I was 19 years old. I met a transgirl on an online game on the computer. She told me she had already transitioned and was going to have her genital surgery (SRS) the next year. She was the first person i ever told that i was possibly transgender. She also said to me that i shouldn’t be so scared about transitioning and that the best i could do is to just sign up at a gender clinic. Sadly enough, that didn’t take away my fears. I didn’t want to be transgender, i just wanted to be a normal guy. If i was transgender i had to turn my whole life around, and at that moment i didn’t really like that idea.
If you’re out there pauseeee (her ingame name), thanks for informing me at this age, it helped me later on to accept myself for who i am.
