Hi y’all. My name’s Frances.. I’m in my mid twenties and I’m located in a rural town in southern Ontario. Even though I do identify myself as a lesbian, I don’t have many LGBT friends locally.. well I only have one genderqueer friend, that’s it. And obviously, I never dated a gay woman (and never will). From where I live, it’s a hetero dominated town, and there are no LGBT events near by. So it feels like I’m the only closeted lesbian living in a small town lol. Never came out to my family (well it won’t happen anyways) and I only came out to three of my friends. The reason why I signed up on AfterEllen is because I would like to interact with other lesbians online. It’ll be nice if I ever get the chance to meet gay women for once and just basically talk. My dream is to find lesbian friendships, someone who’s actually like me. For many years up to present day, I’m still struggling with isolation, and depression as well. I am sure some of you might relate to this as well, where you live in a rural area and you feel like you’re the only lesbian in your hometown. Honestly, that’s how I feel everyday. Anyways, sorry for the long rant. It’s already hard enough not finding someone to talk to. Life is definitely tough. Hope this website works out. Thanks for reading.
