    Hello all.  Just dropping a brief into.  Very much in the beginner steps of crossdressing.  Don’t yet know where the steps will lead, only that I’ve moved from passing thoughts to actually doing.  At this point I’m not even sure why exactly I’m doing it.  All I know is there are positive feelings associated with it.  Maybe I just feel pretty.  Maybe it gives me a sense of freedom I can’t get otherwise.  Maybe I feel I’m somehow finding my more genuine self.  Haven’t quite nailed down the why yet, just moving my feet and exploring.  Joining this site, I suppose, is a part of that exploration.  Maybe I’ll just lurk around a while.  Maybe I’ll make connections or even friends.  Maybe I’ll tuck tail and run.  Only time will tell.  Until then…. Hi!

      Hi Elissa. My take on it is go with the flow. The chances are you have been that way longer than you think. Sometimes the signs are there but we cannot read them. Enjoy the experience and good luck with your journey xx

      enjoy and explore to find out what you like, want and desire.  You will develop your own style of lingerie, clothes and make  up.   Enjoy your journey

      Hi Elissa welcome to CDH it’s nice to meet you, we are like one big happy family on here so don’t be shy come on in and join the family, I’m a mature crossdresser I’ve been dressing most of my life since i was about 8 or 9 years old when i tried my older sister’s lingerie on, we all had to start somewhere and most of us are still on that journey, I know I’m still on it I’m not sure where I’ll end up, if it’s help and advice you need you have come to the right place we don’t judge anyone on here it’s a safe place for everyone, I’m sorry i can’t meet up with you for a coffee ☕ I’m on the other side of the pond in the UK, I’m sure there are lots of girls near to where you live who will be happy to meet up with you for a coffee and a chat, I’m sure you will find lots of friends on here so if you have any questions just ask and the girls will get back to you X 🎀

      Hugs Rozalyn X 💋

      Welcome girl. Don’t get too hung up on why, just concentrate on accepting who you are and the fact you enjoy it. Enjoy your ride.
      Hugs, Jill

      Hello Elisa,

      Welcome to CDH, a large and welcoming family. It’s a pleasure to meet you here.
      Here you will be able to exchange opinions and information and find support to go forward in your enfemme adventure.
      Have fun participating in the forums, polls and questionnaires.
      Here no one is judged, but always welcomed with a warm embrace.

      I’m Greta, a 56-year-old CD/TG person (I’m taking my first steps in HRT); with a life a little complicated by having to hide my gender identity for too long ….. when I’m alone at home and I know I have no guests I’m Greta, if I’m at work or I have guests at home I’m Greta dressed in unisex clothing outwardly like Mr. Antonio but wearing my women’s underwear of course.

      XOXOX from Italy 🇮🇹
      Greta ❤️

      I’m not sure anyone can for why we do what we do. And it takes a lot of looking at ourselves to know what we really want. But I can tell you the feeling never goes away. I have been full time since I was 9 till now at 62. Just take one step at a time and you will figure it out. We are glad to have you welcome to the site

      Hello Elissa  welcome to CDH I am glad you have shared a part of who you are and found us and made the step to become part of a family that is welcoming, understanding, compassionate, and supportive. While we are all similar and have many of the same desires we all differ on our goals or public expression and or level of personal experiences. I encourage you to explore the many forums, topics, polls and member biographies found here as there are a wide range of members all over the spectrum of feminine expression or those on the path to transition and those that have.  There are also links to websites that have products and services that may help you on your own personal path of acceptance and self expression. Ultimately it is a place, home, or world were you can feel feel comfortable and confident in who you are; as being who you truly are as your authentic self  of you being a man, a woman, or expressing your feminine desires feelings and or qualities. I am happy you are here and have made a choice to accept this part of yourself as self acceptance is the most important thing you can do for yourself and others. You can’t expect others to accept you if you don’t accept yourself all of you. As you are sharing a part of your authentic self  here on CDH it ultimately lifts some of the burden that you may be feeling which many of us have carried for what seems like a lifetime you are not alone. I am happy you have made the step to be here. Welcome!

      Hugs April

      Hi Elissa,

      Sometimes I feel the same way. But this is a great place to explore with a lot of friendly people ready to help and make you feel right at home.
