Chat boards are for deep discussions. They are unlikely to help you overcome your loneliness like chat rooms can. People usually go to such sites to express their ideas and get into philosophical discussions about the matter being discussed. If getting involved in deep discussions about loneliness satisfies you then such sites are for you.
What is the difference
between the two? Discussion boards differ from chat rooms because discussion
boards are not live or real-time like chat rooms.
Each has its own...
will get involved in chat room discussions that will draw out your
emotions and you will feel a sense of relief when your emotions have
been drawn out by discussions with another
human being or a group of humans.
Chat board discussions tend to be...
...deeper and satisfying in a
different way. On such boards people get to ruminatively talk about
their emotions and those talks can be deeply satisfying to the writer
and the reader. If you are feeling lonely because there is no one with whom you can have a deep, heart to heart discussion, then you will find chat boards very satisfying.
Some people find conversations in chat rooms to be incredibly
shallow and dissatisfying because of the shallowness. Sometimes, it
helps to participate in a discussion board and then participate in a chat
room to experience the light, shallow and human aspect of the chat
In a discussion board you can write at length about your feelings and
emotions and you will find that participants will actually read through
your post. They will do that even more when they find out that you have
been reading their detailed posts. It is an exchange of close attention.
Participating in a chat room is more like entertainment. The interaction is very light.
Whether you prefer...
to participate in discussion boards or chat rooms
depends on your personality. I have provided information about how to safely participate in chat on the chat page.
To find a...
...good discussion board go to enneagraminstitute.com, search for chat lounge and then search for loneliness or any subject
that interests you. Please use this at a time you cannot be outdoors
enjoying outdoor activity to relieve your loneliness.
You might find
it interesting to look up enneagram in dictonary.com. The word has an
interesting meaning and an interesting root.
Unfortunately, discussion boards are becoming hard to find.
