    One year ago, when I was newly “out” to my wife, I posted about going out with her for my birthday.   She  thinks it’s “wrong” for a man to wear a dress, so I was in stealth mode: underdressed, with a ladies’ tee, GV jeans and ladies’ sneakers.  I still had short hair, and my ears weren’t yet pierced.

    This year, when asked what I wanted for my birthday, I requested (and received)  approval to spend the day Dressed.  The celebration went well, though not as planned.  My wife still won’t go out in public with Bettylou, and our lunch date was also her first time out of the house since having open-heart surgery in February.  So I went out in drab, and delayed Bettylou until Sunday.

    Up early Sunday morning, painted my nails and did the morning chores; then it was Dress time!  First, shapewear and forms, then a new pair of thigh-highs, black Mary Jane heels, and finally my new dress, bought for the occasion.  Topped off with makeup, earrings, a pearl necklace and some jewelry, and Bettylou has a dream fulfilled!  At noon, I served us lunch, in all of me femme glory, and despite her many objections to me wearing a dress, my wife’s only comment was a question about my MJs being comfortable to wear.  She had ample opportunity to look, because after lunch, she asked me to paint her nails for her, which I did.  When Cinderella finally had to change back into a pumpkin, around 11 pm,  I counted it as a glorious day, and perhaps my best birthday, ever.

      Betty Lou;

      I’m so happy for you and just love the hope this gives the rest of us with wives that are still working out how much they feel comfortable with.

      I also very happy to hear that your wife is doing well from open heart surgery

      -Molly

        Thank you, Molly.  Her comment, the first time she saw me Dressed was not complimentary; but now, she will tell me I look nice, and even ask for the same item in her size.  We still have a bit to go, but life is good.

        Hugs,

        Bettylou

      A glorious day, indeed, Bettylou! You are the envy of all birthday girls, made possible by a sensational, understanding wife. I hope someday soon you’ll be able to go out in public with your wife, as Bettylou, just two mature ladies out having an intimate dinner. Heaven on earth.

      Thank you, Krista,

      My situation is somewhat similar to yours; when I asked my wife to set the boundaries, she had only two:  No dresses – but skirts are OK, and I wear them routinely -, and keep Bettylou secret from our kids and her friends.  Two of ours also live nearby, but seldom visit.  I did once have to  kick off my ballet flats and do a panic change from skirt to jeans.
      Do make that request next year;  you will regret it if you let it pass.

      Hugs,

      Bettylou

      Fantastic story Bettylou!  Congratulations on your wonderful dream birthday. My wife also doesn’t like seeing me in a dress or skirt (although I do get away with some feminine items on a daily basis). I did think about telling her that’s what I wanted for my recent 66th birthday but I chickened out. Maybe next year?  Her big worry is that our daughter & granddaughters who live less than 10 minutes away will drop by unexpected and she doesn’t want them to know about Krista.  I’m happy that it worked out so well for You.  Stay healthy, stay safe, All the Best, Krista.

      So wonderful to hear your birthday experience, Bettylou.  Hopefully time and seeing how dressing up makes you sooooo happy will help tour wife to lighten up on her reluctance to let Bettylou be Bettylou.
