If you don’t mind, I’d like to get some idea of the generational perspectives represented in our community. What is your age?

Hi Cassie I started dressing pre puberty back then i wanted to look older. Now i prefer dressing my age and just trying to fit in like all other woman. The old saying” go for the face” when everything else is falling apart. Hair. nails and make up. Keeping up with those things is enough for me now.

72 and loving my fem side which has just be a part of me all my life. I so wanted to dress when I was about 5 but didn’t because boy were just not supposed to do that kind of thing…finally at 11 I put on pair of my mom’s silky panties and have never looked back since. I feel young when I crossdress. It certainly gives me a feeling of youth again when I slip on some lovely lingerie and a pretty dress with heels…Love It!!

Marlene here again. I should say that Estrogen should be between 30-40 for longevity/low mortality. Over about 80 longevity is not so good. So, be careful with those hormone creams, etc. Get your estrogen levels measured. Research optimum levels on Google or better yet DuckDuckGo that doesn’t track you. LEF.org has articles on optimum hormone levels.

Well, I turned 30 on the last Saturday, which still makes me one of the youngsters here 😉
During the last week I spent some time thinking about “not being able anymore to say ‘I’m 20-something'” or “what I can achieve during these 30-something years that I couldn’t in the past”. Sounds weird but I think it happens to anyone in some specific moments of life.

The vast majority of respondents are 50+… I find that surprising as many of us have been CDing since a young age…. I’m sure there are many young CDer’s out there… Possibly afraid to contribute…

Well it is generally true that as men age some of their (dropping) testosterone converts to estrogen, hence male boobs, and a general softening of features and muscle. I have my estrogen level measured twice a year. The “healthy” range is about thirty (I forget the units) and I keep it there; there is a prescription tab that will do that. I find that, for me, if I keep my testosterone level at about 400 I do not need a pill for estrogen. I’m not an MD so this not medical advice. You can get a blood test for all hormones, and everything else, quite cheaply from LEF.org; no connection except as a very satisfied customer. Sorry to bend your ear.

Cougar? Well, good for you, Marlene. This Dinosaur is more pussycat than cougar, now; but I still have most of my hair and teeth, and I can still enjoy running around to shop….all an old girl could want.

Apparently I look younger, though? Because nobody I meet (in guy-mode, usually; I haven’t asked anyone how old Vanessa looks so far haha) is ever able to guess my age within 5 years. Most recently I had someone guess I was 27; when I actually was in my late 20s, the highest guesses I usually got were in the range of 21-23. When I was getting my classes set up at college (at age 24, I did an extended period of taking a few classes every semester at community college before finally feeling okay with the thought of “going away” for school) I was asked what high school I had “just graduated from,” so apparently they thought I looked 18. 😂

Haha, I get that a lot too. My wife’s colleagues were apparently shocked when she told them my real age as they thought there was no way I was over 30. It does have it’s downsides though. I still have to make sure I have ID on me for that 1/5 shop that doesn’t believe I can legally drink yet.

I’m 57 in November… I also find that as more years appear in the rearview mirror, my Fem desires seem to be getting stronger…
When we are young… we know we like Fem clothing and wearing them, however it’s not until we put a few years behind us that we truly appreciate/enjoy crossdressing and being Feminine…
Does this hit home with any other girls?

Because only 1.6% of the population is in this (my) age group; most of us are “gone”. I’m glad to be here. Actually, I’m just glad to be.

I definitely I’m not too interested in dressing my age. At 67 all manner of nice conservative clothes would be right for a woman like me, right? I don’t think so!
Part of dressing for your age isn’t as big a deal as it used to be. I see many older women who look good wearing tight jeans, leggings, and other nice, pretty clothes. Short skirts and dresses too. It is more important to dress for your body type, I think. So it is finding what works for you, and what doesn’t, just like GG’s do.
There are clothes I’ll wear, and others I won’t, and it depends on what you are doing. Some of us do out en femme from time to time, (every day if you are fortunate), so dressing to go to the grocery store, mall, restaurant, or clubbing all have different looks. If you only dress in the privacy of your home, then whatever you like! Also depends how much attention you want to attract, mostly I dress to blend, and am usually successful at that.
We all seem to wish we could be one of those fortunate young women that could be called a “Hot Chick”, but most of us won’t be able to pull that off. I know this old babe won’t, but maybe later tonight I’ll get dressed in a micro mini and pretend I’m one!

