6:20 pm - Searching for friends...

I'm a 27 year old girl from the UK who has been off and on LJ for years and decided to make a new journal as a clean break. I'm recently married, come from a close but crazy and currently expanding family and am luckily (but not-so-happily) employed. I have some ongoing health struggles. Books are my passion but shoes are my weakness. I love to read and shop. I'm also a TV addict, music enthusiast, sometimes gamer, and incredibly clumsy. I have a house full of animals who are my world and I volunteer with animals in various places and ways. I am looking to meet other LJers who share some of my interests (see profile) and/or can relate. I don't mind where people are from, what they do for work/fun, and am happy to be open minded about their opinions if they'll do the same with mine. I love getting to know people from all walks of life but would be particularly happy to meet some fellow LJers close to my back yard (England).

6:27 pm - 39 year old Pagan looking for new friends

I've been on LJ for about 10 years. In that time I have made some great friends, but sadly the pull of the dreaded Facebook has been too much for some and they have left their journals dormant. I am now looking for more friends who actively still use LJ.

So a little bit about me. I am a 39 year old Englishman living in SouthWest Scotland. I have two ex-wives under my belt, but each one gave me a child which I love most dearly. My oldest is My daughter Hannah (11) and my youngest is my son Corvin (18 months).
I am now in a new relationship with someone I have cared about for a long time.
I work part time as a cleaner. This allows me to earn just enough money to pay the bills but gives me plenty of free time with my kids (and that is something money can't buy)
I follow a Pagan path which is quite unique to me, I am a bizarre mix, of shaman, druid, hedgewitch and kitchenwitch. In my Pagan practise I am solitary, which I find works well for me. I love attending pagan camps

9:23 am - looking for friends

These communities seem to be very quiet, so I may not be successful. But one can try lol.

I have had several LJ accounts over the years, and I stopped using them. I have decided to come back to LJ as Facebook is different to LJ and I feel the need for LJ now.
I am a very reserved and solitary person, who follows a pagan path. I am in my 40's, but I am young at heart lol. I have older children and love animals. If you want to know more ... ask lol

Good morning.

First of all, I'd like to ask your pardon for my bad English. I'm student from Russia, my name is Alex. I'm studying the international relations. And I'd like to find new friends in the UK (and to improve my English, of course).

My friends page has become very quiet of late. It seems a bit like an old man's pub at quarter past eleven with just a few isolated individuals sat at tables on their own starring listlessly into the dregs of their pint glass. And so I am looking for some people to fill it with the gently buzz of conversation. Lets get the party started.


I have been on livejournal for over 10 years, I am sure my journal has gone through different phases in that time. Livejournal has been good to me, I have met friends and a wife on here. My journal is about me, my family and views.

I am looking for people who update and perhaps who comment although I don't expect people to comment on every post and I am not likely to do so myself. I am not into fan fiction/RPGer so if that is what your journal is about I am not sure it will work out.

Some of you may have been on my friends page before, if so feel free to re-add me. And if it doesn't work out or my enteries bore you please feel free to unfriend me, there will be no hard feelings.

6:21 pm

I'm in the process of reviving my Livejournal, which I'd started to neglect in the wake of the Great Livejournal Die-off, but now I find myself missing a place to write personal thoughts.

I'm in South Wales, where I work as a mental health nurse. I tend to blog about interesting or unusual things that have happened to me or that I've found on the web.

Speaking of unusual things, I might be meeting David Icke (!!!) next week. So I'll blog about that if I do. :)

3:25 pm - Hello everyone :)

My friends page is mostly made up of community entries and very few personal entries, as a lot of my LJ friends are not active anymore. So I thought it was time to see if I could make some new friends :)

1:07 pm - Oh god..

Right I guess now is the time to pimp myself out!

I will be completely honest, I had stopped updating my journal until today and thought it was time to bring this baby back! Despite not posting I have been successfully stalking my friends and commenting where appropriate so I have never fully left!

Now what brings me to here, well, Id quite like to have a small audience to write to (Im not after a million friends, just a few active people to stalk and for them to stalk me back)

A little about me:
Im 28, Live in Cheltenham, Married, Owns a cat (ideally would be two), No kids, Has awful taste in music, Is back on the diet wagon and a facebook addict. Thats the basics. Anything else you need to know, leave a comment and Ill get back to you!

current mood: hopeful

9:46 am - A-HOY HOY


LJ has gone very quiet so I'm looking for new friends. In fact I am hosting a Friending Frenzy here -http://mcmurphy79.livejournal.com/500149.html feel free to come and look round.

I'm a 32 year old, woman - huh! I still feel like a girl. I'm a youth worker, living in Kent.

I live with my partner (to be married in just under 2 years) and our 2 ex-racing greyhounds. I love dogs and occasionally foster lurchers who are looking for homes.

