Tips for dating trannies
However, I recently went on a date with a guy who was tall, handsome, funny and had his shit (relatively) together. I responded saying it was all over my Ok Cupid profile, which it turns out he never read.We met in the late afternoon and enjoyed our frozen yogurt in perfect patio weather. At the end of the date, our first kiss quickly turned into a handsy makeout session in the backseat of my car. He said, “I’m bouncing; that’s f-cked up,” and jumped out of the car, spat on the ground, slammed the car door and walked away.With these kind of guys, I’ve felt like I was their dirty little secret, and at first, I thought this type of interaction was the closest thing to a relationship I was going to have as a trans woman.But I finally reached my limit when one of my dates bumped into someone he knew when we were together.Before it went further, I did my routine check of asking, “You know I’m right? I sat in the back seat of my car in complete shock.In that moment, I was mostly concerned about my safety.After that, I stopped chasing guys who were too concerned about their feelings to even think about mine.Red flags like continually postponing dates and constantly asking, “When are you getting the surgery?
Since transitioning in I haven’t reacted positively to guys who hit on me in person because I haven’t mastered the art of telling them that we have “the same parts.” For the past three years, Tinder has been my gateway into online dating as a transgender woman.As a 22-year-old grad starting a career in fashion (and hopefully, one day, my own size-inclusive clothing line), I am drawn to guys who are funny and ambitious.There’s no bigger turn-off than someone who does the bare minimum—except maybe body odour. Being 5’9″, I still like to be able to look up to my man, literally.” helped me whittle down the number of guys I talked to by half.Thanks to Tinder, profile pictures say more than a thousand words—and actual words seem to be irrelevant on our profiles.
