I think my social anxiety is lowering to a point to where I can find a girlfriend. But, I'm still self-conscious about not only being a DL, but a transsexual DL. I know transsexuals are able to find significant others, but I'm sure being a DL is less common and a lot weirder.
So, how should I go about telling potential girlfriends that I'm a DL (and trans)? Do I tell them up front on the first date, a few dates in? And what do I do if she doesn't take it well? I really don't know anything about relationships, I've never had a real one.
I just want someone to be my true self with. Someone that can indulge in my interests with me. I'm just sick of being bottled up and alone.
