As I previously mentioned, I’ve been dipping my toes into the world of listing myself as bi on OKCupid. I haven’t gone on any dates, or even exchanged phone numbers or anything, but have had a number of interesting conversations. I’m still annoyed with the propensity for men on OKC to simply star me (indicating they like my profile) or send meaningless messages like “Hi” or “Ur cute,” but it’s been an interesting experience. (In a good way.) One conversation in particular has been on my mind, though:
Well don’t you sound very interesting! I’d really love a new transgender friend! I’d love to get a drink or maybe smoke a joint with you sometime, and see how well we click! . (Emphasis added)
There was more, about his open relationship and how he’s looking for friends and not necessarily hookups, but that’s the part that stuck with me.
