Feel free to make your own jokes about the sentence above, but I promise what follows is not funny. You could not, as the old phrase goes, make it up. Most of us, I think, like to see ourselves as tolerant and open-minded. Live and let live is the prevailing social attitude of our times. For all the division and acrimony in political debate and online, British society is, by international and historical standards, strikingly liberal and tolerant.

Just like anyone else, we want to love and be loved. Unfortunately, transgender women face incredible adversity when it comes to dating. There is a great opportunity for humanization that comes with dating in the transgender community. However, there is a greater chance that it simply becomes a missed opportunity for connection. People who date transgender people can sometimes bring that i gnorance and stereotyping mentioned earlier into these budding relationships. Obstacles I face are trying to remember my worth and not allowing men to control me for their own fantasies.
When this disconnect sits squarely on top of the everyday obstacles dating entails, it becomes more of a daunting fantasy than any sort of reality. Some transgender people opt out of dating altogether just knowing how many roadblocks can and will get in the way. Some feared that dating could get them killed while others felt that they could only be themselves in the comfort of their home and opted to not be openly transgender. Knowing that so many women around the world feel this weight saddens me and reminds me of how much progress we have made in the United States, knowing that we have far to go but celebrating how far we have come.

Dating as a Transgender Woman
Brene Brown has a lot to say about this. My favourite has always been OkCupid. I like it because it allows for very specific filtering, gives a percentage match and allows for more nuanced identities and orientations than any other site.
