Dating a transgender person is just like dating anyone else.
Of course, if you zoom in a little to the specifics, then naturally there are some differences. This varies from person to person, though.
There are a handful of things that are nearly universal among trans people, though, and you should probably familiarize yourself with these tips before you go to transgender dating:
One of the things that will make a trans person roll their eyes at you or simply avoid you is if you didn’t take two seconds to do a tiny bit of research on Google and they find that they have to explain everything to you.
You may think you know what a trans person is, but if all your knowledge came from popular media, you might actually have no idea and not even realize it.
Respect Your Date
Always make sure the person is comfortable before you escalate physically with them.
Most trans people have body dysphoria, which means that they have an inherent discomfort with certain parts of their body, usually their primary and secondary sex characteristics. This goes beyond simply not liking a part of their body—it may feel absolutely alien to them. Which parts someone is uncomfortable with will vary from person to person.
Crossing these boundaries can quickly turn the person off. For someone who doesn’t have this kind of dysphoria, it may be hard to understand, but if the trans person you’re dating says that a certain body part is off limits, respect that.
Transgender people are just people. Keep that in mind, treat them with compassion as you would anyone else, and you should be fine!
