I’ve been divorced for just a few months, separated for almost a year. I’ve considered myself a straight woman, always only interested in men. I think I might be attracted to a woman in my yoga class. We often get coffee after class, laugh and have fun being together. I think about her all the time, and it lights me up inside. I’ve also thought about kissing her. She let me know early on that she was a lesbian and I let her know I was straight. Now, I think I may be bisexual. She has never made a romantic or sexual overture towards me. Should I tell her I am developing feelings for her?
– Should I Share My Romantic Feelings
Dear Should I Share My Romantic Feelings:
It sounds like you’ve spent some time thinking about this. Don’t worry about labels or drawing conclusions about your new feelings. It sounds like you are very attracted to this woman and that you enjoy each other’s company. Don’t put so much pressure on the relationship. I would suggest being honest with her. Share the feelings you are having with her. Ask her what she thinks. If she seems to be interested in having more, and you want to explore your feelings, take it slow as you navigate your way through your feelings and attraction – just as you would if she were a man.
Enjoy this time of discovery and let it unfold naturally. I wish you the best!
