In many other messaging systems either it's open ended, everyone can message everyone, or you can request to chat and the other user has to consent. I think by allowing everyone to message everyone as long as both consent, our community will open up even more. We are very small and we want to make sure we give our users as many ways to connect as possible. So, it would be best to change the messaging system to allow users to send requests to message like many other platforms. And while many people are suggesting group chats, to accomplish that you would have to implement this change first. I think this makes a lot more sense then the current system and could do a lot to bring everyone a little bit closer.
