It just so happens, Mike, my partner, kind of cancelled my plans to go with him, my sister, and his mother, to go to Anna IL and stay at the Davie School Inn this January for his Mom's birthday. His Mom is in her 70s. She hurt her foot when she fell answering the door, and now she can't go. So none of us are going. But I still want to go to Carbondale. My cousin Donna went to school down there. I went to visit from Champaign where I went to school. I remember singing a Pretenders song while swinging on a swing in Carbondale!

Welcome again! All I can tell you about meeting other women is...keep an eye out. There is one I've been trying to get together with (friends only) at my supermarket. As you get out, you may find your gaydar developing.
I could tell you how I met my partner, but it would take a bit of room to do it here.
I, too was married the other way for years and have four children - you are not alone!

Welcome. It is hard just coming out to your family and dealing with this. Start slow with trying to find someone else in your life. You are on a new journey that will be a struggle at times. This can be worth it, but it can be hard. Hugs.

Hi. I am new to the team and being lesbian/bi. I am wanting to take my sexuality were its never really been before. I have very limited experiance with other women and have been single for 5 yrs of my own choice. I was married for 10 yrs and have 3 wonderful sons. I love my childern and am glad that I have them, but was never happily married or fulfilled in the rrelationship. I got divoreced and made more bad choices in men.. I am so tired of being alone and lonely but I am from a small town and really don't know were to even start looking for women my age that are open to dating another women. I have talked to my older childern about the choice I am making and they are both very supportive of my choice. I have also talked to my mother and she was also very suportive. I just don't know were to start. I also know I need someone who will be supportive of my efforts to lose weight and help me not be self consious of my current size. I could really uses some advice from women how have been where I am.
