None of the choices are a good fit for me. I consider myself gender fluid.
I feel more comfortable presenting as a female. I’ve had laser hair removal, my brows are shaped androgynously, and supplements have given me small man boobs. I experience dysphoria when I haven’t dressed in a while. I’ve thought about transitioning many times and can’t rule it out.
However, I’ve grown accustomed to many of the things being a guy affords me. It would be hard to give that up. Decades of social conditioning did that. I’ve always felt like an outsider in guy circles, and I have no interest in living the life most guys want. It’s like I’m role playing for the sake of convenience. I’m okay with that. Switching between genders works for me.

Stictly a crossdresser… I may be “underdressed” almost 24/7, but the “male me” comes through at least 80% of the time.
The balance… when I can, (and especially these days with the BUG), is pure Catherine Louise Ryan.
Eventually……. The “bug” will pass and Caty will come back with a vengeance.

Strictly a crossdresser. I’m happy at home to just change my pants into a skirt, and sometimes my top into a more feminine top (I’m usually wearing a woman’s top that is close enough to unisex that people don’t notice). I don’t need a bra, breast forms, makeup, or to do something with my hair. But I’m just as happy if I do some or all of these. If I go out, I definitely go all the way. But it doesn’t bother me when my (adult) children call me Dad. My daughter will call me Alison if we are out in public, because she understands not to embarrass me. But at home I’m still Dad and I’m happy with that too.
Another friend who started coming out in public and later decided to live full time en femme once said “What’s the difference between a crossdresser and a transgender? About 3 years.” But after 10 years of being seen by others, I still have no desire to transition. So it may be true for some but not for everybody.

Actually, “None Of The Above” would be appropriate.
I have essentially transitioned, socially. My identification is transgender, non-binary. The only thing left would be a name change, but that would cause too much confusion I think. I am dressed 80% to 90% of the time when I leave the house. The vast majority of people here know me as DeeAnn. Very few have met Don, who sometimes appears as a matter of convenience. I have no plans to physically transition as I don’t have dysphoria, fortunately. However, what I came to realize is that I am a combination of male and female energies, personas, or whatever you choose to call it.

I would if I could but at my age, it won’t happen. I basically live as Coral 24.7 I have a fairly nice relationship which allows me more freedom to be me. We shop and dine together and most of our friends are also very accepting. I hardly ever wear male attire and I recently pierced my right ear and wear earrings almost everywhere now. If I were younger I would but I am very grateful to have these freedoms. Better late than never I guess.

Like so much inside my head I am quite conflicted about this, and I didn’t vote. I’m not sure I’d ever go all the way, but right now, this second, if there were no consequences (yeah right…) I’d love to have the curves, the boobs, the smooth skin, no annoying shaving of the beard, and still be able to wear wtf I liked (in this fantasy world I would like to keep my man parts, and my wife…. 🤔. All other parts of my life/hobbies/work etc are easily compatible with this)

For now I’m just a cross-dresser, if something transpired in the future where as I could transition I would do it without hesitation, I think my female side is getting stronger the older i get, when I read a magazine i always look at the female fashion’s first when I’m out shopping I’m always looking in the shop windows at the women’s fashion’s, it’s something i would never have done many years ago, well no one can predict the future we shall see what happens when it happens xxxxx

I am a crossdresser only because I enjoy certain parts of being a male. My feminine side comes out when I dress but has to go back in as no one knows other than the ladies on this site. I may have thought about transitioning earlier in my life and I tried some aspects of the female life but due to my age and family situation I am perfectly content just crossdressing.

Hi Kathleen !
I selected cross-dresser only. I have been spending plenty of time wondering if my upbringing had been different would I perhaps have felt different if I could have embraced the feminine things as a child and what if I had at least an open minded parent who was willing to let me explore some things….. There is no way to tell. I only know that I suppressed any feminine feelings and desires for so long and I that I was wrong for feeling that those desires were wrong and so it goes round and round.
There is something I am sure of….. I really need that white dress with the pink flowers….. and shoes….. omg the shoes….

I feel much the same as you; from the age of 7 on, I grew up in an all-male environment. Seven cousins, all boys, and Bettylou still lurked in the background. In hindsight, I have to wonder, what if…?

When I was young, I was such a misfit in the guy world that I wondered whether I was “supposed” to have been a girl; but I did OK for the next 60-plus years as a guy. Now, my age and medical history make it impossible; otherwise, I would be thinking about it, at least. Never know for sure what my answer would be.

I would love to transition but im afraid. I don’t know what I’ll do. I have a young son and now his mom and me aren’t together. She doesn’t accept any of this. I have a very good business and career though too but have thought seriously about selling everything including my house I own clear which would give me a very significant amount of money going away for a couple of years or a bit more fully transitioning though I don’t think I’d get bottom surgery but I would do everything else to make me look as much a genetic woman as possible and then slowly easing back into my business as a completely different person and hoping nobody would realize who I was

Years ago I wondered if transitioning might be right for me, but since coming out to my wife and dressing more I have realized that although I have a strong femme side, I do also have a male side that I would not be willing to reject.
Now I just need to find the balance.

I am a crossdresser who briefly considered transitioning and ruled it out due to a long and awful medical history which includes a triple heart bypass.

I’m strictly a Crossdresser…now. There was a time (a long time ago in a life far far away), where I seriously considered transitioning, looking into therapists, doctors, costs, procedures, time involved, and reading about a number of successful transsexuals. If things had gone differently in my life, I might have at least started transitioning. But life didn’t work out that way. I married, had a child, divorced, and wound up with (eventually and fully desiring) custody of that child. Being a single parent makes you seriously reconsider major life events. So, I married again (this time it took!) had some more kids, and now I’ve come to accept where I am. I think I still have a few years left to work and enjoy my desires, so I’ll stay what I now am.
There was one moment that might have changed my life. I got a degree from a well known university and at the same there was professor in another department who had previously transitioned but kept it quiet. Eventually, upon reading alumni news I discovered who it was and if I had known about her I might have looked her up and talked to her. Sometimes all that is needed is a little encouragement from someone else. Facing the unknown by oneself can be disheartening at times. I’m glad there are places like here. Maybe if they existed back in that distant (galaxy and) past, things might have been different for a lot of us.

Just a crossdresser with the heart that dreams of transitioning. My age basically prevents such a change but most importantly my relationship to which I cherish and is the main reasons. 🌷

In my earlier years I may have wondered about transitioning. When I look at it now I feel like I’m somewhere in between. There are days I like being a “man” and there are days I can’t feel feminine enough even if I still look like a man in a dress.

Strictly a Crossdresser.
At the age of around 16 or 17 the thought of exploring transitioning was nagging away at the back of my mind but looking back I was never serious about it.
I had loads of time on my hands and every opportunity I got to dress I took. I got more and more daring and confident when dressed so maybe that was the reason I was thinking of taking things further.
Then I got a job, girlfriends followed and loved my sport. Had a great time into my 20’s. Love being a man, dad and husband but still love my girly time too.

I am so happy we all have CDH to exchange ideas in this world chaos.
