Q&A, What its like Dating a Trans Guy!
I believe transgender and nonbinary people need to be in love with themselves first before dating someone else. It just looked like love was another thing I'd have to sacrifice to be myself.
I did consider finding validation in dating a chaserbut I have always found the idea unappealing. Dating someone for how they see your body is not advisable for anyone — trans or cis. They will be our strongest support system no matter what we face. My advice for others in the transgender and nonbinary community is to remember that you deserve to be treated well and have a partner or multiple partners that respect your identity.
There are plenty of people out there that can see the beauty of being transgender and nonbinary.
Talulah-Eve explains what it's like dating as a trans woman, and shares what you should know when going on dates with a trans girl. A lot of people will say it's not different at all, and while the sentiment is altruistic, it's completely incorrect. I've been with the same trans woman for 10+ years.
