    The Time I Hit Rock-Bottom In My Lesbian Dating Life

    The Time I Hit Rock-Bottom In My Lesbian Dating Life

    Jordana Michelle shares the story about the time she hit rock-bottom in lesbian dating and what she did to bounce back.



    Hitting rock-bottom in dating…



    Have you ever hit rock-bottom?

    The good thing about hitting rock-bottom is that, even though you feel wretched, life always gets better from there. (Because that’s the definition of “rock bottom”).

    And in this episode of Women Wanting Women I talk about the absolute low-point in my dating life and the important lesson I learned that allowed me to turn it around powerfully for myself.

    During the episode I share:



    * The story of getting rejected during my worst dry spell…

    * The reason my mentor called me out for a mistake I didn’t know I was making…

    * The lifechanging advice that transformed the way I approached dating and the way women responded to me… AND

    * The practical steps anyone can take right now to make the same changes I did, even if you’re currently at rock-bottom…

    The Most Embarrassing Thing I Ever Did In The Lesbian Scene

    Jordana Michelle tells the story of the most socially awkward and embarrassing thing she ever did at a lesbian event.



    There’s nothing worse than doing something socially embarrassing.



    In my case, the most embarrassing thing I ever did happened at a lesbian event in around 2012.

    * A story so embarrassing that I ran away screaming when it happened…

    * Some personal details about my friendship with my ex…

    * The main reasons why my partner isn’t jealous of my ex, and why I’m not jealous of the ex she’s still close to…

    * The way my partner’s ex helped our relationship get started… AND

    * My advice for women who start dating someone who is still close with an ex…



    And if you want to check out the YouTube videos I made on this topic, this one talks about how exes can sometimes feel like family and this one that talks about red flags to look out for if your partner has a toxic relationship with an ex.
