I'm looking for an Ana buddy/pen pal to work with, and reach our goals together. I've often been a part of the kik groups and stuff but it never felt personal as there were always so many people. I'm not just looking for a motivator to lose these damn pounds, I'm looking to make a friend and someone to get to know and share my experience with. Someone who has no connections to my daily life and people I know so the friendship really is based on just the two people. If you are willing to commit to working down to the bone with me to hit them goal weights, to smile at weigh-ins, to sit under a blanket with the laptop or pen & paper just letting everything that's swirling around in your mind out in front of you. I am not judgemental and whoever you are, reading this, I care. And I'd love to get to know you for who you really are and then I want us to really push one another to our limits and achieve everything we want.
I have to say 18+ only please, I know it's stupid cos I'm only 20 myself, but I would just feel like the worst influence so it's just a moral thing.
So yeah, but me up if you wanna embark on this journey with me!

hey, so you can't use the messaging system because you're still a newbie.

but i really like how you think and can totally relate with the kik groups just being too big and distant, and wanting a really tight relationhip. i would love to be your friend but i'm stil 17 (turning 18 in february) is that okay?? if it helps you wouldn't be a bad influence because i've had an eating disorder/disordered thinking since i was 10.

Hello, i feel the exact same way about the Kik groups, i always thought they would be a great idea, but then would freak at having so many people know about me, whilst still being impersonal and my anxiety would just go through the roof and it became scarier than having those i really know find out. Your post made me smile because that is exactly what i am looking for aswell, and would love for us to reach our goals together. However, i am 17 (turning 18 soon, but please do not let that put you off, i still think we would make great friends)

Hey there. I'm definitely 18+ ...feeling terribly old in comparison to twenty. However, I'd love to get to know you if you're interested. Dealing with all of this stuff can be pretty lonely at times. People in my everyday life aren't very supportive in general, much less about these sorts of things. However, I'm hoping to meet some new people who I can help motivate and be motivated by.

I can't use the messaging system, and I'm not sure what the rules are but am I allowed to give out my email address for individual usage?

Well, you can post your e-mail address in the comments but then everyone will see it, if I understand what you're asking for correctly. Otherwise, the only way do to it is to send a message, but I think you'll only be able to do it after a few days or if you have more posts of your own.

 

But I for one would love to get to know you better. I actually wrote quite a long message to you but then it turned out that I can't send it yet :P

You all sound wonderful and it would be such a pleasure to be able to get to know you individually and on a personal level...we will have our own little ana-army! What's the fastest way to access the messaging system? X

I may be mistaken but I think you need to reach a certain amount of posts (also, if you want someone to see your comment, it's best to quote theirs, cause I only saw your comment now because I'm "stalking" this thread)

aw this sounds nice! I'm 31. it does seem like kik groups fall apart pretty quickly. i am feeling pretty isolated, lost a good friend recently & throwing myself into ED due to stress so it would be nice to have more ppl to talk to.

Looks like we are the same age. If you'd ever like to chat, I'm in a similar boat as you. I'm too new here to message people though, so I guess I will be waiting a bit longer..

I'm 23 and would really like this. I don't really have anybody around me who understands what is happening to me mentally. Try to remember me when you get messaging privileges!
