Title: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Susanna♀ on Apr 10, 2006, 12:36:47 PM
  :D :D :D WELCOME TO GINGERBEER! :D  :D  :D 

                                  (http://smiley.onegreatguy.net/newbie.gif)

Go on - dip a toe in...
...and then dive right in!

We've all been newbies and speaking for myself, I've never met a more welcoming or friendly bunch.

Just head for the Making Friends and Finding Dates section - find something you like and join in.  If you feel nervous about going to a strange place on your own, ask for a handhold!

Check out the FAQ thread in the section for any queries you may have - or ask a new question there!

Also check this link for how to get going

Greetings...on this sunny Spring afternoon...& thankyou muchly for the lovely warm welcome   ;D   I'm wondering how I put a picture (?known as avatar) in here...?

you need to ensure your image is 90 pixels by 90 pixels. (you can resize in Photoshop, or use www.imageshack.us as you can resize as you upload - may lose some quality this way though)

you then need to upload image onto a site that stores images, such as imageshack above.

then go to your profile, and instead of no pic or personal pic, click below on I have my own pic and insert the url provided when uploaded into the box next to http://

save changes and your avatar should appear

Welcome everyone.
Best way to get known and to know people is to post so dive right in.
Meantime, any problems or concerns use the FAQ as the same issue probably does or will exist for someone else or you can IM a Moderator if you would prefer.
Enjoy!

Hi!

I saw you guys today!!!

Whilst waiting in Hyde Park for a friend (who'd lost himself in the Park  ::)) I was amusing myself by watching a large group of people play hoopla. My gaydar was awakened + I made a mental note to go see if there were any such groups in the London area, and now I'm here and realise it was you I saw!

I wish I'd discovered this site yesterday...


But anyway, if there's gonna be another one I'll definitely be there :D:D

Hi. Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Nicky, 34 and from Manchester.

I've been looking for a UK forum for ages where people actually post. Have only really found US ones till now.

Shame I don't live in London as it sounds that you have loads going on there.

Anyway...hi  :)

Hey there,

The names Beans, I'm 22 and I've just moved to central London. I've realised, from the posts on this site that I'm right in the middle of a great setup, all the bars are right on my doorstep! Only problem is I'm newly out and I've no one to experience them with...yet.

So I'm looking forward to posting on the site and hopefully meeting loads of people.

Have a great day!

I feel like I am present at an AA Meeting.

Hello I'm new, I am happy to chat to anyone but do not wish to disclose what I have eaten, or how I am feeling, or what subliminal messages my cat is belting out.

I'm sorry if I sound rude. But already I am finding a few things slightly cliquey and lacking in imagination.

Hi cheekyhels and viola! Welcome to GB!

Have a look in the 'making friends / finding dates' section of the board if you want to meet new people. There's always plenty going on. Sign up for one of the events. Handholds are always arranged for bigger meets. Or post your own meet-up, of course.  :)

Hi girls,
new to the boards, and new to London from aus.  Thanks to the girls who made me feel very welcome last night at oak bar, and for telling me about gingerbeer.  Think a fun summer will be had, look forward to making lots of friends and having some fun.
anyone wanting to get together for drinks or social outings let me know.

Hey...
I'm new here... first time on a forum like this! I'm actually pooping my pants... I'm such a nerd!
There is something I can use advice on... don't know if this is the right spot to write about it...but I guees you guys will tell me if it isn't!
I'm from the Netherlands... and I met this wonderful woman online! She lives in London... I thought we really clicked... but since I emailed her that I'm coming to London this Thursday (the 24th)... I haven't heard much from her... and she hasn't mentioned anything about me coming to London! Does this mean I'm just ditched... or is she just very busy at the moment? Can't believe I'm asking this... ofcourse I know the answer... I have been ditched... right?
Anyways... I'll be in London... been there before, so I don't have to do all the touristie things... but now what am I supposed to do when I'm there? Any advice... anybody???
Thanks in advance!

I've been watching from afar until today.  Somebody had a question about Houston and I could help, so here I am.

There's not much to tell: I taught for 6 years in Texas, USA and am back in school premed and traveling in my spare time.  I am applying for a work visa through my college and six months in London is just the ticket.  It should go through in May.  I can't wait!!

I head straight for the DCG bit.

Which...on reflection ..::) is perhaps a bit rude

...kinda like goin to a house party & not saying hello to the hostess!?! :-\

 :o Outrageous! :o  >:(

So...  *she says, remembering her manners!*   please accept my apologies,

May I just say a big hello to anyone who's out there ;D  *waves* ;D

And thank-you for having me  :D *bows*

Greetings...on this sunny Spring afternoon...& thankyou muchly for the lovely warm welcome   ;D   I'm wondering how I put a picture (?known as avatar) in here...?

you need to ensure your image is 90 pixels by 90 pixels. (you can resize in Photoshop, or use www.imageshack.us as you can resize as you upload - may lose some quality this way though)

you then need to upload image onto a site that stores images, such as imageshack above.

then go to your profile, and instead of no pic or personal pic, click below on I have my own pic and insert the url provided when uploaded into the box next to http://

save changes and your avatar should appear

I'd like to pretend that its because I've been a good lil' Beerie (or maybe a not-so-good one  ;) ) and that I've been duly rewarded for my efforts with gold stars by the Mods. 

However, its much more banal than that.  You have to do lots and lots of posts.  Which kind of just goes to show how much time I've spent on GB when doubtless I should've been doing something else.  Mind you, I'd argue that it's all time well spent!

Hi

I'm quite new too, although I've been lurking around for a while. I'm 'on my way out' and feel like I'm finally heading in the right direction :)

I'm looking forward (but a bit scared about) going to a meet in the not so distant future.

Hi everyone!

I'm also new to the forums, having finally learnt how to use the internet!

I'll hopefully be posting some of my poems in the Creative Writing Lab and would very much appreciate your feedback!

In the mean time, I can't wait to get to know all you luscious London lesbians, lol!

Hi Lavender, I'm new too...on a rainy saturday afternoon of housework, hair-dying and launderettes I thought I'd stick my nose into the GB world and hope too meet some nice folk. I'll look for you poems, I write bad poems too from time to time, may be I'll join you. I suggested a meet up in the 'Make Friends' section - looking for local n. londoners really. Anyone here interested?

I would like to take this opportunity to point out to all Newbies that, while use of these boards is free, there are things which you can acquire which will increase your enjoyment and make it a more rewarding and rounded experience.
I should point out that while these are optional, the first 4 are recommended as they are there solely for your safety and protection.
The others are mainly used by older, more experienced and possibly less mature members. However some of them have been used, to devastating effect, by newcomers.



All the above items can be purchased from the scantily clad maidens in the foyer.

    2. Salt, in both large and extra large pinches
    3. Rose-tinted spectacles, for viewing GB-land
    4. Padded helmet, for when banging head against desk is the only possible response.
    5. Dictionary, Thesaurus, Fowler's Modern English Usage.
    6. Txtng fr bgnrs.
    7.Butch/Femme handbook and rules. (also similar for cake/biscuit discussions).
    8. Large wooden spoon
    9. Grinder, for axe.
    10. High horse, or possibly dudgeon (if one can be correctly identified)
    11.Membership badges for various cliques
    12. Brick wall (for advanced head-banging)
    13. Pitfall detector and props.
    14.Industrial quantities of popcorn to munch while watching dramas unfold.

All the above items can be purchased from the scantily clad maidens in the foyer.

You could always pretend that you're saying 'hello' in a particularly witty way such as while standing on your head and that we simply can't appreciate it cos we can't see you!!

Still, I'm Australian, maybe that's all the protection I need.  ;D

Where would be the safest environment to find out?

Newbie here. :) i seem to be saying that alot these days. im not exactly london but close to; Hatfield precisely. Student there. Theres not much in the way of a scene for LGBT in my area that i know of, so starting here seems a good idea.

However, this forum looks complicated...

Hello all! I was browsing around here when I first came to London 6 months ago, but I've just been reminded of your existence and finally joined up!

I've given up debating the bi/open-minded/gay labelling of my confuzzled little mind, so suffice to say I am quite chronically single :D. Aching to meet some new people, check out some new scenes etc. and alread been welcomed by a coupla net-friendly-folk. Can't believe how much stuff there is advertised on here! It's like a lovely queer buffet of delights...:D

(on a tangent...quite ridiculously I've just discovered the L Festival is going to be on in the town where my family live. As they're the only people I'm *not* out to attendance could be highly hilarious.  Anyone know if there are tickets left? Love live music...)

Another newbie here saying hello to all of you :)

As you can see from my profile I'm not really from the UK at all, but I wanted to join as I've been visiting London several times a year and I wouldn't mind becoming more familiar with it's gay-culture, or whatever you'd like to call it.

So.. To tell you something about me... I'm 19 and discovered the lezzy side of my sexuality about 4-5 years ago. Since then I've had pretty hard time getting used to the idea that I might be a lesbian. And quite frankly I'm still very careful with the labels as I'm still not 100% sure what, or better yet, who I am. And I guess the fact that all my friends are straight doesn't make it any easier to explore 'the other side'.

