    Hello all,

    I’ve just sorted out my login. It turns out I registered ages ago. With a password I couldn’t remember.

    Where am I coming from? I’m very hesitant, and I know I’m a not very adventurous cd, and at times I beat myself up about it but I have to acknowledge my  situation.

    Things should be easy for me, I’m old – as in pensionable age. My wife has died , the ‘kids are all grown up and living away  and  I shouldn’t give a toss. So I can dress up in my limited way in the safety of my house, but beyond that … I’m not sure. But I’m also not sure I’m satisfied with the situation, if you see what I mean. it just doesn’t feel enough

    So I’ve joined up here to see if I can get some encouragement but more importantly I’d welcome advice, especially from older folks in my situation – where might I go from here and how?

      I’m 47 and new to going totally female. Been underdressing a long time though. When I decided, about a month ago, that I really wanted to go all out at home, I didn’t think I wanted to go out in public dressed. The moment I asked my wife if I could totally crossdress at home was the exact moment I realized that I want to dress in public too. This wonderful site is a great place to read about other girls making their first (and later) trips in public. Those are my favorite posts to read.

      Welcome Marti, I am in exactly the same situation as you, pensioner, lost wife 4½ years ago, no kids at home. I used to live in Gosport many, many years ago but now live in the USA. I was an opportunist crossdresser at first, knew the wife’s limits so enjoyed what I could. I am now fairly comfortable in what most people call “stealth mode”, so I am often out and about in womens clothes but pass as a man. I am still working towards getting out of the car in a dress or a skirt. It’s taken me 4 years to get to this point and I still haven’t actually done it yet. However, on a daily basis, I am dressed en femme, always underwear and bra, mostly leggings and ladies sweatshirts but sometimes a dress or skirt. You’ll like it here.

        Hi michaela,

        It’s already a small world, I’ve spent time around the Gosport area, though I’ve moved on since then. I’m taken with your little snapshot of life. It brought to mind my summer visits to Southsea beach and swimming in a chilly sea , wrapping up after in a colourful sarong – I’ve worked and travelled out east,  so it just came natural. In hindsight I  was not at all phased. It came natural to say “it’s not a skirt, its a sarong” if anyone asked. I  still have a selection which I wear around the place. And I guess that describes my style. If I can call it unisex, that’ll do. Thanks for your post x

      Hi Marti,

      I’m one of the girls in the UK that Kathleen referred to. I haven’t been around here too long but I have found it a great place to explore being me.

      Feel free to PM me if you’d prefer to chat more privately. Otherwise, enjoy the exploration.

      Hi Marti!  Welcome to the CDH community.

      You and I have much in common, including age, interest, nervousness and more.  This is what I found from the earliest exchanges.  There are many, many of us with identical questions, desires, limits and concerns.  Lots of help here.

      Two suggestions I make to all new friends who join:  #1 as you have time go onto the Chat and get to know us better.  #2 if and when you feel comfortable send Friend Request(s) which open the Private Message option where you can have 1:1 conversations with a bit less lag time and (obviously) more privacy if you like me are still somewhat reluctant.

      I would always be glad to chat if you like.

      Hi Marti, Teralynn here. Welcome to our wonderful online community. Is 72 old enough for you? I have been crossdressing since I was 51. Read my profile page to see why I started crossdressing at such a mature age. I could give you all kinds of advice Luv on whether you should expand your crossdressing journey to include going out in public fully dressed en femme but crossdressing is as much about how it makes you feel. You can get that feeling just by dressing at home. If there is a particular reason why you want others to see you out and about dressed en femme that my dear is another matter altogether. Being alone without a significant other to have to please gives you liberty that a lot of crossdressing people don’t have. You can pretty much do what your heart desires. Just don’t feel obligated to push your crossdressing journey past your comfort zone. Even in this day and age there are mean spirited people out there who might make a crossdressing person extremely uncomfortable. Here at CDH you are among friends who will accept and support you. For lots of our members that is enough. For me I dress as Teralynn every day, and I do it when I am out and about including shopping and Doctor appointments. I don’t do it to prove anything but because Teralynn is part of who I am. The other part is retired Marine John who still does not put up with any nonsense. Pity the fool who would try to mess with Teralynn when she is out and about because in a split second John can be brought out to protect the both of them. So do what you really feel you want to do with your crossdressing journey but develop an attitude that will enable you deal with occasional nasty looks, inappropriate coments or downright unacceptable behavior from some members of our society. Believe it or not, things have improved quite a bit since we were growing up and most people accept a person for who they are, no questions asked. If I can ever be of service please feel free to contact me through this site and let me know how I can help. A post on my home profile page wall or private message will get the fastest response. – Blessings

      Hi Marti and a long overdue welcome!  Not all of us are as adventurous or outgoing as we would like to be but certainly no need to beat yourself up over it – though I’m one to talk 🙂.  I too have sat at home dressed and feeling good thinking “now what?”  Well,  the more we can learn and understand, the better informed our decisions will be, and having support makes those decisions easier.  Where might you go from here?  Forward I hope, to a place of your choosing!  The how may take a bit of time, but CDH is a great  guide for that, and the support here is second to none.  Lots of great ladies around here for that.  Best thing I can say is just relax and enjoy yourself a bit.  Regardless of how we all move forward, it’s a lot easier to do when you’re here among friends.  Welcome again Marti, nice to meet you hon!

      Stevie

        Wow, here’s me thinking I might have to be patient for any replies, and to be honest with a bit of trepidation. Then you come straight in there, Stevie. I love you to bits for your kind words.
