Today we're taking a look at a personals site called Date a Crossdresser. In a world full of straight and gay dating sites, it's nice to find a site dedicated to transvestites and crossdressers. There are also pre-op and non-op transsexuals with listings, so you can find all sorts of trannies and CDs here. Some are glamorous and sexy, some look like your average woman on the street, and some are men who simply love to dress as women.
Some of the trannies and CDs here are looking for relationships or sex with men, some are bisexual and open to anything, and some are looking for women. There's a lot of variety when it comes to what members are looking for. After some browsing, I found that there are people looking for anything from a long-term relationship to friendship to an afternoon quickie.
Search for free members allows you to search by whether you're a man, woman or crossdresser looking for a man, woman or crossdresser. You can search by age range, city or zip code, distance and whether or not your results must have photos. The site says that paid members get 31 search options, but it doesn't mention what those options might be - possibly things like hair color, height and personal or sexual preferences.
Now let's talk about the differences between paid and free memberships. Free members can see who's online now, do searches, check their in boxes for messages, post a profile and post pics in it, view other members' profiles and some pics. Paid members can take part in the forum, send messages to other members, take part in video chat, access all members' photos, send emails and flirts and browse in stealth mode. Unlike some dating / hookup sites, there are no levels of membership here; whether you pay for a month or 90 days, you get access to the same features. I did find that the 90 day membership is a much better deal than the monthly membership.
An interesting feature here is called RapidMatch. This is like a hot or not sort of feature, where you are shown the kind of members that you said you were interested in your profile. You are shown a pic that links to that member's profile, and are asked whether you like that member - you can choose Yes, Maybe or No. This is an interesting way to browse and get a look at a variety of trannies and CDs, and it's fun, too.
There are a couple potential issues worth mentioning. First, there's a pre-checked offer for a porn site trial on the join page, but you can untick it if you wish. Also there are links that seem like part of the site that actually lead to other sites you must sign up for to use.
Date a Crossdresser delivers a nice selection of crossdressers and transsexuals plus the men and women who are into them. I'm in Los Angeles, and I found 500 crossdressers and trannies in my area, although results will vary a great deal depending on your location. The site is well organized, so it's easy to get around, and while free members will periodically be asked to upgrade if they try to use features reserved for paying members, there's still a lot for all members, free and paid. I'd say this is a good site for looking for crossdressers, TV's or TS's.