I love music - The Smiths, The Manic Street Preachers, Mumford and Sons, Dylan, Laura Marling, Prince, Faith No More, Pearl Jam, The Clash, The Who to name a few

I am a lefty, seraching for something, beliefs seem to change depending on where I am in my life. I am currently attending Buddhist Meditation classes and that is really making sense to me.

I write quiet openly and frankly about things. I try to use my journal to be really honest with myself. I like interaction on LJ so am looking for people who like to give and receive comments - but not necessarily people that agree with me, I like a good discussion. I also post pictures of my dogs and things I have been up to.

current mood: hopeful

4:52 pm - Good day all

My flist seems to be getting quiet so I'm looking for a few new people to follow. I've been using the site regularly for ages and love reading about other people's lives.

My name's Suzy, I'm a 21 year old graduate, blogger, geek and aspiring journo. When not playing with words, I'm occasionally bar wench (as well as a massive pub geek), pogonophile and lover of books and all things sci-fi and tech. My livejournal is a mixture of my talking about my life, my friends and various adventures and sexcapades.

So... er... yeah :) Comment and add me. :)

7:01 pm - RTA's... have you heard of them??

I am looking for more interesting email frenzy people to join a "reply to all" email group called Coffee Shop!
Basically, Instead of sending an email to one person, you send to the entire group.

I'm being realistic, Not everyone can reply to emails all through the day as we have work / school and various other things to attend. An email or "diary entry" a day to everyone would be nice.
But i'd like it if everyone who joins up, could stay active enough to send at least a couple emails within every 2 days.
I'm looking for people who will keep emailing. People who like to talk!

Some things that can be posted in emails;

Diary Entries / Day-To-Day Events
Your Poetry / Art / Photography / Short Stories / Music
Asking Advice
Or You Just Want Some Company!

This could be a really fun and interesting little "community"
And a chance to make a nice bunch of friends.

If you're interested or have any questions;
Send me an email: prinzessbtrfly@livejournal.com
Or leave me your email, and i'll contact you.

here is a more in depth explanation:

  • RTA stands for "Reply To All" which means you'll be replying to a whole group rather than 1-to-1
  • we communicate via email, and a lot of people make very close friendships that last years, and some even meet up offline over time.
  • the group has around 13 people in it, it may go up or down depending on people leaving or joining
  • you can expect and receive a lot of email in your inbox, it varies depending on how active it is. sometimes it can be up to 100 a week, or more. you are not required to reply to all of it, because that's just silly. by all means, you can! but i don't think it's possible, because of what applies to you & you have a comment for, and the time you have, etc.
  • imagine pen palling or a forum but over email, that's like an RTA :)
  • you will be "filtering" your email box, e.g you must have time to go through it and delete the emails you don't want to reply to and reply to the ones you like
  • please have the time for this, as well as the time to send email. it isn't difficult, all of us have lives and we still manage it as a hobbie.
  • it takes the whole group to make an RTA active so please try and make the effort to talk to people. if you are a good people-person, like to make conversations and are generally outgoing (although if you're the opposite, most people are outgoing online away) this may help.
  • you must be willing to send your own emails, updates, diary entries, posts of what interests you
  • you will be meeting people from all over the world
  • there is an age range of 16-30.
  • we are willing to open up and be personal, like any sort of friends would. we expect the same from you :)
  • there will be fun things to do that i send out, questions, discussions, picture spams, inspirations and all sorts of other things but remember to send your own! :) we also have weekly activities.
  • no drama, arguments, etc. if you have a problem with someone, reply and sort it out, don't bring it into the whole RTA
  • most of all, we look forward to meeting you & hope you enjoy the rta if you join!

I'm Kerry, 25, female, and living in Cumbria.I have posted here before but in about two weeks I'm about to move to Kettering. (I know, I know but it'l be clear when you read my blog.) I'm pretty terrified. That said, I'm looking for new friends in or around the area. But if you think you might dig me I don't mind where you're from!

A little about me. 
I'm a friendly fatty, not a natural red head, I'm slightly pierced and tattooed, my music taste is more or less metal, with a little rockabilly, psychobilly, thrash, hardcore (though still new to that!), blues, stoner..oh man the list goes on! But you get the jist. I currently work as a residential care worker with autistic teenage boys but when I move I will be working in a residential home for the elderly with a dementia unit. I generally blog about my life but sometimes I talk about things that interest me. 

I guess other than adding me and reading my drivel that's about it!

6:03 pm - c'est moi, n'est pas?

the dreaded bio post! ah well, let's start typing and see where this ends up ;p

I'm Paul, a web designer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. I've been 24 yrs old for the past 7 years, and will be for the foreseeable future ;) having decided that facebook and twitter are no good for the lengthier blogging style ramblings, I'm making a return to LJ. Alas with recent problems the site has been having i find a lot of my friends don't use LJ that much anymore :( So i'm here to see if i can gather a few people for my world dominating experiments, ahem, fun and friendly frolics :D

There is a whole variety of things that i like; Invader Zim, Deathnote, world of warcraft, noodle soup, photography, laughing, and a million other things that are all listed in my bio page i'm sure.
What do i not like? Hmm, why not press some buttons and see if you can find out? lol.

