5 Essential Tips For Dating a Woman or Trans Man

Beginning a relationship with a trans woman or a trans man can mean blazing a whole new path for yourself. Although everyone is the same and love is love, it’s not a traditional dating scenario many have done before. As such, it’s not something you can easily look up and find advice on. But, just like any other date, it’s a good idea to figure out how you’d like your time together to go and what you’d like to happen. Once you’ve done that you’ll be able to create a date that you’ll both enjoy.

5. Don’t base it on any other relationship you’ve had

While this advice is true for any new relationship, it’s especially true when it comes to dating someone that identifies as trans. It won’t be like dating a cis man and it won’t be like dating a cis woman. It will be exactly like dating a trans man or a trans woman; special, unique, wonderful and exciting. That said, don’t go into this type of relationship thinking you know what you’re doing; expecting traditional ‘male’ and ‘female’ roles to play out likely won’t lead anywhere familiar so it’s best to go in open minded and with respect.

4. Look where you’re more likely to find a partner

An important step before starting a relationship is to find a place where you can find the trans person of your dreams. Being that most trans individuals still feel it necessary to hide aspects of themselves, whether for safety or other personal reasons, relying solely on local bars or clubs often won’t cut it. You’ll most likely have to go online and find a ‘shemale hookup‘ website where individuals are open about who they are. That said, finding a good site that’s filled with trans people is your best bet for getting together with someone who’s in your area and looking for dates.

3. Decide on a date or a hookup

As with any other dating situation, you’ll need to figure out if you want a date or a hookup. It’s key to know the difference between the two. A date may lead to more dates. What it may not lead to is sex. If you just want sex, you’re going to need to be honest with yourself and any potential dates and express that you’re just looking for a hookup. There are plenty of trans men and women who are seeking out both. You never really know how far things can go until you try them both out. Just make sure the other person knows exactly what you’re in the market for.

2. Decide on the sex

The other really important thing to think about is the kind of sex that you want to have. Plenty of men and women want to have the ‘normal’ sex they’re used to. That’s perfectly okay. Once again, you just have to make sure that the other person is on board with it. A woman dating a trans man needs to make it clear that she’s only interested in a traditional sexual arrangement. It will save you from all kinds of embarrassment and frustration at the end of the night.

1. Don’t rush things

Being that this is a new experience, it’s best to take things slow. Like any other potential relationship, take your time and let things happen naturally. There’s no sense in rushing into something before you’re ready, straight, gay or trans. Just slow down and let it all happen at its own pace. That’s the best way to go about dating a trans man or a trans woman (or anyone for that matter).
