You’ve all heard the joke about what lesbians do on their second date, right? Buy wedding rings? So help me out. Is this true?
I keep reading lesbian novels in which the protagonist and new love interest fall IMMEDIATELY and MADLY in love. Is that how it works in real life, or is this just a literary device? I read it so often I’m starting to think it is true and that I missed the thunderbolt of true love. Yikes! Mine was the more experiential type – I liked someone, dated her, liked her more, dated her more, fell in love, and then three years later, not three days later, decided to marry her. Help! What’s wrong with me?
Second part of my query, assuming above is true and most lesbians fall into immediate, massive love, does it last? My immediate, massives were usually satisfied after a week or so. Sometimes a night.
As I writer and reader of lesbian fiction I’m curious. Let me know what you think. Share your stories.
(I’ll try and post everyone’s comments but am having trouble getting them to show…)
