I’ve decided that I need more lesbian friends in my life. I have had the pleasure of meeting some awesome lady loving ladies online but I have felt that I’ve been missing something in my life. It’s kind of like getting married friends when you’re married. Or finding friends with kids when you’ve had kids.
I’ve been out as being lesbian for about 3 years or so and I’ve been out as bisexual (HA!) for even longer than that. But I’ve never been a part of the LGBT community since I’ve came out. I’ve been blessed to have a bisexual best friend. But for as long as I’ve known her, she’s only been with men. I think she had once told me that she prefers to have sex with men. (Ew.)
I have a gay male friend. We’ve been friends for ages and ages! We grew up next to each other since we were 7 years old. Since Trump was elected, our relationship seems strained. I mentioned on Facebook that I would give Trump a chance – and trust me that horrible man blew through all the chances I could give him in a thousand lifetimes within his first week of his presidency. I wonder if I were in the community more I would know not to say anything like that. I was just tired of my friends and family being attacked for voting for Trump – even if I did want to ring their necks. I still love them all. And since I’ve said that, it’s been weird.
I need some seasoned lesbians to take me under their wings and show me the ropes, I suppose. I just feel that I’m missing that feeling of solidarity. When I go to Pride Fest with my best friend, I just feel so much… well… pride for who we are and who I am. I don’t want that feeling to go away once I get in my car and start driving home.
But here’s the really big issue. I’ll have to overcome my introverted ways. How can I go out and meet new people if I can’t be bothered to leave the house? Perhaps I should call my best friend and have her go out with me. She says she’s sick of men and might start dating women again so I’m sure I can coax her into it.
Wish me luck, y’all!
