If anybody's up and in the mood to chat, I could really use someone to talk to.

Last edited Sun Mar 22, 2015, 03:47 AM - Edit history (2)

PM if you're interested, people know my username and all that in real life, so I don't really want to put it in the open DU.

You're a great community and all so I figured I'd toss this out and see if there's DUers in the world still up at this late hour

Edit: I don't mean to worry anyone! I'm doing fine, I'm just a little lost, and looking for community and people to talk to.

Falling asleep now, thanks to everyone who responded. You are all fantastic.

Let's talk about your stuff, that's what I prefer. I don't like to talk about me. I might depress you. I'm not sure if I've got the same kind of lost you're talking about. Also, no doubt I'm much older.
Do you really want my input?

What I mean to say is, tell us about it and I promise I won't laugh.

40. Oh, no, you first! As far as being lost, it's all physical for me. No longer emotional or mental.

Simply exhausted. So if you are lost, what did you lose...

Faith
Friends
Family
Finances
Future?

The past is dead and buried, the future is made of what we do today until we die.

Great expectations lead to great pain if the song we are practicing is interrupted.

Promises broken do not just break a contract between us and.. whoever.

I've had a great life, and after a while realized that waiting for what I wanted, was missing the now, and that waiting for my life to get better or start, wasn't coming. My life is my problems, they are my work, the people I know are the ones I know.

Now, spill, you started this...

44. Yes, it looks like we could develop a rapport.

He was getting worn out tonight so I'll wait for him to follow-up tomorrow. I thought he would be older, but I hung out with the younger crowd even as an adult so I have a good idea of the problems that young men have at that age. The good news is that I think that he is safe for tonight.

By the way, I'm still trying to figure out the meaning of life and what I want to do or become when I get older. I recall one young man (who was in rehab) that I met wanted to become a strip club manager.

46. The meaning of life is different for every person. Help him choose wisely tomorrow.

Every person has free choice. Free to obey or disobey the Natural Laws. Your choice determines the consequences. Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices.

or maybe there was and it didn't work?

There are 34 people at the reddit politics chat now (not a whole lot of talk though)
