Leslie raised a glass of red wine in his right hand and proposed a toast. “Here’s to MyTransgenderCupid, the best TS dating site on the internet,” he said. “The site which helped me find the T-girl of my dreams, Katie! Cheers!”

I smiled across the table at him and raised my own wine glass, touching it gently against his. “Cheers to you too, Leslie! Here’s to another great year and to many more. I’m so happy we met!”
