Are I On A Romantic Date Or Are We Just Two Pretty Ladies Hanging Out? | Autostraddle


What’s the gayest drilling thing you could potentially ever envision?

Two rainbow-striped unicorns banging their unique glittery cocks together while shooting stars using their assholes? a ymca/it’s pouring guys mash-up playing on a continuing circle for the skinny jeans part of Forever 21? Eating a salad for lunch?! WRONG.


his could be the gayest of the many possible things:

planning to a Meshell Ndegeocello show, with a goddamned lesbian, that’s getting used in a motherfucking FOLK-MUSIC CLASS.


ame set match, friends.

And I’ve experienced a shower house before. I am aware from homosexual.

I’m into love from wherever i will have it. And I also happen known to put on a couple of work boots into the winter months, and that I in addition come across feamales in neckties incredibly appealing. I additionally additionally like luxuriating in some comfortable-ass environments. I like to go searching a hot woman’s nicely appointed digs, seething like a jealous youngster, appreciating all hung tapestries and presented photos and put-away clothes while psychologically scolding my self to be such a lazy teenage son. Why don’t You will find any motherfucking art? Why all things in my personal fridge is useless and expired? Would i’ve a first aid package? Are my personal threadcounts sufficient? And, honestly,

I’m not sure how exactly to perform any kind of that shit. Or the best places to buy it.

Which explains why I hold sexting your older sis so hard. Here’s a listing of the domesticated home circumstances I am marginally good at:

1 .) Preparing

. Bitches gotta eat, son. This bitch below can braise lamb shanks. and come up with a fantastic quiche. I’m able to roll my own personal cash. I will slow down roast you a brisket. We have a goddamned Cuisinart. My souffles increase, my personal chickens prepare attractively, my cookies are crisp across the sides and smooth in the centre. I worked in a bakery for three years, and I also will make you a cheesecake in a water tub! I can push you to be petit fours dipped in fondant! Paper-thin steak carpaccio! Salmon ceviche with oranges! What you may fancy, I got you.

2.) Disinfecting the bathroom.

This really is my personal the majority of preferred out of all the duties, as you don’t need to be mindful when splashing every hard surface liberally with bleach and standing back to enjoy every one of the cholera and measels and other things that you dragged in throughout the bottoms of your feet rinse off clean on the drain. I can’t carry out any one of that monotonous washing, all that fine dusting of knick knacks and crap? Never. That is why my personal apartment is decorated like jail. NO FUCKING DUSTING.

3.) Killing those disgusting centipede circumstances.

Holy Jesus, those drilling things are gross. But i shall kill them rather than also squeal while their tiny smashed feet remain going for a-two moments back at my hand.

4.) Remembering which of the 8,719 DirecTV stations is which.

501 is actually HBO. 282 is Pet Environment. 242 is actually American. 356 is actually MSNBC. 264 is BBC America. 331 is MTV. 202 is CNN. 237 is actually Bravo. 525 is actually Starz. 206 is actually ESPN. 231 is Foods Network. 419 is CNN in Espanol. 253 is Lifetime Movie Network. 248 is actually FX. 559 is actually Independent Movie Channel. 245 is TNT. 265 is A&E. I do perhaps not understand which may be the research Channel. Or even the Oprah one. Record, often. In addition will not view any channel under 100, because I do not pay $120/month to look at no-cost screwing television.

But i will be also somehow incapable of carrying out any of the additional shit. I can’t alter a-flat tire. I don’t know how exactly to correct grout.


‘m not sanding a vintage fucking dresser from Salvation Army.

I can’t hammer situations! I don’t have a fucking screwdriver! I still have to ask my personal gay boyfriends to come over and place my personal IKEA home furniture with each other while they also provide unwanted guidance about resuscitating that certain perishing butt place i can not bring me to dispose of and criticize my personal mismatched dishtowels. That type of shit is actually absurd in my experience, buying energy resources and masking tape with cash that might be or else spent on a new lip stick i will be always will be too sluggish to place on myself. At this time there is a lightbulb that requires switching but i’m too chickenshit to stand on a chair and do so, so I’m merely awaiting a single day some body comes over and I also can trick him into doing it. Yes it’s true, HOW MANY DUMB ASSHOLES CAN IT TAKE TO CHANGE A LIGHTBULB.

