“I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.”

This is just something I’ve found interesting lately. It probably means nothing, but it could actually be an indicator of my trans-ness. (Oh yeah, if you weren’t there when I came out before, I’m one of the few people here who are trans. Surprise!)

I’ve dated three girls seriously, and I’ve very closely associated with a few others romantically. All as a man. Now, here’s the weird thing:

Of the five who I believe I seriously loved and who seriously loved me back, two have since come out as bisexual..... and the other three are straight-up lesbians.

Considering that (according to a 2014 government survey) roughly just 3% of people are gay, and even less are bisexual (these are based on self-identification, so I’m sure the closeted numbers are significantly higher, but it’s still way less than you might think), the chance of this happening with any random 5 people is approximately 0.00000013%. (Seriously, it’s that low. 3%×3%×3%×0.7%×0.7%. Even if we assume there’s a 10% chance of being gay or bi, that’s 0.1^5, which is 0.00001, or 0.001%. Keep in mind, this is for a random sample.)

So, yeah. I think it’s fair to assume that I was able to attract these people based on my femininity, or just by giving off a comforting female vibe. It probably means nothing, but still. The chance of it happening *at random* is virtually nonexistent. There HAS to be a reason for it.

Random follow-up question, because I’m curious: how many of you got a female sort of impression of me before finding all this out? Be honest; if you assumed I was just a regular guy, that won’t bother me. I’m just curious.
