Thread: I want to make some mer friendos! Come one, come all! <3

  1. #1

    Red face I want to make some mer friendos! Come one, come all! <3

    If anyone wants to have a go at being my friendo, I'd love some mer friendos!
    Not many of my older friendos understand mermaiding and they think it's a silly game or something, so I'd love more people who understand it <3
    I also lost a lot of friends recently, so I feel sorta lonely and isolated...

    The wonderful Mermaid Celeste is a fantastic friendo, of course [<3] but I'd love to build a small pod of friendos, both long-distance and here in Florida! I love and welcome everyone !

    So, more about me:

    • I have a black tom cat named Ris [Ristretto is his full name] and I adopted him from off the streets when he was but a youngin'!
    • I have Von Wilebrand's Disease and I use mermaiding to actually exercise without worrying about personal injury due to my VWD.
    • I'm an avid Xbox One gamer. I love PC, too, but my laptop sucks major butt...
    • I'm a nerd!
    • I am an artist [ my DeviantART ] and was formerly pursuing graphic design and creature designing as a future career, but have decided to just be an all around artist after discovering mermaiding.
    • I'm HUGE on anti-captivity for orcas, dolphins, and other abused and highly intelligent animals. I could talk about Taiji, SeaWorld, etc. for HOURS. Literally!
    • I am also a writer and write little stories about some of my characters.
    • I have 100+ original characters, most of which are horses, aliens/monsters, dragons, dogs/wolves, or cats! They all mean a lot to me as I am using some of them to write afictional biography/comic about myself when I'm older.
    • I adore roleplaying! Usually, I use my characters only, though.
    • I hate talking about politics. It always gets me fired up...
    • I have a wonderful fiance / husband named Lewy. We've been together for almost 4 years now!
    • I adore talking about Christianity, fandoms and games, puns and jokes, life, weird things [like whether or not mermaids are mammals], animals, mermaiding, cosplay, or anything that has to d with helping others! [ex. venting, relationship counseling, etc.]
    • My purpose in life is to spread the Gospel and to make as many people happy and smile before I die! Children and adults alike!
    • I do deal with MDD [Major Depressive Disorder] and anxiety, but it doesn't show very much in my online presence ~
    • I love horses, dragons, dinosaurs, wolves, cats, and anything out of this world <3


    My current fandoms include:
    • How to Train Your Dragon
    • Doctor Who
    • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [all movies/series]

    My favorite games are:
    • Assassins Creed
    • ARK: Survival Evolved
    • Rocket League
    • Red Dead Redemption
    • GTAV
    • Pac-Man
    • most Mario Bros. games


    My favorite book series are:
    • Warriors
    • Animorphs
    • Dinotopia


    My favorite movies are:
    • Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron ★
    • How to Train Your Dragon
    • Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles [2012 series] / [2014 movie]
    • Godzilla [2014]




    If anyone read all of that, you're a trooper :P I know I'm quite the talker sometimes!

    I can't wait to meet some other mers!!! <3

    Friends are always fun. I'm from way up in Wisconsin, but I've got an internship down in Florida in may! I'll be there for a month. I've never had any other mermaid friends, and I'm also a very big nerd!

    Wisconson, eh? Do you get to swim often? Or is there anywhere that allows mer tails? :O I'm sure the lakes are FREEZING this time of year!

    That sounds awesome! Where in Florida will you be staying? What's your internship for? And there's a ton of beautiful springs here - if you get the time I'd love to take you to one of them !!! They're mostly crystal clear with a gorgeous nature backdrop. The waters can be cold, though!

    Nerds unite!

    Nice to meet you, Mermaid Clara!
    You've got the name of one of the Doctor's companions, eh? Epic

    I've never heard of pea puffer fish, but now that I looked them up, they're so cute !!! <3 All of your pets sound so adorable ! Do your pufferfish get along with your bettas, or are they in separate tanks?

    I, too, love the Sims I recently got Sims 3 with the Pets expansion and it's so addicting ! I have yet to get Sims 4, but I'm hoping they have a Pets expansion for that, too... I'm addicted to puppies and ponies!~

    YES, I collect Hot Topic buttons, too! I used to wear a satchel and it had buttons all over the strap and front pocket because I adored them and wanted to show them off. Sadly, a lot of them fell off in school before I graduated but I can replace them anytime~

    That book series thing sounds awesome! Let me know whenever you publish some of it. I enjoy a good story!
    I can't keep my thoughts in one place so most of my stories are either short stores or a mumbo jumbo of random thoughts out of order :'D

    School was a major source of my MDD and anxiety, too. D: I feel ya there!
    I'm glad it's getting better, though! Does mermaiding help you with either of those issues at all? C:

