Meredith: I'm a trans woman who's 5'5", so average height for women in the States and shorter than most trans women I know.

As someone who mostly — though not exclusively — dates men, I feel like my height has helped me a lot with dating, because men unconsciously perceive me as "normal," and I don't activate their unconscious transphobia as badly.

That's not to say that tall men are better, but that my own physical size didn't restrict me to any specific height range within the straight male population.So, contrary to popular belief, my dating life on the whole has actually been more successful after transition than it was before, as a cis gay man.Back when I identified as a gay man, my short stature was a liability, since the mainstream gay world is into tall, muscular guys.I've been told more than a few times that "there's no way I can tell you're trans," and that helps men feel comfortable dating me.I've even been in a couple of dating situations where people have thought I was kidding when I came out to them as trans.
