In December of last year, a young man wrote this message on an anonymous message forum in Europe that is similar to Yik Yak: “I am desperate to meet new friends. I’m lonely and going through the hardest period of my life. I’ll sit on the stairs in front of the town hall from 2pm to 8pm. I have black pants and a North Face bag on.”
At the time, the man had no idea if it would have any impact but the short message would end up changing his life as well as 10,000 others.
