Being A Lesbian In Your Twenties Vs Being A Lesbian In Your Thirties

"Want to take another nap and then rewatch Bound?"

Sex in your twenties

Instagram: @andreafrisk

It's frequent, fast, fun, confusing, and weirdly experimental. Everyone finds out that scissoring isn't really a thing at some point, and that's usually in your twenties.

It's comfortable, natural, toe-curlingly good, and usually takes place at the weekend, just before a trip to a farmers market.

Nights out in your twenties

"OMG, they're doing 12-drink Tuesday down at Planet Gayface!" *You and all your friends sprint there immediately*

Nights out in your thirties

After a five-week-long group chat trying to set a date, you hit the club. Well, bars. Well, a bar: ideally one that sells good beer and pizza, and isn't too loud.

Dating in your twenties

One word: Tinder. Wait, no, two words: straight girls. Wait, no, three words: dumped by text.

Dating in your thirties

You know exactly what you want (i.e. none of your ex-girlfriends, thanks), which makes it easier to see the real deal when it comes along.

Holidays in your twenties

You drink all day, get sunburned, and have at least one pissed, regrettable sexual encounter with someone you then have to see every day until you go home.

Holidays in your thirties

You want something a bit more classy, like that holiday they went on in the episode of The L Word that was basically an hour-long advert for Olivia Cruises.

Lesbian friends in your twenties

Instagram: @misguidedghost95

You've had sex with them, or you want to have sex with them, or they want to have sex with you. And that's fine.

"LOL, remember that time we had sex 10 years ago?" "Yes. How are your kids?"

Long-term relationships in your twenties

Instagram: @angelique

"Want to get matching tattoos, hold hands in public, totally neglect all our friends, go to gay bars just to make out, and Instagram everything we do?"

Pride in your twenties

Instagram: @ria_silver_lining_

It's all about marching, being proud, your squad, getting drunk in the street, and making out with random people.

Pride in your thirties

It's all about marching, being proud, your girlfriend, and showing off how well you can decorate your dog.

Kids in your twenties

It doesn't even bear thinking about: You're far too busy looking after all the baby dykes you know.

Kids in your thirties

Instagram: @mrs_muir23

Even if you're not 100% sure you want kids, you've browsed sperm donors when drunk at least once and imagined what it would be like to have an astronaut's baby.

Clothes in your twenties

They're a vital part of your self-expression and identity. It's also important that they're very easy to take off during drunken hookups.

Clothes in your thirties

It's less about self-expression and more about knowing exactly which clothes hide your love handles, and then wearing them all the time.

Sunday afternoons in your twenties

Instagram: @musicnotesanddreamboats

Usually spent crying because you're so hungover, or being sick, or continuing to have sex with the girl you brought home last night, or all three.

Sunday afternoons in your thirties

Usually spent crying because you're so hungover, and for some reason you're also in Ikea having an argument about sofas with your wife.

Relationship goals in your twenties

Instagram: @lesbian

"I need a fun, outgoing girlfriend who looks exactly like the lovechild of Ruby Rose and Halsey and who also likes wrestling in very small pants."

Relationship goals in your thirties

Instagram: @portiaderossi

"I need a girlfriend who is sane and likes Netflix."
