But I soon realised that there were more people on this website than the first three young guys I talked to. I talked to a US man struggling with severe medical symptoms that made life almost impossible.
It wasn’t just college guys who struggled with opening up to their friends. He hadn’t seen a doctor despite the debilitating effect it was having on his life because he couldn’t afford the medical bills.
She had a male best friend whom she had been close with for 15 years.
His girlfriend of two years was immensely jealous of their relationship and wouldn’t let them spend much time together. But I realised quickly how much this person was craving intimacy.
To be honest I don’t know for sure that any of them were white but all the conversations I had were very #whiteboyproblems.
There was nothing revolutionary about any of these conversations. The typical indie movie story where an outsider white guy has no real connections and overthinks everything.
He had just been diagnosed with ADHD, along with a previous diagnosis of depression and anxiety.
