There are multiple types, so you must do some research and choose the binding methodology that suits you best.

Transgender Women

After your long search for a transgender girlfriend finally bears fruit, your next move should be to ask her out on a date. Of course, you want to make sure that you impress her during the first date, but this is also the easiest time to mess things up. To boost your chances of a second date, you must do some pre-date planning and preparation. Getting things right during the first date will certainly impress your transgender girlfriend. Below are some valuable tips that will help you have a successful first date.

Give Her Options for the Date Venue

Before the date, you should show your transgender girlfriend that you are thoughtful. Giving her a few options for the date venue will show her that you want her to be comfortable on your first date. Ideally you would come up with at least three options and let her decide which one is most convenient. As a side note, make sure you choose places relatively near her residence so that she feels safe.

Stay Within Your Budget

As a gentleman, you are expected to pay for the first date. Therefore, when you choose the date venues, make sure it is a place you can afford.

This will help you know which topics your transgender girlfriend is comfortable talking about. If you do want to try a new topic, make sure that it is an interesting one. As a rule of thumb, avoid subjects that are controversial or very personal on the first date, like sex, as they might send a wrong signal to your partner or make her feel uncomfortable.

Ask for a Second Date

If the first date goes well, don’t hesitate to tell your transgender women that you would really love to see her again. If she enjoyed your company too, she would definitely say yes. Being interesting and a little mysterious is a good way to make her want to know you more. It is also important that you make her laugh.

Ask Her to Text You When She Gets Home

Asking her to shoot you a quick text letting you know she got home safely is a quick, easy gesture that tells her that you genuinely care. You can also use this opportunity to thank her for the date and wish her good night.

How to Embrace Your Femininity without Comparing Yourself to Other Ciswomen

MTF Trans Woman

There is no cookie cutter path to become a confident MTF Trans Woman. You will at times find yourself stumbling in your quest to embrace your femininity. When you stumble, find yourself envious, or compare yourself to other cis-woman, know that you are not alone. Many MTF Trans Women fall into the pit of comparing themselves with cis-women.
It is often said that comparison is the death of joy. In fact, it is one of the surest ways to lower your self-esteem. But how do you stop comparing yourself to others? Below are some valuable tips that will offer you an answer.

Realize that Comparing Yourself is Destructive

MTF Trans Woman

While comparing yourself to others is a fairly normal behavior, it can be self-destructive in many situations. This is because each person is their own worst critic, meaning when we compare ourselves to others, we tend to judge ourselves more harshly. The first step to stopping this behavior is by consciously realizing that it is destructive. You may always find cis-women to be pretty, but their beauty has nothing to do with yours. You are beautiful in your own way separate from them.

Focus on Yourself

For you to make positive strides on your journey to embrace your femininity, you should compare yourself only to yourself. When you look at yourself in the mirror, smile more vibrantly than you did yesterday. Think about what you have achieved and all your potential for the future. When you compare yourself to yourself instead of other cis-women, you will be more appreciative of your uniqueness. Additionally, this process helps you feel good about yourself without necessarily having to think less of others.

Be Kind and Polite

The way you treat others often reflects the way you feel about yourself. As a result, showing compassion for yourself allows you to be more compassionate towards others and vice versa. If you tend to criticize other people, you will likely be more critical of yourself. However, if you are kind to others, you will almost certainly be kind to yourself.

Focus on the Positives

MTF Trans Woman

Every person has flaws. A guaranteed way to magnify your flaws out of proportion is by comparing yourself with other people. People tend to present the best of themselves to the outside world both in person and on social media. You are likely comparing your flaws with the best the other person has to offer; it is not a fair comparison. Instead of comparing yourself with other people, try to focus on the positive aspects of yourself and your life. Make it a habit to think positively about yourself and others.

Embracing the Journey from Female to Male

Female to Male

Female to MaleThe surgery that will enable you to transform from female to male is known as Sex Reassignment Surgery. This surgery alters your physical features to match those of the male gender. It involves two stages: the upper surgery and the bottom surgery. The upper surgery includes a double mastectomy and the reconstruction of the chest. This will get rid of your bust and give you a flat, manly chest. The bottom surgery involves a surgery known as RFF Phalloplasty. This procedure involves the use of skin and veins from the forearm to construct a male phallus. Apart from RFF Phalloplasty, there is another similar procedure called ALT Phalloplasty that uses skin and veins from the thighs to make a male phallus instead.

Transitioning from female to male is a unique journey for each person who chooses to undertake it. You not only have to transition physically but socially as well. Below are some insightful tips that will help you learn how to embrace your journey from female to male.

Accept Yourself

Start Acting/Dressing like a Guy

Female to Male

Social transformation is an important step on your journey to embracing your masculinity. You can start your social transformation simply by acting and dressing like a guy.

There are various websites online where you can read about how to project a manly image.

Seek Professional Help

For your physical transformation, you will need professional help. You should begin by talking to a therapist, who can help you with the emotional problems you may be going through.

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.
