    Made A New Friend And Can Barely Talk To Him...

    It's somebody I met online. I was depressed and was venting my feelings, he happened to read them and liked my story...Here on EP! He's my age... He's not in the same country, I haven't had a long heart to heart with him or anything.. I was at a point of total loss. I'd been...

    Timestamps?

    Has anyone worked out how to get the site to display the times messages were sent etc in their own timezone rather than GMT-6? I've set the "timezone" thing on my profile to GMT, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.

    It's A Bit Difficult

    Most of my friends are literally on another continent, so I'm always atleast 5-15 hours behind or forward. I wake up when they're sleeping or vice versa. I can talk to them now cuz I'm on summer vacation, I don't think I'll be able to when school reopens.

    I'm Right In the Middle.

    I'm in the GMT time in the middle.. Most of the time my friends are just going to school when I've just come back.. or they're going to sleep when its still the middle of the afternoon for me. It can be sort of annoying sometimes when I really want to talk to someone but as...
