Hi Betty. Why do I do it? The short answer is I don’t really know. I do know that I’ve had the temptation to cross dress since my teens but apart from a few odd occasions I never gave in to the urge, and it was never a constant thing anyway. It’s possible my drinking was a substitute for this, I find that since I began dressing last December that I barely drink at all now, and only then if I spend a few days wearing drab. So if wearing dresses is an addiction then I’m finding it somewhat healthier than the alternative.
Could I quit? If I met the love of my life and she was against my dressing I would like to think I could, but as a lifelong loner of 54 I think there would be more serious problems to overcome – I spend far too much time in my own head for a start. The last two years especially.
And anyway, at the moment, I’m having a lot of fun creating Amy. Thanks for your post.
