How to Determine the Gender of Your Date
Blind dates are fine if you looking to meet a nice woman/man. But what if you don't know his/her gender? Although many people are upfront about being trans-gendered they're are a few who may try to deceive. Keep reading for tips on how to tell if your date is keeping a gender secret.
1. Look at her (or his) hand. Compare the length of your date’s fourth and second fingers. Most men have ring fingers that are conspicuously longer than their index fingers, whereas most women have ring fingers that are close to the same length. Testosterone levels likely account for the greater length.
* Look for very large hands.
* Also take notice of the amount of hair on your date’s knuckles, hands, and forearms.
* Most men will have visible, dark hair (or signs of recently removed hair) on their hands and wrists, and sometimes knuckles.
2. Try to notice the feet. Your feet do not shrink during transgendering. Look for larger, wider feet.
3. Be suspicious of baggy clothing. Your intended may be trying to conceal a telltale bulge
but this may be hard to notice in a skirt or dress.
4. Look for an Adam’s apple. Most men have a bump in the middle of their throat. Most women do not.
* Many man will use thick choker necklaces, neck bands, or make attempts to cover their Adam's apple. Some have had this removed surgically. There might be a slight visible scar.
5. Observe shoulders and hips. Men’s shoulders tend to be broader than their hips, while women’s hips and shoulders tend to be closer to the same width. Do not be fooled by shoulder pads.
6. Follow your target up a flight of stairs. Take note of how she (or he) moves while ascending. Men tend to walk in a more “straight ahead” motion with minimal “wobbling” back and forth. Women tend to sway a bit from side to side, due to the position of their pelvises. Women also tend to lean forward slightly.
7. See which bathroom they go to at a public place. "Womens" or "Mens". Don't let this fool you. Chances are good they will use the image appropriate restroom. These people likely live their life as a woman, expect to be treated socially as a woman and behave as women.
8. Look for excessive makeup. Although most new women will try to look as natural as possible many over compensate by wearing almost mask like makeup, heavy eyebrow detailing, heavy eyeshadow and pancake or very thick foundation. Remember that those born women may also wear heavy makeup. It isn't a given that everyone in heavy makeup is transexual.
9. Be courteous and don't make accusations regarding their sex. There's nothing worse than being wrong and offending someone. It's equally wrong to judge someone before knowing the facts. Many transition individuals choose to wait until they know someone before sharing those personal details. It isn't deception when they don't tell you, it's usually self-preservation.
* Look for at least three of these characteristics before you draw conclusions about your date’s gender, then make your plans accordingly.
* Voice is not always a good indicator of gender -— a low voice may simply be the result of hard living.
* If you're having difficulty determining the gender of your date in the first place, you might want to ask someone else out instead.
