If you are a man who is falling for a transgender woman, here are some things you should know before dating her.

1.Do not bring up bedroom talk on the first date.

Please save the sexual conversation for when you are in the bedroom together. It’s already a topic that can make transgender women feel uncomfortable, so save her the trouble by waiting for the right moment to say something.

2. Use Google as a way to learn about the transgender community.

It can be really difficult for a transgender woman to answer all of your questions about her gender identity. There is plenty of information out there on the web for you to research.

There is a website out there to help you through hard times in a relationship.

3. Watching porn online isn’t going to earn you any gold stars.

Porn sites exaggerate what transgender sex is really like. It also distorts people’s image about the transgender community.

4. Do not use backhanded compliments.

First of all backhanded compliments are just like getting a slap to the face. They are not kind and should be kept to yourself. Backhanded compliments will only scare her away.

5. Trans women don’t always fall for someone who identifies as a straight man.

This is very common misconception that trans women always want to be with a straight man. When actually, some trans women identify as lesbian.

6. There is a difference between gender and sexuality.

Your gender can be fluid, whereas, sex is something that is biologically determined. If you are a straight man and you are interested in a trans woman you are still considered straight because she identifies as a woman.

7. Transgender women are not in a secret society.

Women who are transgender don’t just hide away. They fit in with society and try the hardest to stay away from people who shame them for being who they are.

8. Treat trans women with respect.

Don’t be disrespectful to women who are transgender. Not only is it highly rude, it is also discriminating. Everyone deserves to be treated with the utter most respect.

9. Some men find trans women as a catch.

There is no reason to treat trans women like they are a joke. Trans women are at a very high risk of being domestically abused in a relationship. This should never be the case. Trans women are women and shouldn’t be handled like they are a joke to men.

10. Girls just wanna have fun as Madonna put it.

Take a chance and take that gorgeous transgender woman on a date. Every girl wants to be treated like the queen that she is. Invite her to do fun activities such as a romantic dinner, movie, an amusement park, or even just a simple picnic.
