I joined the site yesterday and decided to go into the chat room only to find one member in there, but when I said hello, they left. I don't usually have that effect on people lol. Nevertheless I'll be going back in at some point when it's a little busier.
The internet and sites like this has provided us with the opportunity to talk to people who we may never be able to meet, but with whom we can chat and share opinions. I'm sure the original poster will find lots of people to chat to and make friends with.
