Egyptian lesbian struggle

A+ A-

Im an egyptian lesbian 19 yrs old..uptill now i cant come out to any1 cuz we have a sick community that just treat gay ppl as if theyr some kind of virus they have to protect themselves from

i cant even tell my best friend about who i really am and its just frustrating and i also have anth prob is that i still havnt found the right girl for me..i have to go for an online dating ((no rlly convenient 4 me)) but i feel like i have to cuz here in egypt a lot of girls dont understand the concept of fallin for some1 not just fro SEX..its like they dun have any feeling and all they think about is sex!

Why cant i just find some1 to fall inlove with nd love me for who i am nd then sex comes number 2.
I need help and i really need sm1 to talk to cuz i kinda feel like im alone in all of this and its frustrating! .

    its true that the very public people in the gay or lesbian community sometimes make it seem like its all just about sex but if you look harder you will find many others like us who are struggling to find the right person and who are also coming to terms with their identity still. these people are harder to find because theyre usually very quiet or very confused so im glad you came here and opened up about your situation cause it helps

    since youre young its very difficult in the beginning but when youre older and more exposed to different people and communities you will find that it becomes easier to meet people and you also become more confident in yourself.

    • To only a very few people..I don't think its necessary to come out to everyone if you ask me I mean do straight people come out as straight :P ? I just think that if it comes up then it comes up if it doesn't then no need to mention it also it's always wise to know the person well enough before telling them and always avoid telling folks at a work place.

  • Ah! the story of my life! I may be bisexual but I am going through the same struggle. One can't possibly find a real girlfriend in this country. I believe you should stop searching on the internet of two main reasons:
    1- There is a HUGE possibility of it being a guy playing around.
    2- Trolls who just want to make fun of us LGBT members so it sucks in all ways
    Yes, there is a possibility you might find someone good, but these are the odds of it, really. So, I guess you just have to wait until you go out to meet different kinds of people and it MAY happen. Good luck for you
