    Fanfiction: Who's Into It?

    I go in streaks of reading fanfic. It's nice to read really well written ones about non canon couples. One of my favorites is Truth and Measure by Telanu. It's about a romantic relationship that develops between Miranda Priestley and Andrea Sachs from The Devil Wears Prada movie. I'm a sucker for a powerful professional woman being chased by a hot younger woman, and this checks the box. Here's the link. https://archiveofourown.org/works/779826 in case anyone wants to read it.

    Gamer Chicks!

    I wish I didn't find gaming boring because it would be fun to play online with you ladies.

    @moonbynight Point taken. Still seems fishy but I'll keep any further comments to myself....

    OP: You've never heard of a Hitachi Wand before? Wondering what was so important that a man would leave two women who are obviously in a hotel room about to have sex? Those were just a few things that didn't ring true to me.

    Sexy, sultry songs?

    This song is on my regular replay. I first heard it while watching the show Gypsy. There's a scene where Naomi Watts is dancing to this song. Here's a fan video featuring this song. Enjoy.

    Desert Rose (by request)

    @pinklotus I was reading another of your stories earlier today and wondering when you would be finished with this one. You did not disappoint. Thank you for taking the time to write it. I loved it! Nasrin managed Cassie alright, or was it the other way around?

    Waves Of Change

    Per Hillary Clinton 1992: “I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession,” she said during Bill Clinton’s first presidential campaign. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/06/us/politics/hillary-clinton-cookies.html ------ Hillary Clinton tried to "tip-toe" for years after this little fiasco. I never bought it. In fact, she embraced it toward the end of the 2016 presidential race by equating her moving women's rights forward by her working outside the home (or rather, not sitting home baking cookies and drinking tea) to Rosa Parks moving the civil Rights movement forward by refusing to sit in the rear of the bus. It's a big stretch for me and quite disingenuous. I'm not sure Joe Biden could have fixed the many years of Hillary's missteps. I remember lots of them, including her husband's. The more Hollywood likes a candidate, the more suspicious I become. ----- I completely understand and agree with your belief that the left needs to be softer with their message to those that lean to the right. No one wants to be told that they are stupid or their decisions were wrong. What's that old saying, you attract bees to honey? There will be those on both sides that are just nasty, racist, sexist, etc., but those people are not our target.

    What American accent do you have?

    I have an odd accent, or so I've been told. I have a typical western American accent with a bit of English thrown in. My English friends don't notice the English nuance but the Americans pick up on it sometimes. I had no idea my accent had a bit of English in it until the Americans began mentioning it. Outside of my trips to London, I couldn't think why or where I'd picked it up. I don't think that could be the whole of it because I haven't spent an inordinate amount of time there. I finally figured it out. I watch alot of British produced TV and movies, and I believe that may be the cause.

    Single Adventures

    Interesting and entertaining thread @elliej. Thanks for posting your online dating experiences. Maybe I'll add some of my irl experiences meeting ladies. I've met people in some really crazy, interesting ways.

    Searching for the "ideal"

    @lsroses I haven't really discussed it much more with him and he's been a little annoying as he now thinks that I am attracted to every woman, including my friends. Honestly, it was something I thought would happen. I had to tell him that I'm attracted to some women but not all. I'm still not sure if he understands as he is a very black and white thinker. He'll get it eventually because I don't act any differently than before I told him. I wonder what telling your husband everything entailed? Maybe he thought it would be a turn on for him. As for my plans, I have taken @blueberry's rulebook to heart and do not plan to go into specifics with whom I go out with and what I'm doing. I know my husband and he'll say he's fine with it but I know he will blow it out of proportion. I have yet to be with a woman (or another man), in part because I made sure I didn't cross a line and cheat. Now that I have his ok, I will take it further. As for now, FWB is what I want so I don't see a full on relationship with one woman. Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss more.

    Strong, Independent Women You Admire

    Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg She fought for women's rights when it wasn't popular and rose to the highest US court fighting for our rights. Her stance on Roe vs. Wade alone won me over. http://time.com/5354490/ruth-bader-ginsburg-roe-v-wade/
  12. @Brin and @-Jo- I'd like to join the lip locking party the next time I visit London.
  13. @Jansen Haha. Yeah, that's usually a dead giveaway... @-Jo-; I have a gay friend who is very straight forward. Within 5 minutes of meeting me, she casually inquired, "Are you gay?" Honestly, I was taken aback but also loved her moxy. I had a little laugh to myself. We've since become good friends and we recently talked about that first meeting. She said that she found it's just easier and less confusing to know where someone falls. She said that when she was younger she wasn't as forward and somewhat shy. She has since changed her approach because she doesn't care what people think anymore. I think her honesty is refreshing and quite mature.

    Can Anyone Relate? (Lesbian to Bi)

    @teachrose00 I can't speak from personal experience but I have met one other lady who identifies as lesbian (butch) who has told me she is attracted to men and would be with a man if presented with the opportunity. Now that I think about it, she may have had an experience(s) with a man when she was a teenager or early 20s. Looking at her though, you would never think in a million years that she was anything but lesbian. I also have a male friend who is in a poly relationship and his wife had never been with a man before him. She now has a boyfriend and still sleeps with women. My friend also has slept with a butch lesbian and I believe he was her first as well. Sooo, no, you are not alone. Just like heteros, I think some lesbians can be fluid... It's not a popular belief among the lesbian community I'm sure, but I've seen it and I'm sure it will happen more because the world is becoming more accepting of sexual fluidity.

    Private social media

    You aren't missing anything. I believe it is very common to have private conversations on various SM platforms. To ensure my private conversations are between me and the other person, I ask the them if others have access to the information I'm sending. I've yet to have anyone tell me that others have read our communications. If they had, I would make certain to keep my communications very high level and PG. I agree with @Brin, the communications are not unlike a conversation I would have in person which would be adjusted based on the audience. No one but me has access to my computers or my phone. If my dh asked, I would tell him no. He has no right to read my personal communications (honestly, he would never ask). I would never dream of asking to read his communications either. We are our own people and just because we are married doesn't mean he can control what I do, to whom I communicate, or what I communicate. I use WhatsApp, iMessage, SMS, SNAP, IG, Twitter, etc. I hope you can get away from him soon. If he is threatening to pound (hit?) you then find help where you can please. What kind of a person would threaten to hit someone he supposedly loves? He sounds like a bully that isn't able to control you anymore and he doesn't know how to act like an adult. Best of luck to you!
