Whether your entire dating life has been in lesbian relationships or you are new to the game, one thing that is abundantly clear is that lesbian couples have this special dynamic that you won’t find in non-lesbian relationships. Emotions especially play a critical role. To add on, while some obstacles require a steep learning curve, once developed, a lesbian relationship can be one of the most fulfilling experiences to witness.
Let us witness these adorable lesbian couple stories that inspire the romantic in you…
Alithea Castillo and Kim Geronimo (The Street Sensei)
View this post on Instagram
#Pride is anywhere with you, @thestreetsensei. May it be us marching on the streets of NYC, up on a 30ft Times Square billboard, or in our little space we call home in Queens; I don’t care where it is as long as I get to spend it with you by my side. The past year was rough for us but it made me realize how far we’ve come and grown since. So, thank you for this beautifully flawed gay ass relationship we get to proudly bask in everyday. 🖤 — Anyways, happy pride from these two queer asian immigrants who clearly have a lot of time during quarantine & also as a reminder that pride doesn’t end in june, it’s year-round. 😚 #loveislove #pridemonth #lovewins
Their story started in New York. They were Instagram friends before they dated. They followed each other because their then hairdresser asked Alithea if she knew of this girl Kim who goes by “The Street Sensei”. To this, she casually said, “Oh yeah, I know of her work. I think she’s really good.” Their cupid hairdresser then skewed and mentioned to Kim on a later appointment of theirs that there’s this cute Filipina who has a crush on her. Kim then checked Alithea out on Instagram and said in verbatim, “She’s really cute.. but I don’t know if she goes for tomboys.” And She did. But Kim didn’t know that.
So, they followed each other back in 2017 but as acquaintances. Fast forward to 2018, they met a couple of times because of mutual friends but they never really grew close up until Alithea’s ex broke up with her. Kim, who lived 13 blocks away, became the person who consoled Alithea every day. Kim made her smile, made her eat (a lot), and made her realize she deserved better. It took both of them a few months before they realized how right they were for each other.
Who knew Instagram and a hairdresser(who they still visit) could make this awesome match?
Sydney and Brit from The Sharon Moms
Sydney met Brit in high school. For them, there was no attraction or love at first sight. Further, as per Sydney, she wasn’t even into women at that time. Eventually, the duo became friends in their senior year. To add on they traveled to Israel together on their gap year program, and both ending up at the same college. After spending some time together, curiosity struck. That’s all it took. Sparks flew and they started dating. It was right then that they knew that this was it — They’d be each other’s last first kiss. They eventually adopted a dog and started a company. To this day, they document their married life, with their baby girl on their Instagram handle.
YouTube stars Bria and Chrissy
Bria and Chrissy have a love story for the ages. They met on Chrissy’s first night as a self-proclaimed lesbian in 2011, and they were into each other instantly. They finally tied the knot in 2018. With over 800,000 subscribers, they’re some of the most popular lesbian YouTube channels. They make their own music videos, informative and fun videos. You can watch their journey on their exclusive YouTube Channel.
“We do a lot of ridiculous videos, but we want our viewers to also see how serious and passionate we are in our hearts. Bria is my heaven and our love is very genuine and true.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
It was 2000 when the couple first met at a party, and it was love at first sight for De Rossi. However, it took her over three years to tell DeGeneres how she felt because she wasn’t out as a gay woman. The pair reconnected in 2004 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles for VH1’s Big in ’04 Awards, according to The Advocate. In 2008, the Supreme Court of California made it possible for same-sex couples to get married. Soon after, de Rossi and DeGeneres were officially married in an intimate wedding ceremony.
“I just walked over to say hello to her, and I couldn’t believe it, but she turned around and it was like an arrow was shot through my heart. I felt weak at the knees and I was overwhelmed with how I felt, but then it took me about 10 months to get the courage up to actually do anything about it.”
– De Rossi recalled on The Oprah Winfrey Show

“Love knows no race. Interracial couples are a sign of beauty.” 👩🏽🤝👩🏻 Over the past 2 weeks I (Tash) have fallen even deeper in love with Marthe. 👩🏽🤝👩🏻 As we all know, it has been and still is a very raw and emotional time for many. As we work to deconstruct systems that have been in place for 100’s of years. Systems that have formed people’s experiences, beliefs and very identities. 👩🏽🤝👩🏻 No one said this was ever going to be easy, but I think many underestimated just how hard it would be. 👩🏽🤝👩🏻 I have continuously struggled on a day to day dealing with all the information and history that is being brought to light. However, Marthe has been by my side, supporting me every step of the way. 👩🏽🤝👩🏻 She has given me space, she has stepped aside and allowed me to go on this journey without jealously or question. 👩🏽🤝👩🏻 This is a Thank You! Thank You for being Everything I could of asked for and so much more. . . . . . #blacklivesmatter #interracialcouple #blm #pride #pridemonth #pride2020 #blackpride #femmecouple #loveislove
This couple met in January 2019 whilst on a surf retreat in Bali. It was a returning visit for Tash, but it was Marthe’s first time to the island. Coincidentally they arrived on the same day, just a few hours apart. Tash was in the middle of a break up at the time and wasn’t so open to love, but potentially some holiday fun. On the other hand, Marthe was intending to start the year enjoying her newfound freedom after ending a casual relationship. However, it didn’t take them long to decide that they had fallen head over heels. There was some tension in the beginning but after spending 5 days together in Nusa Penida, they both knew that we had found ‘The One’.

Roxanne and Maartje from Once Upon A Journey
The duo met while making popcorn, cleaning screening rooms, checking tickets, and washing IMAX 3D classes. Maartje had already worked at the cinema for half a year and she saw Roxanne as the enemy at first. However, a trip to Six Flags during Halloween changed everything. They were forced to bond since the common friend who invited us didn’t show up. They became friends who partied and dated other people. At some point, Maartje started exploring her sexuality and dating girls. While she dated a girl Roxanne also started realizing that she herself might be into girls. Gradually, they both developed feelings for each other. What made their relationship stronger was when Maartje went to the States to study. Their long-distance relationship made them more sure of their love for each other. You can follow their incredible story on their Instagram Handle.
