So today I went by my storage unit just to check up on my stuff. I'm planing on moving everything out of storage soon and wanted to take a quick visual inventory. Next to the storage place are some apts. As I was walking past them after I had left my unit a guy called out to me. He asked me if I wanted a ride. After informing him of where I needed to go(home) and him saying it wasn't a problem I got in his mini-van and we were off. Along the way we chatted, well he asked questions and I tried to answer with more than one word because I'm kinda bad at small talk. He asked when I was off work and what I did on those days and if I would mind if he called me one day. At which point I realized he might be trying to make a date with me. When he asked if I had someone who might get mad if he called I became very sure. I felt a little uncomfortable with the way the conversation was going and I think he sensed that cause he backed off a bit and changed the subject. I did eventually give him my number. I'm not entirely sure why. I think partly it feels good to be wanted. Maybe partly because I've got no other prospects.
I'm a little scared though. What did he see me as? Did he see me as a man? Did he see me as a woman? I'm fairly certain he saw me as a man. I'm honest enough with myself to know I don't pass yet. But part of me clings to the mad crazy idea that somehow he saw me as a woman. I'm scared because what if he did and I tell him I'm trans and (every bad thing that could happen because a cis man thought he was 'fooled' by a trans woman) happens. What if he saw me as a man and I tell him and he isn't interested anymore?
What if I tell him I'm transgender and it doesn't change anything?
He has my number so the ball is in his court so to speak. I'm going to try my hardest to put this out of my mind and not feel bad if he doesn't call.
Goddess I wish my sister was here so I could talk to her about this.
Going to cry myself to sleep think of my sister,
