    I was looking for a safe place to talk and make friends without any pressure and EC looks like a nice fit for me. I’m looking forward to getting to know some of you and learning all I can, as a lot of this is new for me.

    Just surviving this crazy world. Aren’t we all?

    Hi Jessie, thanks for the welcome! I have nothing but questions as I’m just starting my introspective “who do I like/ what do I like” journey. I wasn’t encouraged to explore my sexuality, and it was always just assumed I was straight. I recently realized I might be bi and am hoping to learn more about bi culture and sexuality in general. Any tips are always appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Olive

    the best tip i can give is this, always do what you are comfortable doing, if it feels forced it will just end up hurting you. so learn to be comfortable and relaxed with who you are and who you are becoming.

    Thank you! I’m avoiding dating until I’m more physically and emotionally safe for that very reason. I want to be the me I’m meant to be before I put myself out there again.
