"Listen to understand rather than listen to respond."***Leave me a message and I will get back to you so that we can set up a time to talk. I look forward to hearing from you!***Hey guys, my name is River! I am a soldier in a constant war, but I can say with certainty that I'm winning.
I'm an Aquarius sun-Scorpio moon (for those of you who don't know what that entails, it means I'm argumentative but also very open-minded!). I am also an ISTP-A and primarily a Type 8: The Challenger, though I'm not nearly as scary as that sounds.
I love to read about the human mind, random facts, mental illnesses and how to manage them. I also write pretty much anything. I draw well, too, but usually mess my drawings up when I try to add colour. I'm a huge fan of rock music; you'll find me dancing to Green Day or Marianas Trench at 4 am. I like to cook as well, and I make a killer salad. The trick is orange and lemon juice as a dressing (citrus yum). I want to go into experimental and/or forensic psychology and perhaps neuroscience or criminology! As you can see, I still have much thought to give it.
I watch Supernatural (“A wise man once told me, ‘family don’t end in blood.’ But it doesn’t start there either. Family cares about you, not what you can do for them. Family’s there; for the good, bad, all of it. They got your back, even when it hurts.”), The Big Bang Theory (Bazinga!), and Criminal Minds (Hotch and Blake are my favourite).
I have Bipolar Disorder which is like an unwanted rollercoaster ride and Asperger's Syndrome, this means I'm a genius hah. I also have Synesthesia—basically means that I have some werid wiring in my brain and I connect certain things to other certain things instinctively—not as much a diagnosis as a superpower! This means that I feel the same physical sensations as other people do (mirror-touch), and I see people as colours (personality-colour). This being said, it might not sound so weird when I say that I like green, purple, and orange people!My Roles:Verified Listener - I have been verified by the 7Cups community based on quality active listening skills.

Kenz is both an amazing listener and astounding friend! She is highly empathetic which shows in every aspect of her life, be that her listening, her frienships, or her relationships. She loves being overprotective of others. I'll let you in on a secret: she likes to think she's tough but I can vouch for the fact that she is a major softie. Icicle0212:
Van is hilarious and lighthearted, but is so incredibly caring that he surprises me sometimes with his endless wisdom. He's open-minded, and much more of a lover than a fighter! greenfox3456:
Benji is a close friend of mine; always thoughtful of others and very welcoming! He was one of the first people on 7cups who made me feel like part of the community, and I can never thank him enough, though I do try by giving him oreos and skittles. Sydney113:
SydnEy has a very positive and loving energy that follows her into whatever room she enters. She's very lovable and the kindest person I have ever met! I don't even feel that bad when she steals my chips.
~ And a quick shoutout to my mentors @hopedreamlove and @24Help1! ~***Feel free to text me about anything, I can hold a conversation pretty well (especially if it's about shrimp)***
I'm here for you when you're giving up, when you're exhausted.
I'm here for you when you've got no more left.
When you're overwhelmed by the bleak truth and vast helplessness of it all, the ache, the emptiness..
I'll listen to your words or your silence, whichever you give me.
I'm here for you when there's nothing left to say..
Standard Availability is specific to my status bubble being Green. If it is not green, then I am not available for new chats.
If for some reason it is green but I am not responding, please note that I am generally only available during the hours of 10am-11pm CST. If you are contacting me outside these hours because the status is green, it is a site glitch. It has been determined that there is a current problem with my status in the search results; it shows me as always available. Please refer to the chat window for my current status and understand that I am unable to control the errors that occur on the website.
Hi! My name is Lynn, and I'm glad you've found me! I'm a trained listener with a degree in English and psychology as well as professional training in peer counseling. I am NOT a professional psychologist, and I cannot provide therapy services. My scholarly focuses were in ethnic, cultural and gender studies, and psychological studies in abnormal psychology and human sexuality. You'll find me to be exceptionally open-minded and able to talk about practically anything that is on your mind. I am GLBTQ+ friendly. I have personal experience with a number of things, and my professional training has focused mostly on sexuality, depression/anxiety management, and autism spectrum disorder. In my free time, I enjoy writing, movies, and MUSIC!!! Feel free to reach out to me anytime I'm online, and if I'm not, I'll respond to messages as soon as I can after getting notice.
Please read previous member reviews before connecting with me. If you're a fellow listener, I appreciate your interest, but I will hold you accountable to the listener agreement and will not provide emotional wellness support outside the parameters of that agreement, no exceptions!
I am, in general, an acute situation listener. I focus on immediate needs. This means I'm not likely to "just chat" though I am open to doing so. Just note that I focus on emotional crisis first. I do not have long-term relationship availability at this time.
I am also a person living with ASD. My vocabulary and style of speech has been accused of being mean, harsh, aggressive, you name it, I've heard it. I cannot help it, and I cannot change it. Believe me, I've tried. If you're sensitive to that sort of thing, it's best to move on! This being said, I am a person and I have feelings. All I can do is try my best, but I limit my support list for a reason and ask certain questions at the start so we can be on the same page.
My style is to talk about progressive approaches and necessary steps, whether or not they "feel good"... I'm not one to try and package up harsh realities in fuzzy packages. I firmly believe that every adult has the ultimate responsibility for their feelings and their response to those feelings, so a discussion with me will be about accountability, self-honesty and can sometimes be a "rude" reality check. My expectation for members that talk to me is that they have read this description and accept that this is what they will get from me; that I expect them to be a grown adult, able to speak about issues with maturity and a desire for affirmation and change, and will understand that it is up to them and them alone where the power lies. I am simply a facilitator in your own conversation with yourself; if something I say is sharp, hits home, there is a reason.
Generally speaking, I do not provide support for relationship issues, domestic violence, sexual trauma, discussions of incest and/or other non-consensual sexual experiences. I do not provide detailed discussions of sexual desires, fetishes or dysfunctions; if you need help in this area, I recommend working with a professional.I cannot discuss self-harm, suicidal ideation/events, or abuse events. Please seek support from another listener if you need this kind of help, or reach out to suicide.org
As any listener on here has the right to do, I reserve the right and ability to set conversational boundaries and protect myself as an emotional being. If at any time I feel that either involved party is at risk during our conversations, I will advise as much and do my best to direct the member to the best path.
While I have professional training and education, I cannot provide therapy services or fill in as a replacement for your mental health professional.

About Me:Hi everyone I’m Arianna a 17 year old inactive teen listener tackling her last year of high school along with 7 Cups, and cousinhood every single day! Even though my “legal” name is Arianna please feel free to call me Ari or Aria if you wish! To help get you guys accustomed to me here’s a few fun facts about me when I’m not here working. #1. I’m the second to oldest cousin of about 12 children so when I’m not here I’m often watching, snuggling with, or reading a book to a child. #2. I take my education very seriously to the point where I’m often spending about 12 hours at a time on homework. #3. Oftentimes when I’m free from all of my responsibilities you can find me curled up with some book in the corner because I love reading so much. And finally #4. I love to watch YouTube in my spare time especially family vlogs. Welp that’s just a little bit about me so thank you so much for checking out my profile, and I hope I see you around either through my discussions, or somewhere in the forums! I hope you have a amazing day/night! 💜
