Free transgender dating
While most people only consider the profile pic before swiping right or left, for me, the text on my profile is crucial.Even since Tinder introduced more genders to choose from than just the binary male and female, it doesn’t show your gender on the swiping screen.I stayed in my back seat for probably five minutes to make sure he was gone.When I got back into the front seat to drive home, I still felt uneasy.I get plenty of matches on Tinder, but within 24 hours around half of them un-match or block me after reading my profile.
In that moment, I was mostly concerned about my safety.
So, whenever I see 6’2″ or taller on a guy’s profile, it’s almost an automatic right swipe.
As a trans woman on dating apps, I’ve always made sure that guys are aware that I am transgender. There have also been many documented cases of trans women being hurt and sometimes even killed when they disclose their status to transphobic men that found them attractive, so being completely transparent is also a way of protecting myself from potentially dangerous situations.
As a 22-year-old grad starting a career in fashion (and hopefully, one day, my own size-inclusive clothing line), I am drawn to guys who are funny and ambitious.
There’s no bigger turn-off than someone who does the bare minimum—except maybe body odour. Being 5’9″, I still like to be able to look up to my man, literally.
After realizing that I deserved so much better and was wasting my time with these guys, I stopped giving them attention.
