10036) I had been on 5 dates with my boyfriend, and we're starting to get serious.

I decided it was time to be honest and say that I was trans. I tested the waters and he seemed accepting of trans issues so I felt safe disclosing. So, I told him that I am a trans woman. There was a long, awkward pause and he didn’t say anything, so I got really scared. Then he finally said, “Actually, I’m glad you brought this up. I’ve been waiting for the right time to tell you I’m a trans man.”
