    Maybe it’s the bomb lighting, your killer outfit, or your “I woke up like this” glow. Regardless, some days you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and just think: “Damn.” But what if, when you stopped to take pause, you became aroused by your own reflection? Is there’s a difference between feeling yourself and actually being attracted to yourself?

      I pity the fool! As Mr. T would say; I pity the fool that wasn’t attracted to themselves.  As several people have indicated; self-awareness to include attraction is an up and down thing.  Not because you are on and off attracted to yourself, but because we are all busy.  Multitasking has been shown to be a skill set that doesn’t really exist, everyone attends to one thing at a time.  You may switch your attention quickly and smoothly, but people do not think of two things at a time.

      I pity the fool that sincerely isn’t attracted to themselves, because that condition needs counseling, needs a better social support group, needs compassion.  Truly never being attracted to yourself will lead to many social ills all the way to suicide.  People do kill themselves, so this profound decision that one is unattractive does happen.

      Research indicates that changes in appearance take 5 days to accept as the new normal for that person; that research was based on a study of woman getting a significantly different hair styling cut.  That being said; most of us see ourselves many times over many years; by nature that becomes our normal.  Slight enhancements, new cloths, whiter teeth, etc; lead to increased appreciation of self.  Maybe we are only attractive a small piece of ourselves, but that is still us.  In order to maintain a self-supportive version of mental health we must find ourselves attractive.  If you don’t find yourself attractive; get help.

      I myself, have always found at least something about me attractive.  After I retired from the military after 34 years, I ballooned up to 270 lbs.; girl: let me tell you, that was one hard time to find myself attractive.  But that was a good version of “unattractive”; I knuckled down and have since lost 70 of those lbs.  I need to lose more and get down to the 175 lbs. I was in the military, but meanwhile I find myself more and more attractive everyday.  Self-attraction gets us out of bed to exercise, try to improve our makeup skills, drives us to EnFemme for some sexy cloths.  Self-attraction lets us walk down the street as a woman, unashamed, confident.

      Eight months ago I started hormone replacement therapy; it was since then that I lost all that weight, it was since then that I restarted liking me and finding myself attractive.  I remember walking across in front of our large bathroom mirror, and thinking how gross I looked.  My whole life I was too busy to attend to my desire to be a girl, plus being born in 1952; it would be 50 years before any iota of social acceptance would occur.  I retired at 66, and for the next two years did not take care of myself.  I finally at 67 broke down and saw my doctor and cried for a hour explaining how I always wanted to be a girl.  That was nine months ago.

      I was unattractive to myself, and I sought help.  I am so much happier now it is freaky.  I brought a new bikini from Macy’s the other day, they fit, but I pouch out here and there a bit.  I am going to fix those pouches; so a desire to be attractive to yourself is a good thing.  I find myself attractive now, but I want to find myself much more attractive in the coming months and years.  This whole discussion is about “Mental Health”.  I don’t quite want to have sex with myself yet, but give me a year.

      Love

      I love looking at myself. I love modeling a new thong or a cute outfit in front of the mirror. I never leave the house without checking myself out and making sure that my ass looks cute in whatever I am wearing. It makes me feel sexy and confident, and besides, a girl can’t stay single forever. I guess I’m a tease.

      Do I find myself sexy?

      Well, sometimes yes, sometimes very yes. But also sometimes no. There are days when everything just clicks and I feel very sexy, very attractive and yes it turns me on. I become both physically and emotionally excited and of course I feel the need for release. On those days I long for the attention of another and mourn the fact that it’s not available to me.

      On the days when the answer is no, it’s a drain. I’m sure everyone, or at least most people who are honest with themselves, have days like this. It’s the I’m too fat, or OMG look at those wrinkles or whatever and it’s difficult to get in motion and go about my day.

      Am I attracted to myself? I would say no. I have good points and bad points and knowing what I know I have to say I’m not attracted to myself. I would say that if I am attracted to someone else and they don’t respond that I feel they are missing out on something good. But no, I’m not attracted to myself.

      I generally love what I see in the mirror now, unlike how I used to feel.

      I delayed transition partially out of a fear that I’d make an ugly woman.

      Nope, I think I’m cute AF when dolled up en femme.

      I have become very attractive to myself but it comes and definitely goes . No pun intended lol . A few times I guess I just surprised myself , I’d get completely dressed up and find myself looking in the mirror instead of my phone 🤷🏻‍♀️ . I hope it’s self love ?!  Definitely not a regular thing , I kinda felt like the girl version of Christian Bale in American Psycho 🤣 .

      Yes I am attracted to myself. I started this transition about 16 months ago and at that time I had NO idea that this would work in my favor and that I would become and look like a very attractive woman.

