No! I’m not going to do that again!’ But love has a way of coming and the relationship that I’m actually in now, she’s been my best friend for 10 years. Believe me, I wasn’t going to go out and look for it, it found its way into my home. I’m very happy. Yes, I am ready to try my hand at love again." 05 of 14 Love Quote from Jane Lynch about Lara Embry Jane Lynch said about her then wife Lara Embry and their life together: "I love it! I always wanted to have a partner. I always wanted to have someone to walk through life with, and I really have not had that before. We spend all day together and we make a home together very well. We all watch the show. My daughter loves it, so the three of us watch it together." 06 of 14 Rosie O'Donnell Love Quote Rosie O'Donnell was quoted in US magazine about her girlfriend Michelle Rounds: "She's so unbelievably connected and refined.

If she were a man, would I be in love with her? I don't know. We shop and cook and raise children--we both pitch in." 08 of 14 Kate Clinton Love Quote about Urvashi Vaid Kate Clinton on humor in the bedroom: "You need to let moments of laughter and light into bed—if there’s no room for that, maybe you shouldn’t be there. Melt. Let yourself get silly. One time Urvashi put on some Carole King, and it was the wrong music for sex. It’s lovely, of course, but all I wanted to do was sing along! We got hysterical about it." 09 of 14 Nikki Weiss from The Real L Word About Jill Goldstein Nikki Weiss and Jill Goldstein were a couple on the first season of The Real L Word.

Trust me, Jill and I take our union very seriously. We will be married in our hearts in front of our family and friends, but MOST IMPORTANTLY for us, we will be recognized by the Jewish religion, as married, signing a Ketubah and being honored by Jewish law." 10 of 14 Cathy DeBuono Love Quote about Jill Bennett Cathy DeBuono said about falling in love with Jill Bennett: "I fell in love with her sense of self, her sense of humor and her straightforwardness. It wasn’t until after I got bit by those bugs, so to speak, that I began to get drawn to her physical beauty, which of course is obvious! But I didn't care until after we started making each other laugh on a daily basis." 11 of 14 Amber Heard on Tasya van Ree Brian To/FilmMagic/Getty Images Actress Amber Heard was quoted in AfterEllen.com about her girlfriend Tasya van Ree.

In the end, my mom said, ‘It’s better to use a sperm donor.’” 13 of 14 Brandi Carlile Brandi Carlile married her longtime girlfriend Catherine Shepherd on September 15, 2012, in Massachusetts.