So this entire sapphic thing began innocently sufficient.


mails + texting + hangouts = BFFs.

There clearly was some flirting, but every person i am aware is a goddamned flirt. Also, as soon as you come up with your own snatch on the net, continuously men and women simply fall the fucking pretense to you.



I found myself into the restroom prior to the show and this also girl shouted, “Bitches Gotta Eat! I like the manner in which you state pussyhole!” in a complete intermission-packed women’ place. Additionally, we went into our shared lesbian pal Denise, who is remarkable and great, beyond your bathroom so there had been plenty screwing the hormone estrogen therefore a lot of girls just who fist additional women in that building

my ovaries attempted to produce asexually.

Hot damn. Anyway, people only say gross crap in my experience the goddamned time. We do not read extreme engrossed. HOLD ONE MINUTE HOLD-UP.

By far the most terrifying thing about getting on a maybe-date with a woman:

Okay. Sometimes when I’m on a romantic date with a dude and he is monotonous or foolish i’ll excuse myself on restroom and phone call Caitlin and get love, “Grrrrrrrrrl, could you kindly describe in my opinion something happening from the bout of

The Great Spouse

that i will be missing immediately?” therefore we’ll talk crap for a moment and laugh at that stupid arsehole and

We’ll move my spanx back-up to my hard nipples,

then i get back to the dining table renewed and go through another twenty-minute dissertation throughout the brand-new Bond movie and it is all good. As soon as we got to the tv show I experienced the sort of diarrhea which makes you end assuming in Jesus and that I was actually like, “i am merely browsing go directly to the restroom (before I have to sit in a tough seat clenching my sphincter for an hour or so, omg) before we have the chairs” and she mentioned, “I have to pee, as well” and I also ended up being like “peace out, sis” before i drilling remembered that


I found myself like, “Um, okay” therefore we walked to the bathroom with each other and I tried to select a much stall but every black colored lesbian in Chicago was at that show and also in THAT TOILET and may a night really find out more mortifying than fiery liquid stools in public areas?

This is what I found myself dressed in because I know you want to know: black colored jeggings, black colored low cut top, black draped cardigan (shut up, I borrowed it from your own mommy), and knee-high black footwear. That is correct, wanks:


dressed in a pair of sex sneakers.

And yes, we place an insole inside them because my personal back was actually hurting, what exactly? And yes yes, the very last time I went with a man I did put on medicated Crocs flip-flops. But I happened to be truly attempting now! Passionate or not, sluts be noticing every goddamned thing you actually ever fucking do. In fact, I would had meal along with her on Wednesday with environmentally friendly fingernails, and initial thing she noticed was that on monday those exact same nails were motherfucking purple.

The 2nd many terrifying benefit of probably courting a female:

they see everything. After all, ANYTHING. If a person sees your new manicure this means he’s damp. If a woman sees that shit this means she’s vision. The minute she indicated it out I was like a deer in screwing headlights. Really does she see that this zipper is messed up? Which my jacket is actually slightly snug because I invested the totality in the last four months eating ham? Fuck my life, i will be dressed in that weird-fitting bra! sluts will appraise your entire motherfucking existence inside time it can take you to definitely go through the beverage eating plan. We found for products before the tv series, and because i obtained truth be told there initial we took a second to hyperventilate in a corner while pushing napkins inside my armpits, even though I became modifying the tummy-smoothing waistband of my personal jeans it dawned on me that she entirely understands that there was a thick coating of elasticized spandex under my garments holding all my personal beef and mozzarella cheese in.


