Confessions About What It's Like Dating A Transgender Person Shed Light On One Beautiful Truth

"My boyfriend braided my hair for me this morning. Just one of the many perks of loving someone who is transgender."

Awareness surrounding the every day struggles of transgender people has spread with the help of the LGBTQ community and celebrities like Laverne Cox and Caitlyn Jenner. However, there are still things the general public doesn't understand about the lives of transgender people. In particular, there is a lot of misinformation about their romantic lives, and what that relationship might be like for their partners. 

To help others understand (though everyone's experience is different, and their own), several people who have a partner that is transgender used the Whisper app to share some of their personal thoughts on the subject. 

Their confessions, at once informative and honest, shed light on one beautiful truth: Their experiences are not much different than those of cisgender, heterosexual couples. Their responses also help to highlight some of the struggles transgender people face when it comes to relationships.
