Sadly, being a woman and dating women does not give me as much of an advantage as I had hoped.I can only imagine how difficult it is for dudes – like learning a foreign language that changes constantly.

They are also the ones who set the pace.” Why do you think guys have it easier?
You have to interpret long sighs and furtive glances, remember obscure dates and deal with the inevitable “everything’s fine.” I, at least, speak the language. Whenever my ex-boyfriends and I got in a fight we’d have a little discussion or argument.
