For years now I've wanted to go out to celebrate Halloween in a dress, but I always chickened out at the last minute. Yesterday I ordered this cute little Minnie Mouse dress, and a friend of mine is coming with me (also a CD). I'm still really nervous about following through on this.
Once I get to New York I think it'll be okay, the main thing is getting past my neighbors. I live in a small apartment house and we are all practically on top of each other. With my luck, there's little doubt they will all see me in my Minnie dress.
I've never been someone who cares all that much about what others think of me, but once a person sees you in a dress, that's it. It's a bell that can't be un-rung.
Also it's bringing up a lot of feelings from my divorce. Crossdressing is not one of the central reasons why I was dumped, but it certainly didn't help. My exwife always hated that part of me, and since that experience I have been even more guarded about who knows about my dressing.
If anyone would like to share their experiences of the first time they went out dressed, I would appreciate it. Especially girls like me who don't pass. How did you get over your fears, or did you have no fears?
