Lesbian Dating Tips

The Best San Jose Lesbian Bars & Nightclubs Local women LOVE

The rumors are true! Your local lesbian dating scene has seen better days. But it isn't only San Jose lesbian dating spots that are biting the dust. Across the USA, generally, the queer community is noting the decline of girls' bars and inclusive spaces for women. All the hard work that's been done to kick marginalization to the curb seems to have had an all-or-nothing impact in some states, as lesbians and their friends now expected to socialize in straight bars and clubs.

In 2009, San Jose said its sad goodbyes to Club Savoy, a veteran of the South Bay scene of 30 plus years. A sign of things to come, dedicated lesbian venues have swiftly transformed into party nights, leaving women wondering where to meet a lesbian in San Jose at all! With the additional complications and constraints caused by Covid-19, the new normal is to meet single lesbians online. Match with prospective partners onscreen and then hit up our list of hook up options.
