Greetings, Emily and welcome to the SF forums!
Take. Your. Time.
Don't do anything you don't feel ready for, or convinced is right for you. These matters are SO important, and you are the ONLY person to say what is right/wrong according to your own needs/desires/values/conscience.
You are welcome here. Take your time finding out what you truly feel about yourself and any potential relationships. Trust God to lead you to what is right for you. Meanwhile, feel free to post questions here, or to jump headlong into some of our discussions.
Nice ta have ya here.

Emily, many welcomes. I find your situation quite thought-provoking, now that I think about it. I used to believe that the beauty of living in a large metro area lay in having access to a big city gay community, actually made up of countless LGBT mini-communities. With a little time and effort, a person could sort out, and fine tune their understanding of their sexuality, no matter what it's subtilities might be. Bearing in mind of course that one must be somewhat discrete about these things.
However, that is from a male experience. Bearing in mind that a lesbian first date may last a few years, at that rate it could easily take a few lifetimes to find Ms. Right. So take your time, keep your ears open, and make as many friends as you can. You will probably need a shouilder to cry on sometime. And of course these days there are many fine LGBT groups and organizations that are not found in the bars. (Unless they are doing missionary work!):lol: :lol: :lol:
I like that Zerbieism, Take. Your. Time.
Peace and Love, BruceChris

Hi Emily! Welcome to Soulforce. I, too, agree with Zerbie. Take your time -- there is no rush to figure everything out right away. It took me years to be able to love and accept myself, and finally to move on to dating. You are definitely not alone in your journey.
Hope you will like it here!
