Studio 10 presenter Narelda Jacobs and her girlfriend Karina Natt are embracing a lesbian dating trend of the “urge to merge”.
Narelda and Karina went Instagram official last month, telling us they started dating during Sydney WorldPride in Sydney.
Last week the women posted a photo to their Instagram Stories of them both in an elevator wearing suspiciously similar outfits, jeans, boots and tops.
In the photo, Karina added the Urban Dictionary definition for the “urge to merge” and Narelda added a laughing emoji.
Urban Dictionary describes the phenomenon as “the tendency (usually attributed to lesbians) to become the same person.”
The slang website entry said, “They start wearing the same outfits, doing everything together, essentially becoming the same person at the horror and disgust of their friends.”

Narelda Jacobs is a Studio 10, 10 News and Mardi Gras telecast presenter and Karina is the chief of staff for South Australian Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young.
In the caption, Narelda wrote that the couple went on their first date in February.
“Can’t ignore the numbers. First date 23/02/23. One month later 23/03/23,” she wrote.
Narelda Jacobs was previously in a relationship with filmmaker Stevie Cruz-Martin.
The journalist has spoken before about her upbringing in a conservative Christian family, and her subsequent struggles to accept her sexuality after being taught gay people would go to hell.
