1. In the beginning, figuring out dating and sex stuff can get a bit weird.
2. You seem to be asked an uncomfortable number of questions about your sex life.
3. Sometimes, your Shark Weeks don't quite match up, and you have to wait forever until sexytimes.
4. If you ever injure your wrist/hand/fingers, you're screwed for a while.
5. That guy at the bar finds out that your girlfriend is your girlfriend and just starts hitting on both of you.
6. You inexplicably become your friends' go-to sex toy expert.
7. People have very specific ideas about what you should wear.
8. People make weird lesbian references at you, and you feel bad when you don't understand them.
9. Flirting can be like ramming your head against a very clueless, and often very straight wall. Repeatedly.
10. "So, who's the guy?"
11. It's hard to find a movie with a main character who's gay but doesn't die/go insane/kill everyone.
12. Get a fancy manicure at your own peril.
But honestly, there's no one I'd rather be but me.
