Default Anyone joined here exclusively to meet people to chat ?

When I started looking for depression forums my idea was to meet people to chat, and do some friendship ideally.

Been 6 years since I started joining and using mental health forums, also I joined to every depresson group in Facebook, and so far havent meet many people willing to chat, and still dont have any online friend I care to chat.

Its been very dessapointing. I deal with loneliness, and the forums sometimes feel so lonely. Just read and reply topics isnt enough. In other forum I reply many topics but the people who make the topics doesnt reply back, and many times just abandone their topics, so now I dont care much to reply othe people's topics.

Personally I just look for people who want to chat in private message, but I post messages and dont get many replies, and then its hard to find people which match interests or way to think.

I joined a few discord forums but the median age there seemed to be around 16.

I know what you mean...

Nonetheless, the one I'd recommend is the Haven. They had an age poll, which showed that most users are in their 20's and 30's. A few 40's and even some 50's and 60's. I don't recall beyond that.

No, mainly because I want to meet others that also deal with depression, someone who also understand this, and we can relate through this.

I know that even forums can sometimes feel lonely. I'm too much of an introvert, aside from depression, to be an ongoing chat partner. But I really hope you find what you are seeking here. It's a diverse group, so there have got to be some others who are chat-inclined.