Well, anyway, I hope you don't mind one foreign here with you, hanging around, trying to discover her true self :)

Hi Girls,

I’ve just joined so I thought I’d say a quick hello.   I’m actually a pre-op transsexual woman from Croydon just about 17 months away from surgery.   I’m looking forward to joining in on the forum and hopefully making lots of friends here.

I’m not here looking for any relationships at the moment.   In fact I’ve only recently had a bad experience with a absolutely wonderful girl I got really close to over Christmas which didn’t work out and I’m still hurting and trying to get over her.   This is the first time I have joined a lesbian forum but I just really prefer female company and have always enjoyed meeting other lesbian women.

I often go to The Bird In Hand in Croydon, in fact I’ll going there tonight with a couple of friends so if any of you ever get in there perhaps I’ll get to meet one or two of you one day.   There are some lovely lesbian girls who come to The Bird and I love to mix and play pool with them sometimes.

That’ll do for the time being.   Hugs to you all.

Marylin
xx

Give it time.

Also, every now & then journalists pop up here asking for feedback, info, options or experiences for articles theyre writing. This isnt always well received as sometimes it does look like they're just too lazy to do proper research.
Not saying that they are, or that you are, but that it can look like that.  :)

You may not get any responses from that thread, but thats not a personal thing. Hang around a bit & make yourself known. Takes a while. ;)


Oh -- and welcome to GB!

Evening all,  I'm another newby, living  in Germany.  One of my friends in London recommended this site, so I've been checking it out and like what I've seen so far.  This is my first post, and I feel relatively unsoiled...but will I feel the same in the morning?   ;)

Oh, oh, just cello or viola da gamba as well?  :D

And whichever it may be, welcome!  *waves*

I used to be shy when I came here.............  ;)

Good point, although i do have an obsessive love of the chello, i wouldn't wish to leave the orchestral Cinderella out by any means :)
I think i've just OD'd on Yo Yo Ma recently...
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Queen on May 13, 2007, 10:54:20 PM
I was in the instruments section of the V&A the other day, & there discovered the barytone - a viola da gamba with some extra pluckable strings (for the three-handed musician, one assumes...):

(http://www.violine.at/barytone_full.jpg)

Cinderella's forgotten sister, as it were.

I love the viola da gamba -- Marain Marais wrote some orgasmic stuff for it.
Is it really possible to OD on Yo Yo Ma?  ;)

Hi guys another noob here. I moved to london by myself when I was 16 and i've been here a few years now and loving it. Sohos my second home really, but i'm more into Trance and Electro so hang around the alternative scene more often.

Trash Palace = Love my fave dive in london. Mind you i'm not a huge fan of the soho clubs like GAY. Not really into commercial.

I'm an actress part time and part time clubber. Want to someday run my own bar. Have a weakness for white chocolate. Favorite bands Placebo, hence the screenname. Public Transport is a jinx for me. Cats are better then dogs.

Thats about all I can think of to randomly stick in my first post. Of coarse along with a big HELLO to you all  ;)

hello, thank you for nice welcome!  :)

have got off to slightly rocky start here - asked for some help with a couple of articles i was writing for some lesbian magazines, didn't explain myself properly, and managed to offend one or two peeps.  :-[

as i want to use ginger beer mainly as a  place to chat/make friends etc I'm worried that i've not given myself the best start. did have lots of very helpful and/or lovely replies, but now a little anxious about launching myself in to a discussion. any advice?!  :-\

Exactly.  I am - very excited, although a little apprehensive about the cost of living, which I know to be far higher than what I'm used to 'up North'.  Still, I have no doubt it'll be worth it!

rent's the killer - apart from that london doesn't have to be expensive. lots of free things to do and cheap markets if you know where to go. anyway, i just about manage it on an abysmal wage.  ::)

what you coming down for - job or studies or summat?

I'm planning on studying for the law conversion course - I'll probably be coming to open days in the autumn which should make for a welcome break.  I've also got family in London I'd like to see more of and of course the scene is legendary!

Hello everyone!

I am somewhat new to London--moved here from Baltimore MD, USA at the start of March of this year.  I remember asking some questions around here before moving, but that was a while ago and that old account is gone.

I am 34 (just a couple of weeks from 35) and in a relationship; my partner and I moved over together.

What else?  We don't go out much (and we don't drink), but wouldn't mind learning about some clubs in case we are inspired to go out!  We are both vegans, and are always trying to learn about places to eat.  And we also both skate with the London Rollergirls (roller derby).

I look forward catching up with all that's going on here on the boards!

Hi there,

I've heard about this forum a couple of times from different mates of mine (Reshma being one of them but I don't know if she's active here anymore...) Saw a link recently at LoveGirls so I thought about (finally) joining!

Anyway, my real name is Blaise (asrai is a nickname I've gone by on other forums etc - means "Small, fragile, female beings who turn to a puddle of water when they are captured or exposed to sunlight." I quite like it!) I'm 19 from London. Just about to start a film and video degree this September. I love music, writing, guitars, going out with friends, photography, making films and all that jazz. I'm partially out, just not to my parents - but I'm 99% convinced they know.

Nice to be here :)

doctoring in manc ey?  Do you get much action in the community (much of a medic undercurrent). I'm doctor/idiot-to-be (of the late-starting elder, still only 30, variety), london-based, and this is a new venture because there aint much elsewhere to turn.. hoping that clinical years might present with some crookedness.. can you shed any light/hope there or is it as straight and arrogantly male as its surface suggests?!

Hi everyone,



I just wanted to say love Gingerbeer, it's a wonderful resource for lesbians such as myself. I've been reading the boards for a long time now so I feel like I already know many of you, but by officially joining up I hope to get to know you all a little better.

Hello there, Gingerbeerians. (Gingerbeerites? Or, for members lacking in mental acuity, I suppose Gingerbeerons? I'll put myself in that category, thanks.)

I'm a lesbian living in London for work until January, then it's back to the US for me. (Well, assuming my company doesn't trick me into staying longer. Tin foil usually works.)

I thought I'd sign up here after lurking for a while and see what's what. Mainly I enjoy the geekier things in life -- reading, video games and various other nerdities. However, I also enjoy exploring London, going places I haven't gone before, and generally just enjoying myself.

So, hi!

Heya people!.
I'm a lapsed newbie. I went to Tall meet, dragged myself in to central London, and couldnt find anybody, so after my second solitary pint I went home and cried.
Ok, that last parts a lie- I went to Soho and got v. drunk  ;D and had a blast.
I'm 23 and a student, specialising in procrastination.
So, yeah, erm, hello.

It's hard work and cuts you off from your social life, I've been reading the boards for a while and you seem like a very friendly bunch - so thought i'd join you for some banter (procrastination)... :P Any other newbies around?

I'm new, and I'm a little bit sad that I will soon (after tomorrow) be work-only, which is deeply unsatisfactory.  In the meantime, is there a thread somewhere for sharing my happy news that I have fallen into a deeply fulfulling, loving relationship with a celebrity whom I have never met?

Hi, I think I should introduce myself really, been reading GB boards since I came out but not really posted anything, I am making a start now!  :D I'll say three things about myself and leave it at that.
I love David Bowie (thats fairly obvious I hope!)
I am a martial arts enthusiast, I train in Kickboxing, Lau Gar kung fu, Wing Chun, Weapons, forms and recently Capoeria, am also learing to be a martial arts instructor. ( It really doesn't leave me with much time off)
At the moment I have a pet Gecko and a fancy goldfish called scrabble.

I am interested in meeting other martial arts enthusiasts if they are out there and any one who might like to give it a try!

Happy days
RR

I live in amongst the the fields of gold in Norfolk, so a far cry from London but I love going as often as I can. It's like a completely different place...perhaps because it is. :-\ I'll stop talking now. Kthnxbye. xx

Hello all,

Just stumbled across this site, suppose that makes me a newbie!

I'm going to take the advice given in this thread and jump straight in. In fact, I'm going to just dive right in at the very deep end and post my first post in The Vault's thread on Inappropriate Film (and tv, I notice) Arousal.

46 year old, lesbian, NYer, with a sincere interest in Europe (hopefully moving there one day.)

I haunt libraries, collect old textbooks/metaphysical books, watch documentaries and science programs for fun.

Hi there!

I've had a look round the boards a couple of times in recent weeks and figured it's about time I said something.

I'm 22, just graduated from university, and moving from Scotland to Switzerland in a few weeks' time with my partner. I'm interested in languages (no jokes please :) ), books, food and outdoorsy stuff.

I've joined the board for some fun banter with other lovely people and, well, that's it really. I look forward posting more than one message :)

Hello :)

Like many before me, I've been browsing these messageboards for a while, but thought I would finally say hello as I will soon be moving to London for a while....  And I guess finally writing a message here is another step of my current "coming out" and "getting out" project!

So, hello everyone!

I'm a newbie too, not just to this site, but as a lesbian too  ;D
Yeah, some people are very dense and can remain complete denial for decades  ;)

I live in France at the moment, but I like to take a trip to London on a regular basis. It's like taking a deep fresh breath from the suffocating narrow minded athmosphere in my hometown.

Hey everyone,
I've been hanging around reading posts for a couple of weeeks and finally decided to take the plunge and sign up.
Not sure if anyone's interested but finally at the age of 37 ( 1 husband and 3 kids later) I came out. Didn't realise that I could be so happy. Fantastic partner and with her 3 kids we are starting to resemble the Von Trapp family- minus the leiderhosen obviously, but hey, never say never  ;)
Live quite a way from London, but would value the chance to be involved in the online community.

