It was frustrating, feeling like I just couldn't find anyone I liked... Support groups and lesbian communities were not well-publicized, and hard to find unless you knew who to talk to.I kept looking for an easy solution, but there wasn't one. There just wasn't an easy way to be a part of the community.
With your site I always felt very safe replying to letters. We are 'totally' compatible in everything we do, say, feel, like and enjoy. However, a million thanks since through you I have found my soul mate and life partner - Nigel.
The took a closer look at three such sites in particular: Social Jane.com, Girl Friend Circles and Girlfriend Social.
According to its website, Girl Friend Circles is “committed to introducing awesome women and inspiring real friendships.” Girlfriend Social explicitly states that it is a website for “ladies only” who are “looking to make platonic women friendships.” The process works similarly to online dating.
Finally, 13 years ago, I realized that if anyone was going to build the place I dreamed of, it would have to be me. When I started working on Pink Sofa, I consulted with lesbians all over the world to find out what they valued in a community.
Since then I've been working to build a place for lesbians to meet, talk, learn about each other, and (with any luck! In their responses, I found 10 words that kept coming up again and again.
