I'm sure I'm not alone in this.
You want to see what all the hype about dating sims are, and you want to play as your own gender, but you can't get excited about choosing from a bunch of guys. What do you do? You find one with -gasp- same sex options... option... there is, in fact, one romance-able girl... You did not ask for accuracy...

This keeps happening...
So I plead, point my feet on the path towards the resolution of this.

I have no idea what exactly you are trying to say.

Maybe that's what you are looking for, it will be released in a few months.
So, what are you trying to say?

I think you grasped the intent, XD that looks wonderful!

So yeahhhh
With out the "Trying and failing to be cool filter" I'm asking:

Can you recommend dating sims or visual novels where I can play as a gay woman?

If you read japanese or are willing to fish for the fanpatch "Aoi Shiro" comes to mind.
Beyond that a lot is male oriented porn and "Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke o" is a series of 20 games and I'm sure with more to come.

Also I'm not sure about "Kindred Spirits" http://mangagamer.org/kindredspirits/, but the discription reads rather porn heavy.
As for "The Shadows of Pygmalion" http://mangagamer.org/pygmalion/ it doesn't look like romance and I have no idea when both will come out.

http://www.yatanootori.com/yatagarasu/product/rezonansu/index.html "Seisai no Resonance" is sitting on my backlog for ages by now, I haven't started it because it has game play in it with running around and killing stuff with swords and it's in japanese and makes it a little bit harder on me.

http://rainbowdimension.jp/stargazer.html "Stargazer" is in japanese too, but it was okay and I enjoyed it (as much as I understood of it at least )

http://www.insani.org/resonance.html is given away for free, as far as I remember it was okay too.

That's all I can think of.

A Kiss for the Petals is supposed to be a very good series about a young lesbian couple in love. There has been a fan translation floating around for awhile, though Mangagamer just announced recently that they were picking the series up for legal distribution in the United States.

http://blog.mangagamer.org/2015/07/05/announcements-from-anime-expo-2015/

The only two dating sims that I've actually played that have same-sex possibilities are HuniePop and Roommates. (Both allow you to choose your gender at the start of the game.) HuniePop (available on mangagamer or Steam) is a mediocre dating sim combined with a very good Match 3 game ; Roommates (available on Steam) is a more traditional dating sim, though not an especially deep one--it's not bad, but also not memorable.

If you want a good Yuri title, have a look at this one. https://alienworks.itch.io/highway-blossoms

Highway Blossoms is more of a visual novel than an actual Dating sim, but still it might scratch your itch until flowers game comes out.

This game is great...

http://store.steampowered.com/app/317300/

It has paths for Straight, Gay and Lesbian relationships depending on which ones you choose to pursue. It's an interactive visual novel/dating-sim where your choices will affect your ending.

Also I second A Kiss for the Petals. It's more a kinetic story-telling than an interactive game but it's on the level of a great manga or anime.

Oh...and this site is good for showing what's available. There are also many less than "family friendly" Yuri games out there which I can't mention here in detail but if you also want ones of that style a search on google for "Yuri Eroge games" should find you a lot.

Also if you use Steam there's a group specifically for Yuri game lovers...
