Take Me Home For Valentine’s Day!

* * * Valentine’s Vamp has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 23. Unfortunately I have a prior commitment and won’t be able to attend.

* * Valentine’s Vamp is being postponed for another date due to inclement weather. Stay tuned and, most importantly, stay warm, dry, and safe!

If you always wanted to ask me out but were afraid I would say no OR if you simply want to contribute to a great cause and have a fun night out with a cray cray femme… Here is your chance:

  1. When do femmes go out hunting for stone butches? I am a gentleman …gentle butch. I am in my thirties with no children. I am drug drama and disease free and also I do not smoke. Drink once or twice a month. Well? I know you must be thinking this dude is in the wrong place. Alongside you, Ms.Lapachet there must be other femmes reading this. ;@) .

  2. Ahh Lee, I love a butch gentleman with all the wonderful qualities you describe in yourself. Speaking as a femme, I do love to be asked out and romanced however, so I hope you can overcome that shyness and ask a femme out.

    Alas you are a tad bit 😉 younger than me. I am a “wiser” femme, in my 50’s. 🙂 Sounds like the huntress that finds you will be one lucky femme.
