Perhaps you recall me telling you about my new friendship with a transgender woman who is now starting more and more to find her way in a feminine world.
Much of what we talk about has to do with her "dating life" or, the attempts to establish one.
From her, I understand now there is a trans LGBT dating appt and, why wouldn't there be. I know back when I was seriously seeking dates from mainly men, there wasn't such a thing. If there was or wasn't, according to my friend, her initial results are largely the same as mine.
For example, one guy wanted her to dress up like a ten year old girl and another just wanted to wear her panties.
Of course I told her to be very careful and she said she always insists the guy wears a rubber. I said well, that is all well and good but make sure you don't get get caught off guard and basically raped or molested. Don't assume all of your old male privilege against it still exists.
Then, I related the story about the night I was cornered at a party by a man much larger than I, so quickly, it made my head spin. If it wasn't for a cis woman bailing me out, chances of my mini skirted rear making it out of the situation may have been dim. I am enclosing a picture of a close proximity to what I was wearing.
From that point on, it has been lesson learned. I have discovered I must be aware of what it going on behind my back...with men and women. I discovered early on too, a woman can smile to your face, while at the same time, stab you in the back.
I also told my friend to look at the dating process this way, she is just going through the same process every cis woman does!
