I can answer questions about lesbian relationships, dating, coming out, what to do if you like someone who isn't a lesbian, and how to know if you or someone else is a lesbian. I am also willing to be a friendly ear to anyone who just needs someone to talk to-sometimes that is all we need.

Experience in the area

I am a lesbian and have lived openly for over 15 years. I had to figure lesbian life out on my own because it wasn't socially acceptable when I came out. I belonged to gay clubs in college and have pretty much seen it all in the gay community. i am currently in a very happy lesbian relationship but I had to date a lot of toads before I found my princess. I've always been the advice giver for my friends. I just like to see people happy and talking to someone on the outside of the situation usually helps.


I volunteer for the local YMCA and served as a Big Sister until the local chapter ran out of money and closed.


I have an Associate's Degree in Humanities and a Bachelor's Degree in Speech Communications.

Hi Susan.    It sounds like this girl is done with your relationship. Seeing someone else and now wanting space and to just be friends are not good signs. Had she truly been invested in your relationship

2015-08-04 Sex problem:

Hi Helle,    Not every couple is 100% compatible when it comes to sex. Everyone likes something different. I would suggest doing things you both enjoy the majority of the time. However, if your gf loves

2015-02-25 I don't know how to do this:

Hi Hayley,    A good place to start would be your college's lgbt group. I know you're pretty busy but it really is a great place to meet people, talk to other people going through the same things as you

2015-02-03 Not Sure If I am A Lesbian or Not:

Hi Holly,    Your situation sounds a lot like what I went through when I was your age. I felt the same about guys and girls as you do now. I ended up finding that I am a lesbian, but that doesn't mean
