During our conversation, Lisa questions why dating over 60 has become so “serious.” It’s almost as if we have forgotten how to have fun and flirt.Having talked with hundreds of women in the Sixty and Me community, I can see how there could be some truth to this.
For example, my itemized catalogue of Sexual Positions: Best to Worst did not always go over well when I was on the dating scene.
Especially when I helpfully unfolded it post-coitus. Websites have FAQ’s, appliances have manuals, why must the intricacies of lesbian dating practices be learned on the fly?
I’ve polled a group of Lesbian Dating Experts (Read: random Facebook friends) to create a comprehensive — rather than a FAQ let’s call it a FUCT (Frequent Unfortunate and Confusing Truisms)**Note to Grumpy Lesbians: I’m certain many of you do not fit these stereotypes (No, I’m not.). She’ll text you “I want you to do me in the bathroom,” but she’ll offer her cheek when you go to kiss her goodnight. If she says “No one could ever really love me,” for God sake believe her. She says, “I want it to be special; let’s wait.” She means “I have intimacy issues.”She says “I just want to hold you.” She means “I’m actually straight.”If she says she likes sex because it “I don’t know, just…feels good,” run.
We Sk8 is a perfect example of a rapper making it happen in the internet era.
“She’s butch,” my newly single friend said, as if that explained everything.“Right,” I nodded, because I thought it did.“didn’the.” She spoke as if to a three-year-old, albeit one moonlighting as a psychotherapist.“Right,” I said.
