“I’m pretty sure I’d run off (badly, in heels) if someone actually tried to properly chat me up. I received some appreciative comments and a few lewd remarks the other evening and while it was exciting it was a little scary if I’m honest. I certainly wasn’t dressed appropriately for my environment!”
Good for you for having the courage to go out when dressed en-femme! When I was young and prettier, I went out dressed a few times. I was in a crossdresser support group and we’d meet at a big house in a bohemian neighborhood and I joined the gurls a few times going out for a walk in the neighborhood and on the town after our meeting was over. There were lesbian and gay bars we’d go to that were pretty safe.
I keep my crossdressing private and at home nowadays. Age has not improved my beauty and I look like an older man in a dress and don’t pass at all. That’s OK and I accept the situation as it is. I was married and lost my wife to cancer a few years back, Cancer sucks! I have to give my wife credit for trying to accept my crossdressing, but it was not her thing and she told me to keep it to myself. After she died, I moved to a new city in the Western US and I have my own place and can crossdress whenever I want, which is nice and a comfort after losing my wife. I also met a lady who accepts me being a crossdresser and I can dress in front of her without feeling shame and she even gave me a feminine outfit for Christmas! Nobody has ever done that for me but her! I consider myself to be a lucky gurl!
