First weekend of Spring

The past weekend, cool T came and visited Fire and me.

Cool T is an aussie who is best mates with our old housemate Z in T-ville. Long story short, he now lives in Cambridge and we invited him for a weekend of Copenhagen sightseeing and Fire and her boyfriends housewarming party.

We ate loads of good Danish food, drank Carlsberg and Tuborg beers, walked around in the beautiful spring weather and danced around all night in Fire and C's very old apartment.

On friday Fire took Cool T around the center of the city. Copenhagen is really really old so there's lots of castles, churches and beautiful buildings. She also took him to see the little mermaid. It's a sculpture made to look like the mermaid from the fairytale of Hans Christian Andersen. I'ts quite small so most people just get a little disappointed.

So here she is and of course Cool T.

On Saturday we walked around the city for a couple of hours and the Fire took us to the castle of Rosenborg. The castle has the museum of the crown jewels so we went to se how many jewels they could fit into one crown or one piece of jewelry. It was a LOT. I would def. not mind having one of the beautiful emerald or ruby pieces.

 Saturday was the day of the housewarming party. It was everything a good party needs to be. Lovely people, a steady flow of drinks, music, and a swedish woman who scared the s### out of everybody because she was flat out crazy.

On the sunday we were all a bit hungover to say the least. Fire and I ended up buying 18 McDonalds Burgers for 4 people. Probably the most disgusting thing I have ever experienced. Fire ended up being sick, so C, Cool T and I went out in the beautiful sunny spring weather. C showed us around the Opera House which is quite awesome. Afterwards we went to Christiania. I haven´t spent much time there, but it is an amazing place when the weather is great and you can sit outside enoying some good coffee.

Oh yea, and told 2 more friends at the party.  I still love peoples reactions when i tell them i'm in to girls. Most people come to me after a bit time and say "but of course, of course you're in to girls":-)

The date

I've got a profile on a internetdating site. Or actually 2 different sites. One International and one Danish...

I don't know how it is anywhere else, but here in Denmark it is quite a taboo.
I have several friends who have found long-time partners on the internet, but you rarely talk about it.

Back when I wasn't aware of the fact that I'm gay, I tried finding guys in this Danish dating-site. I've had some OK dates and some horrific ones. I signed up for it when I had just moved to the City. I didn't really know anyone in Copenhagen so it was a way to meet guys. After the worst date ever I stopped renewing my membership.

Now I've kind of in the same situation as when I first moved to the city. I don't really have any friends who are gay, so I haven't got much of a chance to meet any beautiful ladies. That's why I decided to make a profile on a dating-site.

I thought it was terrifying to make that profile, but i did it, and last week I went on my first date with a cute girl named M.
We had been texting eachother for about a week when a asked her out for a glass of wine.

I've never asked anyone out before (I've never really taken the lead when it came to guys). But she said yes and we had a great night.

We talked for more than 5 hours and really just could have kept on talking. I't was quite an amazing experience except from the fact that I didn't really feel anything. I don't feel like going on a second date, but i would love going out with her as a friend.

Now the questiont is how the hell do I tell her that?.

Who am I?

Thought i might do a smal post in who I am and what i do.

I'm a 25 yo girl who lives in Copenhagen, Denmark. I love living life. I love travelling, studying and I have a great passion for food.

Originally I'm from a very small village in the west of Jutland. When i graduated from Gymnasiet (Denmarks version of High School) I wanted to travel and see what the world had to offer. I spent 7 months as an Au Pair in Zürich and loved it.
I loved the city, the people and of course having my sister around as she lived in Switzerland to.

I moved to Copenhagen in 2008 and quickly fell in love with the city. It has everything you need. The cultural side is very diverse, the city is beautiful in it self, and there is nothing better than a summer's day at King's Garden with friends and some cooled wine (And yes, we enjoy quite a lot of alcohol ind this city).

Yes, this is me.

I have always seen myself as a heterosexual. I have never been in a proper relationship with a guy but i always assumed it was because of the issues of low self-worth I have battled since i was a small child.

But now... Now i think it was simply due to the fact that I am not into guys. That would be a quite plausible explanation:-)

And yes, this is also me. 

I just can't figure out why the hell i couldn't have figured this out years ago? I would have liked to have known this when i was 18. It would have spared me a LOT of bad decisions regarding men. Oh well, at least i know now, and maybe I just wasn't ready until now...

Telling People: Fire

On new year's eve i decided to tell one of my very best friends; Fire (of course not her real name).

First I want to share our story.
Fire and I met in the first weeks of uni. We were in the same group of people and ended up doing a project together in the 3rd semester. At some point Fire talked about doing an exchange to an Australian University in the 4th semester. I love travelling and living in other cultures so i asked if i could join her adventures.
In january 2011 we went to Australia and did a semester at the James Cook University in Townsville.

During the stay in OZ we traveled to Cairns, Uluru, Adelaide, Melbourne Sydney and most importantly Brisbane. Because of these 6 months of traveling we have a very strong friendship. We support each other and do a lot of wine-drinking:-)

Fire and I celebrated New Year's eve with 4 other friends. It was a great night with amazing food, lots of champagne and G&Ts. At some point in the evening i decided to talk to her about my discovery. i LOVED how she reachted. I told her how i had a crush on a girl from Uni, and that i thought i might be gay. She was like; "OK, and you think that's special?". Fire doesn't care at all. But she is extremely curious into my adventures in to the lesbian world.

Telling People: My sister

After a few months of just thinking and thinking and thinking until my head spun around, I decided to talk to my sister.

My sister i 6 years my senior and have always been the one person in my life i knew i could rely on. I have always told her everything and she has always supported me in every choice i made.
Sis lives in Switzerland, so at christmas, which we always celebrate with our parents and brother, i decided that it was time.

I told her how i had a crush on a girl from uni and that i had been quite confused. She smiled and just wanted to hear about my thoughts. I was surprised how easy it was to talk about and how well she recieved the news. I don't really know what i had expected... We come from a loving family and have always been respected for the choices we have made. But still, maybe because i hadn't seen it coming, i was happily surprised by my sisters reaction and curiosity.

Now, whenever we talk, she asks how its goes and just want to hear more about my adventures in to the lesbian world.

I was 24 before i began considering if I was actually gay. I am now 25 and pretty sure I am gay.
Through the years I have kissed guys, I have had sex with guys, I have dated guys for up to 4 months, but i have never really been in love.

I have always thought of myself as too choosy or picky when it came to men. I thought somehow the lack of love was due to low self-worth, but now I am not so sure.

Last year I had a somewhat life-changing experience. I crushed on a girl for my class at Uni. In the beginning I didn’t even know what was going on. Suddenly I was looking to seeing her, I was laughing at all of her jokes and so on. You know how it is. Getting giddy and giggly whenever she talked to me.
Following a few weeks of this I finally realised what was going on. I had a crush on a woman!
Being a woman myself, who have never thought of other women in this way, it was quite a shocker. I spent a few weeks just contemplating the thought and possibility of me actually being a gay woman.

7 months after my first discovery I am more and more convinced that I am actually gay.
I have talked to my amazing sister and some of my best friends and i finally feel quite at peace with this discovery.
