    I am sitting here listening to my son laugh with a friend. The good thing is that he has a hard time making friends and I am hoping this might work for him. It is hard to see a teenager feel alone and friendless. Here is to hoping he grows into himself and reaches out more and more. I want him to have a good life.

    I look at a few different forums but only post here. Can't post on another one anyway since I've been banned for a couple years now. I missed it at first but now most of the people I cared about arent there and the turnover is quick there lately. People come and then they go. The others are mostly UK forums with very few american members.

    Oh no! My ex had them and after I saw what he went through I got the shot. Hoping it doesn't last long and isn't too painful.

    Here's hoping with you. I know how it is to be a teenager alone with no one but superficial friends. And here' to you, a hopeful parent.

    I had started looking for a place where I can meet people, (not a pickup place) but where you get to know other, reading their ideas and contribute my ideas with others. So far I have enjoyed being here, the people that I have followed have been very nice, and it seem that the same people are always around. I have not ran into any conflict, which is nice compare to other forums. Like face book, once you accept their friend request, (men especially) always have to use the "I like your profile, do want to be my friend," as soon as I read that I block them, and this is something that I don't see here and I like it. Over all I enjoy being here. Always looking to meet friends. As for the topics, I have enjoyed reading about paranormal, aliens, this is something I very curious about.

    I've never come across that on Facebook. I only get friend requests from people I know. Facebook isn't really like a forum or dating site.

    I've come across that kind of comment in PMs on forums.

    That's why I don't even have a picture on Facebook except my grandsons, I don't want perverts that I don't know posting where my family can see.

    I get requests once in a while from people who aren't familiar to me, and whose presence on Facebook is very new, where they posted a few photos all within an hour or so, just to fill up the first page. I do accept people who I don't know personally on Facebook, some of whom are from here, and I have a few from the Backwoods Home forum, although I haven't participated in that forum in years, and I have some people whom I share political views with. But when they have no Facebook presence, I assume they're just planning on scamming me for some reason and reject.

    In the process, some errors are made. For example, I did reject my sister but, in all fairness to me, I didn't remember her married name.

    If they're women and young and show a lot of skin, they're scammers.

    I like this thread! Everybody in it likes everybody else's thoughts, so rather than individual likes, I give the thread a "Like"!

    @Ken Anderson , you didn't remember your sister's married name? That's bad. :)


    I still have dead people as friends, need to remove them. Think I have at least 4 friends that are dead. Only realize it when I get the notice that it's their birthday. :)

    When I look on their page I see some people wishing them a happy birthday, guess they weren't close enough friends to know he died.
