My boyfriend was patient, understanding and never once had an opinion about all the stuff I'm going through. With so much going on in my life, I felt unable to fully commit. Given that I'm now heterosexual, I decided to get on Tinder, which I was told is basically Grindr for straight people with fewer dick-pics. There is a damaging myth that trans people are trying to 'trick' straight men into sex like gender-confused, land-based sirens. Again, having never been on Tinder as a cisgender woman I can't tell you if this is the universal experience of Tinder or not (please do tweet me your experiences), but almost immediately these guys have propositioned me for no-strings 'kinky' sex.

They go on a terrible first date that turns into a tentative, maybe-not-so-terrible romance. Your character operates with this intense self-confidence. In anticipation of meeting you, I was re-reading the story that came out about the Sundance lunch where you got into it with Salma Hayek. And then pull myself up, dust my f*cking outfit off, and get out there.
So while we cannot verify whether the Tweets were actually sent by Woody himself.
Having spent some time focused entirely on me, I felt, about a year ago, that I was ready to 'get back out there' and try to meet that special someone.

I am really comfortable with myself as a guy, so I often joke about my transition with my girlfriend and friends.
