The aim of this group is to have a reason to get out of the house meet up with some people for a friendly chat, be it over a coffee or a stroll maybe once a month. Talk about anything, work, hobbies, wellbeing etc

This is an open group where all topics close to the heart are all welcome. As the name indicates it's kinda aimed at people from London but you that are observant may have noticed the pun - so it's not exclusive to only Londoners but anyone who's lonely or socially isolated and will love to connect with like-minded people are very welcome to join.
Thinking of starting a forum with sections for chatting about your day . Tv , film ,music hobbies , food , support groups , meet and greets etc . This is what I've come up with so far http://ukfriendsforum.proboards.com Would anyone be interested ? What do you think ?
This group is for Mums who are looking for true friends and that support system you hear people talking about. I've started this group as I'd love to meet more Mommy friends who are looking for proper friends who are there for each other. I've been let down in the past and had friends who said they would be there for me and when I needed them weren't and it hurts and just makes me feel lonely and a bit down really.
Hello I’m Kem. I’ve created this group for artsy/indie/alternative/creative people and anyone else who is interested to come together and discuss film, books, music and art. I want this to be an open and friendly group for us to be expressive. It’s also for people feeling lonely and in need of friends and a creative space. In the future, when the group is more established, I hope to have meet ups to art galleries, museums, parks, cafes, film festivals and other creative places. If you’re interested please join. Love and peace x

I can’t believe I came across this site it’s brilliant...I think it was fate I don’t feel so alone here
I wasn’t sure about this site when I joined up, but I must say I’m really pleased I did, because there appears to be some really lovely, caring people here with loads of time to chat and give you a boost. I find talking online really helpful- especially when you can’t deal with face to face