How do I move it to the correct one, i.e., making friends section?

Thanks.

Hi Evilpink  :)

I am useless IT wise, but I think if you IM one of the Mods they can move it for you. Or you could just post it again in making friends and then delete the original.
Someone will probably come on here and tell you some thing different and correct, but didn't want you to feel neglected !

Welcome anyway  :D

I echo some of the things said by newbie's here - about wanting to get involved etc. Would it be an idea to arrange a newbie evening at a pub/bar or something? What do you guys think?

Um well I'm not fussed really, but I'd be more than willing to organise something if people are interested in a newbie meet-up - although all members will be welcome I'm sure!

What's going on with the Candy Bar in Soho? My friend told me everyone's boycotting it........what's the story there?

My favourite bar is The Star at Night, anyone else love that place?
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Little_Nene on Sep 05, 2008, 02:10:23 PM
well candys still up and running as normal been there a few times resently but the number of people in there has droped. The old candy staff are now in the edge thur-sat. i think if we could get a large group together candy would be good though cos we could fill it, be like hiring a venu with out the hassel. Plus as well if candy doesn't turn out to be all that could just move onto the edge it ant far or one of the maney other bars and clubs in soho.

Hello to all the newbies and welcome to Gingerbeer.

Pull up a chair, join in and have fun.   There's loads of lovely women here to chat to and, of course, flirt with and if anyone isn't nice then just ignore 'em. :)

If you fancy it come along to some of the meets as well.   You will find various meets being organised in various different sections on the board but the majority is in the 'Making Friends' section.   There's lots of things to choose from and people at the meets are always really friendly.

Hiya Savvy.   Welcome to Gingerbeer.

Not sure which part of SE London you're from but we have fortnightly meets at the Rose and Crown in Greenwich although there's usually some beeries in there most Fridays.   There's also fortnightly quizzes st The Star and Garter in Bromley run by our very own Concept and there is also a really popular meet coming up at The Rye pub in Peckham on 3rd October.   There are threads about all these meets in the 'Making Friends' section so take a look and hopefully see you some time at one of them.

Hi Wolfsong and welcome to the boards!   :D

I used to live near Wood Green, although that is not much help as for the last year, Ive been living in Cardiff.
But there are plenty of other 'beeries in the North London area --- check out the "Making friends..." section for possible North London meets.

Well in that case hello again.   I don't get to BW as often these days but if you spot me at another GB meet please do tap me on the shoulder and say hi.   Being as my eyesight is pretty awful I must warn you I'm absolutely the worlds worst at remembering people and it often takes me 3 or 4 goes to remember people so please don't be too upset if I don't recognise you. :)

And here is another newbie...

I'm Marie, I'm 26, I'm French, and I moved to London three months ago, as a result to an impulsive "tired of being here" decision, which led me to pack a bag, take my laptop, and leave France. I now have my little room in a housesharing, I used to still have a job two weeks ago but as freelancer it's jobless time again, and I'm beginning to feel very lonely in a city where I don't have a lot of friends, and don't even know where to go...
Call me silly, but I found the website on google and thought it would be nice to join!
I'm still very much a work in progress as a person (that's poetic right? LOL) but I would love to meet people and go out for good fun in the city!

Other than that, I love cinema, reading, travelling, dancing, arts, fashion, going to museums, theater in the West End, the BFI because movies are awesome, eating sushis, dancing again because you can never have enough of dancing (and tap dancing by the way), being in the sun (I'm a girl from the south), and all kind of stuff but if I begin talking about that I'll be charged with babbling on 2nd degree ;).

It looks like a really cool place here, I can't promise I will be a very active member because I found big forums to be soooo difficult to catch up with, but I will do my best!!!

Marie.

Hi, a friend of mine is a member here, and has been recommending I join for ages..so I have finally got around to it. I live in Norfolk, which is a bit too far out for most things social, but even a bit chat would be nice, and maybe there are some members from around my area?
Anyway I have spend a happy morning reading some of the posts...better, and more informative than any magazine I have read lately   :)  and free too!!!

Look forward to joining in once I find my feet...probably left them behind the sofa or something as usual       :)

I'm from just out of East London (some like to call it Essex but I can assure you it's the LONDON borough of 'Havering' ;)  I am 26 days off becoming thirty!! I thought I'd join up so I could get addicted to this site as well as Facebook / Gaydargirls etc... I really should be trying to finish my degree, but I'll welcome some friendly chat with some nice ladies! :)

Now.. this forum... where do I start???!!!

My name is Chris, I'm 43 years old, will be 44 on April 9th (there's a date for your diary !!!)  I live in South Belfast at the moment although I was raised just outside Carrickfergus.  I am the eldest of three, I have one brother and one sister.  Currently single and have no children.

I moved to Belfast almost 2 years ago after returning from USA where I lived and worked for 14 years.  I am a Clinical Psychologist by profession and for almost 20 years I counselled children who had been sexually abused.  I eventually felt burned out and now work within the LGBT Sector.  I am hoping to undertake my Doctorate later in 2009.

I returned to Belfast from US quite unexpectedly after my parents and sister were hit by a drunk driver which has left my mother registered disabled.  So in my early 40's I found myself back here and basically starting from scratch again, having said that I would make the same decision again in a heartbeat.  I work freelance, having been out of the country so long I basically get short term contracts, quite hap hazardouly !!!  I am slowly finding my feet being back.

I lived first in Oklahoma then Texas before moving north and settleing in Wyoming.

Living in the southern states I got hooked on the southern fried food lol which wasn't a good idea as the weight went on lol  In 2008 I lost just over 5 stone in weight and I'm still losing.  I cycle 90 miles per week, swim every morning and go to the gym 3 times a week.  Back in the day I played hockey for Ireland, and I mean back in the day lol

I'm quite easy going, enjoy the quieter things in life.  I hate drama in my life, I'm getting too old.  I like the odd night out but much prefer a quiet night in with a goood movie but more importantly good company which has been very much lacking of late.

Anything else you'd like to know feel free to ask.

(As you can see I have a tendency to ramble !!)

Hi all, my name is Samantha (or Sam).  I am 22 years old and live in Hastings.  I am new to GB (I joined today!).  I am really here for social networking, perhaps more, who knows. 

I am a very easy going person, most of the time I like to just go with the flow, and take life as it comes.  I work full time as a Carer and I really like my job (most of the time).  I have a good sense of humour and I love animals. 

I can't think of anything else to say!

Hi all
I'm a newbie/ oldie...I did go to a couple of the vegetarian meals and picnics a few years ago.. I don't think anyone would have remembered me though.

Post by: debspa on Mar 20, 2009, 12:01:36 AM
Yup. they are roughly every month.
In a few weeks time its picnic time in Hyde Park. They are always great fun, and someone will always meet you somewhere first if you like , so you don't have to arrive alone.

trouble is,whenever it is, sometime is going to be your first  ;)

Further to debspa's championing of over 35s and picnic, I would like to extend a warm welcome to any lovely newbies who would like to attend Cake Meet (see making friends section). So far it doesn't have a date or time, or place, but it shall be good, and I shall introduce you to lovely people, and we shall all eat lovely cake.  :D

And also i'm in a way like Thor's gf - only in my case it's not about hair...

I was looking for a thread like this!
Hi all!  :D
My name's Jenny, but I can be called Jenny, Spitfire, Spitty or Jizz.
I don't know about the last one. It was a random nickname someone gave me!
xx

Ok, I JUST HAD TO DO THIS: Welcome JIZZ!! Lol... funny stuff, now where is my welcome?

*And you can call me bitch but only if you're pulling my hair! (If you pull my hair I'll smack you up!)

I love random

Hi everyone

I'm Mel from Colchester (well between Colchester and Ipswich, out in the sticks and haystacks).

Umm, mid 30's, started life as a boi (in the biological sense) but I'm feeling much better now. Just a tiny bit more to go..

Graduated from uni in 2005 and have been working as a paralegal, although I'm training to be a Solicitor from next Sept.

I thought it was about time I put myself out and about. I found out about gingerbeer through a well known magazine found in WH Smiths..

Cheers everyone

Mel

Anyway, I'm Stacey, in my final year at college and hopefully going to Uni next year :). Wouldn't call myself the 'stereotypical' teen; don't drink, don't smoke, don't do drugs, and I have an idea of what I want to do later on in life :).
Am a self-confessed geek, and somewhat of a gamer girl too :).
I overuse smilies, much to the annoyance of some people, and am quite nit-picky when it comes to spelling and punctuation :/.

Thought I'd join again and try to reconnect with the community, I realised the other day that myself and my girlfriend are the only lesbian couple I know, and have no idea how it got that way.

Hi there!

My name is Marie, I'm 27, I work in 3D animation, and once upon a time I was on this forum but lost my login and password (mind you, it must have been deleted now!). I joined a joyous group of people who were going to see the Francis Bacon exhibition in London 1 year and a half ago, if it rings a bell for anyone, that was a pretty nice afternoon!

