Like any couple, we have our arguments, but we always bounce back.The downs are mostly when Ty’s feeling self-conscious; I feel bad that I can’t help her, and that’s when we get frustrated at each other.She was very clear about her situation from the beginning, and I was very open to a friendship, until I started to form some very real feelings for her.I didn’t have too many fears or concerns when we began our relationship.Everyone has their own past and everyone has their own demons. I wish more people understood that transgender men and women are people.
Being physically intimate together is very different from what I was used to, but, through everything, I still see her as a woman, emotionally and physically.
When I moved to a new town in Pennsylvania just over a year ago, I had no idea of what an enormous effect the change would have on my life.
The only people I knew in Pennsylvania were a few friends I’d lived with previously who were local to the area, so it’s safe to say my social circle when I first moved here wasn’t huge.
Some people think of me as gay or bisexual, and I’m not at all. There are so many amazing things about our connection, I love the chemistry in our relationship.
Never in my life have I felt closer to another person.
