Have you ever wanted to just talk it out, yet not known who to turn to? befuddlement

What if there were a team of sensible, fair-minded, normal people you could reliably talk it out with? Any time, any place, anonymously? cmongler;

Digital connections abound, and yet real human connections seem few and far between.

At the same time, not everyone can afford, or needs, or even wants a "therapist". Many would welcome an opportunity to casually talk it out with sensible, fair-minded, normal peers.

But such opportunities can feel vanishingly rare. A shame: many would be served at least as well, if not even better, by simply talking it out with reasonable regular peers, as opposed to "therapy".

Our very own Boyah, in its delightfully peculiar form, has thrived on a business model quite like this for well over ten years. And Boyah's budget is hardly anything more than rust, skepticism, and goodwill.

Could there be a broader interest in such a service? befuddlement

Let's talk it out, Boyah. Do we have a $0 business idea? y/n

Hiro

This is exactly what I'm getting at. I suspect it's something we can all strongly relate to. :3

that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, boyah is a private company for private people with private problems
