What sort of places do you go (other than lesbotronic) to meet lesbian /gay/bi/queer/insert-preferred-label-here women, how do you pick a "target," what do you do?
(Please note: This forum is ABOUT the subject OF meeting new women and flirting. It's NOT the place to say, 'Hi, I'm new, flirt with me.' However, you could do that in Member Introductions up at the top.)
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, 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."
Negotiating anger, jealousy, 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? Step right up.
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.
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.
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). )
No matter your personal beliefs or degree of investment in the holiday season(s), it can be a stressful time. Some say even more than average for queers. If you're "out" you may suffer from familial judgments on your "lifestyle," if you're not, you might have to field nosy questions or "straighten up" your house. Share the pathos and support each other here.
