Well that was 20 years ago. I would like to think the world has become more progressive and open minded. If your are nervous about going out in your area, go to a different town. Better yet, once this Covid crisis is behind us, try taking a long weekend visiting places which are friendly to girls like us. It will give you an opportunity to get out, be yourself, and build confidence. Almost forgot, if you don’t feel comfortable being out fully dressed, you can always go out in hybrid mode.
