I kept looking for an easy solution, but there wasn't one. There just wasn't an easy way to be a part of the community.
Finally, 13 years ago, I realized that if anyone was going to build the place I dreamed of, it would have to be me. When I started working on Pink Sofa, I consulted with lesbians all over the world to find out what they valued in a community.
When I meet someone new, one of the first questions I ask is “Whats your favorite hobby? The majority of Americans spend 50 hours at work slaving for a paycheck.
” Most shrug and aren’t to sure they even have a hobby. That only leaves about 20 hours a week for a hobby or in most of our cases a list of hobbies.
Since then I've been working to build a place for lesbians to meet, talk, learn about each other, and (with any luck! In their responses, I found 10 words that kept coming up again and again.
Pink Sofa is different from your run of the mill, meat market, soulless dating site that tries to get you to sign up whatever you do.
These often cause a major adrenaline rush which generally puts them in the extreme hobbies category.
