Our expert says:
More people than most folks realize, are capable of being turned on by both homosexual and heterosexual fantasies. I'm not at all sure that your estimate is accurate about a "lot" of older women "turning" to lesbianism. It may be that quite a number of women are basically bisexual and suppress or ignore that aspect of themselves until they are older, perhaps more confident and secure, and then explore it. And in fantasies, perhaps relations with women seem more safe and simple, rather than more complex relationships with men.
As you are a single mother, it sounds as though you have perhaps not experienced a long-lasting and happy relationship with a man, so perhaps that slightly colours the potential of such fantasies to be more rapidly arousing.
