Free transgender dating
” 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.
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.
I usually get very forward messages from guys who just want me for my body.

Despite the fact that we were on our third date, he didn’t even acknowledge my existence as I stood there a couple feet from him while he talked to his friend.
His silence told me exactly how much I meant to him.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.These are men who find me attractive, but are initially hesitant because of my trans-ness.
