A close friend sent me a link to this forum, so thought I'd join and see what it's like.
My first experience with crossdressing happened when I was in my late teens, an at-the-time girlfriend thought it would be amusing to put make up on me and have me wear her night dress, which was actually quite fun. After that it wasn't really something I had thought about for a long time. Then about 5 years ago, I had the urge to buy a couple of women's tops while I was out shopping and everything has slowly evolved from there.
At first it was something I only really did at home on my own, until 2010 when I went to The London Fetish Weekend dressed up and really enjoyed it. My last relationship turned out to be a little restrictive, but I've been single again for the past year and finding my feminine side has become a much stronger part of who I am. I have learnt a great deal about myself over the past 12 months especially, which has left me a little confused with what direction to go in from here.
I'm hoping to meet some new friends and keep discovering more about myself until everything clicks in to place.
Hi Misti - Thanks for joining! You sound pretty centered with what is going on with you and I think that is great! I'm going to copy your post to the transgendered section and the drag section just because you may get different perspectives from our moderators in those two categories.
well, i tried to move it to both places but apparently that isn't possible. So, if you think it might be helpful to you, please post in the transgender section.....
Hi there misti
I'm Whitney the moderator of this group I can completly understand where you are comeing from I started dressing in girl dresses and just realized I looked good and that made me feel happy in myself and then I started going out in drag by then I was known as a T-girl that changed quick now people now what I am because I made myself to be shown as a queen are you a what we call gender bender (a person that dresses as oposite sex for self-pleasure or confidence)as a drag If your still looking for your self that good and that can take a long while trust me
If you have any questions please feel more that welcome to send me a PM I haven't been on in a while but I'm back
I've found that being more confident while dressed up as been a natural occurrence. I certainly didn't find that the first few times but I guess as it's become more 'natural' for me, the confidence comes from being able to be myself and not hide things as much. Definitely still finding myself, although I'm hoping to have much more freedom to explore and discover as much as possible after September as will be starting uni.
