my two cents spend as you like
Our friend asked in a post if we watch "The L Word" and I responded but started getting a little long winded and thought I would instead take my questions to you in a post on it's own.
Don't love "L Word" for the record because how poorly written it is and how underdeveloped the character's are AND I feel it is a pretty unrealistic depiction of "US"...the pajama clad at 7pm, working, taking the trash out, non-club dancing, tragically un-hip, remote control in hand, good neighbors, that scrub there modest homes and don't have a personal stylist to consult prior to walking out the door to hit the grocery store and recyle center. Maybe that is just my wife and I. Does anyone out there feel they are being portrayed via "L Word"? And if so what character do you identify with?
Who out there has a "Lesbian" film that they love that doesn't end in tragedy?
How about literature?
Being that we are mature lesbians (well, over thirty at any rate) tell me the first movie you saw about lesbians.
Me..."Personal Best"......I knew prior to seeing the movie that I liked girls in a special way but it did make me feel somewhat more validated. I have never been able to look at Muriel Hemingway since, without a little "Hey Muriel wanna go run the track and then hit the showers?"

Do mature lesbians watch the L Word? I do. I love Shane and Moira the best.

It' s Sunday
Sunday Blues. Tomorrow's Monday. Not enough leisure time in this society and I have more than most. I work 32 hours a week at the book store. It keeps me alive, in more ways than one. It pays the bills, brings me books and human interaction, when I might otherwise veg out online all the time.
I am thinking sadly of my young (24) lover who dumped me a few weeks back. I miss her, but I think I'd better not call her or write to her now. I have been doing a pretty good job of not dwelling on this all the time and any interaction I have with her will make me think about her more.
Daphne, my spouse, is going to Jamaica Plain now. I think I should get up and go with her, but I feel too cranky to ride the bus and walk and shop and ride the bus back. It's too bad because they have great thrift stores out there. If I had a magic carpet and could be whisked right to the thrift store and then home again, I would go.
I will probably nap instead. Yummy napping in the sun, on the daybed with my cat.
Maybe I should start a new group maturedepressedlesbians. Or even just depressedlesbians. They ought to have that one already. Current Mood: a little low
Hi there. ^_^ I'm a 30 year old lesbian... I have been with my wife for 6 years now and we have a 9 year old son from a previous relationship that we are raising together. I joined this community in hopes of communicating with some more mature lesbians, not the usual teen and 20s set who pervade many of the other lesbian LJ communities. I'd love to meet some new, like minded friends!! Anyway, hi! ^_^ Current Mood: busy

Rainy Saturday Night
I went out to Mexican food with my spouse. We window shopped in the rain a bit. I got some ginger preserves. It was nice. My feet got wet and hers hurt from her new (from the thrift store) docs. So we were glad to get home to what we call our rain-proof apartment. And our cats.
I told her Fedora broke my heart into two pieces, but they're both yours. She thought that was great. Current Mood: okay
Apparently I am way older even than most of the women in this group. I am 54.
I read job ads sometimes. What they tell me is that to get a different job -- or perhaps to keep this one -- I need to update my technical skills.
I sit in meetings many times. What they tell me is that I have very little understanding of the technology we are all paid to implement and document. I am not interested in learning it.
What I am interested in learning, what I am interested in understanding, has no commercial potential. It has no survival value. If I were lost in the woods or in some postapocalyptic urban environment, I would die quickly for lack of survival skills.
I am not willing to squander my dwindling days on technology.
I am lost in the world with no survival skills nor any desire to acquire them. Instead, my appetite for luminosity is boundless.

