I'm more of a fedora woman, do you have any tips for potential meetings on allotments?
My first real newbie mistake was going up to London in search of the Lesbian Archive. A building I was certain would be a well-known landmark to Londoners given its obvious importance to the nation. I stopped passing strangers and asked directions. None of them knew but many spent some time regaling me with tales of their slight acquaintance with random lesbians. I never have worked that out.
Fedoras are classy; good choice. I have planned to buy a leather fedora for when I need to dig in the rain. Leather is not so classy, but practical.
Meetings? I am the only woman on my allotment. The other plot holders are fairly elderly gentleman who love their chickens and sheds. I meet many of these types but no women, and certainly none in fedoras or caps. I am a lone wolf, sadly...
Perhaps you could go on google maps and visit one allotment every Sunday wearing a Fedora. Statistically you'd be sure to come across someone interesting. Or perhaps you are looking for a fedora wearer rather than being one yourself?
The plot next to mine will become empty in a few months. Who knows who I might meet when someone claims it. Likely an elderly gent with a love of chickens, but you never know...
If I spot a woman wearing a tweed cap or fedora I shall invite her into shed.
