40 something, ..ok 46 year old tgirl. I've only been dressing about three and a half years. After many years of hiding those feelings, first from my family, and then from my partner, I decided to blurt it all out, and see where it took me. Amazingly my mrs fully accepted it.
I remember sitting in a hotel room stumbling across words for the better part of half an hour, while we were on a weekend break. How i'd managed to keep all this hidden, not ever dressing before, even as a child, because the thought of being caught by my brothers, or my mother were too horrific to bear. How i'd joined the RAF to try and knock some 'macho' into me. How i'd got engaged to a girl years before, again in an attempt to 'block' those feelings of having a need, and a desire to dress in womens clothes. On finally finishing, my partners first words were, "Christ, I thought you'd brought me here to finish the relationship. Well, if that's all it is, I have a black dress back at home that will fit you better than it ever fitted me".
The very next week, back at home, 'Julia' was born. That was back in November 2007. We got married in April of this year, 2011. I've never been happier.
