I wanted to give speed dating a shot, but some of these sites that have you pay before the event don't look very 'legit' to me.
So I'm asking here if anyone knows of any speed dating events around the Triangle, preferably Raleigh/Fuquay area. There are a few groups in the area that are focused around it - I've done it once (managed to have the opportunity for free) and it was fun, but I'm not sure I'd pay to do it again.

Q: I've told men up front that I'm male-to-female trans (I date straight guys), and I've also waited until longer into the relationship, and I still don't know which is the better approach.

Like most babysitting services, Select Sitters requires interviews and background checks for all caregiver candidates.As an intern with the Research Triangle Foundation, I am fortunate to be able to attend many of the events that the Foundation puts on.During my first week in the position, I went through the calendar of events on our website and chose which ones I would like to participate in.In the past, many transgender people received advice from health care providers that they should keep their trans status hidden at all costs.Today, however, there is a growing understanding that it can take a heavy emotional toll to feel obliged to conceal such an important aspect of a person's life.
