One day I met a man who helped me redefine what my sexuality means to me. This guy, whom I will refer to as "James," was attractive: He had this way with words, and a smile that took my breath away. James happens to be transgender; he was assigned "female" at birth.

Pretty much anyone on a dating website with a job and basic hygiene can seem worthy of a second date, but take it from me, DON'T DO IT on Valentine's Day. Do yourself a favor and avoid the awkwardness by pretending you didn't see their text.
