London, as the capital city of UK, is home to a diverse set of people. Including Transgender women from all over the world. As well as many gay men and women; plus, a broad cross section of other people: many of who are straight or hetero! : )
With its multi-cultural, all working and living together in a sprawling, 24 hours per day city. London is full of surprises. In fact, many people go so far out of their way to look different. (As in New York or another capital city where the arts scene is over-the-top). That it is unusual for Trans woman to receive a second look. Unless of course, she is, for example. Attired or generally revealing far too much. For T-girls, whether looking to find a partner or date men or not. It’s a comfortable city to go about their business or study, with plenty of places to congregate or meet up.
If you are Trans and "out", then there is almost no limit where you can or cannot go. Yet it's always prudent to keep one eye on your safety and well-being. As there are still bigots and narrow-minded people in every major city in the world. For the T-girl who is not yet out there, there are plenty of meeting places. Either associated with or ancillary to the gay scene. (After all, LBGTQI quite incorrectly lumps all T's together with their gay cousins). Or stand-alone T-related places to go or events such as beauty pageants or drag shows to attend. There are also Trans girl nights in local pubs. Or other organized get-togethers with others similar interests in presenting as female.
London is a big enough city for any Trans person to meet and associate with others if that’s what they want. It’s also a city where there are plenty of "Tranny Chasers". Or men who admire Transgender women, wanting to hook-up with a T-girl. Most, as you might expect, looking for a very short-term liaison and not a relationship. A liaison that involved getting the T-girl into bed as fast as possible to state their needs.
London, Home of all kinds of different people. Including Transsexuals and Transgender women that are looking to date.
To be fair, it is a very fine distinguishing line between the renowned Tranny chaser. And other men who are genuine and looking for long term relationship. The former admires T-women, as a fetishist type thing. Whereas the second type of men sees T-girls as another type of woman. And one with who he can co-habit and build a loving relationship. There are without a doubt, some Transgender women who, by necessity or other motivation. Encourage the aforesaid Tranny chasers or curiosity seekers and enter into paid. Short term liaisons. They could use the money they receive for day to day living if they have no job. Or it may saved towards the costs of some of the many cosmetic surgeries most T-girls aspire to have. Whatever the reason, London has all sort of dating arrangements between consenting adults.
If we move away from talking about these paid liaisons. And go back to talking about the chances of a regular Transgender woman in London looking to find a man to date. It will be that a typical T-girl will face some challenges. Challenges if she is in a public restaurant, bar or club looking for a man. She is not only competing with other T-girls. Who are, if we can say, selling their favours, but is also challenged by the type of men who are approaching her. It’s far better don’t you think for our Transgender woman to sit at home. And look through a specialized Trans dating site such as MyTransgenderCupid?
She can join such a site and log-on any time she wants. Then our T-girl can take her time perusing the profiles. And browsing photos of men on the site who have a declared interest in dating T-girls. Once in contact, the two parties can ask each other questions and about their likes and dislikes. And needs and wants and motivation for dating. Not only does this save a great amount of time. But eliminates (from both sides point of view) those who are unlikely to be compatible.
Using a Transgender dating site such as MyTransgenderCupid takes away the misunderstanding . The men on the site are looking for T-girls to date; the T-girls are looking for men. No problems later. Problem which might occur if they had met in a club in London centre. And one of the parties didn't appreciate all there was to know about the other person…. not only likely to cause upset but, for a T-girl, the all too common risk of violence.
Finally, and also import. A Transgender woman can attempt the verify that the man she is talking to online. And looking to date is who he says he is. Not easy but not impossible. And something well worth doing given the risks in today's less than safe world.
So, there you have it; for any T-girl looking to date in London, use a specialized dating site. It's a bit like always using a condom, really!
