I just typed all this out on my profile and found out these groups exist, so I suppose I'll just copy/paste what I've already got... it's kind of a lot for a first post 😅 The short version is I'm a 32-year-old trans guy looking for any sort of family connection, especially parental, but I'm open to anything. ❤️
Hey there! My name's Fletcher, and I'm a 32-year-old omnisexual trans man who's just starting his transition journey. I've been in a relationship with my boyfriend (a pansexual trans man) for a little while now, and he's doing a lot of inspiring me to get my life together in a lot of ways - finding the courage to get a job, the motivation to find a therapist and start medications for mental illnesses... he's just inspiring me to do a lot more for myself.
I've been doing a lot of thinking about how he doesn't have any family to meet on my side of things... I've gone no contact with every family member I had, and there were a lot of reasons for that before they ever knew I was a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I've sustained a lot of trauma from my blood family... and up to now, I've just been trying to tough things out and convince myself that I don't need family to get by. But the honest truth is that my heart aches for the connections I never had. I would love to have some sort of parental connection in my life so I could just talk about how our days went, vent about whatever's on our minds, talk to them about my boyfriend and eventually admit to them that I'm planning to ask him to marry me... and I'd love to have someone there for me to see us on our wedding day.
I know my aspirations here are a bit uhm... potentially overwhelming (and I'm also a bit late to be looking for some sort of parental presence in my life - didn't realize this site existed until today)... but I'm adamant that I only want to pursue a bond like that if it feels genuine. I want it to feel right for everyone involved, y'know? But yeah, feel free to reach out if you'd like to get to know me a little bit. Thank you for reading all this. ❤️ I hope you're doing well!
