And if so, when, where, how, and most obviously why? Other post-breakup scenarios have less obvious answers. Deciding how to continue forward, together or separately, after a relationship dissolves can be tricky for anyone.
It was April That had never happened to me before. So, very quickly and intensely, we were both hooked.
I recently shared my experiences being an out lesbian in a conservative, religious, Jamaican family. I came out at nineteen and have had three serious relationships in those nine years as well as my fair share of dating disasters.

Break ups are hard. Most people who go through a significant break up, deal with it similar to a death, the loss of someone you love, who you thought you would have for the rest of your life.

Be in love. Think that you invented love because surely no one has ever — ever — felt like this before. Your bodies fit together so well.
Whether you have left your partner, or she has left you, surviving a lesbian break-up is hard. Sometimes it may feel like you may never recover from the break-up. But you will.

But when I had my first girl-on-girl heartbreak the clouds broke open, and suddenly, I totally understood the magnitude of a shattered heart.
