What signs should you look out for if you think you might be a lesbian? Can you perform any test to confirm your suspicion? If you have any questions about your sexual orientation, some early signs of lesbianism are listed below. This is not an accurate test but you might be a lesbian if you experience more than three of the listed signs.

Early Signs of Lesbianism


Your TV Crushes Are Women

You might be a lesbian if you have crushes on female TV celebrities including fictitious characters. You probably hope to act alongside your crushes or have their pictures on the walls or ceiling of your room. For instance, you have admired Spinelli in Recess or have pictures of Xena: Warrior Princess in your room.


Wear Men’s Clothes

If your teenage sense of style included camouflage shorts, cargo pants, and other men’s pants, you may be a lesbian. You enjoy wearing plaid button downs and a comfortable pair of Birkenstocks. Your parents may have expressed their concerns about your choice of outfits. Obsession with men’s clothes may make you a lesbian or a sign that you are already one.


Take to a Female Teacher

Did you spend much time talking to a female teacher and helping her cleaning the blackboard? Did you constantly compliment her perfume and try to get her to invite you to her pool? Fantasies of a romantic moment with your favorite female teacher and trying to seduce her are signs that you might be a lesbian. You fantasize having the same moment in a pool like Denise Richards and Neve Campbell in the film Wild Things.


Participate In Lesbian Sports

It is said that the sports associated with lesbianism include tennis, softball, basketball, and golf. Lesbians are attracted to girls in shorts and their grunts during the sports.


Prefer Female Musicians

One of the early signs of lesbianism is listening to female musicians all the time while your age mates are obsessed with male musicians. You may find yourself comparing two female artists and picking a favorite based on their looks and their voices. While your teenage friends were obsessed with Backstreets Boys, you were listening to Christina, Britney, or Sarah McLaughlin. You just cannot get over Britney’s beautiful look.


Experiment and Enjoy Girl Sex

Many girls try girl sex especially in groups of friends. Lesbians continue experimenting and eventually enjoy girl sex with someone close to them. It may be frightening at first but it gets better with time as a girl develops courage to come out of the closet.


Think About a Girl While on a Date with a Guy

You may be a lesbian if you think of your best female friend throughout a date with a guy. You cannot wait to call her and hear about her day or listen to her voice. Consider dating her instead of planning another date with a guy.


You Notice Girls Everywhere

You see girls first before noticing the men in town or in a mall. You do this without thinking about it.


Your Closest Friends Are Women

You enjoy friendship, fun activities, support, and conversations with women or girls. Apart from a few gay and sensitive men, all your good friends are women.


You Are Unsure About Your Sexuality

You have questioned if you are a lesbian or bisexual. Asking questions about being a lesbian is one of the early signs of lesbianism.