So yeah, I used to live in London, went back to France after the crisis and the no-job craziness, and now I'm back again, I moved back in October, and even if I've been going out a bit and enjoying a few parties, I don't know a lot of like-minded people in London so I thought it was about time I joined the forum again!

Voila!!

Marie.

Post by: Seana on Feb 18, 2010, 01:30:49 PM
Hiya!

I’m Seana and currently reside in the oh-so-delightful Milton Keynes.  32 years of age, I’m currently gainfully employed at the thrilling, the daring job of software developer in London.  Just what I always dreamed I would be doing.  Still, at least the daily commute helps me catch up on sleep and reading my beloved books.  I’m not actually this curmudgeonly (she claims) but I just have the occasional irresistible urge to take the piss out of myself. :)

Despite having managed to fall in love with a wonderful woman, neither of us have any experience with the lesbian community.  (We met and fell in love through mutual geeky interests.)  As part of trying to fill in this part of my identity I found this forum (and note carefully that I’m doing this online – see what I mean about being geeky?).

Anyway, I tend towards lurking more than posting (being the shy sort), but you never know.

Hugs and best wishes to you all!

But Tarzan has nowhere to store tissues.  And snot can be very lubricating.  Don't worry, I'm sure the monkeys will catch you.  Or something.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Lexx on Feb 27, 2010, 05:11:39 PM
I can assure you they wont, monkeys aren't fans of snot or any bodily fluids really.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Custardy Fututrix on Feb 27, 2010, 05:15:01 PM
But if women were raining from the sky surely you'd catch first and check for bodily fluids later?
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Lexx on Feb 27, 2010, 05:19:46 PM
I am getting the impression you think I am a nice helpful Monkey :-\. I would probably catch you, aslong as you weren't ginger.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Custardy Fututrix on Feb 27, 2010, 05:36:49 PM
That's preposterous.  I like a nice bit of ginger.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Lexx on Feb 27, 2010, 05:40:45 PM
I like ginger biscuits. Maybe you should hang about in trees to save any falling gingers?
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Custardy Fututrix on Feb 27, 2010, 05:51:53 PM
No, no.  I'd have to hang about on the floor.  If I was in the tree I'd have to worry about being at the right height in the tree - too much pffaff.

Surprisingly, I spend a large amount of time on the floor already, and I've never had any auburn beauties fall into my arms  :'(
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Lexx on Feb 27, 2010, 05:54:44 PM
I'll fall out of my tree into your arms if you like? I would dye my hair ginger just for you.

Hello all,

My name's Louisa and I found out about this board from my wife, Seana. I live in Milton Keynes and work in London, where I dissect human brains. (That is to say, I'm a research technician in a brain bank where we collect and process tissue for researchers working on neurodegenerative disorders.)

Hope you're all well, and it's good to be here.

Er...well, hi...

I'm a bi lass living in the East Midlands, and I work in publishing. 28, out and single, with penchants for literature, Sherlock Holmes, and a Nice Mug Of Tea.

Liberal anti-war socialist, but with an interest in military history, and quite often to be found running about in muddy fields beating seven kinds of hell out of assorted redcoats with a hefty musket doing positively educational historical battle re-enactment.

Hoping to meet some queer mates, really.

Cheers. :)

Hi! Another newbie.

I'm in the middle of a ton of end of year school work, so expect to see a bunch of avoiding real work intelligent posts by me on pretty much any subject.

I'm 43 years old, single, way out, new to England and London, mother of three. Two of the girls are with me, the eldest is back in the states with her dad. The other two leave at the end of May so I can concentrate on my studies.

I'd have to say the thing I miss the most is American country music. I miss the dancing. Not that I can dance, I just have delusions of learning.

Would love to have someone to talk to!

Amy

Hi everyone, another newbie here!

I'm 29, and just taking my very first baby steps into finally telling people that I'm bi and perhaps actually doing something about it ;)

I'm currently in Perth, Western Australia, but I'm relocating to London in 2 weeks' time (eeeeeeeek) and planning to stay for a few years. Hoping to make some friends here so I will have some familiar names to put faces to when I get there!

I'm a primary school teacher, geeky, musical, bookish, prone to making appalling puns and getting the helpless giggles.

Hi

Just only found this thread!!  Signed up a month or so ago, but technically am a newbie myself.  Still learning the ropes on GB, obviously!  Am 44 years old, living in South London and absolutely new to everything, after first ever relationship with a woman which ended beginning of February.  Outed self to friends, family and colleagues, without any rejection or judgement - relationship was with a married female work colleague - complicated, contradictions (from her), confused, and inconsolable!!  :'(

  :D :D :D WELCOME TO GINGERBEER! :D  :D  :D 

                                  (http://smiley.onegreatguy.net/newbie.gif)

Go on - dip a toe in...
...and then dive right in!

We've all been newbies and speaking for myself, I've never met a more welcoming or friendly bunch.

Just head for the Making Friends and Finding Dates section - find something you like and join in.  If you feel nervous about going to a strange place on your own, ask for a handhold!

Check out the FAQ thread in the section for any queries you may have - or ask a new question there!

it's my first time here so probably I'm a newbie and I should start in this topic  :)
Or maybe there is another place to introduce herself... I don't know, It's a bit messy..
Actually I'm a 31 year old girl (woman??) from Italy who would like to move to London, so I was looking for some friendly virtual place to start "meeting" people, asking advice and something like that... i hope this is the place for me!

Hi, I'm a newbie - not just to GB but to the whole lesbian thing! Erm, have been in a straight marriage for over 20 years but finally came out to my husband a couple of months ago after starting a relationship with a girl half my age!
It's what I've always wanted but have been too blind to see (other than in my head, where I thought I was just weird for always thinking about women instead of men... how repressed was I?!).
So, now I need to start a new life (erstwhile gf and I are on a 'break', whatever that means) and am hoping that this will be a good place to find some friends and get me out there, as it were.
I'd really like to come to a GB event but would definitely need a hand hold!!!
Oh, also pretty new to this whole message board thing, so forgive me if I do it wrong  :-[

not really completely new, but having a new start after getting my heart broken!

I am a Londoner, and have quite a few gay friends, (but all coupled up with kids) so would like to meet friends for drinks, coffee and introduce me to the club scene maybe. I am not backward at coming forward, so will keep an eye out for meets and stuff, but just trying to be more proactive about getting myself out there ...so Hai! xx :-*

Hi

Thought I should introduce myself. I have visited GB on and off for a few years and though I should register.

So often I find threads which are reassuring, helpful, useful, comforting, funny, sometimes scary, sometimes raising awareness and lots of other things.

I enjoy reading GB so it was more than about time I sign up.

Hopefully, aside from an introduction, I'll contribute to some of the threads, and perhaps make some friends along the way ;)

Hey,

Thought it would be a good idea to stop and say hi.  I've been lurking a little and decided to join up.

I'm 30, live in the North of England with my girlfriend and her children. I'm a bit of an internet geek, so I'm sure I'll be hooked on posting here before too long! ;D

Hey guys!

I'm Lauz, found the site from another but that's pretty quiet so i'm branching out.

I'm from Cardiff but study in Bangor. A lot of people from London here, hopefully when i get the job i want i'll be living there, or New York or any big city really.

Look forward to chatting away!

Nice to see you made the jump :D


Hmmm.....was I supposed to say hi on here too? Shucks :-\ Well here goes nothing - never read the site and have now found my right hand webpage. I love GB more than I love FB!!

There's many personalities on here but most people seem real friendly so I intend to climb through the GB 'ranks' soon enough ;D

Hello, everyone!

After on and off lurking for a couple of years I have finally signed up to GingerBeer. I'm in the market for positive changes in my life, and focusing on different facets of my identity. How better to do that than to converse with new people?

So, to introduce myself-

I am an American living in London. My beautiful partner and I have been here nigh on four years now. At the moment I am interning at a women's peace organization, but am looking towards- gasp, shock! - actual employment some time in the near future. I'm interested in politics, human rights, art, reading and veg cooking.

You can follow me on Twitter at @cremedelafemme

TTFN, off to nose around a bit!

Peace,
C

Greetings folks -

I've known of gingerbeer for eons, but have only recently had cause to join up. As for me, I'm 36, a yank, entirely too earnest to be palatable to the general UK population, partnered with a nerdy professor, queer, a radical fatty, and moving to the UK from touchy-feely Portland, Oregon (http://www.hulu.com/portlandia) USA come September. (Oregon is that mysterious land mass between San Francisco and Seattle.) ;)

In addition to indulging in my favorite hobby of constructing narcissistic run-on sentences, I will be starting my long-overdue undergrad studies at Goldsmiths in Anthropology.

I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you, will be looking for flatmates near September (ideally somewhere in Hackney, Stoke Newington or somewhere strategically located along the Dalston Overground towards New Cross) and am otherwise happy to be here!

Cheshire cat, I'm usually pretty busy on a Thursday but will hopefully attend Usual Suspects when I can. I see First Out has a poetry/ alternative Valentine's Day thing on the 13th. Is it as open as the Thursday night?

I've also seen (been doing some hunting) a discussion group on at Gay's the Word. Has anyone been?

