Hi! You might have come to this page to reach out and talk to a fellow human, or find solidarity and rapport in what you're going through or working toward. I'm glad that you've come so far regardless of what circumstances brought you here.

If you're a first-time visitor, please take a moment to check out the Categories section of my profile for a list of subjects my chats most commonly thematise. Those are topics I feel most versed in, mainly ones I've been acquainted with myself.

While I'm a little harder to be stumbled upon in person due to energy and time constraints, I would still be glad to hear from you and to get to know you better. You're welcome to message me at any time, but note that my availability varies and that my initial reply may take a while if my status is not set to online.

During less busy times, I enjoy writing, reading, digital art, music, tabletop games, hiking, and surfing. I'm the happiest when spending time in nature and at the sea, and after deepening bonds through cordial and authentic conversation with people I relate to and connect with. 


What else can I tell you? It seems to me that everything has its proper emphasis; and finally I want to add just one more thought: to keep growing, silently and earnestly, through your whole advancement; you couldn't disturb it any more violently than by looking outside and waiting for outside answers to questions that only your innermost feeling, in your quietest hour, can perhaps answer. 

Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

if these were the Olympics, he'd be Phelps. Kia ora!
Really good listener, professional, helpful, feeling really good talking with them.
He was very nice and helpful
Thank you! You're the best!
Awesome listener!!! So insightful . He really understood me :)
I came to Ben after being hurt in the worst way possible. He was very supportive through it all. He is honestly one of the best listeners and he was very validating of all of my ordeal. He made me feel safe even though I didn't feel good. Thank you, Ben, for being my angel.
Ocyboo is amazing!!! He is one of the most calm minded soul I have come across on 7c! He is the one you can completely depend upon, while in distress. He instantly connects with you (mentally) and tries to help you in every possible way!
I hope God bless him wherever he stays, and make his life easier soon. :)
- Person.
Ben was very kind and patient, spent many hours to talk to me. Was very insightful and made me felt really validated. As I already have been feeling a lot of emptiness and grief, he was gentle and understanding with my emotions. Sometimes when you are feeling so small and shattered, there's no instant fix indeed, but talking to someone who is so understanding as Ben, would make you feel less alone and someone is being there for you. Thank you so much.
A good person that means what he writes and cares. Thank you for being a friend for my brother E.
Ben was genuinely supportive. persistently impartial and fair-minded. super compassionate as well. Offered an insight and genuine interest in my case. Listened to my situation and approached it with as much professionalism and tact as I could need. His messages were beautifully written and comforting. I highly recommend this calm and collected individual :)
Balsam für die Seele, dankeschön OceanChild.
best listener, really understood me and was such a big help!
Very uplifting while sensitive and conscious to my current feelings and emotions, I felt that I was in good hands from the start.

Ben is such a calming, warm, loving presence. Like a friend you've known for a long time and met again. He is gentle and caring, but knows how to use words in the right way.
I'm dealing with drug abuse and people treating me with respect and care without being judgemental, scoldig or condescending are rare... I got teary when I realized that my issues are symptoms of something deeper... He provided insights that worked for me and I feel so hopeful now. Thank you love
