I quickly wrote my entry and sent it forward to be approved and it was appeared on the site and in no time at all. Within minutes I was receiving emails from other members who had read the entry and felt that they wanted to respond.
I smiled to myself; I could never feel lonely on the site because it was so easy to strike up a conversation with someone after writing a brief diary it opened so much communication. Even the very shy members then had an excuse to contact me.
One such member called Philip sent me an email saying. I love your positive attitude to life, you seem to see the funny side of everything and I am surprised that you have not been snapped up before because you seem a really nice person.
I read his profile and noted that it said that he had been a member on the site for quite a while, he was looking for friendships like me and he was an avid writer of diary entries. I sent him a reply thanking him for his kind comments and said that I too enjoyed reading his entries. I also asked him what he got from the site.
Fairly soon I received his reply, which told me that he had indeed been a member of the site for above a year and he could not imagine not being a member. He had made many friends all over the UK and had traveled and holidayed with a couple of other members.
I had seen other diaries in the past who had said that they were looking to go abroad to do some traveling and exploring who then asked the question is there anyone who would like to accompany them. All above board separate accommodation no strings attached and I thought that was such a brave thing to do, but after reading Philips email I could understand how people could connect and make good friends and new travel companions.
We sent emails backwards and forward for the next hour or so he lived 300 miles away from in a beautiful part of the UK which had always appealed to me. He asked me if I had planned any holidays this year and I replied saying no which was obviously due to the fact that I had nobody to go with.
Well if you would like to come down to this part of the world I know of a lovely little guest house close to where I live and I would be a willing tour guide to show you the local attractions was he response.
I smiled to myself hmm this good be something that could be viable, lets keep in touch with each other I replied, that may be something I would very much like to do.
I logged off smiling feeling very positive Philip may not be the love of my life but I felt that I had just made another potentially very good friend.
