This week, a woman wondering whether she’s really queer and ready to start dating: 44, single, Sag Harbor.


9:00 a.m. I’m isolating at my country house out east, sharing my kids with my ex-husband who is also out here. The biggest news in my life is that I’m officially identifying as a queer woman. I’ve been “straight” for 44 years and now seems like the perfect time to try and date women — at least online.

11:30 a.m. On a socially distanced walk with one of my best friends and I explain everything to her: I’ve been divorced three years. It’s genuinely amicable. I got very busy post-divorce trying to raise my young kids and nurture my growing career (I run a popular wellness website). I’ve had zero interest in meeting, dating, or fucking men. Zero. So I examined that. I am done with men. Truly, done. But I’m still a sexual person and still interested in romance, so, what now? Women. Mind you, I have never so much as kissed a woman. But I’m wildly turned on by the idea of being in a lesbian relationship. I have crazy fantasies about it. Meeting, sleeping with, and falling in love with a woman is my new obsession. My friend thinks it’s great. All my married, straight friends envy this decision.
