7 Places to Meet Girls Who like Girls ...


If you’ve tried every dating site in the world to no avail, there are places to meet lesbians in real life (meaning no never-ending strings of messages!).

Whether you prefer grabbing drinks at the bar come Friday night or scoping the bookstore shelves, meeting girls who like girls can be easier than you’d think.

Here are 7 great places to meet lesbians to get you started!2

1. LGBT-Friendly Bars

One of the most popular places to meet lesbians is at a bar or club geared toward lady-loving gals.

You can easily Google lesbian bars and parties in your city.

If even thinking about walking into a lesbian bar makes you anxious, you might want to consider trying out an LGBT-friendly (but not lesbian-exclusive) bar.2

For a confidence boost, bring a close friend a.k.a.

wing woman along (it works, I promise!).

I met my partner at a karaoke night at an LGBT-friendly bar.

My straight friend, who was acquainted with her, introduced us and we hit it off –I wasn’t even looking to find someone!

But just remember that your main objective in hitting the bar –especially when you’re just coming out– is to make connections and form networks.2

The more lesbian and bisexual friends you have, the easier it’ll be to find a girl you really click with.

2. Volunteering

In general, volunteering is a great way to meet new, likeminded people, no matter your sexual orientation.

Though lesbian and bisexual women have a vast array of interests and volunteer for all sorts of organizations, I’ve met the most girls who like girls at animal shelters and nonprofits specializing in women’s/LGBT rights.

Volunteering will put you in direct contact with people who support the causes you do, without any (or at least most) of the awkwardness.

Visit volunteermatch.org to search for opportunities near you.

And don’t forget that June marks LGBT Pride month.

Most cities have entire websites dedicated to Pride events –and volunteers are always needed.

For example, check out nycpride.org.
