So if anyone wud like to chat please do respond co'z i feel really lonely.im 23,female,live in johannesburg.i cant give out my e-mail address since its a work e-mail address & not my personal one.MALE or FEMALE im just looking for some one 2 talk 2 & share my feelings with.perhaps u could leave ur e-mail address or tel'no.if possible if not we can just chat here.
