(TL;DR : ☑ Depression ☑ Mental (Disorders) Illness ☑ Sexual Issues ☑ Trauma Support ☒ Financial Stress ☒ Gender Identity Issues ☒ Relationship Issues and Breakups ☒ Self-Esteem ☒ Self-Harm ☒ Sexting  ☒ Social Anxiety)⊗⊗⊗ Above all else, I'd like to specify that I am unable to help those with problems relating to self-esteem (i.e. negative body image, shame and feelings of worthlessness) and those who are struggling with self-harm. This should be noted by those who have not personally requested me, therefore I'm sorry for any inconvenience. ⊗⊗⊗I might not be the best listener for the following topics: Breakups (as I'm unable to help those looking to move on) and other relationship issues; eating disorders, body image, and self-esteem issues; exercise motivation; financial and work stress; grief; self-harm; social anxiety; and transgender issues.I do not accept personal requests that pertain to these problems. Please seek another listener that will better compliment your needs.My name's Katariina; I'm very easy-going, open-minded, and can understand the majority of situations. I'm a very honest person, therefore what I tell you might not be what you want to hear, but be assured that I always have the best intentions. If you find that I am being too insensitive, you'd be able to inform me of your opinion and I'll be able to change my behaviour accordingly. Yet, I'm a stereotypical Canadian most of the time: kind and polite, not to mention maple syrup loving.I am familiar with a variety of mental disorders including: Anxiety, autism (and Asperger's syndrome), bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder (BPD), depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociative identity disorder (DID/MPD) and other psychosis-related disorders.I accept all requests dealing with the mentioned, sometimes even when I'm marked as busy. If you request me with a different issue, I may turn you away.I do take chats on loneliness, although I am not very talkative and might struggle to carry a light conversation.I'm comfortable taking chats that are sexual in nature if I am being respected during the chat (i.e., I will not continue a chat with someone who has made a pass at me).Those interested to know more about me: I am more logical than I am emotional, I possess many extensive philosophical views and I am of Jewish belief, however, I practice Buddhism. Also, I have obsessive compulsive personality disorder (OCPD).Be warned that I do have a "suck it up attitude" and might not be the right listener for some struggling with depression, and I do not chat with those who would like to talk about self-harm and having low self-esteem.If you see that I'm online, don't hesitate in sending me a request.

ONLY TAKING CHATS WITHIN MY TOPICS. IF POSSIBLE PLEASE READ MY PROFILE BEFORE SENDING A PERSONAL REQUEST. If you're in a too bad condition at least make sure you want to talk about something within my areas of expertise.Ich spreche auch Deutsch.Urgency first: If you are facing an acute situation like panic attack, flare up or urgent urge you don't need to read the rest of the text and can just drop me a request. I'll take care of you asap. If you're not in a situation like that please read on to see if I am the right Listener for you. If yes you're very welcome to contact me but you may have to wait a bit incase I am occupied with an urgent case, specially if my status is set to busy (orange).  Hello and welcome to 7cups. I'm Nadine from Germany, 22 years old and glad you read this. I had and still have to struggle with the things I offer support with and that's why I think I can help you with it. I understand you well and maybe I have suggestions, techniques or skills to help you. My top areas are living with chronic pain or disability, self-harm and panic attacks. I also have non-epileptic (dissociative) seizures which are quite much under control by now and I'd like to exchange experience about this anytime.In the following I will describe myself as a Listener and explain in what case I am the right one for you. It does not mean that I don't welcome other people. I just don't want to waste your time and want to make it easy for you to find a suitable Listener. If you select me as your Listener and I think there is a chance that I might be able to help then I will surely try my best to do so. Yet   I do not take chats with any kind of sexual content, not from Members and Guests, nor from Listeners. If you message me with that I will tell you to leave and if you don't do so I might not have another opportunity than blocking you.If I was to describe myself as a listener I would say I'm mostly supportive, reassuring and encouraging. But despite all my empathy and understanding I still tend to be somewhat challenging. If you are looking for someone to pity you or just an empty space to vent to you might be better off with another listener. I am the right one if you are ready to fight in order to make a change for yourself. I can assure that you have my greatest support if you are willing to work with me and I will be here to guide you through whatever struggle you may face. So let us unite our strengths and try to pull you out of your misery. Please understand that it may take a lot of effort, time and patience before there will be any significant change for you but I can assure you that it will be all worth it in the end. However my favorite saying that I took from the saw movies which I really enjoy (don't worry ,I'm not a creep) is "CHERISH YOUR LIFE" and I hope i can help you to do that too along the way.Send me a personal request by chatting to me or leaving me a message if: - you want to learn strategies to live with chronic pain, especially such that gets worse in flare ups (1) - you want to manage daily life better with a disability (2) - you want to stop self-harm (3) - you want to cope better with panic attacks and possibly get rid of them (4) - you want to talk about non-epileptic (dissociative/conversion /PNES ) seizures and eventually defeat them (5)- you want to talk about a trauma and /or any kind of dissociation, including DID (6)If you send a personal request please start the chat with a code number from 1 to 5 to show you have read this. I only take requests about these topics, thanks for understanding.I do provide long term support as well! Let me know straight away if you wish that. If I am offline you can drop me a message still and I will get in touch when I see it.You should always try and choose a topic even for general requests as long as the thing you want to talk about matches any. This increases your chances to get connected to a suitable listener as quick as possible. As well if you are in condition for this you should always try and find some time to leave a detailed and honest rating and review after each chat with a listener. It's not only that you can give something back to a helpful listener with a good one but mainly that you can help other members to find the suitable listener for them. It should roughly include the topic you talked about, what was good or bad about the chat and if you would recommend the listener to others struggling with the same. Don't worry, you stay anonymous and also you don't have to do it if you're not comfortable.

