Syra Johal and Grace Goddard always considered themselves to be straight, until they started using dating app Tinder.
It was only when one of Syra's friends changed here preferences to "likes men and women" as a joke that she got to chatting with bar worker Grace and realised a huge amount of sexual chemistry.
The 22-year-old Cardiff Met student joined Tinder after coming out of a three year relationship, but didn't find any potential suitors attractive until a few women started to pop up.
"I admit I was surprised at how excited I was when Grace first messaged me," she said.
"I’d never thought of girls that way before. I’d always had boyfriends so didn’t expect to feel the way I did when chatting to her.
"Once we met and realised how much we fancied each other, we’d got over the whole girl-lesbian-bisexual thing and realised that you like who you like, regardless of gender.
"Still, it was new to both of us, so it was a little daunting.
"I’m glad I got a push to explore that side of my sexuality - even if it was meant as a joke."
Syra and Grace have been going strong since September last year.
