I edited this video 4 years ago, prior to coming out and living full time. It was difficult to cut, because my marriage was on the rock, and it proved to be prophetic.
I think Alexis is very fortunate to have a seemingly understanding fiancee. Not many relationships can withstand this. We need to proceed with absolute caution, and weigh the possible outcomes. Is it really worth it? Is my cross-dressing so important in my life that I need to share it with my significant other, or is it just a hobby, an occasional thrill that I can do on my own?
I will say woman can tend to be hostile towards their significant other engaging in cross-dressing. Gender is something that makes a partner unique. I think woman tend to feel their femininity is threatened when their husband or boyfriend engage in being “en-femme”.
If it is a very important aspect of a person’s live, they need to be upfront right away, before the years go by, and suddenly a woman is faced with your hidden secret.
My marriage did not survive, and I am still dealing with the ramifications 4 years down the road.
Weigh the risks! Use caution! And for God sake be honest with yourself before you start sharing your life with another person.
