New. Needing a friend. Gamers?



Nov 19, 2013
Going to keep this as short as possible. I've been battling with mental health problems for over 2 years now and it has completely changed me. I've literally lost all my friends, recently my fiancé moved out and now I live alone. I don't leave the house for days at a time.
I'm looking for someone who would like to be friends. Being a gamer (xbox one/360) would be good but I'm really just looking for someone who's in a similar situation and needs a friend and can offer support and advice. Adults only please.

Hey, Robzy. :welcome: to the forum! :)

Your situation sounds very similar to mine in some ways. I had a breakdown a few years back, left my job, and broke off contact with almost all of my friends and family. I hardly ever leave the house. I'm lucky in that my girlfriend has stood by me, but I'm alone most of the time. This place has been a great place to hang out, if only to pester people with my bad jokes and unfashionable political views ;)

I'm a PC luddite, I'm afraid, but I'm sure there are plenty of xbox types around. Jump in and enjoy! :cheers:
