Interesting thread, and I think we see the spectrum of CDH here!
I wondered a bit about this in the past when I was coming out as a CD, would I switch attractions with the switch of exterior? Then I went out fully en femme and feeling like a woman inside (and looking like one outside I hope) and bingo! The only people I felt attracted to were women, partly “what a nice skirt!”, but I can also recognise that warm tingle inside which I never get with men. I haven’t tried a relationship with a woman as a woman/CD, really the whole CD thing is more than sex for me so I can skip that for now.
I was out en femme this morning when a stunning girl passed me on the street, mixed emotions of “wow! Love the outfit and make-up!” coupled to an inner stirring of desire for her as a woman. If there is any confusion it was simultaneously wondering what that outfit she was wearing would feel like on me, and what it would feel like holding her in my arms. Make sense?
