Hello there, I listen to those over 18 years old. I've overcome a lot in life and would like to help by listening to you. I am very straight forward and will always be honest, and open minded. I focus on positivity, mindfulness, and self awareness. I take a realistic view on life. If I'm online, then please feel free to start a chat. If I'm offline, then send me a message and we can set up a time to connect.
Currently not able to take on new chats
I'm a teenager, and sometimes I feel like I see the world differently to everyone else.
When people talk to me, I help them explore their emotions and I offer support and guidance to anyone who wants it. I am also a verified listener.
I love to help people and learn more about the world around me.
I enjoy writing, playing the piano, and I LOVE drinking tea
especially peppermint ;) ☕ ♋

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.
Just being there for someone, just giving them a hug or just listening to them when they need it the most can do wonders...
I have been there... Craved for those simple gestures... Now I'm here to walk with you, as a silent friend, as a non-judging companion...
Poke me when I'm online... Drop me a message when I'm offline... I'll surely get back to you...
I'm an ordained rabbi (and verified LISTENER!!), from a secular upbringing. Every human has an important place in this world, which means... YOU ARE IMPORTANT!!! If you're looking for an intelligent, kind and thoughtful ear, you've come to the right place!
Hi, I'm Adam! I have been told by my friends and other people who have talked o me that I am a great listener, I am very easy to talk to, and have helped quite a few people. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and I want to be a therapist in the future. I think that helping others and altruism is one of the key elements to happiness, so that's why I do this. I've gone through a lot in my life and that helps me empathize with people who are often misunderstood. I will listen to just about anything.
