Lilly Singh Made This Rookie Mistake While Flirting With Girls on Apps

When you come out at 30, "the whole dynamic has changed," she said.

Lily Singh is opening up about the learning curve that comes with realizing you’re bisexual.

The comedian and YouTuber came out publicly as bisexual back in 2019, and that was simply that. She’s remained extremely private about her dating life in the years since, but in a recent conversation with Vogue India, she had a few things to say about how it’s all been going.

“The first time I messaged a girl on a dating app, I called her sis,” she admitted.” I literally had to stop and chastise myself and be like ‘No. Bad.’”

On the whole, Singh is very interested in keeping the line between friendship and romance, or potential romance, specifically noting that she doesn’t want to “get dressed, drink and dance with [someone I could potentially date] the way I do with my female friends. I don’t want to do my eyeliner in the mirror with them; it makes me want to die.”

Anyone who has gone from having girls as friends to having an interest in them, generally speaking, as more than friends, can relate to Singh’s point that “the whole dynamic has changed,” and she says she’s still working on learning how to flirt with women on and off the apps.

The former late-night host’s candidness about the difficulties of coming out at 30 also took a more existential turn, and one that anyone else in the same boat might find familiar.

“What really scared me was facing this new truth at the age of 30,” she said. “When you’re younger, they tell you that by 30, you’ll be married, have kids and have everything figured out. For me to be revealing this big truth about myself at the age of 30 was quite tough because it made me feel like I was falling behind in life.”

But as the saying goes, better late than never!
