Pleasure to meet you, friends! First of all, thank you for visiting our site. This brainchild was born during one of my insomnia-induced “thinking sessions”, and I’m beyond thrilled to see it come to life.
Speaking of life, I was born in a small town in Ontario, Canada. I grew up on a hobby farm surrounded by people who were, as you can probably imagine, straighter than arrows. I dated boys throughout high school, and eventually got engaged to a man simply because it was the “next step”. But I wasn’t happy. I felt like there was a hole in my soul, but for years I didn’t know what to fill it with. I tried food, exercise, education – but nothing quite cut it. Unbeknownst to me, all I needed was some lady love!
I am, for lack of a better description, a lesbian by nurture, not nature. I firmly believe that I wasn’t born to be with a woman – I just happened to fall in love with one, and it worked! Today, I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I’m comfortable in my own skin and, I have to say, it feels really, really good.
My soul thrives on creativity, and I’m constantly talking about my latest “big idea”. I have a bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature and have been writing – creatively and otherwise – for ten years. I eat a plant-based diet, teach yoga in my spare time, and am incredibly passionate about natural health. I like hiking, camping and traveling, but only if my wife and fur babies are nearby!
But that’s enough about me…
Hey, Faith here! Em’s telling me I have to write 260 words, so here goes. I like to cook, hike, and play sports. Basically I’m an adorable compilation of an eight-year-old boy and a ninety-year-old woman. When I grow up I want to be a fire fighter, but it took me a while to figure that out. After spending my entire high school career trying to decide which path seemed the most appealing, I enrolled in a broadcasting program at the local college. In my third year I was informed that I’d have to move to the big city to complete a co-op program in order to graduate, so I dropped out instead.
What else can I say? I like to be the strong one in the relationship, but I also like to be the little spoon. I love my family more than anything – fur babies included. I once swallowed a dime and don’t think I ever pooped it out, so I’m worth at least ten cents. As a child I drank a lot of OJ because my grandma told me it would make my boobies big. It didn’t work. Also I haven’t been diagnosed, but I’m pretty sure I have hair ADHD because I change up the style every second Tuesday.
I’m of British descent, which explains why I eat jam on toast the way most people breathe air. I binge watch TV like it’s going out of style, and would rather snuggle than do pretty much anything else in the whole world.
My mom tells me she knew I was gay from the moment I touched the daycare lady’s boob. I was still in diapers. Thirteen years later I came out of the closet – and it wasn’t easy. So I guess that’s why I’m here. To help all of you no matter where you’re at, or how “sure” you are that you like girls. There’s power in number, friends.
