I am a lesbian going into Mechanical Engineering. This blog is meant to do two things: a.) relieve the stress on myself from being closeted, and b.) to let people know that there are members of the LGBT community in engineering fields.

The Problems of Lesbian Dating Sites

       So recently I have attempted online dating, however I have found a few flaws.  The first site I tried was called Pink Sofa, which only has a three day free trial, then costs $10/month.  I am a college student, so no I don't want to pay dollars.  Second I tried Pink Cupid, and it went really smoothly, until I tried to message someone, we both had standard accounts, so we can't view the messages.  Yes, you heard me.  The only way to view a message from someone  is if one of the people in the conversation is paying for a membership.  So that's a no.  I don't understand why there are so many free, no cost straight dating sites, but when it comes to LGBT dating they want dollars.  It's extremely frustrating.  It doesn't help that my internet connection is the pace of a tortoise with honey on it's feet.

It's Been Awhile

       So it's only been about six months since I've posted....oops.  I should have posted during winter break, but clearly that never happened.  As for this semester it's been hectic, all classes have major assignments due alternating weeks, so I've been working on homework 6 nights/days a week.  For those of you starting school set aside one day a week to relax and have fun, it definitely helps.  Anyhow I've decided that you could make an engineering BINGO card depending on the school you go to.  Free space would be if you have an assignment from every class due in the same week; another space would be a saying that a professor says a lot (or multiple spaces), etc. Just hand it out at freshman orientation, see how many people complete it.  This BINGO card would vary between each subset of engineering of course, but it could work.
       And now for something completely different.  I was hanging out with one of my friends at the bars last night and as we were walking back he said "so-and-so told me that you were a lesbian."  I had one of those moments where I forget that people do talk about me when I'm not there, and it's interesting to see how this is slowly spreading in my circle of engineering friends.  I can't really blame So-and-So since he was drunk at the time, and I usually come out to people after I've had a few.  I should start to map it to see how long it takes to get to a certain number of people through gossiping.  Anyhow I hope you all had a great holiday season and safe spring!  I'll post later (hopefully not six months later)!
