Select your gender identity
Part of creating a profile is selecting your gender identity. We know this list doesn't reflect the full spectrum of identity. We ask you to select the one you most closely identify with so we can suggest more relevant matches.
The gender identity option are:
  • Woman
  • Man
  • Let me be more specific
    • Cis woman
    • Trans woman
    • Cis man
    • Trans man

If you identify as trans, you need to select who can see your profile. For example, if you selected Trans [gender] as your gender identity, you can choose:
  • Everyone: they are interested in dating cis, trans and non-binary people.
  • All [gender]: they are interested in dating both cis and trans [gender].
  • Trans [gender]: they are interested in dating trans [gender], but not cis [gender].
