Transexual dating cites
My foray into the dating world began a couple of years ago while I was still fairly early in my transition.After I came out as trans (FTM), my lesbian relationship was ending, and my first instinct was to stick mainly to gay and lesbian dating sites.But on the day of the date I received an angry text.“When were you going to tell me you are trans? My work in the media and a couple of published articles must have tipped her off.The irony, of course, was that my trans identity was not really something I was trying to keep hidden—from her, or from anyone.Some people I have spoken with say they think it’s important to disclose that you’re trans right away, while about an equal number of others say it’s better to wait to see if there is any chemistry before sharing such personal information. I made a plan to meet the woman I’d been messaging with for a coffee date.
Our mutually neutral reaction to one another must’ve had some promise, as we planned to go on another date the following weekend.After this notable dating disaster, I went on other dates that didn’t go as badly; but quite honestly, many people are not as open-minded as they’d like to believe.I recall planning a couple of potential dates in which the person explicitly acknowledged being comfortable about meeting a trans person, and then would politely back out before the date even happened.I planned to meet up with some trans guys who were members of a Facebook page I belonged to.I had not met any of them, but we are a very tight-knit group online, and I was excited about meeting.
