Describe your personality and behaviour around groups of people and describe it alone in complete privacy? How about with music you love and scenes to movies you love

What's your opinion?

Hello Everyone,

Just a quick message to say we have started up a new forum on daydreaming. As its a new forum there isn't much content yet but we hope with your input it will grow. It is still a work in progress so any suggestions or offers to moderate would be greatly appreciated. We would really like it if you could join us and share your MD journey with us or even just come along to talk in the chatroom and make a few new friends. We hope to see you there x
