No matter what kind of dating you’re into, there are always pitfalls to be avoided if you want to get the best of it. When it comes to transsexual dating, those pitfalls might not be as obvious, so we’ve decided to compile a list of the most dangerous ones you should try to avoid at all cost. Transgender ladies are very special, you need to treat them like the delicate flowers that they are, and we’re here to help you do just that.
Pitfall #1: Wrong Assumptions
Our mainstream society still has a lot to learn when it comes to TS women, and one of the biggest transgender dating pitfalls is definitely making the wrong assumptions related to their gender and sexual preferences. First off, it’s important to understand that most transsexual women struggle with gender identity and sexual orientation, and despite the fact that psychologically they feel feminine, their genitalia say otherwise. Some of them opt for sexual reassignment surgery, others keep their male sexual organs and enhance their breasts, but whether they choose the surgery or not has absolutely nothing to do with their sexual orientation. For all intents and purposes, they are women, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are attracted to men. Some prefer women, while others like their sexuality fluid, getting the best of both sexes.
Pitfall #2: Not Showering Her With Affection
Transgender women are just as feminine and girly as persons born as women. They love to be showered with affection, given chocolates on special occasions, and pampered whenever possible. If you want to make your transgender date as happy as possible, spoil her to no end, but keep in mind that this should come natural to you. Always focusing on her womanhood and how feminine she is can defeat the purpose, and make you look like you’re trying too hard. Treat your TS lady with respect, admiration, and love that she deserves, and expect to get plenty in return. There is a fine line between being affectionate and overdoing it, so try not to cross it, and you’ll be a master of transgender dating.
Pitfall #3: Calling Her By Her Birth Name
The most disrespectful thing someone can do to a transgender woman is to call her by her birth name, which is a boy’s name her parents picked for her. We may or may not understand what transgender persons go through to come to terms with the disconnect between their physical sex and their psychological sex, but that doesn’t give anyone the right to put transgender women down, and humiliate them when they’ve worked so hard to find their place under the sun. TS dating is just as challenging as any other kind of dating, meaning all couples fight from time to time, but no matter how angry you are, never for the life of you call her by her birth name.
