So, now I have created a profile. Next is the long, arduous search for someone with whom I can relate. I am (and have always been) surrounded by people who are different from me. I would like to see if it is possible to find someone who is similar to me, most importantly a fellow lesbian. I have gone to gay bars, social networking/dating sites for gay people, and gay organizations in hopes of meeting other lesbians such as myself. I have failed. Now the search enters into the third year. I continue to hold hope in the tool that is the internet. I hope to find that someone with whom I can relate, that potential friend. Either way, I plan to chronicle my adventures and my search in this blog. (This is the only blog I can use to write about these things.) I will also use this blog as a sound board for certain gay/lesbian issues that arise in my life. For the rare reader out there, thank you for reading my blog. I hope that my journey interests you in some way.

As everybody else said, good luck. While I typically believe the cheesy (I mean that playfully) saying that when one door closes another opens is true, I do hear you that sometimes beginning at square one is challenging, to say the least. It's hard to meet lesbians, I think. It's hard enough for straight people to meet good people, and they far outnumber us! So yeah, no kidding, it can be a daunting task. I hope you remain hopeful.¿

I understand about starting over and trying to find a good place to make friendships. I have lived here for a long time and out for about 8 years. Most of my friendships have been related to who Ive been seeing or the nature of the relationship was sort of isolating or filled with so much family gatherings that there wasn't enough room to any more friends. I do have a few friends but the small groups they form tend to lead to drama. Which I try to avoid at all costs! So what is the answer?

Yes, you are not alone. I am out there also on a journey of my own. I think the most important thing is to not rush, take your time because you're worth it, right? Taking you're time and getting to know someone can be a lot of fun if you're both on the same page. I know there's a lady out there for me. Good Luck to you!!

Allivon, I appreciate your words for I feel the same. Being in the South, whether Atlanta or Jackson, it is a challenging time to find the compatible individual to be our compatible soulmate! God loves us when we hate no one! Luck with you in finding your mate! With you, Ramelizull
