It’s tough out there for anybody to find love, but perhaps more so for people who feel they are in the wrong body. Meet Erin Anderson. The 22-year-old recently transitioned from male to female and finally found love with a man who had rejected her before her transformation!

Erin first approached the object of her affection, 28-year-old Jared Norris, on Facebook. She says she knew of him and thought he was cute, so added him as a friend but Jared didn’t reciprocate. Of course, this was when Erin was still living as Aaron, and Jared wasn’t interested.

If you’d like to see Erin and Jared discuss what their relationship is like, check out the video below where they address plenty of the questions they get asked about their life together:

Two years later, Erin had transitioned after having breast augmentation and hormone replacement therapy. It was at this point that she and Jared reconnected. “He liked one of my pictures on Instagram – by that time I had come out as trans and a woman,” Erin explained.

She continued, “I decided I was going to be upfront, so I sent him a message with my number and within five minutes, I got a message from him and we started talking.
