We at My Ladyboy Date are die hard technology lovers. That’s why back in 2015 we already wanted to play our part in the cryptocurrency revolution and offer our members the option to pay by Bitcoin (the mother of all cryptocurrencies).
Thanks to our partner Coinbase, we are now able to also accept payments by Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin, which are the three other major cryptocurrencies after Bitcoin.
It’s been almost a year since our last language update (Italian, Thai and German were added last April 2014). Well, yesterday we just released the new Chinese version of My Ladyboy Date! Note that this is only Chinese Mandarin Simplified, the variant used in mainland China and Singapore, which still means 1.2 billion people. We also want to translate the site into Mandarin Traditional (used in Taiwan) and Cantonese (Hong Kong), this will come later.
Now that’s a point of grammar that will either get trans organisations to issue a fatwa (against me, as usual) or maybe make them agree with me (for once). I’m personally fond of studying languages and how they evolve through time (latin languages being my favourites). I believe languages are not set in stone and evolve through time, and that words are tied to the culture of those who use them (and that the same word can be understood and felt differently from a place or another, as for the example of “ladyboy” which would get any transsexual upset in the USA, but is perfectly owned and employed by Thais). And that’s making our world beautiful 🙂
Hi readers! It’s been a while I didn’t post in the Product Updates category for announcing our technical improvements. So here it is. First, let me tell you that since I cleaned and normalised the geocoding of all the profiles, I could draw the statistic that we have members in 3 200 cities across 172 countries. That’s not bad, and we will keep on growing and reaching new places 🙂
That can sound obvious to some people, but for most newbies (I mean, men who are new to dating Asian ladyboys) reading this article can save you some money and some heart breaking!
I learnt a lot myself since I open my dating site for ladyboys, not just about the technical aspects, but also about people. Why would you ever send money to a ladyboy you meet online anyways? You probably never sent money like this to the women you dated back in your home country (in Europe, or in America…) right? When you date a woman, sure you’re going to pay the restaurant bill or the cinema ticket, but it’s not like the woman becomes instantly depending on your for her basic needs, like paying her rent or her electricity, it just doesn’t make sense.
If you are a ladyboy, transgender woman, transwoman, whatever label you like… or if, like me, you are a man with a trans girlfriend or interesting in getting a trans girlfriend, this is a topic that’s good knowing 🙂
I apologise in advance because we have for habit to make videos that are not longer than 3 or 4 minutes, and gender identity is a topic that requires way more time for being covered in its entirety. But in this short video, we are presenting you a short overview of what’s gender identity, applied to transgender women (which is, after all, our core topic on this blog!)
Gender identity… To explain to you gender identity, I will first explain other notions that are closely related to it, which are: biological sex, gender role and finally gender identity.
In this article, sorry if I’m not going to talk about dating, nor am I going to talk about transwomen either!
You are all aware of the recent events that occurred in the Philippines this November, the typhoon Haiyan that stroke South East Asia and really badly hit part of the Philippines, where the death toll counts in thousands, and the situation is now just going to get even worse and worse.
If you’re of the generation Y (maybe even generation Z) you probably couldn’t escape from the ChatRoulette phenomenon and all its copycat sites and variants (ChatRoulette for dating, ChatRoulette for gays, ChatRoulette for cyber sex, ChatRoulette in French, Italian, Spanish whatever other languages…). Being myself a pretty young lad fond of Internet technologies, I can tell you that I already spent some hours (nights) randomly speaking to strangers on such websites.
If you’re not familiar with the concept, these are websites where you are randomly put in front of another person and start a webcam chat with him or her. You don’t know that person, she doesn’t know you and you probably live miles apart. Which is a pretty cool shyness inhibitor and easy way starting a conversation with a perfect stranger. If you don’t like the conversation anymore, you can simply click the “Next” button and you will be facing another random stranger instantly.
The annoying thing with ChatRoulette-like sites, it’s that this anonymity comes to a price: many people take advantage on this for doing nasty things, and you might end up seeing more genitals that you ever seen before. Well, still fun but will you get to actually meet someone on such sites? People go on video chat websites for fun, few would consider this option for meeting someone.
As a dating site for ladyboys (and advocates as well), we are pretty much critical about the industry of online dating for transwomen.
Online dating is awesome. Nowadays, everybody dates online! Literally breaking the constraints of space and time, it gives you the opportunity to meet people that you would never meet otherwise. And for transgenders, that’s even more important, because you don’t meet men who like transgenders at every corner of the street (and you don’t meet transgenders at every corner of the street either). There are bars and clubs yeah, but some don’t take part of it, and it’s still very very limited. So, online it is!
And however, online dating for transgenders is quite broken.
(Video is at the end of the article)
If there is a question that comes very often, whether it’s asked to transgenders themselves, or asked to men who like transgenders, it’s definitely that one! Does it make you gay, if you are attracted to transsexuals?
The answer is not as straight forward as you might think. And actually, what does it mean to be “gay”? Are straight and gay two strictly distinct categories, and everybody falls into one or the other? At what point does dating transsexuals make you fall from the straight category into the gay category?
