To want to find my (gay) friend a girlfriend.
TheoriginalLEM · 02/12/2019 21:11
I have a friend, she is 60, gay and lonely. She is a professional woman and the most socially awkward person I've ever met.
She is lovely but very single minded. I would say she has aspergers. So those things make it difficult for her to meet people and I guess being gay does??
Is there a website/dating agency for lesbians that i could recommend that isn't the gay equivalent of tinder?

I don't think being gay makes it difficult to meet people, it doesnt for my friends and family member anyway. Being socially awkward will though as even if you meet someone on a dating app you eventually have to meet them in person.
I would maybe work on building their social confidence first.

This is a homophobic statement.

Some posters are being deliberately obtuse, of course being gay makes it harder to find a partner statistically (and that's before taking into account age, geographical location etc)
OP just wanted suggestions not judgement and scathing, unhelpful comments

I'm gobsmacked that some think finding a gay or lesbian partner is as easy as
To quote my once longtime single lesbian friend living in rural up north. "I'm literally the only gay in the village, or town, or miles around" she's married now though & met her wife through Pink Cupid

Homophobic because it assumes a non-gay person knows as much about gay dating as a gay person would. Also, the word for a female homosexual is lesbian
Some women prefer the word gay to lesbian and I don't think that really matters at all.
Also, I don't find anything homophobic about the original post and whilst some posts on here might be a bit naive, that's not the same as being homophobic.
I'm a gay woman (lesbian if you like ) and haven't read anything homophobic here.
