Hi, my profile is a bit of an essay, so sorry about that! first off to answer the questions that are bound to be going through your head about now...
Yes, I am male. As you have probably guessed I am a transvestite... or actually, I prefer the term 'crossdresser' ... when you say the word 'transvestite' to people, they have a tendancy to think you are a psychopath who has body parts in his freezer... which i don't! lol... I should also clarify that I am straight, thats a common question as well... I'm not gay and I'm not Bi... men don't do it for me at all lol (no matter how many messages you send!)...oh and I'm not camp either if that helps :oP
Right now that's that out of the way. What am I looking for?... Well firstly, what I'm not looking for is a one night stand, I'm not into that. I'm looking a relationship (yes with a woman, we've covered this :oP), but friendship is a good place to start and let it progress from there. I'm looking for someone with an open mind who can accept me for who I am. In the past I have dated bisexual girls which works out well, but i have dated straight girls to, so either is cool :o)
If you are the type of girl who wants a guy she can talk to about clothes and go shopping with, and a guy who doesn't talk about football all day, then hopefully I am the one for you.
A sence of humour is important, as well as the ability to stimulate me intellectualy. We have to be able to have a conversation about things and be on the same sort of level, I think that's not to much to ask is it?
It's fair to say I'm not your average bloke. But I am genuine and honest, I don't play games (unless you ask :P) and I am 100% loyal. I tend to wear my heart on my sleave, which does mean i get hurt quite often unfortunately. I like to think of myself as a hopeless romantic... others just think i'm hopeless! lol
I am into creative things, espescially making jewellery, and I've recently got into painting as well. I am into some 'blokey' things as well, i like cars, formula one and motoGP. I have just finished college doing Art and Design, which was great fun. I also studied jewellery last year. I'm taking a year out now and planning to go to uni next year to study for a fine art degree.
I'd describe my dress sense as 'alternative'... meaning i wouldn't clasify my self as punk or goth or emo, but that I have my own style which is not what you would call 'trendy', i dont follow the crowd, i let the crowd follow me... they don't very often, but they're welcome to lol. I dont' dress "as a girl" (not really sure i like that choice of words, as I just dress as me, not as someone else) all the time, but it is something i do often, it's not just a private thing. When I am dressed "as a guy" I do tend to still wear eye makeup most days, generally i'd say I dress pretty androgenously most of the time. I like to look good however I'm dressed. I have my ears pierced twice, and also have my belly button and my left nipple pierced. I may want to get more piercings at some point, I may not, but if you have a problem with piercings then you should probably know that now.
***"WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR IN A PARTNER?"***
All the old cliches I suppose lol, trust, honesty, affection. Sence of humour is a big thing for me, make me laugh and I'm yours. Someone who is open minded and accepting of who I am.
Looks wise the first things that normally catch my eye are hair style and clothes, which i think tell a lot about a person, you can't choose what colour your eyes are, or how tall you are, but you can choose how you dress, so I don't think it's shallow to judge people by those things a little. Tall, short, blonde, redhead, brunette... I don't really have a type. It's about the person really.
***"WHAT MAKES A GOOD RELATIONSHIP?"***
Equality, and partnership are the main things, mutual respect and support. Not one person being supported and dependant on the other. Or to put it another way, not having one of us always wear the trousers :oP
Equality means Equality... no gold diggers please. I have no problem with paying on a date, but I don't like being expected to all the time, and I don't like being labelled a loser if I want to go dutch.
*"WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?"*
My favourite comedians are Dylan Moran, Eddie Izzard, Ross Noble, Bill Bailey, Lee Evans, Dara O'Briain. I love standup comedy, and have quite a collection of DVDs, I also like to go to see live shows whenever i get the chance. I have tickets to see Ross Noble in march, can't wait!
Mostly I like to laugh and joke with my friends, theres nothing funnier than bantering with people who you share a sence of humour with and who you have in jokes with that other people probably wouldn't get :o)
***"WHAT MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?"***
Lots of things really, I have fairly eclectic taste. Mostly Rock, punk, indie, metal... that sort of thing, also a bit of kareoke cheese (total eclipse of the heart anybody?!) If you want to know what bands I like, feel free to ask :o)
The only things I can't stand are R&B, Gangsta Rap and Chavvy techno crap (the kind you hear pounding out of a vaxhaul nova as it speeds around a council estate, or playing from someones phone that hangs round their neck as they walk down the highstreet.)
I went to Download Festival this year, which was pretty amazing :oD also I like to go to live gigs to when I can.
***"WHY SHOULD I DATE A TRANNY"***
1: Well, fist off, you'll have a boyfriend who doesn't complain about going shoe shopping!...
2: I'm in touch with my feminine side, and not afraid of being myself.
3: I look after myself, and care about my apearance.
4: Unlike your previus Boyfriends, I will ADMIT to trying on your underwear! :P
5: You get a guy who can hold you and pamper you and do the things you want from a guy, and you get a girl who you can talk about clothes with and swap make up tips with... 2 for the the price of one! lol
I think that just about covers it! Anything else you want to know, then get in touch, don't be shy! :) Also i am on facebook, if you want to see my profile ask and I will send you a link.
Oh and if i don't reply to you message straight away, it is probably because i am lurking somewhere in the forums on here, so come and say hi to me in there as well x
