Dating a transexual woman
Everyone has their own past and everyone has their own demons. I wish more people understood that transgender men and women are people.
Transgender people know exactly who they are, and nobody should be able to say anything different. I used to party all the time, and was very disconnected from my family; being in this relationship has helped me see there are people out there who’ve had it a lot harder than I ever did. Today I have a good job, stability, and a love I never thought possible, although I do feel people identify with me differently now.
With time though, I believe they’ve accepted that Ty and I are very happy together, and I know it’s what they want for me now.
As for my friends, most of them accept our relationship, praise how strong I’ve become since meeting Ty, and applaud how committed the two of us are to each other.
Apart from that, she just gets angry at me when I let the dog on the couch!
Being physically intimate together is very different from what I was used to, but, through everything, I still see her as a woman, emotionally and physically.
After I learned to reject their comments, our relationship became real and strong.
The downs are mostly when Ty’s feeling self-conscious; I feel bad that I can’t help her, and that’s when we get frustrated at each other.She was very clear about her situation from the beginning, and I was very open to a friendship, until I started to form some very real feelings for her.I didn’t have too many fears or concerns when we began our relationship.We would love to adopt, because I was adopted myself.Being adopted has made me a lot more accepting of people’s differences.
