So far it looks like no one lives near each other lol. Could try to get people together and skype or some kind of communication program to talk to people. Then progress to video at some point once people get more comfortable. Would be nice to meet in person but its hard when everyone is from all over the world. Also you'll have to set up times and such because of the same reason or have certain time zones meet at certain times for the talking. Just throwing ideas out there!

I can't do much, but I'd be happy to talk to people over skype on call and such to help them gain conversation skills. That's what I did and it helped me.

Otherwise good luck to every body else. Hopefully something like this will change people.

Hello firemage and everyone, an idea that just came to my mind. Maybe we could arrange a get together online? Like we could make groups and try to go on tinychat or something. I dunno if this sounds far fetched and I have never really had the chance to cam up.

Got another one

Once you make the group or get a group together that want to do the talking/skype thing. After you become comfortable with them and open up, you start i guess being a kind of support group. Then you can start challenging, daring, or whatever you want to call it for people to go out and do stuff. Like after one you get done talking and such, can say for people to go out and walk around in a park and come back and tell us how it went. Mall, store, talk to a random stranger, volunteer in the community or something like that. You wouldn't just talking, you'll be doing something and know that you've got someone going through it with you even though they aren't there. Would be better if somone lived closer to each other.

That could encourage people because their anxiety may be reduced after seeing someone else go through it

Someone create a circle in Google+ and the we use Hangout to meet up. Easiest way by far.

I'd be willing to help set it up and get it going if you ever decide what you guys want to do.

This sounds interesting. Today my therapist once again tried hammering home the point that I have to try different things that will enable me to talk to people. However, I'm old, and probably nowhere near any of y'all.

OK, let's make first move and exchange our skype names!
Skype is best way to get know each other.

Why must I be so insecure?? jeez,this whole thing seems like a good idea nevertheless.

No one can test with me and live to tell the tale.

Hustle all day.
YOLO is useless.
The weak survive while the strong thrive.
Meh...
I guess life could be worse or could it?
Because nothing seems to be getting better, stormy day cloudy weather...Be strong regardless,dont break like glass instead put your enemies through glass I always say.

The idea makes me anxious, but socially I guess I could benefit from the support. I'm open to trying it.

I guess you can count me in, but I'm just wondering if this is all hype. Although, there is something funny about a long list of people who are willing to chat but never do.
