Barb’s Online Lesbian Dating Adventure

Time to check in with you on my online dating adventures! Well, I’ve been a paid member of a particular mainstream (vs. LGBT or lesbian-only) online dating site for almost six months now and I’m getting ready to cut bait with them when the subscription ends later this month. I like this site’s interface but am curious to see what else is out there.

Barb’s Lasting Lesbian Love Quest

Online Dating Tips–Part I As promised, in today’s article (and in future articles) I will be writing about my adventures seeking lasting lesbian love via online dating. I will share my adventures and observations just to have some fun and to offer you some potentially useful ideas and cheerleading for those taking (or wanting to) the plunge!

Love: Cherry on My Sundae

I don’t know about you, but as a career-focused, family-oriented, happily single woman who just turned 55, dating hasn’t been on the top of my list. It’s true. I’ve been living a “too-full life” that I’ve both worked hard to create and gotten used to – and, for the most part, I am satisfied. I’m one of those ever-positive people who has recently been experimenting with the art of growing where I’m planted. I’ve already conquered worlds and pursued my dreams. I’ve flown and I’ve crashed.

Lesbians and Pickleball: A Great Combination for Better Health, Friendship and More

A few years ago, the health effects of 15 years of self employment started to take it’s toll on me.  I’d recently experienced a health crisis, including several ER visits (for a new symptom I’ve never had: tension headaches) a hospitalization, testing and even- heaven forbid- a heart catheterization.  Not fun for a woman in her early 50’s.

It All Begins with Self Love

And I’m getting better at it. How about you? Given that February is the month for lovers, I thought it high time to put the focus in this month’s article on the greatest love of all: loving yourself. Whether you are in a relationship or not, self-love is the foundation of your health, wealth and happiness. In fact, more truthfully: self-love is the foundation of your survival. Just ask Whitney Houston, who sang the song, but struggled to make it happen in her cut-short life.

Happy 2016 to Baltimore Women Loving Women

As I reflect back on 2015 and the last few years, I am of course so amazed and grateful for the gains we’ve made in LGBT rights. But we need to take stock as a community here in Baltimore and consider “What’s next?” “What is most important for us, as women-who-love-women, to coalesce around?”

Raw Sex, Is it On Your Menu?

HIV/AIDS is a disease that has ravaged the gay community. It’s scary that at one time in my life I didn’t know anyone who was HIV infected. Slowly but surely I’m learning that some people who have come into my life are battling with this disease. Safe sex is something we all should practice, not that we all don’t fall short of glory. I, myself have engaged in raw sex, and I must say it feels damn good. To feel that penis slide in you like a hot knife through butter is very tempting and makes you want to throw […]
