Hello everyone. I’ve been on here just about one week so it’s time to introduce myself.
My story is very similar to many I’ve read here, and I’m surprised, and delighted, that I’m not the only one transitioning this late in life. Story is, wished and wished I’d been born a girl instead of a boy when young, went on to lifelong crossdressing, always closeted, but recently my circumstances and probably maturity made it possible to start what I thought would never happen. So thank you everyone for sharing.
Yesterday I went out for the first time in full femme. Grocery shopping in skirt, heels, full makeup (light for me) and small breast forms. Part of me was saying, keep paying attention to your walking, another part was saying “I’m really doing this,” and the other part just enjoyed the feeling of being out as a woman and not just at home. It’s a grocery store in a very progressive part of town but even so I expected some looks, but I didn’t notice any. Not the other times I’ve gone out more partially dressed either. The only comments I’ve gotten were compliments on my long cardigan and my nail polish. And it was my first time driving my stick shift car in heels.
I’ve been on HRT for about a month now with no problems. I’ve also noticed that my shopping for clothes has changed from trying to look sexy to trying to look pretty. I’m probably dressing too young, but I’m really enjoying wearing things I would have worn if I’d been a cis woman. Simple but cute, like a short denim skirt — almost mini — and pretty but also comfortable shoes.
I don’t think I would have started venturing out so soon if I hadn’t found such a large and open community, especially now in the time of COVID. So, thanks all for being here.
