I met my wife when I was working in Mexico. I agree she wouldn’t have been attracted to me if she had met me while I was dressed (which wasn’t that much of an option then because I had purged my wardrobe before I moved there). Culturally, it was just too far out there.
After we started dating, I slowly started talking to her about it and actually talked her into making me up one night. She thought it was different, and wondered if I was gay, but was pretty open minded about it.
There have been some ups and downs along the way. I purged once or twice when she was feeling less comfortable with my dressing. As time has gone by, she’s accepted Petra and developed a really good eye for what looks good on me. We even managed a girls night out at a fancy hotel.
