I think this is a very interesting topic. Seems like the older we get the less friends we have from age or people moving for careers etc. To be honest friends are valuable and needed. Not just work friend but someone with whom you relate and have equal goals and common ground. If I had a friend who was also a cross dresser then that is just a bonus but it’s not a requirement. Frankly for my female friends I wish they were supportive of me as a cross dresser but that’s also not a requirement. I have moved a lot for my career and at this later age in life a good friend is valuable. That’s just my humble opinion.
