      I want to thank everyone for the kind, gracious and encouraging words. I’m still on the fence. I’m ready to order everything I need to go “full girl” as I call it. I’ve done it before so I know what I need. Even though I purged a year ago, I did keep some things. Some underwear, stockings and one pair of shoes. Truth be told, I’m worried about being caught. What if I die suddenly and my kids find my stuff? I’m not sure I want that to be part of my legacy. Also where is my outlet? I have gone to all the trouble of dressing in the past to then not have anywhere to share it. That may or may not change in the future. I live in Colorado Springs. Club Q shut down after the shooting. It’s 10 minutes from my house. I didn’t know what a nice place it was until all the media attention and all the support the community showed for it. I know if it reopens I will have a safe place to go. Staying in the house and sharing pics online really doesn’t cut it. So I’m still on the fence.

        Sometimes the need to share who you are and how you feel is ultimately being in public and interacting with other people. If you are confident then going out in public works for many here whether they blend in as a woman or don’t and just own it.  If Colorado Springs has no other good LGBTQ clubs where many feel safe to dress publicly then I would look into the different places in Denver or going to CD/Trans events held in many places Divas, Wildside, Esprit Gala, to name a few. Ultimately it does feel better and more fulfilling to not have to hide at home most of the time alone. It feels better to express who you are in public find what suits you best as a step either alone in public, at a friendly club/bar, or a Cd event to express yourself and feel good who you are.

        Hugs April

      Hi Candace. Welcome to the group. I am so glad you found this amazing group of sisters. Do not suppress something that is such a powerful part of who you are inside. There is nothing wrong with wanting to express our fem side – we are all here together.

      XO Tara

      Hello Candace and welcome. Please do come in and put your feet up and enjoy a great group of friends. I have not felt yet the need to purge myself but can understand why so many do but the problem with not is having to many things and then when I do try and sort through my wardrobe I don’t do so well because I look at the idem and then remember the thrill of when I wore it last and back in the closet it goes. Again welcome and feel right at home.

      Welcome Candace! I think as many of the girls here, we have also at times purged things we wish we still had. No going back – Just look forward. Buy and cherish new things and new experiences and feel free to share here. Nice group of like minded people to share with.

      I hope you enjoy your time here!

      Hi Candace from another Arizona girl. I know you will discover this to be a wonderful place to make new friends and share your experiences. I don’t know where you are in AZ, but I live in Gilbert. We are forming a little group to get together occasionally to have makeup parties and do fun things. Please let me know if you are interested. We are also planning an event in the early spring here in Phoenix as part of “Confident U”, an events/experience portal designed to provide crossdressers with unique “experiences”, videos, workshops, webinars, and opportunities to share in order to allow girls to go out and about with confidence. We will be promoting it here in CDH right after the New Year. Hugs, Paulette

      Welcome Candace. I too did a purge many years ago as I bet many of us have done here at CDH. It is so great see you here and that you are back enjoying life.

      Welcome Again, Jessica

      Welcome to CDH, Candice! Believe me, I understand the purging of clothes, sometimes I would even purge after a day or 2. We are so happy you found us here!

      Hi Candace 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 think most of us on here have gone through the same sort of thing that you have, purged and purged time after time and i think we just can’t shake the pink mist, I think once we start our life as a crossdresser it stays with us for the rest of our lives, I’ve finally accepted that Roz will be with me for the rest of my life, 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’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, I’m sure you will find lots of friends on here and if you have any questions just ask and the girls will get back to you X

      Hugs Rozalyn X 💋

      Hello Candace!

      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 and questionnaires.
      Here no one is judged, but always welcomed with a warm embrace.

      I am Greta, a 56 year old cd/tg person; with a life that is a bit complicated by having to hide my gender identity…..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, externally dressed as Mr. Antonio (lol) but I’m wearing women’s underwear.

      XOXOX from Italy 🇮🇹
      Greta ❤️

      If you have purged a time or two, you are in the majority around here. Now that you are permanently here you don’t have to do that again. You have our love and support to see you through.

      Welcome Candace!  To purge and wish you hadn’t is not at all uncommon.  I’m sure you’ll meet others here who have done the same thing.  I’ve come close a time or two but never actually went through with it.

      I’m so glad you’re here!  This is a wonderful and supportive group of people.  I look forward to seeing your posts, feel free to reach out to me anytime!

      Hello Candace 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
