Whether you are thinking of trying out online dating for the first time, or returning to the dating scene after a long break, it can seem like a daunting proposition.

That’s why, before you start creating your profile on a site like match.com, it’s always useful to get some lesbian dating advice first.

You probably have many questions, perhaps also some fears and dilemmas. However, you’ll be happy to know that you’re not alone. Even celebrities and our favorite characters on TV go through the same issues as you. As a result, some of them have discovered some great philosophies and strategies for love and dating.

So here - talking from experience - from some of our favorite women, dating advice that you can benefit from too.

Ellen DeGeneres

Comedian and television host, Ellen DeGeneres is somewhat of an expert about going out on a lesbian date. She came out as being gay in 1997 and had a couple of partners before marrying Portia de Rossi in 2008.

Her best advice, while simple, is somewhat profound.

“Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are.”

So here - talking from experience - from some of our favorite women, dating advice that you can benefit from too.

Orange Is The New Black

Some of the fictional characters in our best-loved shows also have some valuable lesbian dating advice to give us.

Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” from Orange Is The New Black summed up succinctly the attitude you need to adopt before finding love again:

“This year I’m loving someone who deserves me. Me”

This follows on beautifully from Ellen’s advice, and underlines how important it is to have self-respect and love yourself first before embarking on a new relationship.

Moreover, it emphasizes that a true relationship and a strong partner do not try to change anything about you; on the contrary, they are willing to fall in love and accept you for who you are.

Know that you deserve love and have a lot to give to the right person.

It’s also so important not to enter into a relationship or hang on to one just for the sake of it. As Alex reminds us, sometimes we’ll stay in a relationship because we’re terrified of the alternative:

However, if someone doesn’t give you the love and respect you deserve, sometimes you need to say goodbye. While being single again can be a scary prospect, it also gives you time to get to know yourself once again and build up confidence. Don’t worry, though, about being on your own for too long. When you’re ready to find love again, you’ll find plenty of online potential lesbian dates on Zoosk.

Of course, one of the hardest parts of a breakup is how to broach the subject. So here’s some great words from Tina who couldn’t have said it better:

“I really enjoy the time we've spent together, but it is obvious to me that we are in different places in our lives and we want different things out of a relationship, and I respect myself too much to let you continue to treat me this way … And I'm no longer willing to waste my valuable time on you.”

The Fosters

Knowing what to say, how to say and when to say it is one of the most vital aspects of any relationship. As Lena Foster reminds us:

Whether you want to tell your partner how much you care for them, or make them understand what it is they said that is upsetting you. Communication between you and your partner is the key to a successful relationship. Don’t expect them to be able to guess how you’re feeling. Be transparent with them about what troubles you, what concerns you, out of the thought that even if it’s hard to say, it’s for the sake of your relationship. If you don’t tell them, they won’t know.

Grey’s Anatomy

“I was raised to be a good man in the storm. Raised to love my country, love my family, protect the things I love. When my father, Colonel Daniel Robbins of the United States Marine Corps, heard that I was a lesbian, he said he only had one question. I was prepared for, ‘How fast can you get the hell out of my house?’ But instead it was. ‘Are you still who I raised you to be?’ My father believed in country the way you believe in god. And my father is not a man who bends, but he bent for me because I'm his daughter. I'm a good man in a storm.“ - Arizona Robins

Sometimes opening up to another person can be the hardest thing to do. You don’t know how they are going to respond. However, as Arizona from Grey’s Anatomy shows us: don’t be so quick to judge someone. They may surprise you with their love and acceptance and their will to work everything out.

So be brave. Open up your heart to others, and don’t be afraid to communicate your feelings.

Armed with all that sound advice, you’re now ready for some lesbian dating. So sign up to BBPeopleMeet to find the love of your life!
