Dating mtf transsexuals
While the other answers focus a lot on maybe how to be respectful of a transsexual person you're dating, let me give my experience on meeting and maintaining relationships:1) If you're hunting around for an transsexual person to date just because they're transsexual, you might have a problem from the get-go.Here's why: the majority of transsexual people, while acknowledging that their history is a large part of who they are, would rather not make being transsexual the focal point of their relationship (especially those far into transition and perhaps had surgery).
I know that being a man who is dating a trans woman (who is outspoken and only sometimes passes) is not always an easy thing.
Let’s also take as a given the fact that being a trans woman who is outspoken and only sometimes passes is pretty much never easy thing.
Almost everyone interviewed about the topic was younger and lives in large metropolitan areas with significant queer communities (Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago).
The reality of trying to date while transgender is far more difficult and complicated, however. The episode quotes a statistic that only 7% of marriages survive transition.
We already spent a few (or many) years struggling with transition and are tired of everybody making a big deal about it, though we are used to it enough that we can shrug it off (in most cases).
