Meeting new people

I have M.E and sometimes find it difficult to socialise out in the community would like to try and meet someone to talk too on line, like a pen pal, with a view maybe to meet later on.

    Hi @mocharl0657

    I'm sorry to hear you find meeting people out and about a difficult thing, the pandemic certainly won't have helped with that. 

    What are your hobbies? There may be some groups you could join online where there will be people who share the same hobbies as you, alternatively there may be threads on this community that interest you.

    A few of our members use the Outsiders website as a platform to meet new people, you might want to give that a go.
