I know this isn't directly parenting related, but I need some advice. I feel like I'm ready to start dating again and I have no idea where to meet other lesbians. I am a single mom and have been out of the dating world for a couple of years. Any advice on where to meet an earthy girl?

hey, moonmama. Where are you? Big city, small town, rural area? It's always a challenge to figure out where to meet good people -- my wife and I met through an online personals service.

Yeah, are you in a big city? My DW and I met on Craigslist. I like that you can "meet" through emails and get to know each other a bit first before meeting in person.

I met my gf at a local Pride festival. I would find out what the local scene is and start attending events... providing that your area has a scene. I could not imagine meeting someone in my area through the internet... pretty much everyone knows everyone else through the college and through the local Pride organization!

I met my partner through a mutual friend. I've met some friends through Craigslist. I emailed with them for a number of months before I met them face to face and I set up an email address for just that reason. It had none of my personal information attached to it. I posted the ad on Craigslist saying I was newly out in my town and was looking for some lesbian friends, etc. It worked really well. Do you know any other glbt people in your town? Ask them if you can join them next time they are getting together with friends. I expanded my social network pretty quickly just by meeting other people my 2 friends knew. Good luck!

Me and DP, No children yet, but we plan on having kids someday. I'm trying to lose weight and get fit. Ask if I've done my push-ups this week.
