It doesn't matter who you date, if you're gay or straight, there will always be one person in the couple who makes mincemeat of romance. You can usually tell who it is when you look through social media feeds. One person is all hearts and flowers, the other is farts and sex jokes — one considers Valentine's Day the most important holiday the year, the other just can't wait for the discount chocolate. But it works, because they balance each other. You know, that whole opposites attract thing. Turns out, there is some truth to that age-old adage after all.
Twitter user @lildellapenna made it clear that this is not a dynamic that falls cleanly along the man/woman binary. Females can be anti-romance too! She's in a relationship with another woman, but they clearly have different perspectives on appropriate posts for friends and family. And by different we mean, on two completely different planets.

Here's @lildellapenna's, which is captioned with the very lovely words: "All the pretty girls in this world but I'm in this space with you." Aw.
Here's her girlfriend's post. Same image, but the caption reads, "Rock, paper..."

Not everyone got it right away, don't feel bad.
And some people are still in denial:
But my bet is that it's definitely about scissoring:
People who get it absolutely love it:
And the two women seem fine with the differences in their expression of love:
