In conjunction with iDateTranssexual, the leading Transgender dating site, we recently undertook a comprehensive survey. It comprised a large representative sample of their members and potential members. We asked some of men who use the site a variety of questions about dating Trans women. And, of course, we talked to a lot of T-girl members to get their views and opinions.
Below is a summary of some of the key points which emerged. The reasons for both men and T-girls using the site were quite similar. In fact, you can see there is some cross-over in the answers from both the men and Transgender women. Not surprising really as this is what makes the site an ideal meeting point for people with mutual interests and intentions. And also, it meets one of the site’s core objectives of bringing people together to date. Helping men find their dream Transgender woman and vice versa!
Of the men we interviewed, apart from the beauty, grace and femininity of the Transgender women they had met through iDateTranssexual, these are the key observations about using the site to date T-girls:
Heinz from Germany said: “The choice of T-girls looking for men to date is huge and I see new girls on the site every few days. In fact, I log-in a couple of times per day just to chat with some of the Trans women I really like.”
Gerrit from Amsterdam: “There’s nothing worse than talking to a girl in a club or bar for an hour or so only to subsequently find out she is not a Transgender woman. It wastes the lady’s time and mine.”
“A London boy” said: “I like T-girl dating site because you can get to know the girl you are talking to well before you meet. You can ask her what you feel you need to know about Trans women and she can ask you about your life, career and hobbies.”
Pierre from Lyon said: “All of the T-girls I meet on the site seem remarkably well educated. It’s as if they have had to study harder to gain acceptance. Then, at work, they seem highly motivated.”
Of the Trans women we interviewed, whether they were T-girls, Trans-pinay or Ladyboys here are some of the key comments about the men they had met through iDateTranssexual:
Karen commented: “It’s refreshing to talk to men who seem genuinely interested in T-girls for a long-term relationship, and not looking for a quick short-term sexual encounter. Most men I meet are sensitive when asking personal questions.”
Lucy believes: “You can tell if a man is genuine if he has some empathy for Trans women and understands that we are, fundamentally, first and foremost women. We expect to be treated like women and have plenty to give in return.”
According to Marcie: “Many Transgender women fear for their safety when they are out in clubs or bars and a man starts talking to them. It’s the fear of what the reaction of the man will be if he doesn’t know you are Trans and subsequently finds out that you are”
Lucy: “Name a country and you can possibly meet a man from there on the website. We all know people from different parts of the world have a different outlook on life. It’s quite exciting to think I can date a man from the US or Spain or Holland even though I am Trans.”
So, there we have it. A distillation of hundreds of comments and points of view. Keep a lookout for our next survey!
