This story comes from central Alabama. Thanks Teresa for sharing your story with us.
I'm middle-aged single white male, heterosexual and live in central Alabama. I have always had the compulsion to cross-dress since I was about 14 ( I just wish I knew where it came from).
Teresa's Crossdressing Success Story
I dabbled with crossdressing during a 13 year marriage and it was a factor in my divorce 10 years ago. I still
struggle with being a Christian and the compulsion to dress up. About 3 years ago I started dressing again after about 10 years of being "dry". I did the purge thing a few times but finally decided I'd live out the desire in hope that one day I can be over it.
Anyway, so the last year I have been working hard with clothes and make-up to look "real". Recently I ended a several year relationship with my girl-friend, so I was no longer having to hide that part of my personality. Last night I got all fixed up and went to the local beauty supply store to see if I "passed" to the girl that was helping me with wigs, makeup, etc. It felt so good to hear her say, "you look great, you look passable for a woman, I thought that was a woman coming in". Her co-worker gave the same agreement.
I went to Wal-Mart, Office Depot, Ross and got coffee just to walk around. A few men commented on my looks. It felt "unreal" to finally pass as a woman. What a strange and wonderful feeling. I still can't believe it has finally happened after 36 years. It will be fun to go out more, just hope to find a support group not too far from here to go out with. My daughter accepts me so I will do some thing with her & friends in femme.
