Maybe it was my aloofness that drew in the dudes (straight girls take note), but damn, dudes were easy like ~Sunday morning~.All you have to do is bat a lash, act entirely disinterested, cold and bitchy, and boys will fall at your feet.Only the two of you can answer the question of when you are a family. Gay and lesbian relationships have the same long-term success rates as heterosexual relationships, so that's not an issue. What's it like to be out of the closet and see your stepkids suffering from bigotry and ignorance?Let's assume that this isn't just a dating situation, but that you're deeply in love and building a life together. There's that legal stuff looming, especially if the other bioparent does not approve (as is often the case). How can you be a stepparent to somebody who doesn't know you're gay?Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of private Facebook messages from baby lesbians who are freshly out of the closet and asking me all kinds of questions:“How do I date girls? I will never forget how terrified I was when I first realized I wanted to exclusively swim in the girl pond. I exerted zero effort into attracting boy creatures, but I learned quickly that I didn’t really need to.
These were certainly the questions on many people's lips this week, when it was revealed that Cabinet Minister Chris Huhne's mistress, Carina Trimingham, had dropped her female partner of a number of years in favour of a man.It is a great thing for you personally if you’ve figured out that you’re a lesbian at this young age and have the moxie within you to pursue this sexual path wholeheartedly.Many lesbians do not live as lesbians until later in life, after they have pursued more conventional heterosexual paths, found them severely wanting, and only then realized what they needed to do.Your mother is having a coming to terms with your coming out to her, so much so that she is needing to treat your homosexuality as though it was a disease to be cured.Though it may be tempting to want to clash with her over this issue and demand that she accept your choices, I don’t think that is going to be the best way to handle the situation in the long term. As hard as it was for you to tell your mother about your lesbianism, think of how hard it has been for her to hear that message.