I'm sorry but I don't have any clue about the other events, but we'll find out :)
Last but not least... 4th Feb Friday night in First out

Anyway, looking forward to little chit chats, and putting the world to rights on GB.
thanks for having me

btw, am I the only one who answered the verification question about the king and queen with 'yes' rather than 'Queen'?! I've been having a go at it for over half an hour...putting in 'yes', 'y' and then self doubt crept in and I started to think it was a trick question...

Hi. I'm ka. I'm new. I'm in London.
I've been a lesbian forever, but lost my gold star in my 20s. I'm random. I used to have femme-y pretensions; now I just have long hair and a bad attitude. I like cocktails and long conversations. I like cuddling and handguns. I play an instrument because I need a hobby I'm too bad at to get ambitious about -- that way, peace lies. I'm completely shameless in some social circles and painfully shy in others. I like brutalism, but I'm warming up to Calatrava. I like cats. I'm just about ready for Summer now.

Have been a teacher for 34 years- now  retired but will do Supply if necessary. On here because just want to extend friendship group with fellow lesbians. Really love travel- Gran Canaria in April, Turkey in June followed by Bali for sons wedding.

Hello and welcome Jaffacake ... I'm a fellow teacher - there are quite a lot of us on here !   
Am looking forward to retirement ... only 20 years to go! Come to one of the over 40s meets .. they are organised in the Making Friends bit ..

Thankyou both of you-  B am so glad I decided to retire in mid 50s- I have a life again! Will try and find the over 40s one but am finding it quite difficult - the lesbian site I used to go on was so much easier! Am not one to be beaten though !

Hi Valerie,
A link was posted at L Chat, General Discussion, a lesbian site where I'm a member under the name Arlene Novak.  Its a lesbian site dominated by very young women, who sometimes resent older and bisexual women. I'm older, but I'm not bi. Thank you.

Hi,

I've been wanting to post for a while now but I couldn't figure out what to say!  Hmm, well, I'm Sally Jo, I have a nine year old son and I'm gay.  I've always been a lesbian but I struggled for a long time trying not to be.  A couple of years ago I just stopped fighting it and last year I came out.   ;D

Thanks,

Join in the threads !! (I am living proof that you do not need to be clever or well-informed to post).

Lol One thing I do know is that I'm comfortable for the first time ever in my own skin and mind and I'm never happier then when I'm with my little boy. Or in G-A-Y lol

A friend mentioned this site to me and I thought I'd have a look around :-) so hi everyone xx

Tell us about yourself.

I've been in London six years and am have only now realised how much of a great city it is.  Have only recently "come out" or rather told my close friends - have been happily hiding in singledom and work and straightness for many years.  My parents have questioned my sexuality since a very young age (pre teen) I really shouldn't have denied myself for so long.  I'm 33 and even though I consider myself shy, anyone who knows me says that I'm the opposite and that I don't stop talking. I'm about to have a career change which will give me more time so am looking to meet new friends.  I love to nap, and usually have at least one a day!

I'm new here. I'm 25, I leave in London two years ago. I'm Hungarian, and my English is not perfect, but I like to meet and talk with ppl, and practice my english. I came to London with my ex bfriend, but 1 year ago we broke up. I use to say, that I'm bi but I made my choice and I don't wanna be with men anymore. I enjoy the girls more.  ;D
Uhm... what else... I'm looking for friends, talk here and meet in the real life as well... and I'm single... and shy ::)

Hi everyone, I have finally taken the plunge and joined in!
I have been looking at these boards for a while but didnt feel I could join in, let me explain...
I am straight, married to a man with a family, but have always been very attracted to women, I did look into the possibility that I was 'bi' a long time ago, but was put off as I'd heard that it's frowned upon by lesbians, and I thought (and still do) think it wrong to mess with someone's feelings by experimenting.
However, the feelings I have are so strong that I feel I must at least confront them, I have had a couple of encounters ie kissed 2 friends which was incredible, but when I tried to pursue it I got a big knock back.
I don't or at least think I don't know and lesbian or bi women so don't know how I fill this void?....
I don't go to gay bars and live a 'straight' life so not sure how I'd meet anyone, I'm also attracted more to feminine women.
I don't want to leave my husband and break up my family, but would love to have a special female in my life too, I do feel that selfish but surely there are other women like me out there?
Please give me your opinions good or bad as I'm really confused!
I live in Hertfordshire.

I've feel like I'm living a double life at the mo.  Some of my friends know but none of my family.

they are very friendly and welcoming on here. Look on the making friends section. 

enjoy!!!!  :) :)

Hello Hey Girl and thanks  :)
 I know what you mean about the double life, I have tried talking to a few trusted friends - one who's mother has come out as gay, and the other was the one who I had a drunken snog with! Neither came to anything, I think I thought everyone felt like me!
I have also tried talking to a lesbian friend I have on Facebook to try and get invited to some of the events she talks about but she kindly says it's not for me, I'm too nervous to tell her, well more like I'm intruding I guess.
Well I guess this is the best place to be, thanks again and here's to the next step... X

Welcome to GB, Beetle - from another "dirty bisexual"  ;)

Sure, it's wrong to mess with other people's feelings by experimenting. But, if you're honest about your status with people when you meet them, you'll find it's not impossible to make friends and there's no reason why you may not find meeting someone special could happen too.

Beetle,
 
About 10 years ago I had an encounter with a friend and even asked another friend to sleep with me I was very drunk at the time and my friend was horrified.

I've pushed my feelings down for many years pretending that it is not happening.

Last year I started a job where I met a lovely gay women. Again these feelings come up and I found myself being very attraticed to her.   We were friends for a while and at unfortunately I got angry with her because of how I felt and I didn't know how to deal with it!!!!

She asked what was wrong I lied on a few occasion to her but then I told how I felt.

She then told me she didn't want anything more to do with.  Even now it still hurts I know it was a bit of me having feelings for her and also shouting at her (God knows I wish I can take it back)

But it also led me here on GB

Ooh dirty bisexual?! I like it!
Yes I intend to be honest from the get go, I'd love to meet someone special - I'm not after one night stands or the like, I never have been that way with men either, I always get very attached to female friends and start developing feelings that make me want to go further so I back away, I'm still friends with the girl I kissed and have feelings for her that I keep in check, I long to kiss her and hold her, I cuddled her a few weeks back when we were waiting for a cab and it was cold, it felt so right, so comfortable.

Thank you, I already feel so much better, I wish I'd joined years ago!  :-*

Hay girl - sorry I misspelt your name.

Sorry you have been going through the same stuff, and I'm sorry it didn't work out for you with the girl from work, what a stressful situation and very confusing.

Yes my encounters were drunken too, I guess we lose the inhibitions but also have it to hide behind...

I hope you meet someone soon, it's bound to hurt especially after finally being honest and opening up to her, I hope you manage to get that completed with her one day.

For what it's worth I'm glad you ended up on here too.  :)

Beetle I commend you for putting yourself out there.
Another dirty bisexual here :p

I've experienced enough to know I prefer women, but I'm only comfortable 'indulging' this side of me now that I've moved from Australia.
Hopefully we will find that with likeminded people around us this is not so scary .

Welcome to all the newbies from a slightly 'older' newbie!

Beetle - I know exactly what you mean when you say you get attached to female friends and start developing feelings..
happens to me all the time! So annoying but I guess unavoidable too, its what led me to GB...to make some bi/lesbian friends...not to necessarily develop feelings for but then again I never know with me!

Well done for joining..I can still remember the cold sweat I was having when I was joining...!  ::)

Hi everyone!

I used to be a GBer for a little while years ago, and met a few amazing people that are still some of my best friends here... So, since I'm coming up to the end of my degree, and am hoping to do lots of fun things and meet new people (making up for lost time over the last few years), I figured it's prime time to rejoin.  ;D

I'm also a bit more comfortable with myself than I was back then, so am happy to admit to being a "dirty bisexual" and don't even care that even the bouncers at some gay clubs don't want to let me in for being "too girly." I say to them, in the words of a wise old guru.... eat my shorts.

I will take your advice and put myself out there, I'm aiming to get to the regular Thursday meet, but as I'm in Hertfordshire it's going to take a little organising.

I'm really happy to finally be honest about a big part of who I am, and excited at the possibility of meeting someone special.

Thanks again, and thanks to everyone who makes this site happen.  :-*

Lol Fate!
Yes the cold sweat, I dont know how long I lurked here thinking that I woudnt fit here either, in the end I decided to be honest and see what happened, so glad I did  :)

And that's just what I want to do, meet some new people and if I do develop feelings for someone it's ok.

The fact that you develop feelings for your female friends all the time suggests to me that you're a warm affectionate person, it must be so annoying, it's great that you've found somewhere that you can be yourself, It's great to be chatting to you and everyone.

hmm *scratches her head*

possibly! :P

I care too much, I get attached far tooooo easily and quickly and before I know it...I'm desiring what I clearly cannot have!!

Thank you, I'm sure your warm and affectionate yourself. I like talking to people here, people who understand another side to me to which my other friends can't really relate too. Its lovely talking to you too, hope you have fun here and find what it is your heart desires..

Oh well if you want advice ...

As with all online forums, people may or may not be what they say they are, so don't make assumptions on the basis of online bragging, etc. However the online bragging, hand-wringing, cat-picture posting, innanity and banter is what makes the site fun to read, so sit back and watch or dip a toe in.

If the boards are a bit slow then try diving into the chatroom, as it's also a friendly (moderated) space.