    I'm glad I could break the ice and find some lovely mer friends! You seem like a very nice and polite person C:

    Sometimes I just feel lonely in the sense that nobody cares rather than not having people around me, if that makes any sense! But thank you very much! I'm glad to know people in the mer community do care <3

    Italy? Wow! That sounds amazing! I'm in the United States and, even though it's nice here, I've always wanted to go somewhere like Italy! How is it there? Do people there embrace mermaiding positively or negatively? :O Sometimes, here in the USA, it's looked down upon as childish and weird. I think it's amazing, of course! <3

    I'm glad to hear we have a lot in common! Feel free to send me a facebook friend request, if you'd like! Just make sure to message me telling me that you're Mermaid Kassandra from MerNetwork so I know who you are. I get lots of strange friend requests so I want to make sure I am able to add you!
    Sometimes I'm busy with things and it says I'm online so if I don't answer right away, I am sorry. I respond to everyone as fast as I can with my busy life! <3

    My Spanish teacher in freshman year of high school gave me the name Clara, my human name is Kelly. My pea puffers are in a separate tank from my other fish. And mermaiding did really help me with my anxiety and depression, in senior year I gave a presentation on my mermaiding hobby and that's kinda when I started feeling less shy and anxious. I feel like it released a lot of pressure and worry when I did that presentation in front of 30 classmates. I don't really hide my mermaid side anymore I've learned to embrace it and it helps me make friendships too, especially when you're a crafty person or deal with little kids.

    Thanks so much Rebela and Slim! I don't have a tail for swimming right now, but I work at the Sealife in MOA and me and two other girls are working on getting mermaids there. I am going to be in Clearwater for my internship, and it will be cataloguing the rays and sharks in the nearby ocean. I'll be down for a full month and would love to swim with you guys!

    You're welcome Aegean. I never had the chance to go to the Mall of America but I didn't know there was an aquarium inside the mall. That is really awesome. Rebela and I are about 1 hour from Clearwater and I know that town very well. My old boss travel to that town daily so I can frequently ride there with almost no cost of gas on myself. I do have a hybrid tail and a fin fun tail If we swim at the spring or in the ocean; I got no problem letting you use my fin fun tail to swim with us. Just keep in mind that my tail size is a small on their chart but hopefully you can use it as I use my other tail. Feel free to message me on Facebook or send me a friend request. The link to my facebook is in my profile. Do you know what month you'll be here?

    I must add that the mall in Clearwater has an ice skating rink and it's two stories.

    End of may to about mid June (I can check exact dates but don't have my calendar on me at the moment). And an ice rink in Florida? Guess I can't judge. I work at a marine aquarium in Minnesota. You guys are so sweet! I'm afraid I don't have Facebook because technology usually stops working the moment I look at it funny. I'll send you a friend request on here. Or die trying. If your computer bursts into flames or something, no worries it's just me.

    Thanks for letting me borrow the tail! It'll be my first time in a "real" one. I used to have one I made myself but my sewing skills aren't probably as good as my technology skills. It should fit, but if it doesn't, I have to bring all my dive gear down for my internship anyways (dive fins are the best things to dolphin kick in ever!) and I can just use that

    It's fine. Summer is easier to plan things anyways. Plus the gulf water is like about 84 degree then so it makes fun to swim in. I surprised to see that mall have an ice skating rink but it's really cheap. It's like $9 for 3 hours. You have an aquarium in the mall so I think you got us beaten. Sorry Rebela for kinda hijacking your topic. You'll love the time you are down here and get wait until your swimming with the pod here in Florida. I went ahead and sent you the friend request on here. Feel free to PM whenever you like.

    I nearly kill myself every time I'm on ice anyways, so yes, I'll take my aquarium any day! I do love Florida and hope to live there some day. The aquarium is actually in the basement! I wish I had 84 degree water. Soo lucky. The ice is finally melting up here, but the water is still frigid.

    Florida is great for the mermaiding community. I've been swimming since the start of Feb. while everyone freezes Sorry everyone. You are so lucky with that aquarium. So you like a diver at your job?

    No, I'm in education. I talk to kids (and adults) about sea anemones, sea stars, all the invertebrates in our touchpool, and stingrays and the occasional octopus question. I'd love to be promoted to diver or aquarist though!

    Oh you too seem a very lovely person <3
    Well here it is warm for the longest part of the year but in winter it gets really rainy I must admit!
    Here in Italy mermaiding is still not taken as seriously as it does in USA, pools won't allow you to swim with a mermaid tail very easly and people doesn't understand completely what it means for someone but I hope that in future things will take a different path!
    I'll send you a friend request right now
    I can't wait to start a gret mer-friendship with you!
