✱NO CHATS INVOLVING SEXUAL MATTERS✱
✩ AVAILABILITY ✩
If I am offline, I am looking at the website offline or genuinely offline (sleeping, self-care, etc.). Messages will be accepted but are not a priority - if it is urgent, please contact another listener.
If I am busy, I am online and am currently busy with either a scheduled meeting or lots of chats. You may leave me a message, but it is improbable that I will be able to chat live.
If I am online, I am accepting new member requests! Please feel free to send me a message.

✩ QUOTES ✩
"I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am, I am, I am."
—Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
"Do you remember how that life yearned out of childhood toward the 'great thing'? I see that it is now yearning forth beyond the great thing toward the greater one. That is why it does not cease to be difficult, but that is also why it will not cease to grow."
Pretendpoet has tremendous empathy and I am truly blessed to have connected with this listener!
She is a very good listener with a kind heart, Thank you so much for helping me.
Awesome person and very helpful. Great listener.
