I’m a M-F Transgendered Woman. Would Someone Date Me?

Dr. Wendy Walsh Dr. Wendy Walsh • 10/03/12

Reader Question:

I am a M-F transgendered woman at 54 years old. I can’t picture myself ever dating a man, and I saw Our Time includes lesbian couples.

With the world today, what are the chances that people are more open minded, know that sometimes things go wrong at birth and would date someone such as myself? And also, are there secure men out there?

-Cristina (Florida)

Dr. Wendy Walsh’s Answer:

Cristina. You are not alone. And the LGBT community is probably more open minded and accepting than any other group on the planet, especially in large cities in the Northeast and on the West Coast.

Find a LGBT social life in your city. I promise you, there’s someone for you. But I offer one caveat. Until you accept and truly love yourself, you can’t expect anyone else to. Sometimes the most powerful closed minded person lives inside us.
