Girlfriend of trans guy in need of someone to talk to

(1/4) > >>

Hi, I'm not really sure how these things work but I sort of need some help

I just need someone to talk to who can give unbiased opinions and advice!

I am a cis girl in a relationship with a trans guy, we have been in a relationship for about 2 and a half years and I love him with all of my heart. However, throughout the relationship I have really had times where I could really benefit from talking to someone about how I feel about certain things, but he won't let me talk to any of my friends or family as he is uncomfortable with me talking about anything trans-related. I obviously understand and would never unload onto someone who he was uncomfortable with knowing about our situation, it's just extremely hard at times as the situation we are in is taking a toll on our relationship.
I don't want to go into too much detail here, but if someone is willing to just being someone to talk to and give their honest thoughts on my own thoughts I would be eternally grateful!

I'm sorry for the random post, I don't even know if this is the right place to post it, but I can't find anywhere online for partners of trans people who need support too

Idk if there's a way I could privately message someone, but if anyone is willing to talk then please let me know somehow! Whether it be through replying to this post or commenting (again I have no idea how this works!) I would be forever thankful

Hope you're all having a lovely day or night x

Even though I'm a transman, I have no problems talking to you.  What is it that is bothering you?

And to be honest, it sounds like you should look for a local support group for the partners of transgender people.  You need to talk to someone, and its not very fair that you are "not allowed" to have anyone to talk to.  Try your local LGBT+ center, maybe they know of a local spouses/partners/allies of transgender people group where you can find support.

Good luck.

Hi Starburst, Susan’s Place is a resource for everyone that has questions about being transgender.  Answers are given freely based on personal experiences, documented truths and a lot of trying to figure it out.  I’m confident that you can and will find answers that will at least point you in the right direction.
We are here for you.  The support from significant others is critical to us, as much as ours is for them.

I moved this thread to a better forum that is for thoughts and comments of Significant Others and for those that can help them.

I see that our lovely Northern Star*Girl @Alaskan Danielle has greeted you with her charm and grace.  She also provided some very helpful links to information that will help you have the best experience here.
Please give them a look see.

Hugs, Jessica 🌸🌸🌸
