• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

I have an online friend who I’ve talked to for five years.
I don’t have any other friends since childhood.

We never met due to distance. Finally after my mom passing away I’m terribly lonely and we agreed on meeting in person.

I was excited the day I booked (couple days ago) then depression hit and he said my negative thoughts are overwhelming and thinks we shouldn’t meet. I spent over $700 on plane ticket. Wish he would’ve told me ahead of time instead of pressuring me on this exact date. He was the one to talk about me visiting so often.

wow he’s literally only person who I talk to in this world and he called it off because I was in a dark place and venting. I’m sure being in person with him I wouldn’t be nearly as depressed.

Nothing will ever go right. So ready to call quits when I obtain the chemicals.

My ex once told me, online friends are not real friends. Had I not known about our mind's tendency towards confirmation bias, I would be inclined to believe. I hope things go smoothly for you from here on out CantGoOn.

Wow. I'm sorry for you. It's incredible how often people betrays you, one day they look happy of your company and suddenly they get rid of you and left you feeling like you have no valor. Despicable cowards, if somebody doesn't want being with us, tell it us since the first moment.

If I someday meet a person, hope he/she doesn't betray me.
