want a friend

Hello Everyone,
My name is Abby. I would like a friend. I want a friend who exceptsme for who I am and not just my blindness. A lot of people don't talk to me because I'm blind. I don't have very many friends. I like to hang out, chat with friends, knitt, run, and read fanticy and history books.
I'm in my early 20s now. I'm posting on this board because I feel more comfortable being friends that are teens. I don't know why.
Write back here if you want to be my friend.
Chat soon,
Abby aka the chick with the stick

Re: want a friend

Hi Abby? My name is Piper. I'm new to this blog. My hobbies are playing musical instruments, reading all kinds of books, listening to music, watching educational and comedy tv shows, hanging out with my family and friends, and learning new things. I'll be your friend. I also like people who accept me for who I am as a person who possesses unique qualities both inside and out. I'm really looking forward to getting to know more about you all. Until next time, Piper.

Hi! I'm Lauren, a 20-year-old sighted (albeit kinda googly-eyed) Canadian. Right now, I'm partway through a science degree, so that takes up a lot of my time, but when I do have a little extra time, I enjoy biking, reading, and take part in a tex-based sailor role-play online. If you're looking for a pen-pal (keyboard pal?) of sorts, I'd like to try... see if we hit it off and get along.

Hello sighted girl,
I would like to be your friend. I'm in my 20s now, but it's easier for me to have friends that are younger. I'm not sure why this is. Anyways, what do you like to do for fun?
Hope to chat with you soon!
Sorry I didn't reply until now, I didn't think to check the board until this morning.

Hi Abby,

I'm glad you've posted here. If you want to meet local young adults who are blind or visually impaired, try searching for a local agency who hosts a peer support group. Here's our service directory:
