I am more “out” than many but not completely “out” and never will be.
So far I have told 6 friends/acquaintances about Fiona & they have all been very accepting and understanding as I knew they would be. I have no intention of telling any other friends/acquaintances at all. Some of them are good friends but I know they would not understand & would be very uncomfortable. They may not shut me out completely but it would fundamentally change the nature of our relationship and I value our friendship too much to let that happen.
In addition to the 6 above, my neighbor on one side of me knows. She caught me fully en femme one day but she is cool with it & doesn’t have a problem. The guy on the other side of me is one who I hope never finds out. As for the rest of the neighbors I don’t really care if they know or not.
I now spend about 80% of my time outside as Fiona and while doing so I have met a few people who discovered I was cross dressing but were fine with it. One has become a nice acquaintance and the other a friend. So while I am relatively open about Fiona with people I meet and don’t care about most neighbors, there is a large percentage of friends and all my family who will never be told.