Hey,

I've been lurking around for a while, voyeuristically reading other people's comments on threads and wondering what the proportion of slightly odd people is.

I've decided to bolster the slightly odd contingency and join in. So hello.

I'm 31, generally covered in cat fluff, just moved back to the UK a year ago and looking to meet people for drinks, knitting, chinwagging, live music and gentle cycling in greater London. Oh, and single. Happily so for the time being.

So perhaps in time and with Dutch courage I'll head down to a Thursday thing or a knitting group or something. Until then - online greetings.

Propping up sounds good. Contingencies...bars...whatever :-)

Hello! Wow, I'm quite excited to have found such a lovely looking board full of people.


I'm out and proud, but aside from my girlfriend I don't know any other gay girls, and this should probably change!


Can't wait to get to know you all on here, and hopefully get to come to one of the meets soon!

Much love,
Holly
xx


ps oh gosh I've just realised how vain my username seems! It's the name of my website, and not a declaration of narcissism (I'm usually quite secretive about that!)

Hello all  ;D

I'm rejoining after a long time (scary episode involving an ex, my computer and much deleting of online life).  My old username is now taken, so this is the new, improved Tonks  8)

I haven't really been out and about much for a while, so looking forward to getting to know some new people - albeit slowly, as I am very shy  ;)
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: spearmint on Aug 22, 2011, 08:52:36 AM
Hello Tonks

You are not really a newbie but an old beerie using a new name..... so that the pieces of the puzzle can be pieced together, what was your previous name?  We may have spoken  :D    And if it has been a while since you were on here last,  I was probably some other name because I have changed it a while ago.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!

Post by: Tonks on Aug 22, 2011, 03:33:28 PM
Hello Wongy  :)

Hi Minty, if my old username was available I'd have deleted and chosen a new one.  It has been a good few years since I've been on GB.  It's been a little over a year since I managed to escape from a relationship that was destructive and ultimately violent.  After lurking around the boards for a couple of weeks I'm as sure as I can be that my ex is not posting anymore, but just in case I would prefer to remain incognito for the moment.  This is not intended to confuse/deceive anyone, just to help me feel more confident about interacting with others outside my immediate circle again.  I hope to start to join in some of the meets/events in due course, but for now online banter is what I'm after.  I remember this place as being friendly and inclusive which is why I'm very pleased to feel confident enough to start posting here again   :)
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Feline_dot on Aug 23, 2011, 11:53:11 AM
Hi Tonks,

Welcome  :) I am also around for online banter, maybe a meet or so in good time.

I'm not an old timer, or a reinvention - just joined this year.

Hello everybody.

Just going to have a look round before I plunge in.  Any pointers to where the best bits are?  Where I can get a drink?  Where I can chill out?  Where the loo is?
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Suzywongster on Sep 01, 2011, 01:46:41 PM
Hey diverity :) Depends what topics you'd feel most at home posting about.. DCG is good for random banter, WYF is good for normal chit chat about life, the vault is for sex talk, identity matters is awesome if you have an identity or want to read/chat about identities in general and then the purr love lounge is good if you're on the hunt for love.

Then of course the making friends and finding dates section so that youy can find out where we all hang when we aren't chatting on here :D
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: diverity on Sep 01, 2011, 02:11:23 PM
Sounds good to me. 

Tonight and tomorrow night I'm going to be pulling pints rather than partners, at the Ulverston Beer Festival which is what passes for excitement in these parts.  I do like my beer, I'm an earthy sort of girl myself.

Hello Wongy, I am studying archaeology.  What are you doing?
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Obélix on Oct 16, 2011, 12:06:15 PM
Hello Melinoe and Fat Fairy, welcome to the madhouse. :D

And ooh, archaeology. How fab. I just started a degree in history as a (very) mature student (I'm 44), but my real passion is the ancient stuff.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Suzywongster on Oct 16, 2011, 12:35:21 PM
I'm doing pharmaceutical sciences but currently learning about fossils and the evolution of life... What era is your favourite? I have an archaeological soft spot for the Roman era :)
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Melinoe on Oct 16, 2011, 10:10:11 PM
I've been working with palaeo/neolithic quite a bit, so I guess those would be my periods of choice.  Anything evolution-based tends to get my attention.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Obélix on Oct 19, 2011, 08:03:37 PM
Ooh, the Stone Age. I had a bit of a fling with the Mesolithic a couple of years ago, but for the last several years Ive been fasciated with the British Iron Age and Rome.
Ive just discovered the discipline (?) of experiemental archaeology, & am wondering whether there's a realistic chance of ever making a living from that sort of thing.
I want to go to  this conference (clicky) (http://www.york.ac.uk/archaeology/news-and-events/events/conferences/6th-experimental-archaeology-conference/) next year to dip my toe in.
What are you thinking of doing when your degree is done, Melinoe?
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Melinoe on Oct 19, 2011, 11:42:17 PM
That conference looks pretty good, Penguin.  I have a friend who is planning a dissertation on experimental archaeology.
I have no clue what I will do afterwards, to be honest.  I'm having a chat with a careers person in a week or two to give me some ideas as I know I realistically can't afford a masters.

In my Eastern European family castle in Riga. Vodka, werewolves, (kinda-sorta-maybe) blonde women, the combination of the three. Not a bad place per se, it's just that i miss London. Maybe i will turn up in uk again, sort of difficult to say. The new year will tell. And unsurprisingly am not sober and that's why the blues.  ;D

Hello all  :)

When I was here a few years ago (called Avanti) I used to do a daily gingerbeer quiz that someone had set up and I lost the link a while back - does anyone know where I'd find it because if it's still going then I'd quite like to join in again?

Hello to everyone  :D

I'm a newbie not only to gingerbeer, but also to the lesbian scene. I'm 24 and still have no gay girl friends (except for my wonderful twin sister who is also a big ole gay). I'm dying of loneliness and boredom in the grey, straight world that I live in but I have always been to nervous to take the first step in meeting other gaydies  :(

This seems like a friendly and diverse place so I think I'll dip my toes, I'm feeling a bit shy, though!  :)

I'm guessing that hellos for the newbies isn't a big feature of these boards - not a problem in itself but might be an idea to just tell folks to dive in and not bother with this particular thread. Apart from a few honourable exceptions noone seems to come here?  :-\
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Blythe on Jan 23, 2012, 11:26:27 PM
Hello Newbies!

Some of us DO remember to say Hello, but often we are SO busy chatting, putting the world to rights, arguing over Identity Matters, informing everyone of what we are making for dinner, asking for bra advice or making double intendres that we do forget.
 :-[

I think diving in is always good advice.

Hello, everyone! Welcome to the Mad House. :D

@ Planet, It, AzuraHANTS, teatea: Welcome! Hope you're all enjoying GB.

@ babycakes: Hello! I think it depends on what you want advice on. It's a good idea to take a stroll around the sections and get a feeling of the boards in general. We have an ID section if that's what you need advice with. Or another good idea is to start a thread in the Chilled, Mature and Deep section, a little further down the page. It's a little slower than the rest of the boards but people usually give very good advice there. And welcome to GB!

@ Take the low road: I agree with what Blythe said. Some of us remember to come here and say hello now and then but I myself have been guilty of seeing something shiny and forgetting about this thread. :-[ Welcome to GB and hope you're enjoying the boards.

Most of the posting action is in Discussion, Chat and Gossip, or it is when there's an interesting thread on the go anyway. Or Whatever You Fancy, which is like a 24 hour rolling news channel version of every possible inane detail that you could possibly imagine on all of our lives. It makes twitter seem profound.

Thank you. I need to proof read my posts before posting. I didn't notice the spelling mistakes when typing. Also it is hard to get the level right. Its not like chatting in a chat room or texting. You write something and it goes up on the board and reads differently to how I thought it sounded in my head.

Hmmmmm have to think about my writing style......

hi rosa luxemburg

what made you call yourself that name? Rosa has always been one of my big idols - i have still got her picture on my wall  just asking ....
I  am reading her letters at the moment.

Why I used her as my board name is that RL says  "  Freedom is always and exclusively freedom for the one who thinks differently"   and I assume most people on GB and I certainly include myself think  differently about certain things.  We are outsiders are we not. That is why I seek an online community of people who may share some of my experiences. To make connections and understand  that experience which sets me apart from others in certain behaviours.

But since reading this post...

I think maybe unconsciously its so I can write pompous sounding posts under a good sounding board name !!!!  I have blown my own board cover !!!
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: nic on Feb 14, 2012, 12:12:45 AM
enjoy reading the letters - yes i love that citation too - i use it frequently with my students - do you read the letters in english or german or even polish? i have read lots of her stuff - i knew a person who knew her .... this lovely old lady who fascipath nated me from a very young age on with stories about rosa - unfortunatle she died when i got old enough to ask more deeply but she insired me and somewhat initiated my political path

Post by: Statue on Mar 13, 2012, 07:10:19 PM
Ok, so I never really bothered to introduce myself, I kind of just dove in/crashed in...I probably would have been better inclined to introduce myself if there was just a single thread that everyone added to/introduced themselves on, but creating an entire thread just to say hello, I dunno, for some reason it puts me off a bit *shrugs*...but I thought I might as well do a brief one, as I've noticed this thread...

