    I think it's so nice that you and your wife are working so hard on your relationship and that she is working to understand and accept your gender identity. She must be an amazing woman:) Happy for you:)))

    I kind of thought the same as Veronica. It's kind of cute pic, but nothing very sexy. I hope you are able to reassure her fears about it:)

    Jennilee, I am now very cautious about what pictures I post on like facebook and other social sites. I used to have a pic of my sister and I in matching Easter dresses when we were little. I thought it was a perfectly innocent and cute picture, but I got some of the creepiest comments from men that I've ever seen, even from a few guys that I thought were really nice. I also stopped posting full body pictures in dresses when a couple ended up on tumblr "she-male" sites. It's a shame that we can't post pictures that other girls would without weird comments or drawing unwanted attention.

    Monica, I mean skipping "the talk" by meeting guys that already know that I'm transgender so I won't have to go through it. Like through friends, or guys that know me from the tran-advocacy events that I do sometimes on campus, etc. I have met and dated guys that way and it was so nice not to know that I have to have that awkward discussion. Unfortunately, I haven't met anyone that way lately.

    I've tried a couple of the transgender dating sites and spent a lot of time describing myself, what I like and what I'm looking for. It was like the guys that contacted me didn't even bother to read my profile.. I put 20-25 years old for an age range, but like 90% of the men that i heard from were over 40 and many were in their 60's. I also get the impression that a lot of them thing that because I'm trans, that I'm desperate or something. I just want an easier way to meet guys that know upfront. It would be nice to skip the "talk."

    Annoying things that annoying guys say on social sites.
    One of the members here recently was feeling down (I hope that you feel better today:) and discouraged. One of the things was that men are sending her unwanted friend requests and messages on social sites.

    This is such an annoyance for transgender women and makes us all to aware how we can be objectified as fetish objects by a certain type of guy who don't really see us as real people, let alone women. Sometimes you just get so fed up with it, and at the wrong time, it can really get to you. They all seem to say and ask the same or similar things which can run the spectrum from ignorant, to insulting, to just so creepy that you feel like you need to take a shower after reading them. I'm thinking why not have some fun at these creep's expense. I'm going to list some of the typical things, usually the opening line from a message that I've gotten. Tell me if it sounds familiar and add some of the ones that you've gotten, ok? Of course, I can't include the more X rated comments that I've gotten.

    1. You a tranny?
    2. I'm curious and want to "try" a tranny, you want to be my first?
    3. Do you Skype?
    4. Text me. 555 555 5555.
    5. Send me pictures.
    6. Send me naked pictures.
    7. Do you still have "it?"
    8. Is 67 too old? (I'm 19)
    9. Give me your number. (like I'm going to give a complete stranger my phone#!)
    10. Give me your phone number and I'll send you a picture of my.....
    11. What are you wearing?
    12. Do you have boobs?
    13. How big is your....
    14. Hi, do you like me?
    15. I'm on he down low, do you want to be my secret thing? (yeah, I want to be somebody's "thing")

    There are so many more that are probably worse, and many too creepy to say here on tgguide. These are a few that I've heard over and over. On a dating site that I tried recently, some of the user names tell you right up front what these guys are all about. I also can't write most of those here, but for example, how many girls are looking to meet a guy that calls himself "freakdude69?"

    It can be so frustrating, I so understand why this gets to other girls. At first i was actually a little flattered that guys were (I thought) interested in me, but I got onto what they were about and really got so sick of it.

    So girls, are there any particularly weird, clumsy, funny or bizarre things that guys have said to you? At least things that you can say here, but nothing to "graphic."

    Again, I'm leaving out those that are too creepy, sexually graphic or disgusting....which are most of the comments that girls like us get.
    La la la:)))

    Hey Lisa:)

    Sorry to hear that things have gotten to you today. I had one of those days not too long ago and wrote a long blog entry about it. It's definitely good to get it out. Some people just try to make themselves feel better by making others feel bad. The ones that get really mean have the biggest issues. I had one guy reply to a comment I made on youtube, telling me that he hopes that I will die soon. The sex creeps just seem to be everywhere online. That's the reason I've deleted most of my accounts on transgender social sites. You can limit who can send you messages and friend requests on Facebook, but there's no way to stop all of the unwelcome requests.

    There's a lot of support out there though, try to focus on friends and our amazing community when it gets bad.
    Just remember to kill them with a smile:)

    It's like Taylor Swift says:

    Cause the players gonna play, play, play
    And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate
    Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake
    Shake it off, shake it off:)))

    Also Lisa, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend.

    Feel better soon!

    The health drawbacks on the fiber mascara? I do know that it occasionally irritates my eyes when a fiber gets int them.

    Kristi, krista, close enough:))) I haven't used Lash xtrme, but I do use other mascaras with lengthening fibers. I currently use Illegal Lengths along with a volumizing and curling mascara. My lashes are very straight and won't hold a curl well. One of the best curling mascaras that I've used is Supercurl by Urban Decay.

    Do you know of anyone that has tried lash implants? I'd be interested in how that turned out:)))

    Thanks for you comment :)

    OK, so this isn't a really serious topic, but it's about something that bugs me about myself. My eyelashes. I have short, thin lashes. I tried just about every mascara or combination of mascaras out there. I also wear false natural looking lashes sometimes, but it's another hassle that I don't need. One thing I really envy is when I see a woman with really long, beautiful, thick lashes. I have been thinking about Latisse or lash implants for a long time. Latisse is a prescription and you have to use it for life or you lose the growth. It's also somewhat expensive. Implants sound kind of scary. Has anyone tried either?

    Hi Warren, I'm sorry to hear about the difficulties with your family. Support is so important and so many don't get enough from the people in their lives that matter most. I hope that you won't give up on your family, sometimes acceptance and support take time. On the bright side, I'm happy for you that work is going well.

    Thank you Emma:) I do know of Brynn Tannenhill and saw her speech. I think it was called "I Am Real." It was so inspiring and helped reinforce my attitude about facing critics with understanding, patience and education. I remember one things she said, "If you wrestle with pigs, you get dirty and the pigs like it."
