Where are we all from anyhow?

I’ve been thinking. We are all so anonymous here yet share the same stories. So similar sometimes I wonder if our gay/bi husbands and wives know each other from their secret online groups. I kind of wish we could have a straight spouse party just to vent and have fun. I’m going to disclose that I’m somewhere in the Midwest of America...snowy yet Summery. Think north woods. Anyone else from the Midwest of America?

Re: Where are we all from anyhow?

I'm halfway round the world in New Zealand and I think some are uneasy about letting their whereabouts known. I've reached out twice to members but no luck. I've thought about this a lot, and have realised that if anybody who reads the Forum (and every person in the world can, they just can't post)...if somebody I knew thought they might know who I am.....well, I think I'd be up to talking to them because I'm at a point where this is me....straightspouse, trying to find myself....and quite willing to talk about this.

An all straight spouse party!!  Could use some fun right about now. It’s been so long since anything has been fun. I  live in Quebec, Canada.

I don’t mind..I’m in a...small town near big, ol’ College Station, TX, home of the fightin’ Texas Aggies (football team we’re SO proud of from Texas A&M Univ- a lot of Aggie jokes made 😆).

We live in about the middle of the Netherlands, the province Utrecht. In an old village, with a castle and yes... an operational  classical windmill, near the river Rhine.

Re: Where are we all from anyhow?

Philadelphia PA suburbs USA. We are hunkering down for a major snowstorm, but it doesn't feel that much different from hunkering down for Covid.
In the 20 years I've been associated with SSN, there have been many get-togethers organized in various places in the US, UK and Australia. Until Covid there were regular ones in Chicago and Florida. When I was new I found them unbelievably affirming (and fun). They were organized primarily in secret closed groups rather than a public forum like this to make sure there were no surprise uninvited "guests". Hopefully gatherings will resume after Covid.

Re: Where are we all from anyhow?

I'm in the midwest, and I hate it.  I didn't want to move here to begin with, I was struggling with the winter weather, and I wasn't even settled into our new house when he "disclosed" a few months later.  Between the depressing winter (the snow never melts, and it's just so dirty and gross and dreary here) and covid shutting everything down, I feel like I'm being punished for not knowing and following him out here like the good little wife.

I saw someone say on social media the other day, you always hate the place where you hear bad news...or something to that effect.  I don't know their story, but I understood the feeling.  I will hate this place forever, and I cannot wait to finally get out.
