Dating a transgendered man

She turned and looked at me and told me that she was fine with it.

Evan: I realized I was trans* when I was 18 while I was at college in San Francisco.

My girlfriend at the time was really supportive with me becoming comfortable discovery what being trans.

Looking back, it seems dating was much easier when I was a cis-gendered female, rather than it is now that I am an out trans guy.

But there’s no denying that the dating part itself presented fewer challenges as a cis-gendered person.

I was also a little worried about her reaction because I had a friend in college whose girlfriend broke up with him because she did not want to date “a man” and was a “lesbian.” I figured that because we were apart, dealing with that kind of reaction long-distance would be harder than if I could tell her in person.

Because my girlfriend and I lived apart, it was easy for her not to know.

I learned after we broke up that she was much more upset about my waiting to tell her than she initially let on. She is not particularly outwardly-emotive, so I wasn’t expecting a lot of enthusiasm.
