have to know it all yourself but by searching you get to know where the stuff is hidden, both on here and on the other internet sites.

You have a dog. The doggie friends seem to enjoy themselves in Pet Corner. Take a look in there. A few admiring comments about someone's dog will perhaps break the ice.

Hope you can find folk to chat with, but it will certainly mean an effort on your part.