Fascinating poll! And it gives credulity to the theory that decreased hormone levels play a role to this thing of ours. Three-fourths of us are in the Fifty-plus category. Makes me wonder: Is CDH a good cross-section of the CD world in general? And who are the other three genuine Dinosaurs, besides me? Please PM me ladies; I would love to chat.

i think that we all dress a bit younger including many cis females. As the old saying goes you are as old as you feel. i do not feel 59 more like 35-40 and i dress that way.

I would like to ask a question on top of this one. For those of us who are older. When you first started cross dressing did you look at dressing your age or did you keep looking at younger models and wish you looked like them. I am 53 and just starting on this path (it might stay at crossdressing or it may go completely trans as I expect) but I have trouble seeing Cassie as 53. I think this is part of my confusion as to where I want to go with this. Anyone else gone through this?

So I’m in the 61-70 group, and will be 67 in about two weeks, which makes me part of the majority here at least.
In common with what a few others have said already, I wish I had become as serious as I am now about dressing up many years earlier. So I too have some catching up to do!
Sounds like a good excuse to buy those clothes I have in my shopping basket at an online retailer this weekend.
Also, I am much less troubled by who knows about me than I did before.

Hi Elisa. I am 67. When out in stealth, I feel somewhere around 35. When in the closet I am somewhere around 25. When in the closet and feeling naughty…………..I am around 15 with a boy or girlfriend. People say it’s not your age but how you feel. When my time comes, I want to go in my girl clothes and no longer care what others will think when they see me or find my girl stuff. Hugs…………..karley

The age distribution is a question I have thought about often so thanks for asking it. The majority in the 60 decade was a surprise to me.
At age 83, don’t look it I’m often told, I seem to be in the minority. Luckily I have a very supportive SO so no problem. SO says I will never pass and she is right. Still, one day I will go out completely en femme in an accepting city; would have happened already but for Covid. Now for out in the world it is femme everything but wig and make up. That’s fine by me.

I’m 67 I’ve been dressing most of my adult life more so in the last 10 to 15 years it seems the older i get the more my feminine side is taking over, the first time i dressed up was when i was about 8 or 9 years old and i tried my older sisters clothes on, after that i was hooked on dressing up but now it’s not just the dressing up as much as i wish i could pass more as a woman, it would be wonderful to be able to go out en femme and get some compliment’s on how feminine i looked xxxxx

I am 35. From a young age I’ve always been curious about dressing up, but only really started with a small array of items around nine years ago. However, in the last year or so I’ve started to rapidly build and expand my wardrobe and am also getting more into makeup and skin care. (I literally got my first full-length wig today) If I’m being honest, this will probably only increase more and more in the future.

I’m happy that I’m still dressing and enjoying at 73, but sad that I’m still in captivity. I wish I could snap my fingers today and see a reality that allowed us all to dress for success whatever way we see fit. When I look at the age-range of respondents, I happen that we have our longevity, but I’m saddened that so many young men are not allowed to express their feminine propensities by dressing up as young women. Does that sound ridiculous? I wish it did not. I love dressing as a young women. If you analyze our society, the most appealing, compelling, and fluid choice of clothing is that afforded to young women. As amusing as it may sound, if everyone over 18 YOA, could dress as young women, it would be fascinating. I can imagine how much fun it would be to go to happy hour at my local pub and compare the latest styles with all the guys and gals. Some would love mini skirts, hose, and heels. Some would parade in skinny jeans, tunics, and booties. Still others would choose tights, sweaters, and stiletto boots. We’d have so much fun displaying our best feminine portrayal. For me, feminine is fun. I hope I can do it, more and more (publicly), as long as I live.