      I love to look at myself in the mirror and many people like to look at me at meet me. I am 56 years old but when en femme and doing my thing I look so much better/younger.

      At this point in time, I consider myself pre-hrt and in the social transitioning stage. I live my life part time as a woman, just to see how it goes. It’s going well and it has cause my social circle to increase significantly compared to me as my ‘male-self’. I do work hard every day to look good though. Can’t wait to start hrt…

      I don’t always get seriously aroused, but I do feel a little perk when I look at myself when I’m femme, esp if I’m well dressed in a short dress and heels. What I find attractive in myself is what I find attractive in GG’s.

      Hmmmm…..

      Certainly I would not date myself as I am a mess, way too high maintenance.  However in the ability to feeling sexy and confident I do like myself enough to look good and try to look better. But does it make me attracted to myself? Self love? In a way yes but not sexually. I feel looking at your self in the mirror and seeing … well perceiving what you look like and trying to make both images look there best requires a bit of self love. It is all just not a glam up to get a date btw, however when you get a compliment it is a confirmation that you must have done something right. Now on a flip side when I see someone who did take the time to look good physically and mentally I am attracted to them, if for nothing else but to get some to rub off on me, plus the obvious reasons.

       

      Just my thoughts.

      No , not attractive to myself , don’t think there would be enough batteries for B.O.B for that .

      However though , I’m very good looking and my males friends drool somethings depending how I’m dressed for the day .

      I always get hit on no matter where I go and I love the attention ,had three strangers ask me to marry them …

      Ok so I’m not going to vote and here is why, I don’t think I’m sexually attracted to myself per se but I think I’m sexually attractive. Idk it’s odd but I love the woman I’m becoming and of course I think she’s hott! Lol

      Absolutely after much deep thought, and past relationship experience I believe it’s my main reason I started crossdressing. For me in a sense, it greatly diminishes the frustration and complications of trying to find a significant other. A dress, wig, chain, mirror, and a little makeup and boom found them.

      I can never be attracted to whom I am now, physically! I am absolutely head over heels in love with the woman I am going to become.

      I cringe at my own reflection! When I venture into public I can see the sideways glances, I remind myself that I can’t feel how they are feeling and I can’t see what they are thinking. Even still, when I get home and look into the mirror,…………… I’M JUST SIMPLY APPALLD AT WHAT I SEE!

      THIS ISN’T ME!

      I would like to add that I have a very fit, attractive body, I do have a pretty face with KILLER eyes. (Toot toot).

      The reason I can’t except my body is because of the image of “a man” when I was leaning what that was, was a very, very bad image to me and it’s sickening knowing how men treated women. This I was seeing as I was just learning that life was bigger than me.

      Now, I do love myself for who I am, I am ashamed of who I think other people see me as.

      I voted possibly sometimes , i mean when i’m fully dressed up , dress on , the feel of pretty lingerie , panty , bra , slip , hose , heels , make up all dolled up i do feel sexy and i think i look cute . Just look at all the products made possible to women for this very thing . A lot of company’s depend on making a woman beautiful , as trans women we fall into this category . And of coarse when we are in drab mode , not so pretty feeling , things get in the way and we have no choice but to endure this part , family , work etc. Regardless of my dress i try to feel as fem as possible , i think fem there for i am , right ? Remember , regardless of how you are dressed , think and feel pretty inside , its you and it will always be you , you made the choice long ago . We are pretty inside , out when we can . We are pretty women , here us purr . Leslie

      I voted Hell yeah as I can see i look good… but dont become aroused over myself.  I think this maybe gender euphoria, that positive association of gender, of seeing the real you and celebrating that you look amaze!

          I’m sorry Stormy,

          “Applaud” was supposed to be “Appalled”.

          STUPID AUTOCORRECT!

          I hear what you are saying, but I’m not there.

          • #93954

            Oh???? And why not?? I mean why do you not feel your there yet? It was the attraction to myself ,lemme see how put this…. Got me to be able to come out in public and everyone I know and expose my true Identity. Perhaps there’s something or someone your lacking…. as far as self or peer support I kept hanging out with women and asking questions  that would hopefully give me insite to this new world but also the uplifting as far as the awesome responses I would get about how I looked as a woman like was or did I pass as one?? Silly questions now i realize but made major impact on boosting inner self and self esteem at same time.😍😍😍👻👻🧚‍♀️🧚‍♀️💃💃🤙

            It comes from my late father. I watched him beat my mother when I was 6 yrs old, my mother intised him knowing how he would react. Yet, he made the choice to do it!

            I was my father’s first born”son”, he was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness with 7 older sisters. I look just like my father, I feel like a disgrace to all woman kind!
