I don’t think there was any one thing. My father wasn’t what you would call a “man’s man”, he really didn’t have a fatherly influence when he grew up, so it just sort of transferred downward. I was close to my mom. My mother was the more dominate parent in our house. Neither were mean or abusive to me though. I was just always drawn to girly type of things, especially clothing, I am still crazy about delicate lace items. I tried the male dominated sports, i.e. football, etc. I was an average participant, wasn’t real thrilled about any of them, I was more envious of the female cheerleaders and wanted to be one. I started at a young age doing things that were considered female in aspect. I could sew (machine & hand) knit, crochet, bake, cook, etc. at an early age, and back then that wasn’t considered what a guy should do. I enjoy being around females a lot more than males. I have always felt like a girl. A friend’s older sisters used to dress me up in their clothes and we’d play house, or tea, something like that. It was fun and one of my fondest memories.

- Meeting my Current wife October 20, 2020
Meeting my current wife seven years ago gave me hope. I was divorced for a year at the time and was in the dumps—big time. Relationships didn't last at all before I met her. It had been terrible, and I thought about giving up, throwing in the towel. Encouragement came with the ...
- Living a Childhood Dream – A Ballet Story October 16, 2020
Like many of you, I’ve had the urge to dress up in all the fun and exciting clothing that cis women get to enjoy ever since I was a child. Lovely pink dresses, satin ribbons, and the cutesiest hairbands. These were all things I wished that I’d had the chance to experience as ...
