As many of you know, I am going through a separation/divorce. I don’t want to sit at home having a pity party. I have been getting out in various meet-up groups one of them being the Calgary Christian singles group. I have only attended one event and was my male self when I went.
I have messaged one of the group hosts telling her about Tina. I wanted to get a feel for how the group would react. Although she seemed okay with Tina attending, she was not confident the group would be accepting.
In this group there is an opportunity to meet new friends but also a female companion. It will be extremely difficult to find a CIS-woman that is christian and interested in crossdresser.
The group host was concerned that I could be rejected. She did however say I could come to the annual picnic.
My question to myself is, am I trying to force my way into a situation where crossdressing is not accepted, trying to meet friends as my true self, and/or trying to change peoples thoughts regarding crossdresssers?
Since coming out, I have put myself in many scenarios where rejection is really possible but to this point, I have only been rejected by my parents.
It wouldn’t be catastrophic if I was rejected at this event as I already have so much support from a lot of other people.
Risk or opportunity?
My current situation is a Christian singles group but can apply to any new situation.
