Long running sticky thread request

(171 Posts)

Hello

I started a thread (randomly) in relationships, because I am hopeful that there is a way for MNers in need to get some RL support from other MNers.

www.mumsnet.com/Talk/relationships/1426504-When-you-need-a-RL-friend?pg=2

Is this something MNHQ could help with or support in any way?

Thanks

Hi SlightlyJaded

We have seen your thread, would you like us to move it over here for you?

We will keep and eye and see what everyone thinks/wants and then see what we can come up with.

Thank you very much for the suggestion.

Let us know if you would rather the thread lived over here?

Hi Rebecca

Thanks for the quick response.

I don't know where the original thread should live as am not sure where it would be most visible/get the most traffic? Can I ask you to put it wherever you think it will be seen by the most people?

Once you've decided, I might put a link to it in 'chat' if that's ok.

thanks again

I think it is good I personally suffer ill mental health and I am isolated as a result my family are not supportive so dont actually know I have alot of ill health and if they see it they kind of ignore and pretend it doesnt exist and most friends dont stick around when I become unwell as they didnt sign up for that. I have no friends and I am scared to talk to anyone new about it because of the stigma so I think its a great idea. I have posted this on the relationship board but I am posting here too.

yes yes yes, i'm up for this and it would be a nice thing to do whilst on maternity leave as i'd have more time for coffees and to be honest would appreciate the company myself.

would need to know rough location (say first half of postcode?) of the MNer looking for a meet up. I can think of 2 ways it might work - firstly the person wanting to meet a RL person could request it and others could offer to meet, or alternatively people willing to meet in RL could offer times / rough locations and people wanting to take them up on it could "accept". suspect the second route is more likely to get people to actually ask for help as that is the most difficult bit of it i think.
