Question of the Week
"I have been looking for a long time to have a relationship with a transsexual. I know this is not a dating service but most sites online are centered around porn, or I'm not looking in the right places. It is almost depressing me. I have in the past often thought of wanting to be a woman even to the degree of taking HRT on my own (which I found out was dangerous without proper medical advice). I have accepted that I�ll always be man on the outside but it would be nice to share my life with someone who knows how it feels to be me on the inside and who has made the commitment to being a woman. "
