I’m straight but I’m starting to question my sexuality, so how do I know if this is something I really want or if it is just a phase?
Here are a few questions you might ask yourself with a few tips that I hope you can find help if you are in a situation like this!
1. Will our period sync?
Some say “Duh” and others say they do not know, to be honest, I can´t give you the answer to that one but I do hope it does happen.
2. Will I feel weird with public affection?
At first, it might be a bit strange if you care what other people think and depending on the area that you are at. Some women who are in long healthy relationships still feel uncomfortable and other women care zero amounts of what other people think or may say.
It will all depend on you and what you are comfortable with.
3. How do I know if a woman is romantically attracted to me?
The easiest thing is to just ask, of course, it can be awkward but only if you make it awkward. If she identified herself as a lesbian it will be easier for you to pick up a flirty vibe from her side but also remember she could also just be friendly. Just because she is a lesbian does not mean she is automatically attracted to you.
If you ask and get a “No” as an answer because she did not flirt. Do not feel bad, it is better to know sooner than to do something you will later regret.
4. Does one need to be more manly?
No. If you are a butch or a fem, it is your choice. There are no rules to this! If you both feel like being butch then go ahead. Whatever makes you happy!
5. Whose pay the bill when we go out?
Few of my friends asked me this question before since their boyfriends will take them out and pay for dinner and they wondered how does it work with lesbians? No rules. Most of the time girls will share their bill or if they feel cute they will take their partner out for dinner and pay for it. it is like you buy me a drink and I buy you one after kind of deal.
It is nice to share responsibilities.
6. I do not know how to have sex with a woman.
My advice, trust yourself, you`ve got this! Most women will tend to look on the internet but it will only bring up more stress to do it that way and most details on the internet you should not trust at all!
The right one will talk to you about it and will be patient with you.
Don´t stress too much about it, just let it happen naturally.
7. Do I need protection for lesbian sex?
I won’t go too deep into that question since we have an entire post about safe sex, just scroll down our page and you will find it.
8. What if we have sex and I hate it?
I guess you need to ask yourself what gender you prefer. Remember sex is about a lot more than just playing around but about love also. The moment you fall in love everything else will fall in place too.
9. Are we moving to fast?
Lesbian relationships tend to move faster than straight relationships, at least is a common belief. I guess if you know you know. That is something only you and your partner can discuss. If you feel like things are going as they should then good for you! Do what makes you happy.
10. Coming out to family and friends.
This one could be hard or easy. Friends are easy to come out to since they will support you no matter what (if they don´t they are not real friends) and only want to see you happy!
The family might take a while, before you tell them, make sure you are 100% honest with yourself about your feelings and that you feel comfortable with yourself. They might find it hard in the beginning but everything will work out just fine in the end!
I hope I was able to answer a few of your questions!
Now go have fun with that girl.
