  1. Hello everyone, I have been thinking about stories my entire life. Because I come from a family of writers and teachers and I have learned to live my "story line." Thus, I would like to help start this topic. This is one that you can share both your fantasies or to some extent your harsh realities. Some stories that you share may be your nightly dreams or maybe you like to day dream. Some of the stories you may want to tell us about may be a true story with a fantasy wrapping. (Always good to change the names) Or a completely true story about a romance or a relationship or other aspects that are affected by your cross-dressing. Some passion that is in all of us is also so good with this topic. A little guidance - When you add an item please make sure it is your original thought/s and please tell us if its fiction, based in truth, partly true or completely true. And of course use good sense when it comes to illustrating sexual details. I have several stories I will post in the next few days. So let’s post away, have some fun and have a party.
  2. It has been a while since I engaged this forum item. Lately, I have been truely experiencing a more feminized body as I have had dozens of people recognize me as a woman. I believe this has to do with why I have had the following dream. I recently had a recurring dream of my breasts being fully developed and me breast feeding (my) baby. Dawn13. Please share your stories - Dawn
  3. Last week I was called Mam four times. Even had one restaurant employee say " Welcome ladies - how are you doing" as I entered his restaurant. I have given up correcting people, actually kind of like how it makes me feel. A month ago in boy mode I was at a sports expo and had stopped at a booth selling shoe inserts. The shop/booth owner was busy and asked one of his workers to "please help this woman" I could not believe myself - how feminine I must have looked to him. (Really was not trying) Yesterday, I had two women runners make commits on my shaved legs "how are they were so perfect" and "perfect looking legs" Have any of you all had these kind of comments - even when in boy mode?

    How many times have you been mistaken as a girl

    Yesterday - twice identified as a woman. Once called mamm by a lady needing help at a gas station while I was pumping gas. The second was called a lady ("how are you ladies doing") by the waitress at a IHOP while getting dinner. I did not correct them and I was wearing all women's sportswear, legs tan and shaved, earings, my women's styled glasses. Actually everything I had on was what I would consider unisexual clothing. I really think my face and ponytail are the reasons I was coded female but this time I did not correct them so I could ask what they saw that made me appear as s woman to them. Actually enjoyed being treated as a woman. Dawn
  5. Went in to a Horton's yesterday and the woman there said to me and my wife "how are you doing ladies."  I was dressed a bit feminine but not overly so.  Still being coded almost daily as a woman and I really an not trying to go out of my way to make myself look like a woman.  Dawn

  6. It appears the site is working again - Hurrah!  And I do like the new changes in format.  Dawn

      Thanks for your feedback. We have a lot of options on how to rearrange the forum layout so let me know if you have suggestions.

      I will give it a gentle hard look and give feedback soon

      Appreciate this site - it has meant a lot to me.  :)

  7. Fun and enjoyable day yesterday. Got fitted for glasses at Lens crafters.  I purchased a very feminine woman's frame.  The lady added that my blue eyes and eyelashes really showed well and the smaller frame accented my roundish face well.  She said this could be my "fun glasses" for maybe when I go dancing.  While getting my new glasses, I was completely in women's sporty looking clothing;  sport top, Levi tight stretch jeans with small woman's belt, women's body warmer sleeveless jacket, women's running shoes, earrings and necklace, nails shaped and polished; all women's;  including bra and pink panties underneath.  I was called mam twice.  Again my voice did not seem to change how I was treated; as a woman.

