At 46 I am a late bloomer and have just started my journey to 'I don't know where'.  Susan's is extremely supportive and I read so many posts as part of trying to understand lots of things about transitioning and how other people have dealt with their issues and own personal journey. 

I kept all this hidden for a zillion years and have done some pretty tough male jobs, but I have always been more female than male.  It only returned this year via 'second life' of all things and then I found this site and never knew so many other people felt the same way.  I don't know where I am heading, but I do know that I visit this site at every opportunity and read what others have written and look at their photos.  Oh, and laugh at all the jokes. 

I see everyone here as what they want to be and not as they are now.  So much so that sometimes when a girl asks a question about something I think to myself: 'Why would a girl have trouble with that?  Then remember that they are still becoming girls, silly I know, but true story.

I love this site totally.

I come here for the high quality colitas and the
complimentary "I love me jackets" with every room.




"I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you,
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

So let's make the most of this beautiful day,
Since we're together, we might as well say,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?" - Fred Rogers

What kind of hotel are y'all running here? No wine, no exit, no trolling (okay, that's a good thing), and lots of happy friendly, sharing, group huggie kind of people everywhere? I think I'll just stick around a few more years. :)

Dang it's all my fault, they're just trying to cover for me. There was plenty off fine wine to go around for all & they even locked it up till we all made it here...I busted in & drank it all...I am so sorry, I promise I will never drink any more wine until tommorrow & this time I really mean it!

I came to learn and not be alone, I stay because I seem to have found some incredibly beautiful ppl to share things with when I have no live person to do the same.

I needed answers and friends to relate and identify with.

I've learned allot about myself and others and have met several wonderful people
The main things to remember in life are Love, Kindness, Understanding and Respect - Always make forward progress

Superficial fanny kissing friends are a dime a dozen, a TRUE FRIEND however is PRICELESS

My selections were:

To gain knowledge
To share knowledge & experiences (with other SO's or whatever)
To become part of the online community
To understand my SO
To support my SO (not least of all via the aforementioned understanding)
Because I know nothing about transgender lives (but learning)

Initially to give my wife a forum where she could express her concerns and frustrations as a SO. Since things have settled down and she now accepts what is happening to her the family and me (Thanks Susan) Im finding less reason to come here. Its more out of habit now.

I come here mainly because this is the one-stop-shop for anything that deals with gender identity. There isn't another comparable place on the Internet.

I wasn't going to comment on this, I did fill out the poll but what LordKAT said just gonged inside my head.

To not be alone.

We all have our own reasons for coming here. Isn't it wonderful that a resource such as Susan's exists?

I originally found susans.org while looking on google for TS forums.  At first I wasn't sure I would like it here because you gotta be tough cuz people are tough on you.  But i do like it here, now that certain people understand me a bit better.  I  never meant to do anything bad here, that was not my intention.  My intentions was to gain knowledge, meet other people, and lots more stuff that was listed on the poll.

I've met a few really cool people here.  I hope to meet more, if they would take the time to understand me.  Nobody's perfect, I know.  I hope to get to understand you all as well.

Thank you.  :)

Well, I think that we all kind of evolve through being here and that the reasons we are here tend to change over time. Like for me, when I first started, it was more for a sense of community and to learn. I feel like I did that (and continue to do that) a lot in the beginning especially. Once I felt comfortable walking my path, walk I did! I walked and walked.

One thing I do like doing here is documenting my journey. I remember when I came here I was reading many blogs and just learning from different people's experiences. One thing I swore I would do some day is return the favor. So...here I am. I started documenting at the very beginning and now here I am two and a half years later (wow, has it REALLY been that long!!) and I feel like I'm getting near the end of my journey. Now, that doesn't mean I'm leaving or anything, I just find that the urgency I used to have, the frantic angst that would fuel late-night blog entries and what-the-heck-am-I-supposed-to-do-now moments has really not been around.

I remember thinking how I'd never know what my life would be like in the future, like I was just unsure how everything would turn out, but I hung on to my faith in myself and my perseverance to get through anything. I had and have awesome friends who have been there every step of the way and that's helped too. Nice question Julie :) Meghan

As LordKAT and Living in grey said.

To be not alone.

To offer help as others have helped me.

I have arisen from a lonely and dark part of life thanks to you all.

I do not think I could survive the unspeakable horror of being in the wrong body without the love of you all.

I came here to make friends and for a better understanding of why i love being a women. And also to know that i am not alone in this journey.
I always wanted to be a women.
