I THINK I PASSED TODAY?
« on: June 08, 2016, 09:12:00 am »
I cannot believe this! I've only just started my social transition and I managed to pass!! I went out with a nurse who visits children in care, and we went down to a cafe right next to the sea. It was wonderful. We went up and ordered. I felt good before I left home, I knew I was getting close to looking like a boy.

I didn't speak when I ordered. I just pointed at the ice cream and slice of cake I wanted. I didn't expect any else, other than my order... But what do I get?

"An ice cream for the man" as she passed it down to me. I felt so... Amazing. It felt natural. She was talking to me. Nobody else behind me. To me. As she handed me MY ice cream. I AM THE MAN.

A MAAAAAN. *external and internal high*

When she said it, at first I was thinking to myself: "what? Me? MEEEE?" But oh god, did it feel good. Most satisfaction I've ever had.

I started questioning it when we where driving back home. Maybe it's just slang? Maybe all her customers are "the man"? Or maybe I AM THE MAN. (I'm never going to get over this, sorry.)

How did you people feel when you first passed? Where you expecting it? When does this buzz and emotional high stop, and just become the everyday thing? Does this even count as passing?

(I must thank the amazing people on this website who have given me tips on how to pass... I think we're getting somewhere...)

I have always loved being identified as a boy/man... ever since I was a kid. I am pre everything and in my late 30s and the delight hasn't gone away.

It's such a nice feeling, isn't it? I'm pre everything too, which is what shocks me... It's such a good feeling, it's like I'm on top of the world! Like I can achieve anything I put my mind too! Think I'll start going out more... I like this :D

I've been gendered properly for a couple of years and I still get a rush.

Awesome!!

Same with me - I am getting correctly addressed about 80% of the time now. I remember the first time i was with my wife and in a restaurant and the wait person said, "Would you ladies like a window seat? " Such a great moment.