Hello  ;D

I'm interested in meeting more butch/trans/yang-ey folks primarily - not in the dating sense, purely platonic. 

And anyone into gymnastics/free running/martial arts based type stuff, because I think I would be interested to start training with some people from time to time for a change (I mostly enjoy training alone), but am thinking it could actually be fun to try and find like-minded training partners. I would especially like to meet anyone who knows a lot about flipping e.g backflips, aerials etc.  IM me, where do you train etc, I REALLY, REALLY want to get more into that side of training.  :) That's about it I guess. I'm not going to tell you my age, I'd prefer you guess...
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Blythe on Mar 13, 2012, 07:23:50 PM
Ok well I reckon because you want us to guess, that assuming you are young is what you want us to do,(free running is generally an under 35s thing I'd say) SO, I shall say you are in fact OVER 35.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Statue on Mar 13, 2012, 07:50:51 PM
Nah, I'm not over 35  ;)
I always want people to guess how old I am...offline I get wildly varied guesses and can never tell if people are joking or what...

I recently turned 25.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Statue on Mar 13, 2012, 07:54:33 PM
Hmm...I suppose gymnastics/free running based stuff is generally under 35 which gave it away a bit. But actually, I think you're never too old, as long as you're in good health.

Would like to meet lesbian pals/perhaps a little more.
Looking for a different circle of friends.

Welcome to Gingerbeer PinkPanther

 :D

Just a quick note..

Its never over and out...

When you say over the other person know that you are waiting for a response.. That is good in this situation.. Because you want to a response innit.

When you say out the conversation is finished. You dont expect a reponse..

Over and out is a mixed message
 ;D

I'm completely new, and feeling quite shy!
It's been nerve-wracking feeling confident enough to publicly be out, and on the scene - even online!
Plus, it's been kinda hard to find a forum/site that was UK based.
I'm 23, hoping to make as many great friends as possible! xx

Hi Everyone :)

I am new here and have tentatively dipped a toe in!

I've just come out of a 16 year relationship (with a man) that although was great wasn't quite right, one reason was with me being I guess you could say 'bi'.

I've always been attracted to women, and now am single would like to spend more time with like minded ladies :)

Trouble is, after living the straight life for so long am at a loss as to where to start, I live in Herts/Essex borders ao can't find much going on, I'm also very feminine so only seem to attract men!

Can someone give me a starting point? I'd really appreciate it, am a tad overwhelmed!

I am late 30's but very fit and actve, blonde, blue eyes and run my own business, I also have children who I adore, also adore animals, like eating well and going to the gym, as well as having fun and drinking waaaaay too much!

There you have me!

I came out a year ago after being married for many years and have two sons of 20 and 14 . Gingerbeer is great way to meet people , and there are many in your position, that have been married and hidden there feelings.

Wtf is a good meet on Thursday night in Soho theatre London, Top of the rock who runs it , is an amazing hostess and will introduce you too loads of ladies , there is also the Essex meet at the end of August in Chelmsford

If your feeling really brave come to the rounders on the 18Th august at Hyde park , if you want a hand hold just say so on the thread and someone will look after you

:D, Hi all, thought I would pop in and say hello. After chatting to a friend, about my new found preference, for the fairer sex, and she adviced me to checj out out Ginger Beer, I thought I would pop on, finaly.
julie had been on about it for a while, as she thought I might it prefer to ther other sites I go to, as there are alway's guy's sticking their noses in, after one thing?
About myself, am early Fortyish, transgender, MtF, married, to a woman? with a lovely daughter, and those that are a bit more opened minded, and actualy treat me as I should be treated, all say am VERY girly. I even do a blog, amandamaroulis.blogspot.com, have worked on a film, about a family coming to terms with having a Trans Child, that was Brilliant, teh girl that played the 'Boy', is just startin out in the music world, but is a girl to keep an eye on, her name is Elle Fortune, not a stage name, her real name?, and also have done a magazine article, for a newbi London Mag, called Hedonist, and the copy with my article should be out soon.
So I hope I am am welcomed here, and if peeps think a trans shouldn't be here, the ok, will goes?[/font]

Eh up folks : ) Approaching 40 as a single person after a 12 year relationship has been a bit of a shock (shock over though it's taken a while) so I thought I'd spread my wings a bit. Not short of 'real life' friends, but definitely lacking a prospective girlfriend...I always fall for the straight ones - I never learn! I've tried dating web sites and have been scared off by offers of threesomes and the rest - I'm a bit old fashioned I guess but I'm sticking to my guns! Where are all the sane, feminine women? Are any of you in Yorkshire?
Thanks for reading this rambling hello.

  :D :D :D WELCOME TO GINGERBEER! :D  :D  :D 

                                  (http://smiley.onegreatguy.net/newbie.gif)

Go on - dip a toe in...
...and then dive right in!

We've all been newbies and speaking for myself, I've never met a more welcoming or friendly bunch.

Just head for the Making Friends and Finding Dates section - find something you like and join in.  If you feel nervous about going to a strange place on your own, ask for a handhold!

Check out the FAQ thread in the section for any queries you may have - or ask a new question there!

Also check this link for how to get going

Welcome bigheart, and all other newbies.

This is a great place to meet new friends. The boards can be rather addictive though!  ;D

I just look at messageboards, find a section I want to look at and then open a thread which looks interesting.  Like I said it becomes addictive.

Hi, I´m a new here. I´m visiting London on thursday, and would like to know where there are some cool bars, clubs for women over 35  years and up?
Heard about candy bar, but they are kinda young aren´t they?
Thank you, Miriam.
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Wongy on Dec 18, 2012, 08:01:39 PM
Hey newbies :)

Hey Miriam, for places for the over 35s. Look in the meet up section for the WTF thread. As they meet in a place called the soho theatre bar (on dean street just round the corner from candy bar) and it's full of lovely people of the more mature variety & away from the young 'uns in Candy Bar. Although I recommend popping in just so you can say you've been and made your own mind up. I know plenty of folk who aren't young who like it there.

Enjoy!

Hello,
Just want to say hello, and to say thank you for being here. I'm going through a difficult time (accepting my sexuality) but all the posts on here have been so amazingly helpful, and I can see myself pulling up a chair and making myself comfortable in no time.
I'm 36, in the South East, and not out yet to anyone apart from a couple of friends. SCARY.  Also married to a man, and have children, but that's another story...

Good luck and welcome

Hello gingerladies!  I've been lurking about for a few days and figured I'd get on to registering.  I wasn't sure if I should post my hello's in this thread or start a new topic as both seem to occur. This seemed less intrusive I guess.

Small bits about me: I'm a university student from the west coast USA....oh hell I'm already bored of myself. So I'll be about if that's ok. I'm not one of those post 100 times in 5 days sorta people, which I suspect is acceptable here, but I do tend to stay active when I find a nice place where I can feel at home and toss off the shoes.

Welcome to Gingerbeer chocolate  :)

Sorry to hear you didn't get a response last time, I'm sure it was nothing personal just one of those things.  I can't really comment on wtf as I've only been once, on a night when none of the regulars were there, other than to say I was very glad I went (despite being very anxious beforehand!) and I reckon the regulars would welcome you with open arms.

I hope I will get there again sometime soon, maybe we can be shy together  ;)

Hi chocolate, welcome to GB.

If you are based in London do be sure to try out WTF, it really is a great place to meet new people. Although there are a lot of regulars not everyone goes every week.
So last week there were lots of us there who had not been for months. Plus there are always newbies,  everyone is lovely and welcoming.

Hope to meet you soon,  and you too onmyway  :)

Hello, I am new too from Wales... still finding myself (at 43) feeling a little bit lost but definitely not lonely, I have a 16 year old son and a 1 year old Chocolate Labrador and work full-time but deep down I miss the attraction, the spark, the exciting adventures I could do together with a partner. I have been single for a very long time but I also don't make the effort of going out to places to meet people. However, that might change very soon, I will be going to Pride Festival in Swansea! Who knows, I might fall for someone

Hello HelenS70 and welcome to GB. You could post for people to meet up with at Swansea Pride in the Where to Meet? thread if you feel like it. I'm not sure how many women from Wales are on GB, but there must be some. Have fun!

Hi Mirium,
there is club night on Saturday June 22nd called LUSCIOUS (in Holborn, Central London) which sounds exactly what you're looking for and I run it!
I  also DJ there and play old school soul, funk, disco and pop from 70's onwards. Average age crowd is mid 30s upwards.You can find it on facebook or add me as a friend and i'll add you to the group?

Hello! I've just moved to London from another country.
I think it will be fun. I am also so excited to be here.

Hi all - I'm Sandra returning to gingerbeer after an absence of about 2 years. Not sure what the average age group is here (30s?) - but I am much much older and would, ideally, like to meet up with other women who, like me, were scene dykes back in the 1980s before retiring from it while I still had some dignity left......I work in a charity; live in South London with a cat and 2 lodgers. I'm not a technophobe by any means but I do find it tedious writing endlessly to an avatar - much prefer IRL meetups. I went to some of the over40s meals a few years back - do they still happen? If not should they be resurrected? I may even volunteer to arrange one if there's some interest

Hi people. I haven't had much time to go on message boards for a few years. I have previously been known as Tinsel elsewhere, but I'm starting afresh as Swish. It'd be great to meet new gay friends or to rekindle old friendships from a different position. I'm a technophobe so will suss out how to update my profile soon, I hope  :-*
Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!
Post by: Blythe on Jul 02, 2013, 03:21:22 PM
Hello Sandrapom and Swish,


Welcome back or welcome for the first time,
Sandrapom, there are lots of 40somethings on here and older as well as a fair few 30 somethings.


