Hello, I’m new and looking for friends

sea_shell123 Member Posts: 4 Listener
Due to my disability I am very socially isolated and I am looking to meet some friends. I am very anxious about this as I have never tried anything like this before. 
I am 23 and from Merseyside.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    It is a place you can make friends but the site isn't a chat room as such and is only virtual 

    Join in with the discussions you may find the coffee lounge section a good place to start 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will

    I am just looking to make friends but I don’t know how to. I’m interested in football, crafts and tv

    That great to hear you like football, which football do you support?
    What crafts do you like doing?
    We also make predictions of some chosen football matches where we try to predict the scores correctly for a bit of fun.
    We also have cp cafe online every two weeks I am sure at Richard_Scope would be happier to give you  more information about Cp online cafe if that is something that could interest [email protected]_shell123
    I share some own poetry I write on the online scope community

    Hi @sea_shell123 it's lovely to meet you! As @Globster has mentioned our football predictions thread is a bit of competitive fun, if you fancy. There's also an amazing gallery where members can share their own artwork, crafts and photos. 

    There's lots to explore in the Coffee Lounge, it's the best place to get to know people. What TV do you like watching? 

    Do let us know if you have any questions, I'm sure you can see we're happy to help :)
