Dating Advice For Lesbians

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Dating as a lesbian doesn’t have to be a headache. There are several things you should take in to consideration to make a more pleasurable and safe dating experience.

Where To Meet Women

Going to lesbian clubs and bars is a great way to meet other women. If drinking isn’t your thing, join a lesbian sports team, lesbian study group, or take a women’s study class at your local college.

Great Dates

It’s really hard trying to be an active lesbian in a world that isn’t as open and accepting as it should be. This can be difficult when you try to plan a date. You want to pick a location where you can be yourselves and be safe. It’s best to stick to lesbian hangouts, or places that are at least gay friendly. You can search online for restaurants, clubs, and other places that are GLBT friendly. There’s also safety in numbers, and you have a better chance of not being heckled or worse, if you are in an area where the gay community is welcomed.

Who Not To Date

It’s not uncommon in the lesbian community for ex girlfriends to remain friends. While this sounds great, it’s not always. Sometimes a woman chooses to remain friends with an ex because there are still feelings. Avoid dating friends of exes, and it’s a good idea not to date your friends exes either. This can open a bag of worms you don’t want to deal with later, and you can ruin a great relationship this way.

Dating Advice For Transvestites

Dating as a transvestite can be difficult. Many people aren’t open to anything that is different, and you have to watch out for your personal safety. There are options available though that will provide a safe environment to meet others who would be open.

GLBT Clubs

If you decide to go to a GLBT club to find someone, you should be relatively safe. Most bars and clubs that cater to the GLBT community will have either one night a week, or certain monthly events, that cater to transvestites, transsexuals, and other transgendered folks. This is a good way to meet others in the community, even if you don’t find a date.

Online Ads

You can place ads on websites that are devoted to alternative lifestyles, or transvestites in particular. This is a great way to meet people who will be open with your lifestyle choices, and will yield you a safer way to meet people.

Be Careful

The most important tip is to be safe. Many people don’t understand the lifestyle, and make poor, sometimes violent, decisions as well. Never go on a first date in a private location. Stick with public places, like bars, clubs, or restaurants. No matter how well the date goes, it’s best to wait a few dates before going home with someone as well just as a safety precaution. It’s not a bad idea to leave your dates information with a close friend or family member as well. This way someone knows where you are and who you will be with. This isn’t just for the transgendered community, this is good advice for anyone in the dating pool.

Dating Advice For The Gay People

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

As part of the GLBT community it can be difficult to date. It really doesn’t have to be a nightmare though, there are plenty of great, safe, ideas out there. Here are just a few tips for the gay community when it comes to dating.

Meeting People

The GLBT community has grown and become much more open in the last decade. It’s now much easier to find functions and events that cater to the community. Finding clubs and bars that cater to the gay community is easier than ever. Pride festivals are held all over the world, and you can even find events and fairs that are devoted to the GLBT community. These are all great options for meeting others.

Another option for those who live in rural areas with no night scene is to find a dating website devoted to alternative lifestyles. Many of the bigger websites have listing options for gays and lesbians. You can also find sites devoted specifically to gay men or lesbians. This is a good way to meet friends and potential future dates without having to drive out of town to the closest gay club.

Going Out

These same events and clubs are great ideas for dates. Unfortunately safety is still an issue for the gay community in many parts of the world. It’s much safer to go on a date in a place that is open and accepting. You can find many gay and lesbian friendly joints with a simple internet search. For a first date though it’s a good idea to avoid your regular hang out. If all your friends show up on your first date, this isn’t the most romantic notion and can ruin the date before it begins.
