Fauxmance or Marriage Of Convenience: Two women pretend to be married or in a relationship so that they can attain something they couldn’t without the relationship and then they realise that they are actually madly in love with one another.
Opposites Attract: Sometimes women who are complete opposites in personality, status and/or beliefs can complement one another and ultimately become a perfect match as they compensate for the other.
Second Chance: They broke up a long time ago and meet up again only to realise that the chemistry has never gone away.
Toaster Oven: This is an amusing take on the old school saying that a lesbian gets a toaster oven for “converting” a straight woman to lesbianism. Of course we know this is not usually the case, but we love the ridiculousness and celebrate it. Basically this trope comes about when a woman realises she is lesbian or bisexual after falling for another woman.
