How to Find Someone to Talk to

by Laura ONeill

Connecting with other people is very important. Everyone needs to have an emotional, physical or verbal contact with others. If you feel like you have no one to talk to it can be very lonely and depressing. Fortunately, there are numerous avenues to find someone to talk to and can be accomplished easily with the help of technology or personal social networks.

Join a social group or organization. There are social groups and organizations for every hobby or interest imaginable. Joining several groups allows you the option of meeting a variety of people to connect with. Churches offer many opportunities for socializing. Organizations and groups you are interested in are easy to find by searching online.

Join a chat room. If you are more comfortable talking with people online than you are in person, join a chat room and ask if anyone wants to talk. Chat rooms are a great way to meet people who are interested in connecting with others. Chat-avenue.com offers numerous free chat rooms to help you meet and talk with people.

Search for strictly platonic personal ads. Craigslist.org allows you to post or read strictly platonic personal ads in the city of your choice. If you see an ad that interests you send the person an email or create your own free platonic personal ad in which you express your desire to find someone to have conversations with.
