Speaking from a straight-girls stand-point, how would or how do you think you should go about, when it comes to dating "etiquette" for a lesbian? Obviously since they are two women involved, who pays for dinner or date? Is it split evenly, half & half. I don't know, I've always been curious. And if you are a lesbian how do you go about it? Do you portray certain so called "mannerisms" like opening the car door or what? I'd imagine it'd be a lot different then a straight couple, but who knows..

Right... I can only answer this from the point of view of a bisexual person, but a presume you are just wanting to know about etiquette when two girls are dating.
I will just go through some of the most common dating etiquette.
General appearance - It is always expected that you will look nice on a date... it doesn't mean that you are going to spend hours in front of the mirror... just about taking pride in your appearance. Same deal with hygiene and making sure you smell nice (though with girls don't use really floral scents - it isn't attractive to other females)
Paying for dates - generally the person who asked pays, or at least that is what is considered polite but it is always good to be prepared to pay for yourself. If it is a date that no-one asked - just mutual agreement - then it's best to split the bill. Same sort of deal with who drives - like if someone is going to pick the other up.
Really otherwise it is pretty much the same as dating guys...
The most important thing is to be yourself, to try and talk about things that you are both interested in, and talk to their face, not their genitals or breasts.2
