Your scenario describes my life story almost exactly up to the point where I told my wife. She has been accepting of my crossdressing since I told her. She says she loves me and it doesn’t matter what I wear. I guess I am one of the lucky ones. I should add that was never dressed as a girl as a child except by my own hand. Although I think I might have had fantasies about someone dressing me. I did however play with girls a lot as a child, I’m not sure if it was by accident or design. I believe that they were just the friends neighbors or relatives that happen to be around.
Thank you for the interesting article
