One woman is revealing how her Tinder girlfriend that she met online became her beloved husband.
The incident occurred last minute, pre-wedding when he revealed how he was born with the ‘wrong gender.’ However, that didn’t prevent her heart from falling for him. And today, the couple is happily married while promoting other trans individuals to come forward with their stories.
Here are more details on the rather shocking incident of a female turning into a male, just months before the wedding day.
Woman reveals how her Tinder girlfriend is now her husband
Chase and Elan Storey are a beautiful couple and while you just might think they’re like everyone else, we beg to differ. And here’s why.
Elan Storey hails from Calgary, Alberta. And she’s going viral with her story of how she met her Tinder girlfriend, who is actually now her husband. Yes, both members of the couple were identified as women at the start of their relationship. And it all goes back to the year 2017.
With that being said, this couple tied the knot last year with a rather shocking turn of events. They were now man and wife and it’s all thanks to 28-year-old Chase.
Yes, Chase told his girlfriend how he did not feel comfortable as a female. He didn’t want to be her wife. Instead, he wished to marry her as a husband.
Girlfriend starts testosterone course after ‘wrong gender’ reveal
After breaking the rather shocking news to his Tinder girlfriend Elan, Chase was worried about what her reaction would be.
However, all things proved to be fruitful in the end because Elan accepted Chase and his insecurities.In fact, she motivated him to follow his heart and promised to spend the rest of her life with him.
And it was this point in time where he began his life long course with testosterone hormones. However, the 28-year-old has not undergone any surgical procedures yet.
The unique couple took to social media to share their story while hoping to inspire other trans individuals to come forward. Similarly, they hoped to represent the minorities while providing a platform of support for all partners that belong to the trans-genre.
Elan explains why she longed for a lesbian relationship
But how exactly did this couple get lucky in love? The story is rather fascinating, to say the least.
Elan opened up about her personal life. She described her previous toxic relationship with a cisgender male. Keeping that past in mind, she longed for lesbian love and Tinder was her best shot for success.
Elan and Chase described how they instantly clicked online and they both knew that they had to meet one another.
The 28-year-old female explained to newspapers:
‘His picture was accompanied by six other people. But when I saw him, I was like WOW!’
‘I don’t even know what this person is or what they look like, but I’m swiping it right. Then he matched me at work, and we talked literally all day.’
Chase claims the following:
‘I remember going through Tinder’s database and seeing her profile. I was like this girl is way too beautiful.’
Chase explains how he hid his ‘uncomfortable gender truth’
Chase always told those around him that he was in fact a pure lesbian woman. Moreover, the 28-year-old never felt confident in expressing how uncomfortable he felt with his ‘wrong gender.’
Chase thought no one would ever understand him and that’s why he hid the truth for years. However, he did go on to explain how he attempted to transition, around 10 years ago. But that didn’t work out too great as he never had a good support system that could understand.
The beautiful couple dated for 2 years and got engaged soon. And that’s when he revealed his gender truth. It was like dropping a bombshell while the couple laid in bed.
‘Oh my God, I really don’t want to get married. I would like to be your husband and not your wife.’
And believe it or not, that was it. They embraced each other and married each other, in a number of months.
While meeting support from his Tinder girlfriend, Chase is yet to see the same support from loved ones. He believes they are still adjusting to the shock, just like the rest of the world is.
