Hello and welcome mom 39! Hello Chloe! I am single and hating it lol. I was in a relationship for 12 years, ended it finally @4 yrs ago. Recently got the courage to connect with an old flame, I've really carried a torch for her all these years. She's not into me, but we r spending alot of time together... It's hard for me cuz I want more, but for now it's just so nice to c her. Lesbian love is not without it's challenges! :) I will say, when it's right, it's glorious and I would not have it any other way.
this journey begins with my decision to take a step I want to be healthy!

Hello Mom39, My name is Chole and I am probably the oldest (as in time spent on the board and close to oldest in age, lol) one here. I want to welcome you to the team and wish you luck on your journey. As for finding women to date, well, I am probably not the best in that area either. I joined this board when I was single and didn't leave when I started seeing my gf. At the time, over half the members that were active were in relationships. We have a new set of members that are joining and we are becoming more active after a "dry" spell. I think I am the only one that is currently in a relationship now. Things change. LOL As for someone who is supportive of your efforts, that is important for your continued success in losing weight. Support is important in any transition. Finding someone who loves you for you and not what you look like is even more important. When you find that person then the support will be there and there is no reason to be self conscious. Three boys? Wow! I was exhausted just raising one. I raised my nephew from the time he was seven until he grew up. Does you small town have any type of gay/lesbian community? Anyway, come and join us on the Daily Vent thread. That is our general chat thread and you can meet everyone over there. Glad you found us!

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.
