Effective Tips For Dating A FTM Transgender Guy

FTM Trans Guys

Relationships are tough. They are marred by a plethora of complications, including poor communication, petty disagreements, and jealously. However, there are some relationships that come with their own unique challenges. One such relationship would be with a FTM transgender guy. If you are a tough cookie who has been eyeing a hot FTM trans guy, there are several tips below that can help you have a smooth relationship with him.

FTM Trans Guys Are Different

Although it may sound cliché, it is worth mentioning that, just like everyone else, transgender guys are not all the same. They come from different backgrounds in terms of culture, race, religion, etc. Also, their transitioning periods have not been the same. Remembering this is important because it will help you get to know them on a personal level.

Additionally, it is important to note that transgender guys have the same social, romantic, and sexual needs as anyone else. However, their needs might be slightly different compared to other cis men you have dated before.

Your Relationship Might Be Perceived Differently By Other People

FTM Trans GuysOne of the unique challenges that comes with dating a transgender guy is people making assumptions about your relationship. Because you are dating a FTM transgender guy, some people might assume that you are gay. Even if you say otherwise, your family members and friends could still secretly think that you are gay. Being labeled as gay because of your partner’s gender identity can seem cruel and unfair. Nonetheless, you should expect some confusion and learn how to handle intolerance.

Be Prepared To Support Your Trans Guy

Transitioning is no walk in the park. Worse, some transgender people lack support when they come out. Even their friends and family members may offer them a cold shoulder. Therefore, it is important to support your transgender man. Transgender guys are constantly faced with the challenge of projecting a strong male image. Complimenting his efforts to be manly would go a long way in helping him feel more comfortable with his masculinity.

In addition, if your man has any issues with his body, be supportive. If he wants to keep his shirt on while having sex, do not force him. Over time you can find a slow but loving way to get his shirt off. If you show that you are comfortable with his body, he will certainly start becoming comfortable with himself.

Make Him Feel Comfortable With Intimacy

FTM Trans GuysCommunication is key when dating a transgender man. Make sure that you ask him about his body and his sexual needs, and find out what turns him on. By doing this, you will help him feel comfortable with intimacy. It is important to mention that some FTM Transgender Guys may dislike sexual contact that is usually enjoyed by female-bodied folk, and they may feel uncomfortable with certain aspects of the female anatomy. Therefore, make sure the two of you can discuss these things freely so that you can enjoy being intimate.

  1. “Female anatomy” is transphobic and assuming the partners of trans men are always did women is…weird. two big things I was not expecting from a “trans friendly” article

  2. First and foremost: I love this post! Second, I had some observations to share, which is probably just the editor in me, so my apologies in advance if I unintentionally cause offense or consternation.

    I noticed the article says “people might assume you’re gay” if dating someone who is FTM; I’ve a friend who experienced something similar when he starting dating his boyfriend who is FTM and people made the assumption he is now straight or bi. I love this post and think it’s helpful.

    The article also states “[b]eing labeled as gay because of your partner’s gender identity can seem cruel and unfair.” I agree that being assigned what you feel is an inaccurate label by others can seem unfair. Is not “having a partner of the same gender” a widely accepted definition of what it means to be gay; just as “having a partner of a different gender” is a widely accepted definition of what it means to be straight?

    Finally, while reading the sections of the post that contain the referenced material I was left with the impression that the author feels that being labeled as gay is somehow undesirable, negative, or wrong. I am sure that conveying this assumption was not deliberate, as the overall message clearly shows positive intent.