Greetings! I'm Viet V. Nguyen [15], and I'm currently completing my 3rd year of high school in San Jose, California. I enjoy listening to conversations about people with personal issues and providing my feedback to them. I plan to pursue a major in science/health-related fields with intentions to become either a nurse or teacher. That's really it, I promise I'm not that boring once you get to know me and I get to know you :D. My favorite animals are sea elephants because they're cute, blubbery, and huggable. Here's a picture of a sea elephant, they're adorable: My current songs playlist: Might have curse words, so be advised.

Chronic pain is my passion, as I have it myself and love helping other cope with it and feel understood!!! I also can talk about medical conditions as I have a lot of experience with medicine and chronic illness especially and am open to discussing that topic. I myself suffer from severe hypotension as well as POTS and CFS, as well as chronic pain.  I have set some hours for myself, I try and be available for longer but these are my basic hours: M-T: 3:00 PM EST- 4:00 PM EST, 8:30 PM EST- 9:30 PM EST.

Hey there! I am 30. I am from Panama. I love music... Let's chat! Listener twin:  charmingTime I am a verified listener and a peer supporter as well. Also, just for you to know I am comfortable listening any of the topics, it's just that there are some that I still need some training so I'd rather let other listener trained in the topic to speak to you for better attention. I am working on that =) Please not sexting, not flirting for this is not a place for this. If you are struggling with, for instance, incest or obsession with pornography or something like that is sexual related but it's a real problem that affects your every-day life or just want to vent about it, you have a lending ear in me.  If you need someone to listen to you more often that is out of my possibilities, please consider looking another listener at: https://www.7cups.com/BrowseListeners/ Also, you can look for a long-term listener or a therapist. It's completely up to you, you know best what do you need and what suits you better.  Right now I am not accepting long-term members, sorryyy but it's really hard for me. I'll make, however, follow-ups from time to time   Thanks for understanding.

PLEASE READ FIRST  Hello, my name is Crys and I would love to help you. I am willing to chat about relationship or work stress related issues. I do not tolerate any form of inappropriate chats. You will be blocked immediately.  If you are a listener and need help as a listener and/or pertaining to the site, I'd be happy to assist you if I am able. If you are a listener and and would like to talk about a personal issue please switch to your member account for the courtesy of the members I am already speaking with.  As a listener, we are trained in Active Listening, which is listening in a way that shows compassion and empathy. Listeners will ask you open ended questions to help guide the conversation. It is meant to be a supportive environment for you to grow and learn more about yourself. We are here to listen and support you in your time of need, thus advice will not be given. Thank you for your understanding. If you are suicidal please go to crisischat.org or imalive.org to speak with a trained professional.If you are depressed please seek a professional therapist.

***As I want to make it equal for everyone who contacts me, I decided to make strict rules*** 1. If your issue relates to a sexual matter, please do not discuss it with me. However discussions that relate sexual assault or relationship breakdowns are totally acceptable. However engaging in role-play on 7 Cups isn't allowed by the site's Terms of Service. 2. If you have a medical condition that relates to all forms of genitalia, skin conditions, etc please get in touch with a medical professional. 3. If you need a Listener right away, click on the Connect Now button or look for someone who is available in Browse Listeners. I'm unfortunately not always available to everyone so it would be better to talk to other listeners who are available as well as accept taking long term requests. 4. If you need to discuss personal issues, please ONLY use your Member account. I feel this way, it would give the person better privacy. I will not accept personal issues from listeners unless if it's about their listening experience that went wrong or just want to chat! 4. I know this may sound annoying in which I'm not trying to be but please give feedback to 7cups during or after the conversation good or bad. You do this by tapping the flashing star on the convo or if one of us do end the convo. This goes for all listeners you encounter as it improves our listener experiences!Thanks to those taking the time reading the rules!My name is Geraldine and I am 24  years old. I'm also unsure what I'm going to do next in college student.I love being a listener because people relate to what im going through and that we help each other too! :)
