Hi everyone!

It has been a while since I been here. How's everyone? Life is good for me at the moment. I do have a question, I went to the new neighbors who moved in over the weekend. I bought them some chocolate chip cookies. Well, anyways much to my surprise or delight however you look at it, it is a lesbian couple. Very nice couple, perhaps in their 30's with a dog.

So my question....Just to have another lesbian on the street is awesome as most of the neighbors are young families, elderly folks. I really don't know what my question is but may be a stupid question, how do I let this couple know that I am a lesbian. Or do you think they figured it out anyways?


Have a awesome week!

I personally would let them figure it out. That way neither one will feel like you are trying to move in on her partner.

I just moved into an apartment complex (lots of house-like buildings). I have a small window that over looks the street, so I put a small rainbow and and a small American flag in the window - I kind of made sure that the rainbow flag is seen more than the American flag.Wink I also hung a rainbow smiley face sun catcher. Many of the residents here are elderly, but there are a few people around my age. My thought is that if none of the residents are, maybe some of their friends or visitors are lesbians and/or gays, and they will see my rainbows, and come knock on my door. You never know. LOL

Maybe you could display some rainbow items in your windows, or if you live in a house, hang a flag outside your door - I would hang a flag on my door, but it's not seen from the street, and we're not allowed to put holes in the building.

Great idea but if it ever happens will be my first time. Would like to meet someone with the same possibilities. Trying to avoid small town talk until I know for sure. Thanks!!!!
