Dating a transsexual
Because I hadn’t really determined at that point whether or not I could actually be in a relationship with a trans woman.I said to myself, “well this is just a date, it’s not like we’re getting married or anything,” and I decided what the hell, I’ll just go ahead and message her and see how it goes. I remember the first time we went out in public at an IHOP, I believe it was.People looking for friendships and pen pal relationships may want to check out these options first.There is less pressure to find someone to hook up with since these sites do not focus on dating but rather on community.That didn’t stop the intense expression of confusion that spread across his face.“So you’re a man? “Do you know how lucky you are that I’m not, like, crazy?
Unfortunately, many personal sites are the target of people with ulterior motives.If I were in San Francisco, I probably wouldn’t have cared at all, or if I did, it would have only been a little.It was more that I had never been in a situation where I had to deal with stigma before.I remember being a little paranoid and wondering if people were looking at me.
It was not so much whether or not I had a realistic fear; I think it was the setting being the area that we live.
Despite one pervasive misconception that transgender people transition for the approval or acceptance of future sexual partners, when I transitioned there was nothing about the forthcoming experience that assured me I would be seen as desirable. But when you’re trans, it’s hard in a completely different way.
