– because we all need a wise Lesbian BFF!
By Marci Alt
Sometimes you just need the advice of a seasoned queer woman in your life! As always, I want to thank everyone at Peach for giving me this soapbox. I really enjoy the questions that are coming to me. Remember, I answer these the Lesbo way, so if I piss you off, it’s me that’s pissing you off, not my fabulous editor or the boys that run Peach. Please email me any questions you want the answer to – I may not be Dear Abby; however, I’ve lived long enough to give solid advice!
I am a little afraid and embarrassed to ask this question, but I’m going to ask anyway. I’ve been dating someone for two weeks and wondering if it’s ok to start flirting with his best friend. I think he’s really hot. I don’t want to screw up anything, though, by flirting with his BFF. Suggestions on how I should handle this?
Wow! Really wow. I think you have already answered your own question, as I believe if you’re already looking to hook up with the BFF than with the guy you are just dating, then the two of you have no future. Now to answer the second part: REALLY? His BFF? Why not just kick him to the curb as clearly, you want something else. I must caution you: I know, if it were me or my BFF, we would stand together and kick your TRICKSTER self to the curb. Really, there is plenty of meat around Atlanta, so you should not SHIT in your own backyard.
I have been working and doing sales for a company for over 20 years, and since Covid, I have realized I am not happy working there. I feel obligated as I have given them over 20 years, and they’ll never find a better salesperson than me. I don’t want to hurt them, but I really want to move on.

Toot your own horn much? I say you go where you know you should go. I am sure if the company you are talking about has been your employer for over 20 years, they will make it just fine without you. Congrats on 20 years! If you’re looking for a sales job, please send Peach your resume; we would love to have a look at it and give you that new sales career.