  8. Recently I was on Pinterest with my own place using my name "Dawn." I coded myself as Transgender. I built a couple of boards - one called the "blur of gender" and another about feminine looking men and boys. Two weeks ago I was kicked out of Pinterest. I contested the action and the only reply I got was to read their rules; really. Was it my boards? Did I misrepresent myself. Was it a pin or pins I got from someone else that was considered offensive? There is transgender info in Pinterest so I am confused to where I may have gone wrong. I sent a second request for clarification and so far no reply. Does anyone have experience with Pinterest? I really liked the site but think it might not be transgender friendly. Dawn

    How many times have you been mistaken as a girl

    Thanks Monica, I guess by what you say is my ENERGY is female. Neat! Thanks. love and kisses. Dawn
  10. I still have a FB account as Dawn - but I made it inactive. I wonder if there are any sites besides this one that are really Transgender friendly. Bonnie mentioned a few sites she uses. Dawn

    How many times have you been mistaken as a girl

    Monica you are the best and thanks for commenting as much as you do. Seems like I always learn much from you. Latest trip and gender mix up. I was at a Ross Store in GA ready to check out, in guy mode, and the female teller said I can help you over here Miss. I thought she was talking to someone else and then I realized I was the only one there. I checked out and am quite sure she thought I was a woman. Then the next day while eating at an IHOP with friends the waitress said to me what can I get you ma'am, because I was with friends I corrected her saying "sir." She repeated "sir" but when she came back she presented me my breakfast and said ma'am can I get you anything else. This time I did not correct her as actually I was a bit flattered and later I checked the mirror to try to see what she saw. Could be my chest/breasts are showing more (Was wearing a bra but straps were almost impossible to detect), earrings, hair, wore unisex clothing - still in acceptable unisex look.

    Over 20,000 views of my site. This count is mind boggling. Maybe I can be a good influence to those I impact. Dawn Added - this is all me - wearing a sports bra and a nice running outfit - Showing two early photos to now - Can anyone see why I might be first seen as a woman now? This photo represents the best of how I feel and look today. I have changed quite a bit since I joined this site. Lost weight, longer hair, pierced ears, some breast growth, smooth small and shapely muscles, beard gone. I have reshaped and modified myself as much as I could with out going through extensive surgeries. Now much more feminine in body I am and much more aware of my being transgender. I love it when I look and feel like a woman. This is where I am and I think this is where I will remain. I expect I will take a few more steps toward physical and inward beauty. (Ask me) Thanks to all of you who have positively critiqued my photos,logs and blogs. I love and respect to all of you - Dawn

    When I say it is all me - I mean the breast and hair growth is real. I am wearing a shaping sports bra with normal padding. So neat as I do not have to wear breast forms any more. Dawn

    I Don't Care Much for Myself Tonight

    Hello Emma, I care about as you have cared about me. I noticed you were having issues with your electrolysis. When I last had it done, the better electrologist (However more expensive) I went to used a cooling gel and it helped a lot. I had my chest done my face and my legs. It was expensive and I quit the treatments when all my dark face hair was gone. I took electrolysis for about two years. I still have about 3000 hairs left on my face as I even plucked the remaining ones a couple of times, but they are all white and easily shaved and when shaved I have no shadow at all. So the electrolysis was worth it. I share your issues with losing hair. In a few weeks I will be starting hair therapy. I also go to a therapist and the goal is currently to help my marriage while accepting that I am Transgender. Have I not been trying to salvage a happy home relationship I am sure I would transition completely. So I am hoping and thinking about you and your path - some things we share and others not - wishing you love and support along your way. Dawn

