When I joined to the forum wasnt because I was looking for any kind of advice, at all.

Mostly was looking to meet people.

Which is a big downsider, because most forums are too make questions. I dont have any questions, just look to meet people.

I really dont relate to people who ask for advices, or want other people opinions.

Sometimes when I say Im looking for someone to talk, people think Im looking for someone to vent, or tell them my problems, some say "you can talk with me", expecting they gonna try to help me with a problem. They think they gonna put in a "listener" place. I dont look for someone who listens, I look for someone who chats.

Any other here doesnt look for advices ?

Yeah, I'm not looking for advice -- just a feeling of feeling like I kind of fit in -- even just a little bit.

How's life in Argentina? Do people still do the tango down there?

I have not really looked for advice since I joined the forum here. I was lonely and on some level wanted to draw some comfort from being in a place where mental illness was not a barrier.

There are a lot of topics on this forum that allow us just to connect with others, which I really appreciate.

Try the chill out lounge or debating chamber.
Plenty of other threads where people only want to chat.

Kind of, now its just like a cultural traditional thing. I guess some people should like it, some learn it to dance as a living, but just a traditional thing.

The thing is I dont like that either. The chill out lounge is just too "chill" for me, I still want to talk about mental health stories, not about "hobbies".

The debating chamber, sometimes i make some comments to pass the time, I hate controversial topics and arguments.

I really want to meet the people, hear their stories. I always have in mind should be interesting to listen other people life.

Would you respond if people gave their stories?

There are lots of people here that don’t want advice nor
give it.

Perhaps you could start us off with one of your stories.
