What brought you here? What keeps you here?

  • I found tws in the beginning of December 2018 late one night when I couldn’t sleep and didn’t feel like reading all night(again). I literally googled bored and want to chat online and then searched for the safer sites as I didn’t want a “date chat site”. Glad I did. I met some fun and really cool people from all over the world and enjoyed talking to them. Some of the first people I met here were Chaos King, BelaHella and Durwin and a long list of others. They kept me company at night when I could not sleep and made me laugh 😂 often. It’s those friends that keep me coming back. I’ve gotten to know some better than others and few are also on other social media avenues with me. The world is a much smaller place now thanks to tws and other social sites. I would never have met any of you otherwise. 💜
    So what brought you here and why do you stay? Or why are you leaving if you plan to.

  • Bored. Lonely. The only chat I found via the Android app store that didn't want my phone number.

    I keep coming back because I am great at making bad decisions 😁

    I think I have said how I found this place before 2 times 😂 .. but of course google search bring me here . I stayed here for many reasons when a reason became useless another new reason showed up .. I might leave this but I not yet plan to leave this site

  • 30th March, 2017: I had switched off my phone to avoid distractions and was tired of studying and felt like talking to somebody, so google searched ‘Stranger Chat’, found TWS, and engaged with users on the Random Chat for a few days. (Yes, been 2 effing years.)

    Thereafter, I had various stints on and off the site. I have toggled between Random, Global, Banter, Voice and Main site. Obviously, I haven’t been here for the entire 2 years. My active state has hardly been for more than an year.

    And my next Plan of Action is a secret.
    My unpredictability makes me a mystery, and that is how I would like it to stay. 🙂

    P.S.: Thanks to you, many people got an online mumma. Your presence has been enlightening, and the talks with you has been entertaining. I hope that your Polygamy wish gets fulfilled 😛

    I think i've replied to topics like this before but.... HERE WE GO AGAIN! 😏

    The start of 2018 was being rough for me, I've been tho a harsh period and I was feeling quite lonely. Some night I decided to google "talk with strangers" and I ended up in random chat...
    Decided to keep visiting the site and eventually found someone in the same chat that eventually disconnected and made me curious enough to make an account here to try and reconnect with the said person and that's when I joined in TWS community... I made some cool friends and that, along with the new users that show up every now and then keeps TWS interesting to me, sometimes making me be much more active and some others just... lurking

    My story started long time ago in a galaxy far far away in August 2017 (or maybe it was the end of July). I was curious about to talk with someone from the other side of the world, and also it could be a good practice to speak a foreign language. I googled and found a TWS random chat. It was overwhelmed with pervs and other strange persons. Good point to start 😂 It was fun to troll them, but it wasn't a purpose of my presence there. Normal people were also, I had a lot of nice dialogs and conversations, but it wasn't so easy to find them. I reminded myself a goldminer, who is trying to find brilliants in a sand.

    A year had past and I decided to join the community. I was tired from random chat, cause sometimes it requires an hours before you find a someone adequate and my mind need a place to vent out. Also this forum reminded be about the old web, that was before the 2010. A web without a strict personification, where everyone can play a role in a theater. Even if it was a theater of single actor. And that's how about @spaceboy came on stage, a bit weird alien inspired by David Bowie's songs and my own thoughts.

    First people, whom I met there were @Lurker (Do you remember, we still need to conquer the world? Lol.) and Nate (miss him, he was one of TWS community milestones). Life is shitty, but we can handle it as sun is rising every day and brings us laugh, funny moments and supershit ( @TheRisingSun - it was about you my friend. ) Also I met lots of talented people like @heyitszoey, @cjko, @DayShifter . I could mention more names, but it will become a long list. In the august I met @Bela-Hella. She appeared suddenly. I still don't understand how it was happened, but as she appeared for me, she began to know about me much more that others and become one of the closest friends.

    What keeps me here? Of course my friends.
    Despite that there are lot of junk in this forum, there are lots of talented and smart people from all over the world. Despite of our different origins, our different visions, our different problems there are lot so common in us.

    As for me, when I will have enough time I will continue to play my role - a bit silly, a bit weak parody, a bit tragedy, a bit comedy. Just don't forget to read between the lines and letter.

    Love you all, my friends.
    This is @spaceboy. Signing off.

  • @nightshifter Literally just thought I could use ten minutes breaks from studies to talk to people and give my mind the space it needs.
    Spoke to one random dude one day, for over an hour, that's 50 minutes past my break-time limit.
    I didn't know if I was being catfished or what, but it was fucking good.
    One, we connected alot
    Two, I accidentally disconnected the chat.
    Joined TWS to find the dude, only to find SO MANY BRILLIANT PEOPLE and learn things about them and teach them things.
    It's been a good trip.

    @spaceboy Oh it was August mmmm nearly a year within months from now. I also dunno how I appeared maybe it was like a mushroom suddenly exist lol, anyway thank you for the friendship and for trusting me so much even your personal struggles.. 🙂

  • TWS kindof is like the real world. I mean you meet lots and lots of different people, weirdos of all kinds, pervs, and lots of good-hearted warm gents. If you go to facebook or such, you instantly get stuck into the bubble with the same kind of weirdness you subscribe too. It's kinda boring. On TWS you're confronted with each and every kind...

    And you become friends with some and learn interesting things from others. There'll always be surprises... It never gets boring. Except when there is a low tide again (everyone is on another shore) hmm...

    A few years ago I was in this exact spot in Sweden, all alone so i wanted some company to lighten up the party since i got my paws on a bottle of Finnish happyness. I lit the campfire, got comfy with a nice view on the lake, and headed to Omegle.


    I kept getting banned on Omegle for skipping wieners to fast so i googled for an alternative and arrived at TWS in its babystage.
    Back then it was just 1vs1 chat and there were no wieners (they hadn't found it yet) and nobody asked for M/F at the start of the convo.
    Met alot of great people back then.

    Stayed because the addiction took over 🤗

    do you really want to know what brought you here and what keeps you here?:

    Well, to begin with, one of the main reasons what brought me here, would be boredom, you'd think, "Well, it's a simple reason", but actually my reasoning goes beyond what you think, the big question is, what does it consist of? frankly, for me boredom is more than a concept, by the fact of getting bored, one instinctively begins to perform actions to be able to eliminate that internal boredom that one possesses, certain actions can become absolutely absurd, as there can be things that one always wanted to do and is given the opportunity, well, this could be a case, to do something that I have not done before.

    Now, what keeps me here, well the reason for that question would be because for some reason, I feel that this site has something that catches my attention, something that sometimes I don't even know what it can be, a mystery that to date has not been solved, and that sooner or later I will have to solve in any way possible.

    I just had an idea. People talk about safe spaces all the time these days right? Spaces where there is no hate, and everything is safe and nobody gets offended...

    I like the idea of a safe space, I'd just define it a little bit different. To me a safe space is a place where you can spout all kinds of dangerous and crazy ideas, without getting mobbed to death. (not even by a twitter mob)... Maybe tws is such a space to a certain degree, I wonder...

  • @nightshifter I got what I asked for I guess

    Well, I just wish people wouldn't change their identity so freakin often here... Even though I'm guilty of that two 🤷
