Final post.

I have decided to leave EC effective emediatly. I no longer feal that this is the place for me, and will be deleating my account soon after this post. Out of respect to those I have met and made friends with here, I am posting this final message.

Thank you to everyone who has been of support to me over the last several months. I appreciate all the advice, and good times had. And hopefully I have been able to help one or two along the way as well.

Farewell.

Re: Final post.

Hey, at least leave your account open. Another thing, don't think you can escape from that easily... I have your e-mail and I'm going to look for your MSN now

Seriously Lane, don't cut yourself off from us, leave your options open, pop in here from time to time, you never know we might be able to help.

Come and talk to me anytime you want you know where to find me.

Well, if you don't feel like hopping in, don't worry, you can take a rest for a while away from here.

If then you want to come back, we all welcome you still!

If you are leaving, at least leave your account open so you can pop in whenever you feel like it. I don't like the idea of anyone leaving for good.

Re: Final post.

That make the two of us. I just feel like I don't fit in here .I really though that I will have a good time with people who share at least the same story ( sexual orientation) as me. I just had one good friend here and he left. Good luck man and take care. My account is already pending deletion .

Re: Final post.

Bitou, Lane, don't just drop out! Keep your accounts. Why bother deleting them? Suddenly, one day, you're gonna be worried about something, and if you keep your accounts, all you've got to do is drop in and ask. We're always happy to answer.

Sorry to see you both go. Leave your accounts open so you can come back anytime. Even if you do delete them, you can still rejoin if you want to.

Re: Final post.

honestly, I have just read this whole thread. This is what this site is all about, a giant group of friends to love the ones who are struggling until they feel loved.

Lane, honestly, when I saw that you decided not to leave!!! I was so happy. I hope you pop in often man! You have been such a great friend over the past months.

Bitou! hadn't we talked before in the chatroom? If not, I must have seen some awesome messages by you, because I definatly remember your name (which is a lot coming from my short memory).

Made me smile to see you two decide to stick around.

Re: Final post.

It may not apply in your situations, but if you are happy with any aspect of EC, people here or how it's being run, please tell us about it in the Ask The Mods section. It may be something we are already dealing with or it may be something we are completely unaware of, but either way we will try to help. Anything you post there can only be seen by you and the mods; no other members can see it.

We hate it when people announce they are leaving without giving any reason or without giving us a chance to try to sort out the problem first.
