There are over 100 million sites on the Internet. 100 million! You might think you know about all the important ones (CollegeCandy, Gmail, Google, TFLN…), but there are thousands of other sweet sites out there (like Life is Beautiful, Go Try It On, and Soshiku) and more showing up every day! We get it – it’s not easy or fun sifting through the crap and porn to find those gems, so we’re gonna bring the gems to you. Just sit back, kick up those feet and allow us to introduce you to the diamonds in the internet rough.]
When I’ve got a problem that can’t be solved, the only way I know how to feel better is to eat things dipped in frosting vent to someone else and hope they’ll give me good advice. Usually, the people I go to are those closest to me: my boyfriend, my BFFs, or my mom—but what to do when I can’t go to any of them about a particular crisis (because it concerns them or it’s something I just don’t want to share)?
I recently discovered a little site called Blah Therapy that solves the problem of not having someone around when I need someone to vent to. Basically, Blah Therapy is a chatroom site whose purpose is to bring complete strangers together to help each other with their problems by pairing those needing help with those willing to help.
When you enter the site, you can choose to be either a “Venter” or “Listener”, and you are randomly assigned a chat partner according to which option you choose. You can then pour your heart out to some random stranger, or listen as some random stranger pours their heart out to you.
What’s really great about Blah Therapy is it gives people a chance to air out their problems with total anonymity to a complete stranger, without the risk of being judged or made fun of. (It also gives the venter a chance to vent while simultaneously eating frosting out of the tub with their finger, and no one is the wiser.) Also, since they aren’t personally invested, strangers will give the most honest advice, which will be best for the venter in the long run.
Give Blah Therapy a try the next time you’re up late worrying about a problem in your life and need someone to talk to, or if you want to do a little good and help someone else out. Either way, you’ll feel better after visiting Blah Therapy.
