Take it from me: it’s easier to fix this problem before it starts if you can.How do you keep the Green Eyed Monster out of your relationship? You could lie to your girlfriend about something as innocent as forgetting to take out the trash and suddenly see your relationship spin out of control.It can be related to something timely or trending (I once messaged all my matches to ask their opinion on The Dress—you know the one), or it can just be something you're curious about.
Women are emotional (and hopelessly insecure) creatures. and practically every other woman – gay, straight, or bi – that I’ve ever encountered. And we tend to shack up before we’ve really defined our relationships or given them a chance to take form.
Regardless, the issue of jealousy seems to pop up like crazy in lesbian relationships, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that we’re all… Think about it: we tend to be friends with our exes. It’s no wonder we have issues with getting a little green.
Sometimes it feels like the only thing you can do to start a conversation is to say hello, as boring as it may be. Tinder has a built in Giphy search keyboard that allows you to easily send GIFs based on different keywords.
Search for keywords like "hi" or "waving" and find one that fits your personality and what you want to convey. GIFs are my go-to way to start a conversation, and most of the time, it works—it's especially fun when your match responds with one too, and you get to get a sense of each other's sense of humor.
If you can find something in common or something that you think is interesting, ask them about it!
