SENDS GUYS HERE TO LEARN
I'm a pre-op transwoman who has lived fulltime for over three years. I only say this to let you know where I'm coming from as it's really not that important. ;)
Anyway, I wanted to say thank you so much! I have a really hard time on various dating sites because I get lumped in with cross dressers and the such. After a while, I just get tired of explaining everything so I've just been sending guys who don't understand to your site. It's been a huge help, and while only a few of the guys ever get back to me, when they do it's a lot nicer. I'm still looking for Mr. (or Ms.) Right, but at least I know that I'm not alone and have help with some of the basics.
So, thank you very much!

A T-GIRL IS
A GIRL IS A GAL
I do not think you will respond to this, but I felt like I needed to write it. I am a 55-year-old man, there are a lot of us around. The difference between me and some is that I do not see a difference between a transgender woman and any other. I have been in relationships with two. And I mean I wanted to marry them, but one after her GRS decided she was lesbian. The other had some family stuff back in Indy and went home.
You may ask if I don't see any difference, then why seek a relationship with one? Simply put, I do not exclusively look for a TS. What I am looking for is a woman that is close enough for me to go out with and honestly get to know. It is simply that I refuse to exclude a TS simply because of who they are.
If you have any suggestions of what site I could use to meet said lady, I would be thankful. What I don't want is games and BS, and what I don't want is a gal that wants to be anything but a gal.
A T-GIRL ADMIRER
I need to get a clear understanding of the term "admirer." does this mean a man is gay or does it mean that he is attracted to transgender people? What exactly does that mean? I happen to have discovered that my husband was emailing transgender people and would say he is an admirer when not dressed. This has come as a big shock and actually ended our marriage. He tells me he is heterosexual, which I don't believe.
Please help with this.
Your website is a great Idea. However, it troubles me that there is no way for us that are not into men to use your site and declare what we are looking for. Being a lesbian in preference, it troubles me that we are excluded all too often in this world. Unfortunately!
Most other TG dating sites cater to men seeking transgenders for playmates or other TSs seeking to only fulfill their sexual needs. Just as anyone else, I would like to feel like I count, too. I would like to feel as though my needs can be found someplace. It saddens me when I see a growing list of ways to exclude others like myself. Is there any way that others like me do not feel unwanted or dismissed on your site as well? If not, then please let me know what options there are out there for us. Is there any hope?
Lesbian dating sites ignore us (not properly equipped for them) and gay sites don't fit (too much equipment) and I have already mentioned the other so-called TG/TS sites (sex is the theme). And the regular dating services do not give the option to specify our gender correctly.
Yes! I am a woman. A transsexual woman. However, I did not come with the right parts or sexual preference to fit anywhere. This sucks. On your site, I saw it said that, "A T-Girl Should Be a Happy Girl." I guess that did not include all of us. I'm a single parent and work way too many hours to make a site of my own. Also, I don't have the skills to do that. What's a girl to do?
TGirls, let the guys who contact you know about this website. Please run a link to our homepage, or to any page you find of importance.
