Anyone else feeling isolated lately, what with ED stuff plus covid?

 

I barely have any male friends in real life; I'd love to talk to some new people who can relate to all this. Maybe keep each other on track with goals (ED related or otherwise), or just chat about life, share music, all that kind of stuff.

 

I'd be down to talk over discord or whatsapp--if you like, dm me and I can give you my contact info (I'm a bit too paranoid to post it here, since this forum isn't hidden)

 

Thanks for reading; take care :)

Nice! I hope it's a good one. Walking's so underrated, imo.

 

It's almost 1am here, but I can't sleep. Just being a night owl, listening to podcasts, waiting for morning to happen. Hard not to be restless these days, the world's a bit crazy and the usual distractions are gone.

Thanks for saying hi :)

 

You might want to know that I'm trans myself--I worded my title like this to include both cis and trans men, because I'm happy to talk to both. I was trying to be inclusive, not misleading; sorry if I made the wrong call there.

 

It seems like a lot of cis guys are frustrated with the number of trans guys here; if we make it harder for you to feel like you've got a community you can relate to, that really sucks, because it's hard already to find places to talk about ED (or mental health) stuff as men. There definitely is a weird tension on the men's forum; I notice it too. Makes it hard to want to talk out in the open about basically anything.

 

That said, though, the world treats me like a man like 95% of the time at this point. I can't really relate to women's issues, and I don't want to constantly live in the mindset of pre- or early transition now that I don't have to. Physically, I don't have much in common with women anymore either. So who else can I go to, other than men in general? That's the category I'm living in at this point, except for occasional medical stuff. But, like, who defines themself by a couple doctor's appointments rather than by the way they live the rest of their life, y'know? I'm not trying to barge in and crowd out the rest of you--just, where else would I reasonably be expected to go?

 

I'm not gonna tell you that you have to think you've got anything in common with me; that's up to you. If you'd still like to talk, though, even about this^ stuff, you can message me; I seriously mean that. (It's probably a bit of a thorny topic to discuss on the forums, though, and I don't want to turn this thread into a debate.) But I get it if you're looking for something else, too.

I would love to be friends with anyone and everyone who wants to. I mainly use Snapchat/iMessage/text. But I’d be down to use a different social media if needed. I just want friends who understand.
