If a girl likes Sappho's poetry does it mean she's gay?

    So, I like this girl. I have a hunch that she might like me back.

    I don't want to do anything in case I'm wrong about her sexuality but..
    her twitter is full of retweets of Sappho's poetry, and only ones concerning love between females. I see this as a clear sign, in combination with her short nails and apparent flirting with me but, I need confirmation. Help!

    I know that liking lesbian media alone doesn't mean you're gay, but obsession with Sappho stuff and the flirting....yeah, could be a deeper sign.

    If you aren't going to try, you will never find out. Good luck!

    I agree. There's no direct correlation between liking Sappho's poetry and being gay - I can imagine people of other sexualities being interested in it as well (especially heterosexual guys). But there's a chance that this particular girl might be a lesbian, or at least bisexual, since it's not something very recurrent among heterosexual girls, for obvious reasons.

    That and the other signs you've noticed (short nails and and retweets concerning love between two women) make a good case for a woman who has at least some degree of interest in other women.

    So, I wouldn't classify her as a lesbian purely on her interests, but there's a very good chance she might be one (or bisexual).

    Maybe. With the nail thing, I remember reading that it's a surefire sign if the female has both nails on her index and middle finger short. If all of her fingernails are short, it could just as easily mean that she prefers to keep her nails short. However, she is flirting with you. She must be attracted to women to some extent at least. Ask her if you're still unsure.

    Perhaps, you could try dropping hints instead?

    Hmmm I see. Thank you so much for the insight. I suppose, I'll have to do some more investigating!
