Someone clocked me as trans on a dating app and it severely triggered my depression and thoughts of never passing
Anyone do anything to make themselves feel more masculine ever? I think feeling like a guy would help a lot right now

    Have you thought of changing what deodorant or perfume you use? The cent could help ground you since it can be a more or less masculine scent depending on how you feel in the moment

    I'm not Trans, but people sometimes mistake me for a guy, but only from behind because I have such short hair... I know this is not the same, but sometimes I worry about guys not liking me because I am not traditionally feminine, though I do identify as cisgender. As I've grown more confident in myself, I've realized that if a guy is not attracted to me or judges me for my appearance, they are not someone I want to be with anyway. It still stings, but I try to remind myself that I will eventually find someone who likes me for who I am, regardless of what I look like. I hope this is helpful, and I very sincerely apologize if it isn't.

      Basically I'm trying to say that this is more a them problem than a you problem, though I do wish I had an answer to the question you actually asked.

    trans man here; in terms of instant euphoria theres yt videos about lowering your voice that thrilled me w their efficiency. look for ones done by Trans people. in longer term, gel shoe heel inserts worked wonders on my confidence. unfortunately results vary bc what might be affirming to me might not work for you. but i hope it helps regardless. stay strong brother 🙌
