- Born Aaron, 22-year-old transgender Erin, recently revealed how she met her boyfriend
- According to her story, she had approached him on Facebook before her transition but he turned her down
- The story however changed, after she transitioned
A transgender woman has shared her journey to finding love. Born Aaron, the 22-year-old revealed that she knew she was born in the wrong body as a three-year-old, when she began wearing her grandmother's high heels.
Now a blonde woman identified as Erin Anderson, she takes a journey down memory lane towards finding happiness in love. According to Erin, she approached her long time crush, Jared Norris, on Facebook when she was 18 and still living as a man but he wasn't interested.
However, cupid worked its magic when 2 years after Erin had come out and seven months into her course of hormone replacement therapy, Jared, 28, liked one of her Instagram pictures, and the couple struck up a romance.
It has been two years since the couple started dating and they have been going strong despite the cruel messages they receive from trolls online.
In a bid to increase her feminine features, Erin, who is happy as a trans woman, says her partner remains indifferent about her undergoing a v*gina construction, which surgeons would carry out traditionally by means of penile inversion.
Speaking on the issue, Jason had this to say: "She wants to look more feminine, but to me she already looks beautiful. I understand it's not about me but at present we couldn't afford surgery for her to become fully female.
I will still love her exactly the same, she is still the same person regardless, I think she looks feminine enough, but understand gender dysphoria is a big thing. I love the fact that she is willing to be herself even with the ramifications of that, I'm glad she can put herself out there."
