So last Saturday I'm sitting in the family room watching TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress" marathon while my wife is on her computer obsessing about her fantasy football team.

I find that my wife is the least girly woman I know. She's not "butch," but she loves hockey, going fishing, going bowling, and she adores going camping. She's long been an LGBTQ+ ally. I've always profiled as a "man's man" but that was for survival. I grew up in a pretty toxic culture and in a family in which, though my dad loved me, both he and my brother were at the far-hetero end of the Kinsey scale and engaged in womanizing. They had a real gift for seduction, something that I never picked up and quite frankly abhorred—it was like women were not something to be seized or bedded but rather adored for ends beyond my own sexual drive. I'm straight, but my heart skips a beat for anything submissive sexually. My wife, dontcha know, is herself a sub sexually.😏

@SallyAnne32, wouldn't ya know that she, like your wife, is having a tough time wrapping her head around my "new-found" "infatuation" with all things female/feminine. It's one thing to profile as open-minded, but it's another to have to open that mind in terms of your husband admitting his Crossdreaming and researching lingerie and women's dress online. Her heart is there, but she is in the process of processing. Might yours be in that realm?

the three most important strategies are...
1. Reinvent what 'being a man' means to you - .
2. Reinvent what 'being a woman' means to you - .
3. Mash together 1 and 2... and create the new you.

Yes, Bethany, our wives do sound quite similar in many respects. It is hard to be “girly” with someone who isn’t all that feminine herself. I will say that my wife does seem more sympathetic as she begins to understand that this is not just a sexual thing for me anymore. We’ve had some nice discussions about makeup recently. I think her biggest complaint is that I spend money on clothes that I will never wear outside the house.

Good luck on the shaving this weekend.
