Hello smile

I'm 30, bi sexual and have a gf of nearly 2 years. I have a 7 year old DD from a previous relationship.

We don't know any other gay couples and we live in quite a conservative area, so you can imagine, our relationship doesn't always go down well unfortunately.

Anyway, be great to hear back from any like minded women in our area............or any area for that matter grin

We have been together for 11 years (we're 31 and 35)..we have also not long moved out of a conservative area (kemilworth).... X

Hi sebs smile

So how are you finding the Midlands then? Did you and your gf have any issues where you lived before?

Be great to hear back from you x

Hi MerlotGuzzler
I am in a slightly different position to you as I have just separated from my partner of 14 years and we have 3 primary aged children. We moved to Nottingham after we had children and so everyone just assumed that I am straight. As my partner was not keen to discuss my past then it felt the path of least resistance to go along with this but I have always felt I have suppressed a whole part of me as I had previously been very open about my sexual orientation.
Where we live is pretty conservative and so I know that in the future it will create several challenges if/when I do find a new female partner smile
Anyway if you want to chat to like minded woman -although a single one - then I would love to.

My partner and I live just outside Lichfield and have an eight month old baby, we've been together just over four years. I have also got two children from a previous relationship. Were both looking to meet other parents out there as we don't know any !

Hi, we are a Lesbian/Bi couple with boys aged 4&2 - we are moving to the Leamington/Coventry area end of June and keen to meet new friends/make a social network there.

Related by pre house-move declutter only: if anyone knows someone who would like a big pile of lesbian conception books (free/for postage) to help start their family then get in touch!

Hi all, I know this post is old but we could really do with some advice. Our two year old daughter has started mentioning her dad ( he was a sperm donor ) we think this is because she hears my older children from a previous relationship saying they are going to see theirs !!!
Any ideas what we should say to her, bearing in mind she's two and of course has a dad out there !!!
