Hello all!! My name is Maive and I live in Western NY. My story is like so many others. I started dressing in the late 60’s in my early teens. The times were very different and making this public would have cost me everything. Maive lived the last 50 years in the closet. Married, raised a family and had a good career as is expected. I can’t tell you how many times I purged everything hoping I could live without the desire. We all know how that works. I have followed Crossdresser Heaven for years and read the most amazing stories. Always afraid to join. But through your stories I have decided it is time to let Maive tell her story and be a part of my everyday life. I love dressing feminine, dresses, lingerie, lace bras and panties and pantyhose and stockings. I also love leggings and long blouses. I guess I am an age-appropriate dresser. I feel so much better and relaxed when my makeup is right, and I am having a good hair day. I have finally ventured out, Most recently attending the Erie Gala. What an amazing feeling. Having recently come out to my wife she has become very supportive. She even encouraged me to attend the Gala and bought me the dresses I would need for the formal and theme dinner. Her support has been amazing. I wish I had opened to her years before. So that is my story. To all the beautiful women on Crossdresser heaven I say thank you and I love every one of you. I am glad to be part of such an amazing family. Hugs to all my new sisters.
