Women helping women arrow Why are women leaving NCH ?

the number of men over 50 doesnt bother me - so long as they are polite and friendly (which all here seem to be).

i really dont understand why that would be a reason for ppl leaving - fair enough if u dont want to interact with older guys, but just ignore them; theres enough women and younger ppl here that u can still make some good friends.
On Campus Nudists arrow Roomates and Being Nude

JessicaT

Posted: Oct 15, 2008

i live alone now so it's not a big issue for me. but when i first moved out of home i went into a shared house with some friends. i had my own room but being nude in the common areas wasnt really possible. i think most of the people i lived with would have been ok about it (those i am still friends with now know i am a nudist and have no problem with it), but it was such a busy place, with all sorts of people coming or going, i wouldnt have been 100% comfortable being nude in that environment.

so i just toughed it out, went nude in my room and on rare occasions when i had the place to myself. i never hid that i was a nudist from my housemates but i didnt advertise it either. ironicly it was only when i left to move in with my (then) boyfriend that i became mush more open about who i am with people i know.

unless i know i'm going straight back out (or yeah in like the next 15 mins or so), i leave my clothes at the door when i come in and dont put them on again until i have to go out. its my ex who got me into the habit of that but it suits me so i've kept it up. i live alone and the friends who call round are pretty comfortable when it comes to my being nude so to me i dont have much reason to be dressed here.
Home Nudists arrow Living w/ Roomates and Family

when i lived with my mum she got to be pretty okay with my nudity. i kept it secret at first but she found me out, but once it was out in the open it was really no big deal. we were all girls together and so long as i followed the house rules she accepted it - it was when i tried to bend them we had rows about it. i also think when my sister got into it too, mum felt a little outnumbered which didnt help.

when i moved out i shared a house with some friends and so walking around nude all the time was never really an option. they knew i was a nudist and most of them saw me naked at least once while i lived there but i was always conscious of not rocking the boat or making it into a big thing so i tended to keep my clothes on outside my room.

now i have my own place so its my rules haha!

i dont have a backyard now. but when i lived with my mum her yard was private enough to sunbathe nude in, i used to be out there a lot.
Women helping women arrow Do clothes define us?

JessicaT

Posted: Sep 11, 2008

i think for a long time i wore who i was in my clothes. in my teens i was a goth/punk/emo, whatever you want to call it. all baggy skater jeans and hoodys and band tops and sweatbands and too much eyeliner and black nail polish and all the rest. i like the music so i wore the fashion to show what i liked and cuz thats who i was and wanted to be.

it didnt stop me being a nudist, in a way because i already felt "alternative" they idea of something like nudism wasnt so hard to get my head around. i still dressed that way when i wasnt nude, and kept up the style - i can remember being at swims wearing nothing but black nail polish on my finger and toenails, must have looked pretty shocking to some!
Women helping women arrow What's holding you back?

before i became a nudist i had so many body worries. i was a teenager, i hadnt got much self confidence and i thought i was fat (although really i suppose curvy was a better description).

startng nudism gave me confidence i didnt have before and taught me to accept and eventually be proud of my body. walking round the house naked, seeing my bare self reflected in every shiny surface got me to see myself as i was, not how i thought i should be, and eventually realising that to be able to live the life i wanted would require me being naked in front of other people gave me a big boost.

im not a small girl by any means but im proud to be who i am.
Women helping women arrow Relationships & Nudism

JessicaT

Posted: Sep 11, 2008

im gonna sound like such a slut here next to all you happily married/settled ladies!

but ive had a few relationships in the last few years, since getting into nudism. ive had a boyfriend who never went nudist but had no problem with me doing it, one who had a huuuuge problem with it (specifically with people other than him seeing me naked) and one who wasnt a nudist until he met me, then took it up, but dropped it again when we split up and confessed hed only really done it for my sake in the first place.

my last (now ex) was the first who was into nudism before we met. i didnt know at first but found out before we got together. it was one of the things that brought us together, and one of the deciding factors that got me moving in with him only a few months into our relationship - which maybe i shouldnt have done, but i was convinced we were soulmates and meant to be together yada yada.... he was a good guy though, but it wasnt to be, and myabe we shouldnt have rushed into things and things might be better now.
Your friends aren't nudists?! arrow types of people

most of my friends are definitely what youd call free spirited but even then none of them have really been prepared to give a try to nudism. not that i really try and force them. they're more kind of live and let live people - they have no problem accepting that im a nudist or even seeing me without clothes on - so long as they arent expected to join in!
Your friends aren't nudists?! arrow Friends finding out

my mum and sister know. my sisters a nudist too and mum, although we havent always seen eye-to-eye about it, accepts it as one of the things about me that i love and is never going to change. my dad knows too - he and my mum divorced years ago but she told him about me and he was pretty surprised but never against it. hes not seen me undressed though, i think that would be a bit too much of a shock!

most of my close friends know to various amounts (like, some are cool enough to not care if im nude when they come over, some just know im into "that sort of thing") - im a pretty good judge of who i want to know. most know cuz of my ex boyfriend, who was also a nudist (before we met) and never really had a problem telling others about us!

Women helping women arrow Friend Requests

one thing i have noticedis this. i joined this site a couple of days ago and cuz i wanted to put a bit of thought into my profile i didnt fill it ou tstraight away. so there was maybe 24 hrs when i had nothing on my profile except for 1 pic, my age, and the fact im a woman.

during that time i got about 10 add requests all from guys (of varios ages). i wonder what they were responding to? as id got nothing there about myself so they didnt know what im like. i could have been horrible (im not!)!!

that said everyone whos added me has been nice and friendly and none of the guys ive had any bad feelings about.

i did have one or two i turned down cuz they had private profiles and didnt say anything about themselfs in adding me. its like, im not gonna say yes to being your friend if you cant be bothered to tell me anything about yourself.

oh and one guy told me my photos were "incredible" - i have 4 pics, just my face & shoulders really, clothed in 3 of them. nothing special, i guess he was just trying to pay me a compliment but it put me off cuz it seemed so untrue!
