After a break-up some people cry, eat their feelings and hibernate until either they feel better and ready to move forward, or they’re dragged out of their caves by concerned friends, while other people tear up the town looking to rebound. We can argue which is healthier but since everybody’s different, I think it depends on the person as to which is the right thing to do, and sometimes a person may need to figure it out the hard way for herself which is better.

When I kissed a girl for the first time, I thought I was bi. I had always dated men but when I kissed her, I knew I wasn’t kissing her in the way sorority girls do – I was into it. So I came to the logical conclusion that I was bisexual. It wasn’t until a year later after dating both men and women that I realized I was actually gay, and both bi and straight were phases.

My ex-girlfriend was hesitant at first to tell me she loved me because she was worried she was confusing lust with love. When she told me this, I was upset. She had already said “I love you,” and it felt like she was taking it back. I knew with all my heart that I was in love with her, and her need to define – to calculate – what she was feeling offended and confused me. I had never thought about the difference until then, but when I did I had to admit that she actually made a good point. When we first meet someone we’re really into, we want them all the time – whether it’s sexually or emotionally (talking all the time) or both – it can be easy to confuse lust with love.
I think women fall into relationships faster than men for 2 reasons. First, we are conditioned to find a mate; nesting is in our blood. Second, women have less of a communication barrier between each other than men seem to. Combine the instinct to couple and the desire and ability to communicate openly and it’s no wonder we fall into relationships head-first.
The question I’ve received a lot though lately is – what is sex between women? In a straight relationship, the answer is more obvious – penetration. We all learned that in sex-ed when we put the condom on the banana. You know, after we learned about gonorrhea and before lesbian sex was conveniently nixed from the syllabus. And while it’s beginning to seep into pop culture, “I Kissed a Girl” hardly cuts it. So let’s talk about it.

It’s tough to make friends in a new city, especially in your 20s.
You’re lucky if you move to a city where you have college or high school friends, or maybe a family member your age or have a job with young co-workers. Even knowing just one person can help. But if you don’t know anyone, moving can be daunting and lonely. Especially if you are in any way shy.
