Trans paradise dating
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.
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.
While most people only consider the profile pic before swiping right or left, for me, the text on my profile is crucial.
Even since Tinder introduced more genders to choose from than just the binary male and female, it doesn’t show your gender on the swiping screen.
With these men, I went on dates in public at the movies, or a chill restaurant, and I was viewed as more than a new sexual experience—but I don’t think I was seen as potential relationship material either. We vibed well and there was sexual tension building during our dates. After a month, he reached out to me saying he couldn’t be with me because I am transgender.I usually get very forward messages from guys who just want me for my body.They view me as exotic, a kink, something new to try.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.
