Is Lesbian Dating is Like Football?

Is Lesbian Dating is Like Football?

I sit across the bar table from a friend one Sunday afternoon, surrounded by TV screens showing football games. “I don’t know how to date,” she tells me, exasperated. I shove a tortilla chip in my mouth, not surprised the conversation has turned to dating. I nod in agreement and offer, “If you think about […]

Why Lesbians Ignore Red Flags When Dating

Why Lesbians Ignore Red Flags When Dating

It happened one leisurely Sunday. My girlfriend at the time and I had spent the day at the spa, a peace offering for an ongoing argument. We were joking around and then, just like that. She punched me in the arm. And in that moment it was if all of the years of dating, all […]

Eat, Pray, Love – Lesbian!

Eat, Pray, Love – Lesbian!

Being lesbian is a religion. It’s feast, fast or famine. It’s on our knees begging at the altar between her knees. It’s our tribe, our gaggle of gay girls and our fighting to be included in some social club, meetup, Facebook Group, marriage rights, equal rights and more or hiding in social awkwardness afraid of […]

Is Lesbian Dating the New Easy?

Is Lesbian Dating the New Easy?

What makes me think I could start clean slated? The hardest to learn was the least complicated – Indigo Girls I sit, along with four married/partnered girlfriends, at a table in a bar, in between happy hour and the late hours reserved for the young ones and notice we are all talking about the same […]

Are You Ready for Love?

Are You Ready for Love?

Lately “I’m not ready yet” has been coming up a lot. I’ve heard it–and said it myself-many times, and of course it usually makes sense. Everyone need time to let wounds heal, get re-oriented to new situations, settle in after upheavals. But when does “healing” become “hiding out?” How do you discern what’s truly in […]

Positive Body Image Leads to Better Sex

Positive Body Image Leads to Better Sex

I often ask women to rank the most negative influences on their sexual relationship.  Over half of the time, “negative body image” heads the list.  We’re so trained to stand outside ourselves, judging our bodies–but to enjoy sex we need to enjoy how our bodies feel, not how they look.  So how do you make […]

Why You Need To Love Someone

Why You Need To Love Someone

When I first heard Elton John sing “You Gotta Love Someone” I remembered an incident of TMM (Temporary Moment of Maturity).  I’d been worrying about whether someone I cared for deeply reciprocated my feelings.  Then I realized that what really mattered the most, what would last forever with me, was that I’d let myself love […]

Lesbian Dating: Building Trust

Lesbian Dating: Building Trust

Recently I talked with two women, “Susan” and “Karen.”  They had just started dating a couple months before, and seemed quite in lust. They were glowing and giggling, until the issue of “trust” came up. Susan:  I just wish Karen would trust me more.  She just can’t let herself lean on me.  She’s been hurt […]

Lesbian Dating and the 50/50 Rule

Lesbian Dating and the 50/50 Rule

Today I’m attending a fundraising event where lots of wonderful women will show up to support a good cause–and also, to cruise each other.  Most will put serious energy into looking good, and many will make the eye-contact-and-smiling connection that creates an opportunity for a conversation with a potential date. Then the fun stops.  What […]

The Problem with Pursuing

The Problem with Pursuing

“Never pursue a distancer.” This was the maxim I learned in grad school couples’ therapy classes. It seemed like a no-brainer at the time. How could anyone keep going after someone who doesn’t want you? I would have more self-respect! Until I really fell in love with a lovely woman who was less in love […]
