Well I'm getting closer to a decision. The woman I'm dating at the moment is a good friend... but she doesn't want more than that so thats cool. My man is being very consistent and my family seem to be accepting so subject to him being who he says he is, keeping his promise, and things working in person I'm putting him at the top of the list.
Every day is a totally awesome day
Every day provides opportunities and challenges
Every challenge leads to an opportunity
Every fear faced leads to one more strength
Every strength leads to greater success
Success leads to self esteem
Self Esteem leads to happiness.
Cherish every day.

Hmm suspicious activity today. Asking for itunes gift cards for phone data when you can't buy phone data with gift cards. Gonna give him a chance to explain himself but I suspect I know what the outcome is...

Sorry it didn't work out, but I'm glad you've got a good friend who you can go out with and take your mind off it!

Take care Kelly,

Sonja.

Whoa.... definitely... shields up and get ready to go to warp speed.

So very sad to hear about this turn of events.
Be careful out there, it is a dangerous world for a new woman.

An action packed weekend!

On Friday night I went to the movies with my lady friend once again and once again didn't end up coming home till the next morning. This time things got a tad closer I suspect that could get closer still if I pushed the issue but I don't really want to force things. Woke up 4am a bit confused... where exactly am I? Oh yeah that's right. One interesting thing she did say. Looked at me and said "You've got all that, why are you interested in me?" (referring to my body). Now this makes me wonder... what are people seeing what I'm not? I certainly don't think I have "all that"!

Anyway, got home and chatted for a while, caught up with some other friends, and took my daughter to the public fireworks display conveniently five minutes down the road from house. No effort to 'pass' in any way shape or form and as usual no one gets it wrong anymore. :)

Monday I have my surgery consult, looking forward to that!

Another totally awesome day.

That post is a really big deal for me. Im 6' tall slender. I'm a roughneck knock about sort of guy on the surface. But men & women alike are starting to comment on my appearance. I would dearly love to be percieved as female but I fall short in key areas.
 Please tell me what it is like to pass. To interact with men & women & be accepted  as the fairer sex.
 I feel like I may be entering the awkard phase between genders and I welcome it wholeheartedly.
  Your story is intriguing  by the way.
 Yours truly, Kirsten.

What is it to pass? You go from looking like a man to being somewhere in the middle (the hardest bit I found) then... the stares just stop. Women smile at you - you're in the club. You get conversations that include "us women...". Men look at... other attributes and they get both more friendly and more standoffish at the same time. I find my opinion has somehow become less important at school (being male has its advantages in eductation!) but at the same time I get more trust - I'm not an evil man after all lol.

To me its a feeling of... coming home to a place that has always been waiting.

I love that statement, Kelly. I reminds me of a quote from Maya Angelou:

“The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”

I used that quote in my coming out letter on Facebook over a year ago. I never thought I’d get to that place, but here I am 13 months later, living the life, just as you are. It can really happen. Congratulations on getting there, sister.

Well. tomorrow is the big day. I find out if surgery is going to happen. Nervous!

Another date lined up for this coming Friday this time to a local restaurant. I don't know where this path is taking me but its breaking the bonds that hold me back. I think its important to break free of those. I almost feel like I'm losing my remaining self image anxieties and becoming more and more me every day. People keep saying how good I look etc and they can't all be wrong!

Went to the pool with my 7 year old again this weekend and realized that even though what I do have left makes a barely noticeable bulge I don't care anymore - at all. I have no body anxiety left. I feel like the person who lived on the inside lives on the outside now and She is confident, pretty, and doesn't give a crap about what people think!

@krobinson103
Yes, for sure it will be a memorable and anticipated day for you to find out about your proposed surgery.   I trust that you get the news that you are hoping for....   "Nervous" is normal... I hope that the nervousness turns into joy for you.

.... hmmm.... another date!  Exciting times and new territory to explore with your new body and emotions... please be careful and allow your mind to modulate your heart.....   slow and careful would be my unsolicited advice if you were to ask.
Note:  Don't plan give away any iTune cards to your date!!! LOL   :eusa_doh:

ahh, the POOL, that's right you are coming into your Summer season soon....  it took me a moment to comprehend your comment... right now it is snowing hard here and just 13 deg F (-11C)
Your confidence and self-assurance are your best weapons against those that do not want to accept you.  You are correct, we should not care what the people think that do not know us and do not care for us.   A good attitude for you to have.   I trust that you and your daughter had a great time.

As always, thank you for chronicling your adventures and sharing your experiences....

I will be looking for your next report when you feel so led to post it.
Hugs and well wishes,
Danielle

Hey Kelly,
Hope your meeting goes well. Correct me if I'm wrong but your date you just had was with a cis-woman?
I'm glad so many things are going so well for you!

Take care,

Sonja.

Yes, my date was with a cis-woman. The meeting went ok. The therapist didn't forward his letter (rang right after the appointment and asked them sort that asap). My height, weight, and blood pressure are good and the wait time is likely to four months.

T minus four months and counting.
