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

Great idea. I think there's a lot of 'stuff' around for young mums and kids, but once you're older with teenagers or even those who've left home, there's not much out there at all sad

This is a great idea, hope it happens. MN meet-ups are nice obviously, but sometimes a bit overpowering. There are a lot of lonely mums out there who would prefer a one to one with another mum who might listen. If this was called Mumsnet Connect or something neutral like that it would be best, and safety concerns are just common sense meet somewhere public etc.

I really hope this gets off the ground, well done to SlightlyJaded for suggesting it.

This sounds good.

I think this is a great idea and would help.

A thought: how about a sticky thread in each MN local, possibly called 'The Friendship Bench' or similar for people to post on if they need RL support. It would be specifically for that, not for organising meet ups or cinema trips or whatever. Or it could just have a link to the main thread and be locked for actual posting? Then people who are looking in their local sites in the hope of possibly meeting friends might see it.
