Cindy Zelman shows in this collection of essays, filled with deep, deep insight and a great dollop of humor, that the dating scene for lesbians is transversed much the same way it is for those of us who are straight: at times frustratingly, at times humorously and at times lonely. It is a great, wise and wonderful collection that could be read, and should embraced, to be read, by all.

How can I feel sad after reading something so funny? Zelman takes you on a relationship journey that brings you up and then down again, just like real life. Honest, funny, real, raw. Loved this book of stories. My only complaint is that it should have been longer--much longer.
