I need more gay friends! In fact, all of my friends arent gay! So I need gay friends. Im in Kentucky and its very rural, and its hard for "straight" people to understand what its like to be gay.

i'm a lesbian in cornwall, uk. i'm poor, unemployable, isolated, stuck. people around here mostly seem just very afraid to dare say anything about their sexualities, i think. not that there's a big wave of hate crime or anything... just that people seem unwilling to open up. in general.<br />
<br />
so you know... i don't know anyone, can't get out socially, have nobody to talk to, etcetera.<br />
<br />
so um... add me too, i guess? i really need gay friends in real life where i live, but at least while i can't have them in real life, i do enjoy talking to people online. recently i am quite emotionally unstable about it all, just so you're aware of that. i finally got some councelling sessions but i really can't see how they could possibly help (still going to take them anyway of course - can't hurt).

Type your comment here...

It's also difficult living as I do in a geographically small nation like Trinidad & Tobago, where so many persons are matchingly "small-minded." I know how you feel Tazchi. Let's talk sometime.

thanks, will drop a line lol. Its still used around here.

Trust me when I say that all of your friends aren't completely straight, cause who is? But I know what you mean. We all need a compatible and sympathetic ear just to talk to, vent, laugh or cry. Try gay friendly community centers or if thats not possible where you live the internet is another option.<br />

As for myself I have really understanding friends, who just happen to be straight. But I would love to have more friends who share the same life experiences of being gay. So there's my comment, feel free to drop a line if ya need an understanding "penpal". If that term is even still used... Lol.

I live in a town thats not really that small, but its not large either, but i am fortunate enough 2 have some really good friends.

Living in a small town sucks. i know how it feels. Like theres no one like you? just relax and be your self... cant ha? sorry if that was kinda depressing. :)
