Introduction
« on: October 28, 2020, 04:53:08 am »
Hi all,

I'm 37 and trying to get started as an mtf. My spouse is, at least mostly, on board, but this whole thing is super daunting. I have dreamed about transitioning since I first learned it was a thing, so as a teenager, but its a different thing to actually do it. Looking forward to talking with people here as I feel my way forward.

Dear Jdamb,

Welcome to Susan's place.

This website is a place for anyone with any type of gender related issue to discuss our condition with others who have found their own answer as well as those who are still struggling. We have many members here who are under age and we try hard to keep Susan's Place "Family Friendly".

We are a moderated website to avoid spam, bad language and pornography. We have Terms of Service that spell out what is acceptable and what is not. I will post the links to the ToS below along with other important information.

Again, welcome to Susan's Place.  ;)

Welcome to Susan's Place @Jdamb !

My wife and I have been married over 36 years. I transitioned in Feb 2018. It was rough going between my wife and I for quite a while, but it looks like our marriage will survive. Transitioning does seem like an impossible dream in the beginning, but now I live my dream every day. I wish you all the best on your journey.

Love always -- Jessica Rose

Hi Jdamb!

Welcome!    :)


Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Welcome here and welcome to the journey. Walking the journey is certainly something different from fantasizing about the journey.

The fact that your spouse is trying to continue the relationship is incredibly positive...that’s the most important thing to focus on. Make sure you are constantly communicating with and listening to your spouse.

We’re all here to listen to and help you.
