good to see your name Wongy!

I check back in occasionally 😊 Hope you're okay?
I am fantastic & I hope  you are ok. I am just in shock over the fact that whenever I go on there are 4 people total. Wondering, did the GB crew exit to Facebook? just exit? Is there a place for lesbians like First Out? Do women still meet- - -ever? 

We will be in London for 2 weeks , mid June, 'til end, then go to Ireland for a month. There were(are) many women I cared about and have many memories of friendship, good times,  .  .  . where are they? Is their a new web site?

Meanwhile, take care dear Wongy.

I think Facebook, but also the infighting and sameness got people down. Newbies really struggled at meet ups cause everyone there already knew each other. Then when others tried to arrange a meeetup no one turned up so they left too. There are quite a few active Facebook groups though and lots of events now that include meet up type things.

Also meetup.com as that's solely for meeting people with similar interests rather than trolling through a forum 😕

As for the rest of us, I think time just moved on - I've got quite a few people hidden cause everything I said they disagreed with and it got to the point I had little interest in talking on the boards. Equally leaving London meant the boards held very little for me anymore - I don't think anyone has ever replied to my board about Wales......

However if you are over in June then I would love to meet up! I'm sure your friends can be found though? If you PM them they should still get an email to let them know even if they aren't active on the boards anymore? I know I do x

Dear people

I can think of nothing worse than standing in a field freezing to death watching a load of fireworks going off so I will be staying home tonight.    Thanks for the invite.   I haven't been to a fireworks display for three years and that was because I stood in a field on bonfire night and it was quite cold and started raining and it was very muddy.   I prefer to watch fireworks from my window in the warm.

Everyone on GB was a newbie once.  If you have the attitude that you wont go to meet ups because everyone knows each other then you won't get to know the people.   How do you think the people at meet ups all know each other?  By making the effort.

Dear C&M,

It's just what I've seen from the people I know and experiences I've had. Everyone's different but the evidence does speak for itself somewhat....

Dear person online that I have been chatting to on and off for a few days.


I think we should stop.   You obviously want more and I cannot give you what you want or need.   I just thought it was nice to chat and pass the time.   

Oh well.   I hope you find your special person and it is a pity we cannot be friends.

Yeah. Some people are just not worth your time and effort C&M.

Best let those energy drainers go.

I think you misunderstand.   If i was looking for a relationship then i would continue but since i am not then its best to call it a day.

Dear *,
It was good to see you on Thursday. I just wish things were better. You seemed exhausted. I wish you had taken the extra day off work like you wanted. With the weekend it would've worked out at six days in a row. Still, at least you got your birthday off. I don't like to see you that tired.
