I get plenty of matches on Tinder, but within 24 hours around half of them un-match or block me after reading my profile.
Whenever I do start talking to guys who “stick around,” I make sure that they know I am transgender before meeting them.
As I click, message and swipe through the world of online dating, I’ve quickly learned that there are at least three different types of guys: those who fetishize trans women, those who are curious but cautious, and those who simply don’t read.

Before it went further, I did my routine check of asking, “You know I’m right? I sat in the back seat of my car in complete shock.

I usually get very forward messages from guys who just want me for my body.
They view me as exotic, a kink, something new to try.
