I've fooled around with women before, kissing and heavy petting and such, but nothing I would describe as sex. It doesn't help that the lesbian cis women I personally know are
Dating as a queer woman presents a unique set of issues. Men would either ask me to explain what the term meant, incorrectly assume they knew exactly what it meant, or completely misidentify me.
