My name is Emily. I'm 23 years old. I care about people too much.


"So you don't know where you're going, and you wanna talk
And you feel like you're going where you've been before
You tell anyone who'll listen but you feel ignored
Nothing's really making any sense at all
Let's talk"

- Coldplay

Very kind and insightful. I felt really heard which is an invaluable gift.
Thank you oiginalLion57
Listener continues to follow up each day since chat. Almost seems I am sitting face to face not on my computer. And like a close friend. Not a listener helper. ☺☺
Amazing person and listener
Great listener! Had a great experience :)
I had a very positive chat with this listener 2 nights ago. Has since messaged me. Follow up is important to me. Reenforces my feeling of being made valued. Great work my friend and 7 cups.

Well-spoken and caring. Made me feel better about my situation and kept it about me and my problems while still being able to relate that they felt the same way.
Was feeling very low. Had hit a very low point in life. Perhaps my lowest ever. Had been rejected by family. Listener gave me hope. Gave great attention to what I said. Made me feel important and valued. Would rate easily in top 5 listeners over 8 months I have used this site but I realy think number 1. How ever I consider all equal. They also did not judge or criticise in any way. I feel I was very hounered and privilaged to have spent around 3 hours with this person. Wow . I thank 7 cups and this person deeply.
A really sweet gal. She listened to me and took the time to actually think of possibilities and outcomes. She replied truthfully and wholeheartedly. Thank you so much missy. Stay Sweet! x
Insightful, reassuring and uplifting
An awesome listener!
I had to leave the chat early, but OriginalLion57 was perfectly fine with it, I asked about reconnecting once I'm back and they were very welcoming. For the short time we spoke, I feel they have truly listened and most definitely thought before they typed, which is noticed and highly appreciated. I completely recommend them. :)
Really polite and lovely Listener. Highly recommended.
Brilliant, objective and simply nice
Helped me calm down I was quite distressed. Was good to vent to someone who doesn't actually have an emotional connection to me.
thank you
Best listener I ever had!
Really nice and helpful listener! :)
The best listener I've ever had!
Great listener

I felt great
She's so sweet... very careful and sympathetic...
Good listener and fun to talk to :)
Thank you
She is just amazing! So kind and sweet.

Really helpful .. Gave me hope dat evrythn will b all right...
I felt good
