Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone knew of any ways of meeting new people? Looking to meet new friends! Anyone know of anything. 

I’m into theatre, football, the odd bit of gaming and quite down to earth! 

I’m 27, have a Guide Dog, I live in Essex, but looking for anyway really online or offline!

    There's plenty of people on here you can make friends with. In the time i've been here i've made some lovely friends.
    I've even had the pleasure of meeting one of them in person twice and i'm going to visit her in her home again this Saturday. We ring each other weekly and have done for many months. I also have contact with another person most days but never met them.
    There's lots of threads you can involve yourself in and you will soon make some friends.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi there @AlexRamzan and welcome :) Well done for putting yourself out there. As lots of our members have said, the community here is a great place to make friends- and you've posted in the coffee lounge, which is the best place to get to know everyone.

    What theatre do you like, and have you seen any shows live?

    What haven’t I seen should be the question! 😂 I do a lot of reviewing of shows for my local theatre! But in terms of West End, I’ve seen Wicked so many times over the years I’ve lost count! I’ve also seen Phantom a couple of times! Want to see the lion king and Les Mis at some point. Also Frozen and Back To The Future look really good! What about you? 🙂
