Many guys who like trans women have done lots of sexual experimentation and that’s fine, but what if I just want a man who’s a bit boring? When I transitioned as a teenager I was convinced I’d have to spend the rest of my life alone because I couldn’t imagine anyone in my hometown so much as going for a pint with a trans person, let along dating one. I can’t promise that you will find love – no one knows that. This is not just about trans bodies either, it's about ALL bodies. #findyourhappiness #liveyourtruth #respectintimacy A post shared by Laith Ashley [De La Cruz]🇩🇴 (@laith_ashley) on I honestly don’t think this has ever happened to anyone, anywhere in real life. A guy was feeling me up once when I first transitioned and I’d forgotten to tell him that I was, well, ‘more than a woman’, so he found out for himself.
I asked some of my followers about the things they’d like to know/would like other people to know about dating trans folk and here’s what they came up with… But even so, if you think men who fancy me are gay because I ‘used to be a boy’ by that logic anyone who’s ever fancied a grown adult must be a paedophile – because everyone used to be a kid? And anyway, in my experience, it’s always better to wait for these things to, well, pop up naturally. It took him weeks to get his head around the fact that I was trans. Many men have been introduced to trans people through porn – so for them, we’re these hyper sexual creatures, a naughty fantasy.
I honestly believe there is someone out there for everyone and that love has a funny way of striking right when you least expect it. If you don’t want to be seen out with a trans person, don’t date one. https://twitter.com/harleyfacepalm/status/896366363597582336 “You wouldn't believe the number of straight women who hit on me because they want a fella in the streets and a woman in the sheets. It goes the other way too, if you're a lesbian with a homophobic family: don't date a trans guy just to pacify your folks.”Sunday thoughts. No one is forcing you to date a trans person and, honestly, we may not even want to date you anyway, but if you are interested, just don’t be a dick.
On the other hand, there are men who have never even thought about dating a trans woman before but who are open-minded when they meet one they like. I’ve had three serious relationships in my 20s with men who had never dated a trans woman before. For better or worse, more and more men seem happy to treat trans women with the same level of respect – or crap – as any other woman. I know you mean well, but being trans isn’t my “sexuality”. Sexuality is who you want to go to bed with – gender is who you want to go to bed as.
