Hey, I am a 20 years old lebanese lesbian living in canada. I've tried to date many canadian girls but it never works out, i've always wanted to find a good christian lebanese girl. I only say christian because it will make our relation ship easier cause we would share the same religious traditions and believes.
If anyones interested in gettings to know me, even just as friends, don't hesitate to email me on ca713510@hotmail.com
I look forward to hearing from you :)

If anyone knows of a better way to meet a leb girl, let me know. Thanks

Hey, I'm a 15 year old Canadian girl who sadly lives in Lebanon. I'm bisexual and my mother is a homophobe. She doesn't know about me. I'm a lipstick lesbian and I'm pretty good looking :) I wanted to say that its fucked up to be living here in Lebanon because of this law against LGBT thingy, and I don't understand why its would be that hard to change all that?

On the other hand, Its been 2 years already that I'm sure I like girls, and I've made out and kissed girls when drunk :). I've done worse when sober. The day when I realized I was interested in girls..we were at a party and my friend was drunk.. She just came to me sat on my lap and started kissing me. That's when I said to myself.. Damn dude, girls are hot. I was pretty lucky that there weren't any police or shit like that when it happened. But for all the people out there who are scared to approach the same gender.. I don't think its hard.. Even in Lebanon! Just do it in private for god's sake.

Once upon a time, I dedided to visit a psychologist, having the feeling I am lesbian but I never admited or at least accept it personally.So here I went expressing my self to my brave psychotherapist, she actually knew I am lesbian,once she told me, I refused the idea becuase of my religion view point.After a while I was struglling with my friend that I fell in love with her. Expressing my feelings to my sister, I came out,here she surprised me by saying I accept you as you are.My sister than gave me a push to admite to my psychologist that yes I believe I am a lesbian. My psychologist immediatly replied by it's NOT a sin,a sickness, or smoething wrong. I began to work on my slef to acccpet the idea, but couldn't solve my religious view point. So here comes my smart psychologist by saying:" I asked an open minded prest and he said it's not a sin." I started anylizing things in my mind, and asking my self is it really not a sin according to my religion?I decided to go to an open minded preset, so i aksed him:"Is homosexuality a sin?" He replied by NO it's NOT.The church used to believe homosexuality is victims, now they think it's normal, but according to the churh the pupose between starights is to produce a baby, so they are still asking themselves what is the purpose between homosexuals? So here I need to find the answer until they find there too.The problem in christins is, people used to say that homosexuality accroding to christianity is a sin, because everything people believe in, they through it into religion and say Christianity say it's a sin eventhough Christianity NEVER said this, but TRADITION say this.Finally, I accept it the idea more, and believed more that yes homosexuality IS NOT A SIN ACCRODING TO CHRISTIANITY. I am very proud to be who I am whether I am a lesbian or whatever I am.
