Doe anyone know of Queer Swing Dancing classes in The Bay?
I've been wanting to learn, and would love it if it was a whole bunch of queer folks!
I'm a Lesbian almost 21 college student- So it would be cool if there was something out there where I'm not the only one under 40- or even 30... and the not the only one that's female identified. lol.
If there is nothing out there like that that's queer centered, does anyone know any that are queer friendly and again, where I'm not going to be the youngest one.
Thanks again!

Think laterally about what is exercise. ANYTHING that gets your body moving and your muscles working is exercise and is better for you than no-exercise. If you are having enough fun you won't care if it makes you sweaty.
Happy birthday for Sunday. Join some clubs. Have fun with your life and you will start liking yourself more, and then it will become easier and easier to treat yourself right.

Have you try making taking some classes

Or joining a club?? Like everyone else said meeting people through friends is the best way. But since thats not working for you. I would try taking a salsa or swing dancing classes. Ratio I heard is good there. And since you're the shy type you don't really have to make the first move.
Not sure about internet dating. But a friend of mine found some success in saloon. Not sure the exact web address. But there are plenty of that out there

Maybe salsa. Social dancing rather than fixed-partner classes.
People go to dance rather than just to pick up - tho' plenty of single people go partly to meet people - & if you go regularly you get to know new friends & their social circle.
& it's fun!
Or, if that's not your thing then pick a social/club thing that you would enjoy & just go do it - not with the single-minded aim of 'finding a man' but to have fun with people who share your interest & see what social options open up & you'll naturally meet single men.
As to the 'quality' bit, well that's down to how discerning you are in your judgement of the guys you do meet & what type of guys you tend to select/be attracted to.
