A Surprise Encounter (Rebound Gal)
It’s #SexualityWeek here at 30 Dates, and Rebound Gal has a rather surprising, but not uncommon revelation …
Thanks for your honesty Rebound 🙂 As Gina Yashere mentioned in her recent interview – sexuality can be a sliding scale at different points in your life.

Sexuality is a tricky one for me. Although I’ve never had a relationship with a woman, I have never really known what camp I’m in.
I find girls and boys equally entrancing. However, I have never gone further than first base with a girl. I don’t know why. I know my parents wouldn’t disapprove. I know my friends wouldn’t either. It’s a weird one.
I recently met a girl at a festival, I don’t know what it was, but there was an instant attraction! We kept bumping in to each other throughout the day, exchanging hugs and laughs.
Now I will admit I was drinking, but I couldn’t help but think there was some attraction there on her part too.
We danced, and then during a remix of Clean Bandit’s ‘Rather Be’ we kissed.
It was good. We chatted for a few more minutes. I went to find my friend, saying I’d be back soon.
It was then things headed south. My friend was being naughty and got removed from the festival. Although I could’ve stayed, I decided to stay loyal to my friend and get chucked out with her!!
This meant that I didn’t even say goodbye to Festival Girl, let alone get her number! I have spent the last week wondering what would or could have happened if I’d stayed.
All I know is it doesn’t have to be a man that will make me happy. And I have no shame in that whatsoever.
This is pretty much the first time I have really put this out there. It feels weird to actually say it, but I know it’s right.
Who knew 30 would be the year I’d finally stand up and be true to who I really am!
I was married to a man for 20 years. Although I’d never had another encounter with a woman, I knew -beyond a doubt – that I was a lesbian (although I did work into that knowledge over the years – I think I’m bi-curious, I’m pretty sure I’m bi, holy shiz, I’m a lesbian!!). I’m now happily married to a woman and will never look back; they’re a lot to be said for living authentically!
Thanks for your comment Heather – sorry for the delay replying. Hope you had a lovely New Year!