Seen a few people posting on here who look interesting but the posts are a little old so totally unsure if they are still looking for new friends :/ But i like meeting new people on LJ, always up for a chat and a laugh so feel free to come along and add me or give me a poke (nowhere ticklish tho pls). I'm not too bothered about how old people are, but i do have what i call an Adult Filter for anything I need to post of a more adult nature, so all is safe and friendly for those who want it that way, and full of madness and adventure for those who like to fly by the seat of their pants haha.

I will try not to scare you with a photo of myself ;)

el photoCollapse )

so yeah, come along and say hi! Would be a pleasure to meet you all. Whether from the UK or further afield :)

cross posted on a few communities, my apologies!

11:06 am - Hai...

Umm, hello. I'm not sure whether this is a done thing or not, but I am looking for penpals from the UK, because it's cheaper to send letters around and also it's mega-muchly quicker. So yeah. Drop me a line if interested, I'd really appreciate it!

A kind of introduction-y thing for yis.

My name is Damaris, and I am living in Oxford. I am half-English and half-Faroese, but grew up in Istanbul, Turkey (it's a long story). I am currently studying for A Levels, of which I am taking 5, and hoping to go to an awesome university with a good Philosophy department. I was going to apply to Oxford, but seriously messed up the exam I had yesterday and now can't. I'm an idiot sometimes.

I'm a five-year old stuck in a nineteen-year old's body. At least that's what I've been told, it seems pretty impractical to me. Music plays an absofruitly huge part in my life, I'm a crap singer-songwriter, but get a tidy bunch of cash when I busk, which is nice. I play guitar mainly, but also some piano, violin, drums... Oh, and I also play the ukulele (rock on, The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain!!).

A penpal to me is someone who I can read and write to easily, someone who seems to care about what I say, and definitely does about what they say. I'm incredibly opinionated and blunt, to the point where I seem to just say stupid things. But I don't mean to be mean. Anyway, anyone over 17 would be cool, male - female, or both, or neither is cool... Straight, gay, bisexual... I myself lean towards the bisexual side, so be warned.

Umm... What else? You don't have to have the same interests or beliefs or anything as me, in fact that could be prefered, it makes it more interesting to talk about issues then. I must say, this sounds a little weird and almost snobby, it would be much prefered by me, if grammar and spelling were correct-ish. It's really weird how a lot of kids in education still can't spell, not a good sign for the education system... Anyway, I shan't go there. Har har.

One last thing is that I try REALLY hard to reply quickly, and get a little down when others don't, so please if you're interested bear that in mind. I'm an incredibly delicate person, not. Well, whatever.

I really am looking forward to hearing from anyone, so actually, you can forget about pretty much everything I said up there. Did I say that I ramble a lot?

Right. If you are interested, send me an email at abdaelasaheliadah@gmail.com and we shall exchange addresses and whatnot. I don't mind writing first at all.

Ok, I go now. Cheers!            D.

4:14 pm

It's been a while since I went a-friends foraging but all seems pretty quiet on the LJ front these days due to a seemingly mass exodus to places like Facebook and Twitter and I'm finding I only have to scroll down one page to see 24 hours worth of posts!

I'm not very comfortable about pitching myself, even in interview situations I think I present any positive attributes in a rather apologetic fashion, so a while back, I created an introductory post for anyone that is interested in finding out a bit more about me.

At the moment, my thoughts are largely geared towards my wedding day in October this year so any prospective brides out there are more than welcome :)

3:20 pm


My name is Hannah im 22 years old and i live in Exeter, I have previously lived in Newquay and Ash nr Aldershot. I have a 8 month old son and I live with my lovely boyfriend who is also a member of livejournal. I have been on livejournal for a few months now and i have met some really nice people on here and i was hoping to meet a few more as my flist has gone a bit quiet.
At the moment im a stay at home mum, and im fastly aprroaching the stage where i decide to keep it that way or return to work (though i know i'd rather the first option).

I like:-
Going back to Newquay gotta love the scenery and the sandy beaches, im not one for the night life though
Singing and dancing especially when no-one is around as im not very good
When i cant stop laughing and smiling
Reading books though it is hard lately i have read every book i own except one which im trying to read now 'The Unfinished Tales' by J.R.R. Tolkien
Going for walks
Watching sunsets and stars
Staying up late eating junk food
Going to the theatre i go VERY rarely i would love to see Les Miserables its my favourite musical
Laying on the grass by the cathedral in summer
I have started to play the xbox and got a couple of games on the go

Im an open minded, easy going, laid back individual, who is interested in anything and everything you have to say. If you want to know more than take a look at profile or just ask.
It's all up to you now i would love to hear from you

current mood: happy
