BLAHTherapy is a new random chat system that aims to render a noble service. In general terms, those who use it are either offering others a shoulder to cry on, or they are venting their frustrations and innermost fears themselves.
When you fist arrive on the site, then, you will be confronted with these two options for signing in: start chatting as a listener, and start chatting as a venter. You can swap sides later on, of course and be at the other opposite end.
Listening to someone as he vents his angst is mostly a matter of common sense, really, but the ones who devised the site were intelligent enough to include some reference materials. These include a guide for good listening along with an article named “Am I Normal?”.
At the end of the day, the chance of having another person listen to what worries you is not only liberating – it can actually help you find a solution once and for all. And even if you can’t solve the problem in its entirety, having a fresher perspective is always helpful…
And perhaps these privacy issues are the source of anxiety and worry bringing an influx of users to the site “Blah Therapy”. This new website pairs random strangers together as “venters” and “listeners”, however, when we tried to unload our feelings the site was down due to an overload of users.
BLAH Therapy is a web based chat application which allows users to meet random strangers around the world and converse with them. This is an application where people can meet other people, and without disclosing their full identity they can discuss about their problems and vent out issues which are bothering them.
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, andSoshiku) 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.
There’s no question about it — airing a complaint and getting it off of your chest can be relieving. Letting a secret or a complaint sit inside of us can hurt.
The word “vent” calls forth images of air, smoke, or steam escaping through an opening from a confined area — like carbonation from a soda bottle. It’s no surprise, then, that we describe ourselves as feeling “bottled up” when we’ve got something major to vent.
And now there’s a new way to do it online at blahtherapy.com.
BLAH Therapy’s premise is simple — it’s a chat website designed to let you twist that proverbial soda bottle lid anonymously and seek a release of pent-up steam. Once you arrive at the site, you’re prompted to play the role of either “Venter” or “Listener”. As a Venter, you’re given the floor to talk about anything that needs to be released from your mind. As a Listener, your job is to, well, listen.
If random chat site Omegle was too boring for you, Chatroulette was too risque or if you just foster the overwhelming urge to tell strangers about your problems (who doesn’t?), you might want to check out BLAH Therapy.
BLAH Therapy launched this week with a noble purpose, according to its creators: To allow total strangers to connect and have a meaningful conversation whereby one or the other may hash out his/her issues and problems.
Essentially, you can choose between being a “Venter” or a “Listener,” and then act accordingly…