Mature lesbian, me?
Topic for discussion: In what ways are we mature or not?
Well, I feel like chewing on my hair, but it is too short to reach my mouth by a lot. I seem to remember that was comforting. I don't feel mature today. I feel whiny and pouty. I was supposed to help a friend move and I ditched her because I was so tired after work. I came home and took a nap.
I love naps. I do remember being young and not understanding why my mother wanted to take naps. Hah. Now I am a professional napper myself. I like to nap after work and then get on LJ from like 10pm-1am.
Also I won't cook. I'd say I can't cook, but I don't think it's rocket science. Part of my tomboyhood was to refuse to master any domestic chores. So I hardly feed myself well. That's not so mature. I eat breakfast cereal for dinner or eat out way too much or eat sandwiches.
And my relationship with cleaning the house is like a truce. I won't hurt the dust bunnies if they don't hurt me. If the laundry pile got up and walked one day I wouldn't be too surprised.
So what is mature about me besides my age? I have kept the same job for nearly 20 years. (Used book buyer.) I was in therapy for 15 years. I'm pretty good at talking about my feelings as a result. While dating my 24-year-old now ex gf, I noticed that I had picked up a lot of information over the years that she hadn't yet learned. I wouldn't exactly call most of it wisdom, although occassionally a spark of wisdom does appear, but an accumulation of extraneous cultural knowledge.
I tend to be a homebody now too. Part of me wants to go out dancing every night, but in reality I only do that sort of thing a few times a year. Is that mature or just boring? Sometimes I can't tell.
Do other soi-disant mature lesbians watch the L Word. I am addicted to it, even though at first I thought its representation of rich, skinny, femme-y, LA lesbian/actress/models left a lot to be desired. Current Mood: contemplative

Now to encourage discussion
So who's in a relationship? I know several of us are getting over break ups. I am actually doing both. I want to meet new people and start getting out more. Make friends for a change. I have been too isolated with my wife. We hardly ever go out. Then my other gf dumped me and now I am sad and feeling the lack of people to talk to and do things with in my life, besides my wife. Current Mood: crappy
Oh I'm a bad girl
Have I mentioned that I just started doing all this without talking to the moderator? I emailed her, but I haven't heard back yet. I got a little carried away by my own enthusiasm. I hope she won't be too mad at me for running wild all over lj with her community. Mea culpa. Current Mood: guilty

I loe older women...aka mature women...as I am one myself.
My last girlfriend was 50.

Recently dumped by my other gal.
Depressed and trying to regroup.
If someone made a Mature Lesbians banner, we could all go post the group to our journals and other groups we belong to and see if we could drum up some buzz about the group.

Not a lot of life here. I will however bite. I would love to find a nice group of lesbians that are my age to chat with.
Hot topics for discussion:
The resurgence of the mullet (my wife would be proud, she really wants to bring it back)
Just kidding, I like to stir the pot.

What's the deal? Why dont THESE types of forums flourish? Im a mature lesbian (most of the time) and I get really tired of having to share space with teens and twentysomethings. Nothing against them personally but, shitonastick, I get tired of hearing about how "in love" they are after talking on the phone 3 or 4 times or how last week they were in a relationship for the rest of their lives and today they cant even remember her name or (my all time LEAST favourite topic...) "I dont know what I am. Help!"
Somebody, please, point me to the "Over 30, LESBIANS ONLY, no bi-sexuals allowed, activist minded, thought provoking, fun loving, butch/femme, Ill show you mine if you show me yours" forum!

Coming out to Jen
I'm not someone you'd look at and say, "she's gay ... she's a lesbian."
And although I'm out to my family, I am NOT out to anyone at work ... until yesterday that is. I came out to my friend Jen. And I knew she'd be ok with it. She's a renaissance woman! I swear that she's just 'out there', and has her little hands into just about everything (with the exception of women .. haha).
But I just knew I could tell her ...
It wasn't really that compelling, but when she asked who I had a date with tonight, i told her a woman friend ... and she said, "oh ok ... like a girlfriend girlfriend... or a GIRLFRIEND girlfriend ..."
I had to laugh, because she said the same thing twice, but I knew what she meant .. and I told her, "No, it's just a woman friend, but um... yeah ... I hope to... you know .... have one some time again soon."
And that was that ... and she totally gets it that just because I prefer women, it's not like I stare at every woman or think of every woman as a possible date... I'm not 'after' every woman I meet. I mean, yeah, I have preferences of the kind of woman I want to date and I have an idea of the kind of woman I want in my day to day life ... and who I might even commit to ceremoniously ...
Quite frankly, Jen is a very sexy woman and exudes sensuality. I admire that, but it's a little like window shopping ... you look, you admire, and then you move on. I'm not blind, but I don't need to jump off ship to know the ocean is deep. She's a straight woman, and I didn't think anything more about it.
A friend of mine has backed off tremendously, since I told her that I've had relationships with women. We use to do a lot together, but since that little slip, have not. It could be that she wonders if I'm 'into her' .... or maybe she doesn't want to be known at work as having a lesbian friend. Whatever it is, I'll be here ... doing my thing.
Anyway, gotta run off and get ready for work now! Lots to do at the shop.
