Crossdressing success story - caught in the middle

Dear Readers,

Today’s crossdressing success story comes from a lady who is caught between a life with a loving wife of many years, and her deepest longings. My heart goes out to her, that she may find a tranquil agreement that allows both her and her wife to be who they are. If you’d like to contribute your own crossdressing success story send your humorous, emotional, joyful, courageous and heartfelt stories to vanessalaw1@gmail.com and I’ll share them with our community.

My Story,

Sometimes beginning at the middle is a good place to start because that is where most stories are composed.
I am where I am, I do not know where I will be in the future. I have some recollection of where I have been – you know how it is as you get older!

Transgender Heaven - Gender Journey

My cross-dressing story has been evolving recently. I recently went to see a GP, then a Sex counselor then a psychiatrist. Interesting discussion; however, I really got nowhere with understanding why or what to do?

I am married with a wife who is aware of my need; but is not  accepting. We have been together for over 30 years. I only told her about my need  2 years ago. I have been lucky to the extent that she has not left me; however while she accepts the situation she is very emotionally against it!  Sexual relations have been difficult since my revelation. We have 2 children both of whom have left home. As far as I am aware I do not believe any of my friends or relations, apart from my wife, are aware of my dressing crossing.

We have agreed that given the time we have been together and the difficulties in getting another partner, staying together even with ‘issues’ is better than not. We have a session with my psychiatrist planned in a few weeks. We would like to explore where we might go with our relationship which we are keen to develop further rather than just let it lax.

Each week I have a day off from work while my wife is off with her work. I am Jane then. I dress, put on makeup and go out. Shopping for clothes, makeup, to the movies, the art gallery or just a coffee is my day out as Jane once a week. I would like more; but given work and other commitments it is difficult. Sometimes if I am away with work intercity I have opportunities to dress.

I look forward to ‘my day’ as Jane and see it as an opportunity to throw off my male shackles and immerse myself as a woman. It is a wonderful feeling that is hard to explain; but I have come to accept that this what I need to do and continue to explore and develop….the story continues.

Jane; My first wife was the same way. I discussed things before we ever got married and I hoped her position would change. It never did, and our relationship died. This was not a bad thing, it gave me the time to find myself, love myself, and eventually go out and find that person who loved me, all of me. Now I have a wife, and children, and one hell of a wardrobe that I feel comfortable and fun wearing whereever and whenever I like. I wish the same for you and everyone else. Ending is harder than starting over.… Read more »

It was amazing how much my story mirrors Jane. Married nearly 30 years, sadly I kept my life secret until she discovered a couple of years ago. She hates my dressing and while I am keeing true to her I struggle with finding balance. She didn’t sign up for this so I don’t blame her for her feelings, not sure how this gets better.

I have only been with my wife for twelve years,i should have told her when we first got together,but i didn’t;needless to say she was not happy at all when i told of my long desire to be female,and my dressing up en femme.We are still together,but she in no way supports or likes Isabelle,i only play at being Isabelle when she is either working ar away visiting;oh,what a life.

Hey Sweetie,
I know it can be a hard road, but I would definitely encourage you to live your life true to yourself. Take it slowly, carefully and with good planning. Show love and understanding to others, and let your inner spirit floursih.

Hello Vanessa, Like the girls above, my story is close o the same. Married over 30 years, been a closeted CD, since my late teens(over 50 now). I miss my time being Robin, and used to also, enjoy that one day a week, by myself. Schedules canged, no day for Robin anymore. And yes, I told my spouse of my desire, she’s ok with me in panties, but gets turned off by anything more. And, she’s afraid of me becomming “gay” and leaving. Well, I could not tell her I’ve always had the desire to be dressed as Robin, and… Read more »

I really think we should be asking THIS question instead > “Why Do WOMEN Cross dress” ? Because look what alot of them wear and styles that are after mens. For example…Boy shorts undies for women with a fly were modeled after what gender?………oh yea,it was from the MALE’s dresser.And WHY are we not making a issue of that ? I saw a program on a tv news cast not long ago,about this boy/guy that like “female” things,and like to wear skirts and such.At the end of the report,they had a Dr.(psychologist) on and they were going to interview him… Read more »

I am a lot like you. I told my wife of over 30 years 12 months ago. Was not real happy with it but accepting things. The kids are grown and married off. I have been out en femme shopping with my wife and my sister. At first she wouldn’t be seen with me dressed, but now helps me pick dresses whilst I am out dressed. We talk a bit about fashion and other female trends, make up etc. I have been wearing false nails for almost a year now with regular appointments at the salon, I have even been… Read more »