Why not come down to WTF ? (see in the Where to meet thread)  there are always a regular bunch of GBers who are there.  It's very welcoming.


Title: Re: Welcome Newbies!

Hello mittens--

In the Discussion Chat & Gossip board, there's a thread about Orange is the Only Black.  You could go there and write YOUR VIEW, you know: the mature cough Northerner angle.

I hope you find that GB is as much or more fun as a Women's Prison.

Hi, I'm new to GB (although I think I might've been on it a few years back - memory's not quite what it was).

I'm been out of circulation for a while (which makes me sound like a dodgy magazine) concentrating on raising my now teenage daughters. I identify as gay but, frankly, I haven't really given that much thought for a while.

Anyhoo, as a 47 year old who could do with a kick up the arse and a rummage around for the old mojo, I thought I'd introduce myself.  ;D

Anyway, I'd like to say hello to all members of GB forum, nice to meet you all! A few things about myself - I'm currently a student, 21, foreigner. I'm interested in all sorts of things, i.e. music (my love!), biology, a bit of chemistry as well, psychology, films (I like old ones), I'd find a few more things but I don't wanna bore you with lists.
I registered here to have a chat with people, and who knows, maybe I'll gain a few friends ;)

Hello, here's one! I have actually been a member yonks ago but have no idea what my username used to be, so have now re-registered.

I'm based in Hampshire and don't know any other gay woman round here, all my mates, gay and straight, are back in London where I lived for eight years or so...And hopefully will still be going back one day, as I feel London is my home, not that I was born there of course.

Need to update my profile a bit and add a photo and stuff (Marcie from Peanuts, of course) but on a slow notebook at the minute so will do it when I get on my PC. Anyway, hello all!

I am Daniela.
just wanted to say hello and introduce myself as i am new to this site. You all sound incredibly friendly! Couldn't resist the temptation and here i am. I am originally from Sicily but have lived in London long enough not to mind another grey sky day but i still complain about it a lot!

Has any of you ever been to the lesbian discussion at gay's the word? how is it?
I was at the door couple of times but somehow felt a little shy, i will give it another try next week.

Hey Dany, welcome to Gingerbeer. Just to say that there's a regular meeting of women from here in Soho on a Thursday night called WTF which is friendly. If you look in the Where to Meet section, you'll find it. Hope to see you around on the boards.

Thank you sooo much!

I am an Independent Italian Escort based in Central London who also happen to be bisexual and I have finally decided to go for it big time!

Here my professional introduction, but I am here more for personal than business. I would love to meet like minded people :). It would be amazing to meet other bisexual gay escorts for friendship potentially more. if you are not an escort but wish to link up no worries I m open to that too :)

Thank you for taking the time to visit my virtual home or my world as I like to call it. I hope you will find the following pages informative and engaging.

I am an Independent London Escort who is educated, immaculately groomed and always well dressed for every occasion, I aim to bring passion and excitement to our relationship, although I am a part-time companion only, since I also have a profession. I am a confident young woman, who in public is the epitome of a lady. I will be your perfect companion for any business occasion, dinner-date or private interlude. Passionate about all aspects of my life as well as being a romantic and sincere young woman, behind closed doors I can be your perfect plaything, lover, muse or mistress. We will experience an emotional and always unforgettable adventure. I hope to please you and under the right conditions, to attend to your every need.

I am an Italian high class Courtesan or better, una cortiggiana di alto livello if you prefer (Venetian if you haven’t guessed), available in London and Worldwide, who speaks very well Italian, German, and English. I am well traveled and also very highly educated and only escort part-time, as my day profession is rather demanding. I am an autonomous London courtesan, extremely passionate and open minded about every aspect of my life and wish to share my world with you. :D

Hello gatewaysgel, we may have brushed shoulders at the gates :-), I was there quite a bit at the same time as you, you never know......

I pop along to the WTF meets at the soho theatre bar every once in a while, the next time I happen to be coming down to London maybe you could come along as well, if you don't want to go there on your own. Mind....I don't think I can be there until at the earliest in April.

But you could also go on your own, they are very friendly meets and every one, all ages are welcome, heres a link to the thread, just click on it.

Hello gatewaysgel,

I did go to Gateways a few times, but much later, and was never a member.

I think when you were going, it was in its heyday.

I love ghosts too, so would go spooky stuff, although LBE is a bit too gory for me.

Enjoy GB,

Jules

thanx jules, i do know h.k. and of course the famous vesta tilley. i have many fotos &postcards of her& Other male impersonators of the era. when i did drag before transitioning, one of the characters i invented was called Little Billy London, a 12 yrs old victorian street urchin who just happened to be a girl - it was a song and dance routine, which the last time i performed it literally brought the house down, since it was on the end of Hastings pier - just before someone burned it down.............................i just saw a film called 'gigiola' its french but subtitled, set in 1960's paris, the old butches of the day dressed in evening wear and the whole atmosphere of the club, you would probably love.  Anyway thank you again for my welcome, i know the site is mainly lesbian but as still love the whole butch/femme dynamic, and lived as such before the penny dropped so im happy to be a part of a site that welcomes everyone who identifies with LGBT.

Hi everyone

Another oldie newbie reporting in....well, truth-to-tell I've just re-joined after many years absence (and I recognise some of the board names still going strong)
I'm hoping to come in from the cold and start socialising again.
I recall going to an over40s lunch donkeys years ago which was enjoyable. It's really nice meeting real 3D women after the ghostliness of Cyberspace.
I just noticed there's another over40s lunch coming up which I hope to go to.

Until then, I'll just be trawling

Everyone's circumstances may be different but it all ends up pretty much the same way - it hurts like hell. Sometimes it hurts to draw breath, to open your eyes or function in any way that isn't just your body and mind doing what it has to do.
It's terrible , it's painful and it feels like you'll never get over it - but you will. You will because you have to and you will because you owe it to yourself. It's not easy but you just have to grit your teeth and get better. Come on Calmac, you can do it.

Welcome to GB  :)

This is a great place to start, you'll find lots of interesting, fun folks to chat with and if you're in or around London they do lots of meet ups and things like that so you'll definitely get the chance to meet some of these lovely ladies in person.

Good luck! I look forward to hearing more from you  :)

Hi there

There are Beeries on here from places like Birmingham and Milton Keynes, so you're not alone.

Discussion Chat and Gossip is usually a good place to start and look at the Meet Up section for events to join us at.

Hi everyone!

I'm new here and looking for some new like-minded friends. I'm living in Essex, and make trips through to London occasionally. I joined in particular to find people to go to the London Festival of Colours in September with, as all my current "real life" friends think it sounds far too messy.  :( This made me realise I need to broaden my circle!  ;D

Feel free to call me Vino for short.  :)

Hi everyone! Just dipping my toe into this forum. I've only recently come out as bi to some internet friends and am currently working up the nerve to tell the real life ones + family, so thought it would be nice to find somewhere to chat with other people who have had similar experiences. I'm a 23 year old masters student based in the East Midlands, although I work in London and plan on moving there in the next few months! That's me, I guess! :)

Hi Heulwen,

This is a good place to discuss coming out/semi closet stuff at any age. We've all been there at some stage or age.

Best have a look around the sections that interest you, see what's in the meet ups, or just get your hands dirty in a discussion.

There's a new (free) app for GB too Heulwen--Tapatalk.  I think people are just getting used to it. 

I only just figured out that it works for Android, cutting edge genius that I am.  I still like the wicked primitive mobile format too.

Hello all, I'm new on here, just reaching out and hoping to meet some pals, preferably local (I'm in newcastle) so I can meet and hang out - got far too many straight friends right now, and would like a bit of diversity going on!!
Also, anyone going to newcastle pride tonight/tomorrow? Could really do with someone to go with.

Look forward to meeting some of you!

Hi

We are a charity called LGBT Foundation and we are based in Manchester's Gay Village. We are looking to expand our women's programme to be more inclusive to the online community. So we have started reaching out to you by using this site.

The idea is that we will become more visible and accessible and can ultimately become a point of contact should you need any advice, support or information on health and wellbeing, sexual health, meetups or social support. Have a look at our website just to verify our authenticity www.lgbt.foundation  :D

so this message is just a hello, how are you message! it will always be a self identified LGBTQ woman that you are speaking with on here so please feel confident that you are speaking with someone who understands. We dont claim to know everything and we are willing to learn and receive feedback!

Hope you're all well and hopefully speak with some or all of you soon!

Rachel

Post by: nismat on Jun 24, 2016, 02:26:05 PM
^ I'm somewhat bemused; are you hoping to get people to come to your charity for support, and to expand your reach? I don't get what you're wanting to use these boards for?

This isn't meant in a 'you're not welcome' way, but it sounds like you're wanting to chat with people in the guise of an entity, not an individual (and offer advice? I'm not clear), and I don't see how that works on these boards.