    Jenner and Beauty

    I Have been following all the Jenner news. This has stirred some of my recent thinking. What is the core of why we have our feelings and want so much to change. I think there is a certain desire to see ourselves as beautiful. Women express this better than almost all men. When I put on a dress I feel changed. When I see most other men I see most of them as lazy/unkempt, fat/heavy and scuzzy. This is the excepted image of men. I do not fit this image and I know I am stared at a lot by other men, usually in restrooms, who do not expect a beautiful looking man. When I look beautiful (Handsome) day-to-day, I am often mistaken for a girl, even when in unisex or masculine clothing. I usually do not go out of my way but I am well groomed, very tan, fit and now have longer styled blond hair. I think some of why I wish I could change is rooted in the concept of beauty - and if men could also be beautiful in what is currently a woman's norm early in life - I think fewer would be unhappy with their body image and fewer would want to change. Here is another thought. I think is more acceptable to be changed completely into a woman than it is to dress and adorn ones self in a similar fashion. Yes, I would love to wear a colorful attractive dress and show off my small waist and still not try to hide that I have a somewhat feminine looking male body. However, I feel less anxiety when I go through the complete effort of hiding any maleness as I look completely like a woman. Also, I actually feel safer in woman mode as I do not see myself as a homosexual; not wishing for men to lust for me in this fashion.
  18. Was on a trip recently and stopped at a rest area to go to the restroom.  There were two attendances' there one woman and one man.  Both of them tried to tell me when it looked like I was heading for the men's room; "the women's room is over here" "here is the women's room" and show me where the women's restrooms were.  This actually occurred three times so when I finally found the men's room I proceeded directly to a closed toilet.  I am sure they thought I was in the wrong restroom.  Also,I was concerned that the men that were in there were thinking I was in the wrong bathroom.  Actually I was pleased with this confusion but I just wanted to do my duty and move on.  I was really not trying to look female on this occasion but again I guess I did.

      Photo is from a couple of weeks ago with my own hair showing.

    Is There A Place For Short-Term Relationships?

    Monica, Bonnie has some good points. You must follow the course of your heart. I am a moral person but I also understand that I am transgender, finally not lying to myself anymore. The love I share with my wife is real and is unconditional. Do we agree on everything = no. When we married she did not know I was transgender but we have worked it out. I am as close to being female as I dare to be and still keep family and friends. A compromise - yes. If I had known what I now know about myself I would likely be female today; would have transitioned as a youth. More soon - have to go again -- Dawn

    Is There A Place For Short-Term Relationships?

    Finally I have some time to respond. I really do believe in the friendship and companionship aspect of life. This means a kiss and hug, a laugh together, some shared memories. A true friend is forever - my wife - and I have been together for 40 years and we are firstly just friends. I have almost 100 other friends I have strong ties to. I kind of collect my friendships. Some know of my transgender leanings others do not. About shorter relationships these all need to be friendships to succeed. The first aspect of being a friend is acceptance and realistic expectations. One does not try to make a friend someone they are not. If you have quirkiness that is you, who you are, this is usually the last thing a friend considerers - this may be something you joke about and actually could draw you closer, as all of us who are real have our quirks. I hope this helps. I know you through your writings to be a wonderful person well deserving of many good comments and relationships. Best to you. Dawn

    Is There A Place For Short-Term Relationships?

    Companionship a issue - the need to share one's life ... Thanks Monica for asking me to respond - As it is late I will sleep on this and definitely share my thoughts with you tomorrow. I think you are a wonderful person deserving of love and compassion. The other things you mention; the you of you, these are factors of relationships but are not the drivers. See you tomorrow. Best to you - Dawn
  24. Mike - Thanks for working this. The photos I can now load I am sure are lower quality because of my having to lower the resolution. Still I am able to post. Thanks again - Dawn

    Dress size???

    Some thought about your great question - I guess I am very fortunate; if I am unisex dressed; ponytail, earrings, unisex glasses and jeans/shirts and start looking in the women's section in the store I am usually coded as a woman. It is my own nerves and my voice that can give me away but not even that seems to make a big difference. (Stats - I am 5'7.5" currently 158. When I am at my optimum diet weight, lowest 138 - Funny I am between a size 8 to 10 women's dress). One time I was shopping and I actually had some women's sports items I was carrying that I was considering and the store clerk asked me if I needed to try them on and without pause led me to one of the women's dressing rooms. Interesting is I have had this occur several times. The plus is, often I will enter a dressing room full of discarded items and if they are my size I try all of them on. A lot of times I will scope out an item in a store and then buy it on line. I have had to return a couple of items; tops/skirts, and I have never had a problem. I don't even hide my male name and I am quite sure most of the sales staff knows I am a feminine male. My favorite dresses are ones I have bought through e-Bay. Does this give you another answer to your question? Below is my favorite dress - size 8 - an eBay purchase. "Proof in pudding." Best to you - Dawn
