While all this may seem pretty confusing at first, knowing the right terminology may be crucial when dating a transwoman since some transgender women do not like being called tranny, he she, or shemale.
Be honest about your intentions Before you start dating a trans woman, it may be worth your while to ask yourself the real reason for wanting to do so.
The very experience of a variant gender identity, the conflict between being born a particular sex and feeling a different gender and the painful awareness of belonging to a sexual minority are all sure to contribute to major issues of self esteem.
In addition, transitioning is an equally significant process which apart from physiological changes has emotional, psychological and social aspects too.
Despite coming out and/or making the transition, your trans woman date may not be ready to talk about her experiences but even then you can let it be know that you will be ready to talk whenever she is.Also because she may not have been by women as a woman and thus lack perspective, she may be oversensitive to some things when compared to genetic females.All this can bode a lack of maturity in your partner that can easily lead to complications in your relationship.The only thing you can do in such a situation is to deal with her as patiently as possible.
Offer her your love and support but at the same time, set clear boundaries on any kind of unreasonable behavior that you are not willing to accept.A transwoman is a transgender person with a female gender identity.
