First dates do’s and don’ts
Ask her out directly. We might seem like captain obvious but you don’t want to be beating around the bush forever, so to speak.
Listen as well as talk, be just as eager to learn about her as she is to learn about you.
Talk about a variety of topics, nobody is judging you for having a conversation about Jurassic park instead of just talking about what’s going on in the gay scene, you are a strong, beautiful, multi-dimensional woman and that’s fine.
Text her after the date if it went well, we all know how it feels to be worrying if you messed up on a date, if it was a great date let her know. Just don’t text her fifty times in a row single white female style.
Take her somewhere where you know a bunch of people you know are going to be, she doesn’t need to meet you’re ex flings and flirty friends on the first date.
Bring up the ex files. There’s nothing worse than being compared or feeling like you’re on a date with someone who can’t let things go.
Reveal everything about yourself in the first 30 minutes, she doesn’t need to know about how many straight girls you have seduced in the past, leave something to the imagination!
Bring up Biphobia or past straight girl crushes, they are painful and they may have led to Alex/Piper style disasters but keep it positive and as judgment free as possible.
Tell all your friends afterwards or boast on social media, its no secret the lesbian world is fairly small when it comes to dating (see Alice’s “board” from the L word.) The best relationships are the ones with just the two people involved.
