To love a woman is to know you share an understanding. I was thinking about the differences between being in love with a man vs a woman. The fact that so many men both hate and desire women simultaneously is really fucking with my head. I cannot fathom such a mix of emotions. To love a woman is to know what kind of love she is capable of. I have more in common with a woman across the globe from a different culture and religion than I do with men who were born and raised in the same city as me. To love a woman is a sigh of relief, to know your partner in a way that you know yourself. What do you love about loving women?

I absolutely adore everything about women.

I adore women's minds, the humour that women can share with one another, despite age gaps or cultural differences. I love calm feeling I get when I'm alone with a woman who is a new friend, or a new lover. Even if I don't know her fully yet, I feel relaxed. This is such a juxtaposition to how I've felt around men, even men I know very well.

I love that women tend to just get on with it. I have been in the centre of absolute shitstorms at work, in my personal life, family problems, whatever. Every time, the women get on with it, whilst the men fall to pieces (running away, self harm, addiction, violent behaviour, adultery). There is a stoicism to women that women SO rarely get credit for, and it is the best feeling.

I can rely on the women in my life, and I've always been able to. I love that so many women I have been with or flirted with have had a strange sort of purity of intention - they genuinely want to make me smile, or laugh, or make my day with a kind gesture. It's not about getting sex or boosting their ego.

Although speaking of sex (am I allowed to?).. my God, that's one of the best things about being a lesbian!

I also adore the art that women produce. I was reading the Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter recently, and there is no chance that could ever have been written by a man, or anything in a similar vein. It is just so female and so rich.

Sorry for the rambling, just some of my thoughts!

Don't apologize! I asked because I want to know! :-) Yes, that relaxation and not having your guard up constantly is such a nice feeling. Btw I feel you on the coworker thing, I recently changed careers and didn't even think about what it would be like to work with mostly women (yay laboratory!). It's so true, we have the ability to put our nose to the grindstone that I haven't seen reflected by male coworkers.

It’s all in the Indigo Girls cover of Romeo & Juliet.

I’m not sure existence would be worth enduring without love of women. Woman is the perfect expression of humanity. When people speak of the virtues of human nature they seem to me to be describing women only. The finest thing about loving women is that it reinforces love of self. If I love women I must love myself as well, since I am a woman.

If I feel I have a flaw I ask myself if I would find it charming on another woman and the answer is usually yes.

I see a woman as an incredibly seductive whole, she’s more than even a whole, a woman has immanence unlike any other being.

My Juliet is still out there. I used to have a scene with her.

I love your point about flaws :-) and the fact that everything good about humanity is female. I never thought about that before but I have some thinking to do now.
