But not every transgender person wants to be this open.

On Tinder, users swipe right on photos of people they think are attractive and left on those they don’t like.

This means photos are far and away the most important part of a dating profile, and Snyder complained that cuteness isn’t necessarily “an indicator of compatibility.” Sleidi appreciated Snyder’s critique and she signed on to help him create a new dating website called Mesh.

Like OKCupid, Mesh has an algorithm that helps determine compatibility. If you specify characteristics or preferences you don’t want potential dates to have (Republican, vegan, straight), Mesh will block those people from seeing your profile.

On Mesh, people only see a trans person’s profile if they’ve already indicated they’re open to dating transgender people.

This has the potential to make online dating more thorough and more fruitful, but safety and acceptance for trans people who date online may take more than an algorithm.

As La Mon noted, it all comes down to “the age-old question of when you disclose” your transgender identity.

Winter La Mon is a 28-year-old transgender man who lives in New York City.
