We are going to try a different approach for Wifey finding a friend! We are on a road trip today so I did some poking around online and found a meet up page for transgender events in our area. It turns out there is an event this coming Monday specifically for trans women. I told Wifey she is going!
My hope is if she can meet some other girls that are actually out and about in person, she might have a better time finding a girlfriend that actually wants something real! Too many people hide behind the online sites and chatting and it is more fantasy based than reality based, and even though online can be a great tool, it comes with its own set of cons too!
What I like about this is that Wifey can get dressed and made up, and go be her female self while meeting some people that are just like her! A lot of these events allow family to attend as well, so in the future K and I could go with Wifey too if we want, but this first time or two I want Wifey to go solo and put herself out there, because this friend or friends are primarily for her. It isn’t totally necessary that the person want to be close to K and I too. The main purpose is to give Wifey more opportunity to be her female self and be accepted by people other than K and myself, for what she is! That is important to her, to be taken seriously for what she is. We do, but it will take time for her to believe others do.
This particular meet up happens once a month, but there are other ones she can look into going to as well! Hopefully this approach will be better!
