Hi Marie, thank you for sharing that story, and may I add it is so wonderful that you are making such an effort to support and understand your partner. So many of us can be very sensitive and brittle when it comes to being critiqued. Spending time and doing things together must make them feel so much more accepted! However, do not dismiss your own feelings of dress, not everyone likes getting “all dressed up”. As you respect their desire to dress up, they should also respect your desire to dress down, as it were. Everyone has different tastes in fashions, to each their own, right?
And you are arranging a pro trans night out for the two of you. Bless you for making such an effort!! That is an incredible effort you are making. 🤗
