I'm relatively new to this forum and it's time to introduce myself.

I'm Olivia, live in Sweden. (I hope my English text can be understood). I find it difficult to meet like-minded people here in Sweden (not in Stockholm or Göteborg). Cross-dressing is still a bit 'taboo' here. Therefore I prefer foreign forums where I feel free. I have kept my cross-dressing as a secret for a long time, until a couple of years ago when I revealed it all.

I have never felt like a "real man". As a child I prefered playing alone because I couldn't play with other boys. Girls didn't want to play with me because I was a boy. As a child, I was jealous of the girls' long hair, make-up and nice clothes.

In adulthood, I have had difficulty expressing myself, e.g. in terms of dress and hairstyle, has always disliked men's clothes and short haircuts. Nowadays I use women's clothes, but neutral simple clothes, e.g. jeans and t-shirt. I don't even want to cut down the nails anymore, only shaping them. I allows hair to grow freely and uses hair colors.

I have always struggled with low self confidence, which have impaired my ability to find friends. When I meet other "normal" men in social situations I feel uncomfortable, I don't feel like that when I'm in a social situation with women, I feel more relaxed.

My self confidence is now getting better, after I have speak with a few persons about my cross- dressing, showed some of my female clothes and make up, and also use neutral female clothes when outdoors. In this outfit I feel almost immortal.

Now I am trying out different styles, buys a lot of clothes at online second-hand markets, but also from cheap stores where I also find make-up and accessories.

Hey girl!

Welcome to CDH 🙂

Your English is perfect - and what a wonderful introduction you've given.

So much of it strikes a chord with me. I'm trans, but when I was growing up I wasn't even aware that that was a thing. I wanted to be a girl, and like you I was jealous of their hair and clothes and well ... everything about them. When I hit puberty I didn't know WHAT I was; how could I want to be a girl so badly and yet still be attracted to them? It didn't make any sense to me at all.

As the male self I've presented to society all my life I'm reserved and lacking in self-confidence; as Ellie I'm bouncy and full of life. And I also feel uncomfortable around men and much, much prefer the company of women.

I keep my nails and hair long, and from July when I take early retirement colouring my hair is definitely going to feature in my future.

So ... I get it!

I especially like this quote:

... and also use neutral female clothes when outdoors. In this outfit I feel almost immortal.


Så välkommen igen till CDH. Du har hittat en ny familj!
