Find a Conversation

Hi...I'm new here. Nervous about joining an online community. Want to keep things safe on the net. Thinking ivillage is probably a safe place to try. Hope so!
I frequently feel like I am about to explode because I can't find anyone to talk to. Are these message boards a good place to start up some conversations? If not, do you know of other places?
I am not currently working so I don't have a lot of adult interaction. Most interaction with kids and my husband. Some online emailing and chatting. However, my friends all seem to be super busy and I spend way too much time checking email and trying to chat. I am working on getting out and about with grown ups more often. However, I feel like I need some support that I hope to find online...a bigger pool of people that might be available when I need them. And there is something about making some connections with people with less history and strings attached than with the people nearby.
I'm doing the midlife crisis thing...hating getting older and the changes in my body, regretting things I haven't managed to accomplish as time snuck by, not sure where to go from here. Not diagnosed with depression, but definitely teetering around it. Definitely feeling mostly alone and know I need to build up some community so I am trying the village :)
Thanks for taking the time to read!
