Any lesbian/bi/gay in Alexandria?

A+ A-

So I just noticed this website, and I thought maybe it's a good way to actually meet new people who can relate to how impossible it is to be gay/lesbian/bi in Egypt!
I'm from Alexandria and I just had the worst breakup with a girl who's also my bff, so the loss I'm feeling is tremendous.

    from my experience , Losing someone you love is a test of life and you have no control over the tests or challenges that life throws at you – what you do have, however, is the power to control your response to these challenges or tests.I have come to realize that there are things that we learn from our pain and that these lessons are part of our healing , I also know that if we choose to open our hearts to embracing these lessons, our life surely goes from a worst to the better life.

      Advice

      Sometimes the end is just the end and that we need to start moving on so that life starts moving on. Explore the reasons why you broke up see if they can be mended undone see if you need to apologise make it up for her be there. And if you've figured out how to win her back give it a shot and be prepared that it might not work. If it does then good for both of you if it doesn't then move on look for other friends other activities other hook ups it takes time it has been more than a year for me and i still miss her everyday

    She's my bff, I'm a daughter to her family. Now I'm just watching her move on with a girl who she used to hate bc she was crushing on me.... while I'm being a "friend".
    I can't imagine my life without her and I don't think she can either.
    I'm living this pain everyday as if we've just broken up.

    • i ve been through kind of the same, it hurts, you will move on but you wont remain the same person you were before, you will learn and grow, but you heart will be smaller , i am here for u.....

    Hey there another bi girl from Alex and let me tell you; I understand your pain. It's quite agonizing even losing a close friend more than a significant other because usually that's what make them even better. So understandable, and I hope you get to cope with it better. All I just could tell you is let it be it's hard but as long as you are open to experience this kind of love again you gotta just let someone else take the place. It's all up to you at the end to make a step forward even though if it seems useless . If you feel like texting me please don't hesitate I'd gladly like to listen

  • Hi, I'm also from Alexandria. Not currently there though. Can't believe how many we are. It's fascinating!
    And dear DentMolly, I feel you and I have no idea what to do with my life either. I keep reading how time is supposed to heal everything so I'm really hoping it does help with my mess as well. I once read this book for a college assignment in my psychology class that was sort of about how the brain reacts to breakups. The neurological background as so on. Long story short, one piece of advice the writer gave at the end was to write down an actual list -no matter how silly that sounds- with all the times your partner hurt you and all the reasons your relationship should have ended long ago, because the human brain reacts to breakups by idealising the person that left you -just like it does after the death of a family member or friend. So by writing down that list, you somehow trick your brain into believing this breakup was all you ever wanted. It's a mechanism to fake relief and I must say at first I thought it was absolutely ridiculous and I couldn't write a proper list but after a few failed attempts I managed to write one down and it has helped me ever since to just add one more reason every now and then. Even though I still miss her and I have no idea how I could ever love anyone even half as much, I came to realise the relationship was doomed to fail anyway. Give yourself some space to grow, because that's probably the one benefit of a breakup. You can redefine yourself and even get to explore more about who you are as person.
    Just hang in there and if you ever need anything, let us know! We stick together after all

      I can’t thank u enough for ur reply, I wish I saw it sooner would’ve saved me a lot of time. Its been almost a year now since I posted this topic, We’re not together, we’re on and off, friends, gfs, then strangers again then we start all over, It’s been really traumatizing and hectic!!
      Idk if it’s me or her, or her gf yes she has a gf now. I really have no idea how to move on. Honestly, I don’t want to. I can’t see myself with anyone else. It’s been a year and I didn’t even try being with someone else although I had so many chances!im just waiting for her to realize what I see and come back! I know it sounds pathetic but I really don’t know what to do.....
