Im tired of dating

I love to walk into a room where we “own” what’s going on. I love cooking classes, and I’ve gone to quite a few over the years. I’ve got a slew of lesbian friends who have attended these classes after buying a house or car. Eco-travel company Sweet is new to the ranks for lesbians but it’s a great concept to be vacationing with a gaggle of gay girls and also making a difference for the environment, children or animals in a community you are visiting.

But don’t forget other nonprofit events that our LGBT crowd likes to support like theatre, the symphony, the local museum and animal shelters. One of my favorites was at the Whole Foods Headquarters in Austin, TX. The wine all came from a family owned vineyard, Davis Family Vineyards. If you’ve got a special talent or skill, this might be a place for you to offer to teach a class. There’s a great LGBT family focused business called R Family Vacations that caters to LGBT families and single LGBT people with kids.

And if you really want to kick it up a notch, get involved in PRIDE events in a few different communities around you. I can’t believe how many lesbians and gays I meet who don’t participate in PRIDE. If you’re a person of faith and participating in a structured spiritual community feeds your sense of well being then perhaps there is an LGBT friendly church in your community.

I just finished our holiday campaign on how to find a date fast for the holidays. Did I have my head up my butt or what during high school?

For many of us, reunions don’t bring up warm fuzzy feelings.

And apart from hanging with an exclusively LGBT crowd, what else do you want to learn about this year? Now this is just one of at least a dozen events that this group does annually.

For over 20 years Art Erotica has been one of the most unique and scintillating art events in Austin.

Here are a couple of pages to take a look at: Transgender Support has 23K plus likes. For Colored Queers is a new page but it’s got legs and a unique focus and message. Now this is a really interesting way to make connections with everyone that’s come out since you graduated.

My own Facebook page Gay Girl Dating Coach is out there with 3000 likes and lots of stuff going on and lots of single ladies. At my last high school reunion, I met two women who’d come out in just the last couple of years plus discovered that more than half of the women who I played field hockey with are lesbians.We couldn’t wait to get out of high school and never go back.I’m not saying you have to go back, but between high school and college class reunions people make a lot of changes in life direction and often that includes sexual orientation. The age that individuals are coming out is dropping and in part because young people today have access to so much more information via the Internet. What I also see is more and more people in their 40s, 50s and beyond coming out. Animal Shelters, political and activist organizations and events and whatever else lights you up; the local theatre group, the gay or lesbian chorus in your area, the LGBT Community Center, the Anti-Hate Program, anti-bullying projects, Speak Out and so many other variations on this theme.More from Your Tango: Accepting Bisexuality: Attraction Across Gender Lines 7. Enough said right, yawn, boring, yeah but have you looked a little deeper.People connect on Facebook, and then if you’re close enough you can take that connection off-line for face to face connections.They had an amazing Riesling; barely a hint of sweetness, oily, full of lingering mineral flavors and served with an amazing appetizer created by the lead Whole Foods chef. Plus I met a number of single lesbians at this event who also enjoy wine and good food. Then start looking around for where there are cooking classes and special food events. I’ve got a few friends doing this and its been a great way to meet others in the LGBT community. And yes, LGBT travel events are great places to meet other single parents. This is one of my favorite resources for finding community, dates and just something to do where you live.
