Just here to defend the honor of our site...TransPassions.com
Firstly, I would like to say that I'm honored that someone on this site decided to start a thread about our website...and I'd like to say that I like the Transgenderdate.com site that showed up halfway down the thread about us.
It looks like a nice site, and I'm going to copy all of it's good bits as soon as possible.
Seriously though, I would like to point out a few things.
First, both sites are 100% free and both sites are reaching out to the Trans Community...so I hope everyone here who is looking to meet new people will join both sites.
We are not only 100% free, we are 100% happy that there are more and more sites popping up for the Trans Community.
We've been around for about 3 years now, and we're a work in progress. Despite what some may think of our site, we are pretty proud of it, and it will only get better with time. (That is a promise!)
I would like to respond to a comment about our site not speaking to the Trans Community and just being 'cookie cutter'.
I think the person saying that was referring to the fact that there are over 100+ sites in Passions Network, each with it's own community focus. Each site is for a very specific niche, although they all have the same basic navigation and layout. The beauty to this approach is that people do not have to define themselves SOLELY as transgendered when they join Passions Network. They can become members of as many sites as they would like, based on who they are, and what their interests are...Shy Passions, Yoga Passions, Movies Passions, OUT Passions, Atheist Passions...and on and on. This is all done with a single account and a single login.
We try very hard to make each site specific to each community, and if you look at the videos posted within Trans Passions, and the 'Groups' available within our site, you should find a site that is speaking directly to the Trans community. We're far from perfect, and we're still working on some key features to make the site even more 'Trans' centric...but it is far from just cookie cutter. (I would have added a pouty emoticon here if they had one.)
I would like to take my hat off to Transgenderdate.com and welcome them to the 'Trans Dating' world...and I hope they can help to bring many many Trans people together.
That is our goal at Trans Passions, and since we're both free, we don't see any reason why there isn't room for each of our sites (and more).
Here's to hoping we all find love in our lives this year!
