I know this has already been discussed, but I tried searching and didn't find anything, I guess I used the wrong search terms?

Anyway, I'm 15 yrs old, but I don't go to school (independent study due to some anxiety problems with traditional schooling) so, I don't know where to meet other girls, I would like to have a girlfriend, but have NO clue where to look. I was really struggling with who I am, but now that I no longer feel bad about myself, I'm ready to start meeting other people, but would like to do it in a way where maybe I'm not putting myself out there as much (like at an LGBT youth group?)

I also was curious if GSA meetings are only for the students of that high school or if others are welcome

Hi kristin,

I think you'll probably be welcome to attend your local high school's GSA, best way to find out is contact the person who runs it and have a chat. The first time I went to something like this, I emailed the guy who ran it first.

If you give us an idea of whereabouts you live, we can check if there are any other groups in your area :)

Ok, I found this:
GAY & LESBIAN YOUTH TALK LINE 818-508-1802
North Hollywood, CA 91601

They should be able to give you an idea of what's available where you live.

By the way, I found a GSA near me at a youth center and they're having a conference this Saturday that I'm going to, I'm so excited! The person I talked to on the phone was really nice and I'm really looking forward to it. Thanks again for all your help.

Well, I went and it was awesome! I met some really nice people (nothing romantic) but had a great time and all of the advisors were really cool too, it was a really fun day and I never would've had the courage to go if it weren't for everything here on Scarleteen, thanks so much!
