        Thanks, Raquel,

        Just loved reading your profile and your detailed description of how you went out ‘en femme’.  I made my first breast forms in that way.  Now I generally just manage with a well-padded bra.

        Love, Grace

          Thanks, Grace. My little rice bags have served my well, but listening to all the ladies here talk about their breast forms has me craving a pair of the self-adhesive type. To feel their tug would be wonderful. I just have to figure out a way to order some and pay for them that didn’t involve our shared credit card.

        Thanks, Roberta.  Just enjoyed reading your profile.  I have also recently told my SO (wife).  But I’ve said I want to transition, rather than just dress, so my poor wife has so much to process…

        Easier for me, because I’ve been thinking about it for longer.  Though only quite recently realised how far I want to go.

        I loved reading your profile.  Your style is more casual than mine but love to hear about what you love wearing!

        Love, Grace

          Sad but true, mostly all I’ve been able to do is out on a boat or the mall or just out for a drive. None of that lends itself to dressing up.  I have a DADT situation at home and i still havent exactly met any other CDS. So not much reason to get dressed up for where i go.

          I was going thru my closet just yesterday and became a bit saddened after pulling out some of my nicer things. Realizing how we have all suffered from the restraints of this damn covid mess. I was actually looking thru my closet for what I will wear to the Keystone Conference coming up in March. I can’t describe how much I’m looking forward to it. I’m driving so all in all it should give me 10 day or so of dressing 24/7. I will finally get a chance to wear some of my nicer things.

          How are things with you ? Is you SO making good signals or is she still trying to adjust?

          Not sure why it is like it is.  I seem to be the only one who enjoys seeing me as a woman.

            Hello Roberta,

            Sorry I’ve taken a few days to reply. I hope things are OK with you. What does DADT mean, please?

            What is the Keystone Conference?  Do you drive ‘en femme’?  What do you wear?  I imagine that must be fun – though you’d have to stop for fuel, of course, which might be …interesting…!

            My SO is silent at the moment.  We were already living separately during the week (for my work) before I came out as TG to her.  So, whereas I might have gone home every weekend, I’m now just staying put.

            Things had not been good for a couple of years before this moment.  She is angry with me for a lot of reasons – thinks I was domineering.  I recognise some of that and I had also become the whipping boy for a controlling father and affection-less mother that she had.  Both her parents have passed away so there has been nowhere for all that rage to go.

            Ironically, one of the reasons why I decided to come out and transition is because I want to stop being the kind of horrible male that my SO rightly hates.  Honestly, I think I was a bit of that but I feel I’ve also been a useful focus for all the other resentments she has had.

            So I wanted to become the kind of soft, sweet, feminine soul and body who could be a true support to my SO.  Not as a man but as something…better.  Like many others in our category, perhaps, I have had great difficulties expressing affection as a man.  I have felt that, if I started to be emotional – to be tender, to cry at a movie – I would not be able to stop and would just want to go the whole way, which would mean reaching for my femme clothes and staying in them.  So now I’ve decided to do just that!

            It’s possible my SO may accept the new feminine, transitioning me.  But if not, well, then I will also mourn the end of a long and mainly happy marriage.  Alas, though, that tree, though long-established, had already shown signs of illness…

            I also have to tell my adult sons; though both are liberal, one is a bit more conservative than the other.  He’s in a long-term relationship with a woman from an Asian culture, so there might be problems there – not from the woman herself but from her family.

            Your last line is a good question.  Things are getting better every day.  Most people (at least in England) just don’t care what we do or wear.  Many are wonderful and accepting.  However, those who can’t bear us and feel the need to throw insults do so, I think, because they regard femaleness as a kind of ‘holy grail’.  For those people, cis women have a sacred duty and role to be the progenitors of the next generation.  If we dress like women, so the thinking goes, we mock that holy purpose.

            I’m sure someone has written all that down more elegantly but I guess you can see what I mean.

            Take care, have a great day/night (you’re in the States, right?) and write again soon,

            Much love,

            Grace

      Hi Grace

      I too am at the start of my journey and was wearing my sisters clothes during my childhood. I had to wear hand me downs and they liked to dress me up like a doll, little did they know i loved it and dressed up when they werent there.

      I had a partner until recently,and i used to wear her stuff when she was out, but that wasnt too often. Now i am single, my feminine side has come roaring back and i now want to live my lfe as a woman. Although i want to be female in every way i possibly can, i do not want surgery and will have to use forms instead.

      Good luck on your transition and please keep me regularly updated with your progress. We both are at the same stage and need lots of help and support. Maybe we can answer each others questions that we may be too embaressed to ask about in public.

      Love
      Michelle

        Hi Michelle,

        Thank you for your warm, friendly introduction.  I think the feminising story starts for many of us starts with events in childhood – over which we had no control and which we were led to think were ‘normal’.

        I’d love to have been dressed as a doll but that didn’t quite happen to me in childhood. My feminine side also came roaring back when I was started spending a lot of time alone…working abroad, in fact.  Now, I also want to live full-time as a woman but I want to transition: hormones, surgery etc.  So I know I’m in for the long haul.  But I think that time will help me sort a lot of other things out…like how to do my make-up!

        Please direct message me with any questions you may have.  I will enjoy answering them, I know.

        Much love,

        Grace

      Hi Grace,

      welcome to CDH! I just realized I was transgender last year after crossdressing since I was a pre-teen (52 now). I’m sure you’ll find lots of people to talk to here, I’m almost always available.
