Talking about yourself via posting your Member Introduction is awesome, but for optimum social success, don't stop there. You're most likely to interest other members when you add your two cents to one of their already ongoing conversations.
Please title member introductions with both your location(can be very general) and one other thing you'd like members to know.
What portrayals have you seen? Did you applaud or cringe? How well are we being represented?
(We previously separated topics by medium (film/TV vs. books, etc.), but after members shared their own art too, we think "in the media" vs. "my own" makes more sense now. So now this section vs. "Member-Created Art," where you're encouraged to share your own stuff. :)
Negotiating anger, jealousy, monogamy vs. non-monogamy vs. polyamory, personal growth, betrayal, boundaries, communication, personal space, dealing with the friends and family of the other, finding social support when you are NOT looking for new "dates" (or whatever), whatever else may be your issue(s). Personal story to share? Advice to ask for or give? Let's have it. :)
Ever been on a date that started reasonably enough with a reasonable-seeming person . . . but then (insert horror movie music here). Could be a first date or something that went horribly awry in an ongoing relationship. Disaster daters can share the quirky, the disturbing, or the certifiably disturbed. Others can share support or survival tips.
Some folks confine their concerns to felony convictions and illegal drug addictions, while others get annoyed if a date ends a sentence with a preposition. Do YOU have any that are relatively specific? Have you ever rejected or been rejected over something a lot of folks find insignificant? Share and compare.
Yes, age IS just a number, but as our number increases hopefully we learn a few things along the way. Here's a forum in which the O&W can commune. Possibly also a place spring chickens can request some sage advice from those who have been around the "lesbian block" a few times? You decide! (How old is "older?" We won't define that for you, you'll have to self-select (grin). )
Recommend your favorite LOCAL haunts to other members, where to go when folks are in your town, etc. Locale-specific ?'s and event announcements go here too. (For general purpose non-expiring longer-term stuff, please see if whatever city already has a thread going and reply to that rather than starting another fresh one. Time-limited event announcements should have their own thread with a subject line worded as specifically as possible (where/when/what, etc.))
Size, shape, food, skin, health issues, work, hair, sex, changes, eating, play, culture, aging, judgment, modification, style, clothing, dis/abilities, in/visibility, in/accessibility ... or what did we leave out? Topics can be dealt with as both inside and outside the "lesbian community."