Whenever dating, we count excessively in the inherent disinterest and thoughtlessness in the typical male to give you an environment of secret and intrigue to my otherwise fat and flushed life. Guys never really know that you don’t get the duration twenty times a month, would they? Since this one-time I found myself matchmaking this dimwit baseball member and didn’t feel like shaving or wearing anything except that meat jeans for three months directly and so I told him I experienced my duration and he decided for, like, fourteen handjobs or something like that rather.


o they know that sweater gowns are sausage casings unless you wear assistance hose stretched from your own toes your chin?

Perform they know very well what really serious work my bra has been doing? Carry out they understand these maternity jeans are taken up to my personal tits? PROBABLY NOT. She knows about stretchmarks! And there I was at Scofflaw, my personal favorite put on planet, using my proper tit getting stabbed by an exposed underwire waiting for someone who may likely notice that reality within thirty mere seconds of getting rid of her coat.

Oh, correct.

perform I assist the lady simply take her coating off?

If this rains afterwards, should I place mine over a puddle? Which starts the doorway? Do I take the lady seat out? Should I walk-on the exterior associated with the pavement? I’m meant to order on her behalf, yes?

Can it be poor that i did not ask the woman father’s authorization after she welcomed myself away?


Often it’s challenging understand if you are on a night out together with a dude, too. After all, the advancement of this ladydate blossomed therefore naturally that I practically didn’t have for you personally to have a nervous malfunction about any of it. I happened to be cool as a cucumber, woman. Um, excepting the complete is-this-or-isn’t-this-why-have-we-only-discussed-the-parameters-of-this-in-a-joking-way-because-that-is-confusing part. Guys are so shameless oftentimes that’s all’s very very easy to figure it. If a dude states,

“Sam bro, wanna get some beers and eat a whole bison as you’re watching the NCAA championships?”

I am aware it isn’t a drilling big date. As well as when it’s “Hey Sam, let’s go to [enter name of mildly upscale bistro] on 2023 while [pushing the breasts up and dressed in the one thing you have from Bloomingdale’s] and attend the [dimly lit enchanting environment] and feed one another [expensive thumb food that can be eaten sexily] although we also [coo at each and every additional]” i could usually tell when he starts revealing me personally his texts from haphazard women that

even though they are spending this is not a motherfucking go out, either.

But there are those rare occasions whenever homeboy scrubbed their testicle and sprayed good cologne on his chest in which he sits counting the movie stars during my eyes in nicest restaurant a CTA coach motorist are able to afford and also in my personal mind i am mostly, “hold off a minute…should we n’t have worn plastic mom shoes for this?!” and in case he hasn’t referenced their knob or produced declarations on the account by the end on the meal, i am aware he is only trying to fulfill among my personal hot buddies. But women can be slight.


nd many of us aren’t just gonna offer all of our vaginas with the soup course.

(VAGINA SOUP, YUM.) Therefore here’s what i was cooperating with:

+ hot lady thinks i am amusing (TIME)

+ Meshell Ndegeocello (day)

+ her pal concerned the pregame products part (maybe not a date)

+ like an asshole I inquired when it was actually a date and had gotten a reply which was like “meh” (maybe not a date)

+ we spent an hour or so on cellphone the other day (go out)

+ I texted this lady from the bathroom during the club while I happened to be shitting and it also failed to strange the lady out (perhaps not date-like, but that’s my drilling failing because i am gross)

+ i did not get intoxicated (big date, since if it ain’t I do not care about not looking like an alcoholic)

+ she cried over the past track (time? additionally, easily ‘m going to screw women i need to purchase a lot more kleenex)

I don’t know, man. Imma only roll along with it.


ake their a big macaroni Hostess cupcake pizza pie loaf and wash the woman soccer cleats within the sink to discover what takes place.

I am therefore motherfucking exhausted. And I’m generally happy to end up being around anybody magnificent, whether i must learn how to utilize a dental dam or otherwise not. Simply therefore we’re obvious, tho: this simply means we’re in a relationship now, appropriate? Great, because i recently smashed my personal goddamned rental.

Often Samantha Irby really wants to have sex with dudes. Other days, Samantha Irby desires to have sex with females. She actually is at this time wanting to catch-up from the lady side of things. Look for much more about her on
