Dating

Lets face it, we all want relationship — we really do – but sometimes, it’s scary. And we might do stupid sh*t along the way, and when it comes to dating we’ve all become a little bit cynical.

When it comes to lesbians, there are typically two main categories that we’re broken into: That would be, studs and femmes. However, many lesbians choose to stay somewhere in the middle area – I like to call that stem territory. (Stem = stud + femme, for those who weren’t aware.)…

Minor Arguments Vs. Big Blowouts
