Bisexual & Bi-Curious Women and the Women Who Love Them

San Francisco, CA

Bisexual & Bi-Curious Women and the Women Who Love Them

We welcome all bisexual women, bi-curious women and all women who love bi women from anywhere in the nation or world. Please join us once a month for this online support group. As everyone starts to get outside we want to be a safe haven for anyone who is still at home during the pandemic. We require that you sign up with your current face photo so we can verify you are a woman. Please have your video on when entering an online meeting or you will be removed from the zoom meeting. We want to build trust and real friendship throughout time and sharing in mutual reciprocation when it comes to photo and video is a way to get closer to one another. There will be some collaboration with other queer groups throughout the world so we hope that you find this support group connective and expansive for our community. Please spread the word about this new meetup group!  December 2021 Update: Any member who has not been active for over 4 months will be removed. If you are interested in getting together in person once the pandemic is over then you can stay an active member of this group by checking this meetup page every few weeks. Meetup.com will update you as an active member each time you click around on this meetup page (even if you cannot make it to the online meeting). If you are removed please re-submit to re-join the group. You must have a photo (further away with body and face or wearing sunglasses facing the camera are okay if you aren't out ) to retain membership. Thank you everyone!

Book Club Dropouts

Palo Alto, CA

Book Club Dropouts

ABOUT US: <br>This is a multifaceted social club. Preferential recruitment is extended to LGBTQ people of any gender, but STR8's may be permitted with a chaperone.¹ Those who are keenly in tune with the humor and cultural milieu of Gay Twitter receive additional consideration. We read voraciously (ask us for great queer YA recommendations),² we love to learn, we play bar trivia and mostly lose, we hang out at the park and other outdoor locations, we like board games, we like meeting new people. And, we're very nice.

ABOUT YOU: <br>LGBTQ-identifying or straight but nice about it. Probably (but not necessarily) in your 20's in the SF peninsula area. Looking for friends and things to do. Likes good, wholesome fun. Could be convinced to go for a hike maybe.

STRICTLY FORBIDDEN: <br>- harassment of any kind <br>- homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, derogatory language, or any other behavior that compromises our ability to create a safe and welcoming space for all members <br>

--------------------- <br>The Fine Print

¹You can come if you're straight, you don't actually need a chaperone. It was just a joke. Also, we won't grill anyone about their sexual orientation or gender identity, so you don't have to disclose anything you don't want to share. Let us know your pronouns though. <br>²You may be wondering, "If you love to read so much, why are you Book Club Dropouts?" It's because we actually read way too fast for the pacing of a normal book club, plus we like hanging out more regularly than a normal book club does. It's kinda like an Anti-Book Club-Book Club. Something like that. Plus we do other stuff. And we got really tired of trying to pick a cooler name.

Conscious Girlfriend: For Happy, Healthy Lesbian/Queer Love

San Francisco, CA

Conscious Girlfriend: For Happy, Healthy Lesbian/Queer Love

Conscious Girlfriend: We Help Lesbians & Queer Women Date Wisely and Love Well.


Welcome to our Meetup group! Conscious Girlfriend offers free workshops and teleclasses, many free articles and videos on our website (www.consciousgirlfriend.com) plus a variety of other offerings - including in-depth online classes and live weekend retreats - all focused on helping lesbians and queer women find, create and sustain the happy, healthy love we want and deserve.  


Our work is based on neuroscience, psychology, spirituality and other tools of transformation -- and it can help you find the partner of your dreams, and create the relationship you've always wanted.  


I'm Ruth L. Schwartz, Ph.D., and I co-founded Conscious Girlfriend with Michelle Murrain back in 2013. Here's a bit about the professional background that went into that: I have a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and have helped individuals and couples grow and heal since 2003. I also trained in relationship coaching with Gay and Katie Hendricks, authors of Conscious Loving and many other books, and with the Somatica Institute, which offers a pioneering, experiential approach to sexuality and intimacy coaching. 


But most importantly, I walk my talk and live Conscious Girlfriend principles every day in my own intimate relationship! I'm very transparent, not a "guru," but a real live person on my own growth path. I came out in 1982 and am completely committed to learning more about love, and loving in healthier and more intimate ways, each and every day -- and to learning what I teach, teaching what I learn, and supporting our community!  


About You

If you're a single lesbian or queer woman who's seeking a new relationship sometime soon...


If you're not sure you want another relationship, but you do know for sure you don't want any more heartbreak... 


If you know you're not ready now, but want help gaining skills and tools so that someday you can create the kind of deeply fulfilling, healthy love you've always wanted... 


Or if you're in a relationship now, and want tools and skills to make your love as intimate, joyful, harmonious and satisfying as it can be...


We hope you'll join this Meetup group, and take advantage of some of our offerings!


We are very compassionate and inclusive. If you identify as a woman and are interested in loving a woman, you're welcome (whether you're trans, queer, lesbian, gay, genderqueer, just coming out, bisexual, monogamous, poly, or however else you might identify.)  


For more information, check us out at www.ConsciousGirlfriend.com.

In love,

Ruth
