Dylan Mulvaney is ready to find love.
As the wildly popular TikTok influencer approaches her 365th day being a girl, the desire to have her first kiss as a girl builds.
Dylan Mulvaney Is Excited To Start Dating As A Trans Woman
Since starting her journey back in March 2022 and documenting each day of being a girl in a series of videos on TikTok, Mulvaney, 26, has accomplished many things. One big thing she did was have female feminization surgery. One thing she hasn’t done yet, get her first kiss as a girl.
Mulvaney recently told PEOPLE that she’s getting a “little impatient” about that first kiss. “I’m getting a little impatient because, especially when you’re feeling yourself and even looking at the Grammys picture, I’m like, that’s somebody who should not be single,” she said. “But then you’re like, wait, why is no on in the DMs?”
But Mulvaney doesn’t want to kiss just anyone. There’s some pressure to make it really count. “I very much feel like I get a do-over as far as some of those negative experiences that I have had romantically,” she said. “And I want to do it right this time.”
In a recent TikTok video, Mulvaney tackles the topic of starting to date, captioned, “DYLAN DOES DATING update.”
“Well, there’s not much new to report. I still haven’t been kissed as a girl and I assumed that I would have had that happen before day 365, but every day I’m realizing that probably won’t happen, and it’s okay,” she said while enjoying a bubble bath. “We’re okay here, all is well.”
She continued to explain that she has put herself out there asking her friends to set her up and is on dating apps.
“I mean I finally got on Raya and after like four years on the wait list. I would match with someone and get all excited and then get unmatched, and I was like what kind of sick game is this? Haven’t I been through enough?,” she explained.
“I do have like two or three prospective dates, but here’s the thing, I can go on one of these dates as the first one and I could even kiss the person, but what if they ghost me after that?”
Mulvaney explained that she’s not okay giving her first kiss as a girl away to a random person, so she was thinking about an alternative situation.
“There’s an odd amount of pressure and I know it’s all in my head, but I was wondering if it might be a good idea to make my first kiss with someone fun that I know already, or like a sweet friend’s kiss or someone silly or like super memorable, so that I don’t feel as much pressure when it comes time to like have the romantic one, you know what I mean?,” she asked her followers.
Dylan Mulvaney Knows What She Wants!
Mulvaney knows what she’s looking for and what she wants in her life as far as a relationship. “I really want somebody to make me laugh because so much of starting to succeed and have these great things come has been a little serious at times, having to put this businesswoman hat on,” she said.
“But I think once I do meet that person that can add some levity, add some lightness back into my life and I know that I can make them laugh in the same way, that is going to be chef’s kiss.”
While the influencer wonders if maybe her sudden rise to fame is a deterrent for some people who are on dating apps, she’s not going to stop sharing her life. But she also has no desire to tell the world everything about any future relationships.
“I’ve gotten on these apps now, and I think there’s something daunting about the fact that I am so public about my life,” she said. “I don’t want to be airing out all of my relationship dirty laundry, a la Carrie Bradshaw vibes.”
Day 365 Of Being A Girl Is Almost Here!
Day 365 of being a girl is just around the corner and Mulvaney has something big planned to celebrate the day. Marking the one-year anniversary, Mulvaney will be hosting a variety show in New York City at the Rainbow Room on March 13. While this will be an invitation only event, it will be live streamed for anyone interested in watching from home for just $5, with all proceeds going to The Trevor Project.
“When I pictured this day, I saw it as a coming-out debutante ball, but I also saw it as a birthday party, a talk show, a standup show,” Mulvaney told PEOPLE. “I put it all together into a one-night-only, 1960s-style variety show at the top of Rockefeller Center. And I’m not going to lie, I can’t think of anything better to do that day.”
This event will also mark the first time Mulvaney is back on a stage performing. “This will actually be the first time that I’m back on stage, but in my proper gender identity,” she said. “Hopefully my followers will be really excited to see me do the thing that I want to do most.”
