Celebrate Lesbian Love!

Celebrate Lesbian Love!

Let’s talk about celebrating romantic love.  Specifically, celebrating what psychologist Dorothy Tennov named “limerence.”  This is a state of falling in love,  characterized by obsessive thoughts, intense longing, and delirious bliss when thinking of the beloved.   New lovers lean into each other, pay passionate attention, adore each other, feel their hearts bursting,  and their spirits skipping […]

Lesbian Dating: Try a Little Kindness

Before the election,  I was writing a response to a question about the ifs, whens, and hows of “casual sex.”  A woman planning an Olivia cruise wondered if she could enjoy a shipboard sexual encounter, without dire emotional consequences.  It’s a valid question, worth being thoughtful about. But then we had this election, and that […]

Lesbian Love: Me Talk Pretty Silly One Day

My Top Seven Do’s & Don’ts for Dating Women

After divorcing, jumping the fence, and dating for a while, I began wondering why most of the people I went out with disappeared after the first date.

Lesbian Dating: Two Goals of a First Date

After months of obsessing, Sally had finally scheduled her first date.  She was interested in someone on a dating website, “chatted” a few times online, and set up a lunch meeting.  I was impressed with her enthusiasm…but then  she started thinking out loud. Sally’s date-to-be lived near a lake, and  Sally had a boat.  “Maybe […]
