Why am I mentioning this up front? Because some women have a problem with this lifestyle, and it can make or break a relationship.
No, I'm not gay -- not that there's anything wrong with that. Anybody who thinks otherwise is paying too much attention to stereotypes. (Check out my Journal for more on this.)
Most of my feminine wardrobe (size 16) consists of everyday casual dresses (nothing provocative -- well, not very). When I come home from work, I throw on a casual dress or a set of feminine sweats to help me unwind. I like to crossdress and go out occasionally in the evening on weekends. When I'm not in a dress, I look like any average guy. (We crossdressers are everywhere. Your co-worker or neighbor may be one.)
I'm usually quiet. I tend to be an introvert. While I enjoy the company of a small group of people from time to time, I like having my own space. According to the Myers-Briggs test, I have an ISTJ personality, and the Myers-Briggs description of ISTJ people is almost a perfect description of me. I'm very independent-minded and do my own thing, and tend not to be too worried about what people think about me. (Read my Journal about this too.) So, I have never felt troubled by my desire to crossdress or thought there was something wrong with me. I'm analytical, thoughtful, and have a calm temperment. I'm also gentle, down-to-earth, very open-minded, and loyal.
To sum it up, I'm an introvert, independent-minded, atheist crossdresser. Pretty unique, don't you think?
